One big, deliberate blind spot in nearly every published work of Science Fiction that mentions the subject at all is Intellectual Property. These otherwise excellent works propose ridiculous scenarios in which economic activity has fundamentally changed, and maybe money itself is no longer used, but somehow copyright is still alive and strong.
An example of this is in Dan Simmon's Hyperion. One of the characters is an author. His struggles with publishing are very topical, and not at all futuristic. He fights with a corporate publisher who is interested in money and sales, not art. The one tiny bit of futuristic struggle is the response of AI to his writings. The intelligent computers buy one copy from the publisher, then freely distribute that copy among themselves, making the poor author next to nothing from royalties. The boss of the publishing business in the story comments "copyright doesn't mean shit when dealing with silicon".
Another example is Star Trek, especially the episode I, Mudd. Here and there in Star Trek, money is mentioned as something that technology has rendered obsolete, and is no longer used. But somehow intellectual property is still in force. In that episode, it comes out that Mudd has violated some patents, and perhaps copyrights as well, and has fled the world where this happened. And the penalty for these violations? Death! Yeah, rights holders wish!
It's pretty obvious that where the subject comes up and the authors have not injected such pro-copyright sentiments into their works, publishers have forced it in anyway, out of obvious self-interest and damn the integrity of the plot. It may well be impossible for the publishing and entertainment industries in their current form to produce a work that honestly explores this likely aspect of the future, a future without Intellectual Property.
RMS has essays on this subject. However, he does not advocate the elimination of copyright, but rather the use of it for copyleft, the turning of copyright on its head, to force more openness.
