Before asking people to work together, work for you, or assign work to each other, its best to choose a model for how rights are going to be handled. It's a matter of some ethical urgency to delineate and preserve people's individual rights as well as to create a regime of rights that foster a climate of creativity and additive collaboration. It's equally important to educate participants so that they fully understand what rights they retain, what rights they give up, and what rights they must respect before rolling up their sleeves and getting to work.
