Locking in your sources

I just saw an interesting post in the New York Times’ Green Inc. blog about how an Indian state controlled firm (with a consortium of other investors) is trying to acquire coal mines in appalachia. It’s a powerful example of how the software delivered from Bangalore may be powered by coal from West Virginia. It brings up the interesting question of how can individuals lock in the sources of their stuff without the purchasing power of a corporation.
