W3C Brazenly Ignores All Critics and Approves Browser DRM Standard
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has announced this past week its intention to promote the Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) draft as an official standard in the upcoming future.
The decision was signed by W3C head honchos, including Tim Berners-Lee, the World Wide Web's creator. Berners-Lee putting his name on the EME standard is ironic, as many Internet experts have warned that EME has the potential to kill openness on the Internet, the very thing that made it successful in the first place.
If you're not familiar with EME, this is a standard for supporting encrypted multimedia content over the Internet. While in theory, this has some broad applications at the technical level, all the organizations that have joined the W3C and pushed to adopt this standard are copyright holders, interested in using EME as a way to implement all-around DRM platforms inside browsers, mostly to protect their video streaming rights.

Net Neutrality Won't Save Us if DRM is Baked Into the Web | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Yesterday's record-smashing Net Neutrality day of action showed that the Internet's users care about an open playing field and don't want a handful of companies to decide what we can and can't do online.
Today, we should also think about other ways in which small numbers of companies, including net neutrality's biggest foes, are trying to gain the same kinds of control, with the same grave consequences for the open web. Exhibit A is baking digital rights management (DRM) into the web's standards.

Global Web standard for integrating DRM into browsers hits a snag | Ars Technica
EFF: Protections needed to “engage in lawful activity that DRM gets in the way of.”
Days ago, Ars reported on a controversial decision by the industry trade group that oversees the global development of Web standards. The decision by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to back a standard for implementing digital rights management (DRM) for Web-based content is now under appeal, the Electronic Frontier Foundation announced Wednesday.
Cory Doctorow, the W3C Advisory Committee representative for the EFF, said the digital rights group's appeal is twofold:
1. That the supposed benefits of standardizing DRM at the W3C can't be realized unless there [are] protections for people who engage in lawful activity that DRM gets in the way of; and
2. That the W3C's membership were never polled on whether they wished to institute such protections as part of the W3C's DRM standardization project.

Over many objections, W3C approves DRM for HTML5 | Ars Technica
Contentious feature is added, without mandate to protect security researchers.
A system for providing DRM protection to Web-based content is now an official recommendation from W3C.
In 2013, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), the industry body that oversees the development of Web standards, took the controversial decision to develop a system for integrating DRM into browsers. The Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) would offer a way for content producers to encrypt and protect audio and video content from within their plugin-free HTML-and-JavaScript applications.
EME is not itself a DRM system. Rather, it is a specification that allows JavaScript applications to interact with DRM modules to handle things like encryption keys and decrypting the protected data. Microsoft, Google, and Adobe all have DRM modules that comply with the spec.

Amid Unprecedented Controversy, W3C Greenlights DRM for the Web | Electronic Frontier Foundation
Early today, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards body publicly announced its intention to publish Encrypted Media Extensions (EME)—a DRM standard for web video—with no safeguards whatsoever for accessibility, security research or competition, despite an unprecedented internal controversy among its staff and members over this issue.
EME is a standardized way for web video platforms to control users' browsers, so that we can only watch the videos under rules they set. This kind of technology, commonly called Digital Rights Management (DRM), is backed up by laws like the United States DMCA Section 1201 (most other countries also have laws like this).

Linux-Kernel Archive: Re: Dual-Licensing Linux Kernel with GPL V2 and GPL V3
"The kernel license covers the *kernel*. It does not cover boot loaders and hardware, and as far as I'm concerned, people who make their own hardware can design them any which way they want. Whether that means "booting only a specific kernel" or "sharks with lasers", I don't care."
