EFF resigning from w3c over w3c endorsement for DRM and lack of protection for security researchers

"Today, the W3C bequeaths an legally unauditable attack-surface to browsers used by billions of people. They give media companies the power to sue or intimidate away those who might re-purpose video for people with disabilities. They side against the archivists who are scrambling to preserve the public record of our era."

Because they have defined HTML since its inception. It's a decades-old standards body that's had no real controversies until now. It was peaceful, benevolent, and helpful.

And now it's DRM'ing all the things.

@lufthans @vincentxavier Quelqu'un a-t-il déjà lancé l'idée : #LetsForkW3c ? Ça pourrait servir de support au dev du prochain internet, permettant d'établir des liaison avec ou sans FAI, assurant l'anonymat des connexions et du transit des paquets, etc.
