What are commons rights?
1. The common pool resource – whatever that is: fish, meadows, rivers etc.
2. Stakeholders that have an interest in preserving the commons. This could be local farmers, fishermen, or any local citizens.
3. A set of agreed rules that people have to abide by to protect the commons against what David Bollier called vandals, shirkers and other wreckers.
