Cyberspace: Bruce Schneier's Three Natural Laws of the Digital World

Though this post isn't novel - Schneier wrote about these ideas quite some time ago - this is an attempt to summarize and concatenate them into a small format, as has been done with such works as Newton's Laws of Motion.

Bruce Schneier's Three Natural Laws of the Digital World:
I. Bits are inherently copyable, easily and repeatedly; digital files cannot be made uncopyable, any more than water can be made not wet.

II. Software has the ability to encapsulate skill.

III. The digital world lacks political boundaries.
