Grid computing enables a global e-science infrastructure that has the potential to become a technically complex supercomputing infrastructure, distributed among geographically disparate locations and providing higher processing power and larger data storage. This chapter discusses the importance of a “soft” infrastructure of e-science by focusing on the electronic Diagnostic Mammography National Database (eDiaMoND) pilot project in the United Kingdom. The project was launched to create a database of digital mammography images using Grid technology. The chapter discusses the intellectual property rights and ownership issues concerning images in the eDiaMoND project and highlights the need for e-science collaborations to include, at their project design stage, plans for creating a functioning working culture.

Keywords:   e-science, soft infrastructure, United Kingdom, Grid computing, collaborations, images, Diagnostic Mammography National Database, mammography, intellectual property rights, ownership
