+ - Microsoft, Netflix, Google Propose Inclusion of DRM in HTML5->

Submitted by ParityNews
ParityNews writes: Microsoft, Netflix and Google have put forward a proposal in the HTML Working Group seeking standardization of DRM in HTML5. DRM is not a good idea at all and doesn’t help solve the problem of piracy on the web and this is what Manu Sporny, a member of the HTML WG and founder of a startup that built a DRM enabled peer-to-peer, legal content sharing network believes. According to Sporny “TL;DR: The Encrypted Media Extensions” (DRM in HTML5) is not the solution to the problem of “opportunistic or professional piracy.”
