Wrapped up in Crypto Bottles

John Perry Barlow talks about his three fears about copyright and DRM: 1. Erecting a system which highly advantages a very few corporate channels for human intellectual exchange. 2. That Digital Rights Management today is Political Rights Management tomorrow. 3. That by wrapping a large amount of human knowledge up into bottles that can no longer be opened except at a price, much of it will be wrapped up in crypto bottles that in a very fairly short time cannot be opened even at a price. A huge amount of human creativity will simply be lost for future generations.
