In pursuit of market control now, deployers of DRM are robbing us of our culture in perpetuity by enclosing the future commons.
@webmink what surprised me was that all the editors were from big name companies.
I was reading about the DMCA laws and it appears that there is no time length (unlike the copyright) on how long before a piece of DRM'ed content can be safety bypassed, this if implemented would be a huge step backwards, not to mention going against W3C mission statements...
I can only hope W3C members do the right thing. This has gone on for too long.
@miwilc To be fair, so have citizens - see this comment on my article for example: https://meshedinsights.com/2017/07/09/drm-is-toxic-to-culture/#comment-6380
The comment mentioned, is a expected one from any content producer, from any sensible company.
These people must be made to see that DRM causes more problems than it solves.
There are increasing studies, (to my knowledge) that DRM-free content will sell better, and priacy was reduced by a considerable percentage.
