Digital rights management (DRM), technology and law, threaten the entire system of discourse on which progress is built. It is based on a reductionist model, in which creativity and innovation are isolated actions supplied according to the economic returns promised to those who are successful. Yet science, innovation, and creativity are dynamic systems chat require open discourse and readily available information to flourish. The core flaw in DRM laws and technology is the model of author as sole creator, rather than as a part of a system. The article enumerates the dramatic threats to the system of creation and innovation that the author believes exist in DRM law and technology.
