Though it is very sublime the technological innovations should not be expected to require other societies to adapt or innovate too. Often cutting edge technologies can be wiped out or destroyed with very low brow technologies when drawing on intellectual capital. For example DVD or CD copy protection can be made useless by drawing a circle on the outer edge of the media (CD) with a sharpie pen. Bombers can be kept off targets with the use of upper atmosphere balloons and cables. Fighters can be denied air superiority with the use of passive sensing high performance missile systems.
