“More and more of the objects we use in our daily lives include software, from cars to communication devices to toys. In the digital world you never really own that software, you’re simply given a licence to use it.
So what does that mean for our notion of “ownership”. If your car won’t work without the software that controls the engine, does it really make sense to talk of owning the vehicle? New York University’s Jason Schultz has his doubts.
Also iFixit’s Kyle Wiens and his crusade for the right to hack and repair. And Fredrik Stromberg talks to us about a new form of encryption that could be a life saver for human rights activists and journalists.”
