The Darknet and the Future of Content Distribution. This is an excellent, controversial paper that describes why digital rights management (DRM) technology is an extremely difficult problem. It is required recommend reading for anyone interested in the technical and social challenges of digital content distribution. If you like this paper, I also recommend Cory Doctorow's talk to Microsoft Research on digital rights management, and why it is a bad idea. He has an interesting position, and his arguments are persuasive.
