Web DRM was approved by W3C. There is a two week appeal period.

As a side note, a mod seems to keep removing posts about digital rights restrictions and I'm not sure why. I assume that the person must be unaware of how DRM impacts them and other GNU/Linux users.

Edit: After reviewing the thread linked below it seems the mod 'Kruug' doesn't believe this is relevant to Linux and that the implementation of DRM is a good thing.

Bryan Lunduke's take (he mad)

EFF's reponse

One of the removed threads

The verge

Summary of the DRM (stolen from the above thread):

  • The Digital Restriction Management (DRM) is called Encrypted Media Extensions (EME).
  • Its meant for Audio/Video, but can be extended to anything.
  • Google, Microsoft, and Netflix were the big players pushing this
  • Browsers still need to implement the new standard, this means Mozilla could potentially take a positive stance in favor of the users.
  • Not sure how quickly places will adopt this. Lunduke things it will be right away.
  • There is a 2 week appeal period. Doubtful that anything will come of that.
  • Closed Source Software was a mistake
  • Breaking DRM is a crime in the US, no exception is made for this DRM.
  • DRM could potentially restrict based on OS, location, or a host of other arbitrary things.

From the Verge article:

There are also accessibility and competitive concerns. There are no exemptions here that would allow computers to scan videos and automate work like generating subtitles and translations or identifying strobing lights to produce warnings for people with epilepsy. EME doesn't standardize decryption either, and Doctorow writes that companies developing browsers may have to license decryption components, making it harder for new browsers to enter the market.
