It's been an interesting morning. I've gathered the following resources on the ethos of sharing in the early days of UNIX, although no published papers to that effect.
- Bezroukov, Nikolai "Chapter 3: Prince Kropotkin of Software (Richard Stallman and his anarchistic GNU project)" in Portraits of Open Source Pioneers especially Part 2: Programmer
- Sharing UNIX with the rest of the world
- Sol, Selena From the Beginning: (a very useful history of Unix encapsulating the importance of sequential innovation)
