The right to be the (prime) beneficiary of whatever is created from our 'cognitive surplus'.

Flo Parallel: This is an extension to the 'Right to get Revenue' as it was suggested above. The core point here is, that if something is the fruit of aggregated user-labour, it should be of use for those very users and ideally for everybody else – something that is not always the case in crowdsourcing.
Work done by 'the many' for free should not be used by or be useful just for 'the few'.
If a product that is being 'harvested from the hive' is not useful for those in 'the hive' or 'the crowd' or the community of users, it is all the more important that the direct or indirect labour by the users is compensated with a fair share of revenue; given that revenue is being made. Where there is no revenue, usefulness becomes all the more important!
This of course leads to another point: It should be transparent to us users who is making profit with our contributions and to what extent.
By the way, this issue has been discussed at lenght and very much in favour of the user in Jaron Lanier's latest book 'Who Owns the Future', and he in turn point back to Ted Nelson's seminal vapour-ware Project Xanadu.
