The Electronic Frontier Foundation has decided it will leave the World Wide Web Consortium saying that the decision making process has been corrupted by corporate elements set on implementing DRM.
The World Wide Web Consortium has approved Encrypted Media Extensions, a new internet DRM standard which has many people concerned, though all major browsers have been supporting it for years.
A group called Ethics in Tech held a legal march in Cambridge, MA on Saturday with their final destination being Tim Berners-Lee's office. They were aiming to stop EME (DRM) becoming a web standard.
Tim Berners-Lee has passed a decision to the W3C Advisory Committee on whether to extend the EME development through to March 31, 2017. The committee is divided on EME and could stop development.
