Copyright enforcers should learn lessons from the war on spam

Cory Doctorow's latest article for The Guardian documents why many of the technological fixes being attempted to reduce copyright infringement won't work, and have harmful unintended consequences.

Not mentioned is the elephant in the room of "Digital Rights Management" which locks down people's devices in an attempt to stop copyright infringement, and as an "unintended" consequence makes it harder/impossible for independent creators to create and distribute their works without the "permission" of a competing intermediary.
