The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has filed a formal objection to the inclusion of DRM in HTML5
, saying that a draft proposal from the W3C could hurt innovation and block access to people around the world. From their press page: '"This proposal
stands apart from all other aspects of HTML standardization: it defines a new 'black box' for the entertainment industry, fenced off from control by the browser and end-user," said EFF International Director Danny O'Brien. "While this plan might soothe Hollywood content providers who are scared of technological evolution, it could also create serious impediments to interoperability and access for all."'
