Info Policy books

I'm putting together a list of noteworthy Info Policy books published in 2009. There's a few "most important" lists in various info-tech blogs; not sure how a book gets to be "important" so I'll leave it at "noteworthy" for now.

Communication Power by Manuel Castells

Republic 2.0 by Cass Sunstein. (not exactly an Info Policy book but has policy implications).

Community, Space and Online Censorship by Scott Beatie. ( has interesting points of comparison of US, UK, and Australian policies regarding Internet regulation).

Viral Spiral: How the Commoners Built a Digital Republic of Their Own by David Bollier

In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace by David G. Post

The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind
by James Boyle
