Resisting commercialization of water supply

Water is part of the earth's heritage and must be preserved in the public domain for all time and be protected by strong local, national and international laws.
Who owns water? Should anyone? Should it be privatized? What rights do transnational corporations have to buy water systems? Should it be traded as a commodity in the open market? What laws are needed to protect water? What is the role of government? How do those in water- rich countries share with those in water-poor countries? Who is the custodian for nature's lifeblood?
