Property Rights Day, Part 5

Here's yet ANOTHER article about the impasse in digital property rights. This one focuses on DRM, and how it's never really worked, and isn't working now.

Look, it doesn't take a genius to see that the economics of DRM are essentially those of copy protection - because DRM is just massively distributed copy protection.

Copy protection hasn't worked for nearly 25 years - why would DRM work now?

What we need is innovation about property rights. If I say that once more today I think my browser might explode.
