Hardware (Physical Capital) that has only a SINGLE owner is the
trivial case. That is why hardware cheap enough to have just a SINGLE
owner such as Personal Computer (PC), Rep-Rap, Desktop Manufacturing
and other avenues that allow a SINGLE owner are so attractive to the
P2P researchers: it side-steps the enormously difficult issues of
JOINT ownership of Physical Sources.
