This is the Public Domain is an effort to create a permanent international commons. The land will be free to everyone, and will be held in perpetuity. In 2003, a 2.64 acre parcel of land was purchased to serve as the site for the proposed public domain. Located in Tehachapi, California, sharing of this commons will be initiated when a juridical solution for public handover is found.
The project to date has involved the purchase of land and research into legal strategies by which to hand over all rights associated with ownership to the global public. Mineral rights will also be acquired before the land is handed over. For more information see here.
