Tim Berners-Lee approved Web DRM yesterday, but W3C member organizations have two weeks to appeal. This was the controversial Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) standard for the WWW known as Encrypted Media Extensions (EME). The last opportunity to stop EME is an appeal by the Advisory Committee of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). An appeal would then trigger a vote from the whole Committee to make a final decision to ratify or reject EME. As an added difficulty Tim Berners-Lee heads the Advisory Committee.
Also at Techdirt and EFF. W3C's "Disposition of Comments for Encrypted Media Extensions and Director's decision".
Argh that is an annoying form of comment response.
If you are referring to blockquoting and adding a reply and repeating for subsequent points, I totally disagree with you.
The only problem I have with the style of JNCF is the text blob in his first comment in this (sub)thread.That deserved about 4 paragraph breaks.
...and one more nitpick:I don't approve of anyone giving Internet Exploder a free pass.In their software, MICROS~1 didn't/doesn't follow already-establish standards--even when they were a part of the committee that formalized those standards.
Adding new stuff is one thing; breaking stuff is quite another.

Yeah, that's totally fair.
That line is fuzzier than it first appears, but I understand what you're saying and I mostly agree.
