Welcome to the Paleofuture blog, where we explore past visions of the future. From flying cars and jetpacks to utopias and dystopias.

Digital Rights Management (April, 2007)

Much like jet packs, flying cars and moon colonies, digital rights management was to be the movement of the future. Back in April of 2007, organizations like the MPAA and RIAA held hilariously paleo-futuristic views on how to prevent piracy. These organizations were convinced that they could have total control over how creative works were used. From the distanced perspective of May, 2007 we can laugh at it now, but I'm sure there are still people insisting it can be done.
