POCLAD

The Program on Corporations, Law, and Democracy (POCLAD) is an activist collective of a dozen-or-so members, who research the history of corporations in the United States. They are some of the main circulators of the notion that corporate personhood—which gives corporations some of the same legal rights as real human beings—is at the center of the problems regarding corporations. They also publish a newsletter three times a year called By What Authority (ISSN 1524-1106) English for quo warranto, a legal phrase that questions illegitimate exercise of privilege and power, which they claim reflects an unabashed assertion of the right of the sovereign people to govern themselves.
