In 2016, Teaforia raised $12,000,000 in venture capital to manufacture a $1,000 tea infuser that combined proprietary, DRM-encumbered tea pods with a “patent-pending microinfusion technology” and a timer to make cups of tea. A year later, the company is dead, and the infusers are $200 — but remember to stock up on those tea-pods! Even after the company is long gone, breaking its DRM is a felony punishable by a 5-year prison sentence and a $500,000 fine for a first offense, thanks to section 1201 of the DMCA.
