    Default Microsoft, Intel, and Google team up to handcuff HTML 5 media with "DRM"

    http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...e-1442781.html

    Mozilla seems to be the only strong "NO" here.

    Wintel and Googlesoft: "Oh look, new technologies and more chances to restrict users and force our software on them!".

    Hell NO! sure for MIcrosoft and Intel its nothing new but google chrome users should really switch to mozilla FIREFOX!

    This Nazi-Google stuff is really shit!

    LOL:

    "Some on the mailing list asked how the proposal could be implemented in an open source browser and retain its robustness. Netflix's Mark Watson admitted that it would require content protection hardware "baked into their firmware/hardware" which would have an API exposed to the browser. He then added that, to protect the decoded frames, "then obviously these frames cannot participate in open source software compositing in main memory". It would be unlikely that this is possible in a system where the operating system, graphics drivers and other components were open source."

    What a NAZI shit... this really sucks!

    DRM is by far the biggest threat to open source operating systems. Right now we're seeing a rush to wall in the existing operating systems, and before long media won't play unless you're running 'Secure Boot' to ensure that Microsoft's drivers haven't been compromised.
