An open letter to the W3C Director, CEO, team and membership | Electronic Frontier Foundation
[Lettre ouverte de Cory Doctorow, annonçant le retrait de l'EFF du W3C, en désaccord avec la publication du standard EME ]
Yet, somewhere along the way, the business values of those outside the web got important enough, and the values of technologists who built it got disposable enough, that even the wise elders who make our standards voted for something they know to be a fool's errand.

We believe they will regret that choice. Today, the W3C bequeaths an legally unauditable attack-surface to browsers used by billions of people. They give media companies the power to sue or intimidate away those who might re-purpose video for people with disabilities. They side against the archivists who are scrambling to preserve the public record of our era. The W3C process has been abused by companies that made their fortunes by upsetting the established order, and now, thanks to EME, they’ll be able to ensure no one ever subjects them to the same innovative pressures.

W3C Publishes Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) as a W3C Recommendation
The decision to advance EME to W3C Recommendation was made by W3C Director Sir Tim Berners-Lee, following a six-year multistakeholder effort and extensive technical work and open discussions within the Web community.

"If you’re going to watch encrypted content it is safer in the browser where the security and privacy are provided rather than downloaded as an app." said Tim Berners-Lee. "A universal web must have content of all sorts: audio, video, text, interactive, maps and graphics. Some parts of the web are free and some are for pay. It’s understandable that certain producers incurring huge costs to produce their content are not prepared to release them without protections. If we are to have de-encryption, the advantage of EME is that unlike the typical historical DRM, the user is protected from attacks."
