This chapter constructs a diagram and framework for a participatory public space. It opens a discussion on the application of the concept of a participatory diagram of public space and a detailed and exhaustive analysis of a number of major policy initiatives in the realm of information society in several countries and nations. It discusses the participatory theory of public space and how it begins with the normative basis for information structures. Several key issues in information society policies have been identified in this chapter such as the principles and criteria for minimum conditions of non-discriminatory access to the information network by individuals or groups; positive content regulation to guarantee adequacy of information services; rules on content and infrastructure ownership; the structure of intellectual property rights and proprietary rights governing content ownership; rules on governance, accountability, and public interest standards in functioning and development of the multimedia public sphere, the implications of privatization law; construction of the competitive order of the information society; and the provisions to ensure priority on citizens' constitutional rights to expression and information.

Keywords:   public space, information society, participation rights, information access, intellectual property rights, proprietary rights, privatization law
