For Teams that work on one joint product, there is only one product owner. If the product becomes complex, the Product owner responsibility can be spilt over multiple persons. 



The Product Owner is responsible for the commercial success of the product of a unit. He formulates and prioritizes the tactical goals of the unit (the features) and supports the team defining operational requirements (Stories). When all teams work on a joint product, there is only one product owner. The Product Owner is one person, not a committee. He has the power to make final decisions about the product, its features and the sequence of implementation.
