Internet & Networking "Bruce Lawson started a very interesting discussion about the Encrypted Media Extensions to HTML a few months ago, with learned and interesting commentary from John Foliot and others. After devoting some thought to this, I believe that the amount of argument around this subject is at least partially caused by its separation of the web from the spirit of the web."

John Foliot: It is my opinion that continuing to state that this is DRM in HTML5 is perpetuating a falsehood, and is not too far off from calling the authors of this specification liars. I really wish y’all would stop (please) – take this draft spec at face value (and instead of taking others opinions, try reading it!)

John Foliot (one of the active supporters for this proposal on the W3C list) sounds very disingenuous when claiming that EME proposal is not about DRM. It's is exactly about DRM.
