Effective today, EFF is resigning from the W3C
TLDR: Large corporate members of the W3C are being given preferential treatment by the Director of the W3C versus researchers, governments, archivists, and security experts. What should have been a general consensus by compromise on the topic of DRM, has all been overruled by the Director in favor of large corporations.
Imagine if Flash technology was made a permanent fixture in modern browsers instead of being fazed out, and the security nightmare fallout for future generations.
The DRM being proposed by large corporations makes it a criminally punishable offense to audit it for security flaws, which is basically a loss for everyone.
