I'm sure we all agree that Free operating systems are too important to be left in the hands of cis white males. They must be brought onto the 'right side of history', and ToleranUX is the first step!"

How do you know they are 40 year olds with wives and kids?
Oh wow... sorry... had a slashback to like... 1999.
No... I'm right.
You need to look at what this scheme actually is... not what they say it is.
It's standardising breakage... as I've already said, let the content companies and their flunkies do their own work. It shouldn't be part of HTML 5 and it is fundamentally at odds with open source browsers.
You've put the layer into the browser... and insisted that the browser be closed source.
And that's not pushing the infrastructure onto us?
Not thought this through have you?
You can put what you want on the web.
But why do you expect everyone else to pay the technical cost of it (the DRM infrastructure, lock in and lack of choice and innovation)?
If you want DRM... then you maintain your own infrastructure and the associated costs.
Hookers and blow... obviously
1. The UJ site works like Monster.com. In fact it's run by monster.com. Cookies are not an issue.
2. The part of UJ that is controversial is the tick box when you create a profile that says "Allow the DWP to access this account". Your Jobcentre plus personal adviser can then access the UJ account and look at any CVs you've uploaded... what jobs you've applied for via the site and any free text notes you've recorded, and any feedback from employers you've had. Ticking the box is voluntary and it can be unticked later. Whether you tick the box or not - you are required AS SOMEONE GETTING JSA to show what you have done to look for work when you sign on every two weeks. Whether you do it via UJ or via a written form called an "ES40JP" is up to you. Nothing has changed in that regard.
This isn't about piracy.
It's about all the legally made TVs/videos having to obey bullshit rules - unskippable bits, not allow you to record a show, only keeping it for X amount of time.
It won't do a damned thing to stop copying. If you make TVs you'll need to sign a legal agreement in order to "decrypt the content" however trivial that encruption is. It'll just allow content companies to ensure that THEY control the people who make TVs - and will sue any of them who don't hop into line. They make the rules - and the BBC is a content company
