Consumers have rejected DRM everytime, yet it continues to be shoved down our throats. I’m sure this is just the start for HTML5. I’m sure it will include ways to data mine your system and spy on you.
DRM being part of the “standard” just opens the door for Hollywood to sue you if you don’t employ the “industry standard” in order to help protect their information on your site / product / app etc.
This is just like when the banks got the law changed so that website owners who got hacked could be charged $50 per account to compensate banks for having to re-issue cards on those accounts. Why shouldn’t they be forced to create a system that can’t be stolen online?
