The Failed Promise of Digital Content: a recap, part 3

We were promised exhaustive libraries of digital content available anytime and anywhere, but those promises have come up short.
Since May 2009, I have written about the shortcomings of the Internet and digital media when it comes to content – music, video, archived information, etc. I published a recap of the first 20 parts of the series on Nov. 3, 2010, and the next 20 parts on July 5, 2014.
Here is an index of parts 41 to 50 of the series “The Failed Promise of Digital Content.”

Part 41: Online information vanishing for variety of reasons
Part 42: Some TV shows likely will never get released on DVD
Part 43: 14 notable TV shows not available on DVD
Part 44: 16 notable movies never released on DVD in the U.S.
Part 45: Ownership of music, movies and software slipping away
Part 46: Authors can sign paper books, but not e-books
Part 47: Some music still not available for download or streaming
Part 48: Link rot scourge continues
Part 49: Some deleted web content preserved by ‘fair use’
Part 50: Father of the Internet warns of a ‘digital Dark Age’
