             What is the source?

   „Law establishes rights that individuals can
    invoke against their own government (Bill of
    Rights)” Lawrence Lessig, Code ..., p. 235

   „Rights derive from the inherent dignity of the
    human person” - UN Covenant of Civil and Political Rights
            Stakeholders
     Who seized the public sphere?
  Centers of political power beyond the

                     state
 How to understand: „individuals within

    state’s territory and subjected to its
                 jurisdiction”
             Third party effect
