Resolving Disputes Over Space explores the analogy between disputes over uses of physical space and disputes over virtual space.

Just as there are conflicts over regulation of land use in urban communities, there are divergent visions of how content should be regulated on the Internet. These conflicts raise questions over how to balance the interests of individuals with those of the public, whether to rely on markets or on government regulation and how to design institutions that create effective solutions rather than exacerbate social divisions.
