HitWRight48244dI mean no one should be surprised. DRM was bound to happen sooner or later. It's just a stepping stone to web maturity.
metamourge805244dFirefox contains a free implementation of EME.
What else is new ? All major browsers already have DRM “protection”.
Try to watch a LEGAL blue-ray on a windows machine. (Or even worse, linux).
I ended up stopping buying and just torrenting. Same quality and I can use whatever the fuck I want to watch it.
Fast-Nop2243744dThe W3C has degraded to a rubber stamping secretary of the browser consortium WHATWG anyway. And the main reason is that the W3C is a bunch of idiots completely detached from reality.
The browser manufacturers rebelled because the W3C tried to enforce useless shit that neither browser vendors nor web authors wanted (XHTML) and in turn declined HTML5. That's how the W3C lost its power.
It's also why it didn't matter whether W3C accepted EME - that would have come anyway with a W3C that nobody listened to anymore.
And, as we say in German, the fish always starts stinking from the head. TBL himself has jumped the shark long since. Everything he tried after inventing HTML was failed crap.
Then again, making a browser without DRM is fully possible. Think again whether DRM protected content is really worth watching in the first place, given that Hollywood is churning out ever worse junk.
