Abstract: Based on chosen aspects of the idea of software subscription as well as the Microsoft Corporation's .NET project, the author attempts to show that monopolistic actions on the software market cause conditions for an assumption of total control over the global ICT infrastructure, which may in the future threaten society with hypernomadization. This may in turn radically change relations between individuals and, e.g., the institution of state itself. This text is a continuation of the task initiated by the paper The Discontinuity of Cultural Process in the Digital Civilization - Main Dangers. [Kocikowski, 2001]. This assignment focuses on a systematic display of the dark sides of the information revolution, particularly in regard to all that is connected with the lack of social control over the actions of corporate giants in the information branch.
