Clay Shirky on Slashdot Clay has one interesting observation in this interview on Slashdot wheren he said: the Digital Millennium Copyright Act is an attempt to graft analog economics onto digital data by decree. This will fail [in the long term]. In the short term (next two years) anything might happen.

Digital rights management and authentication is going to be a big issue over the next few years, and it is not clear how other digital services, like Hailstorm, will pan out for the end user.
