Hello friends,

Ruben Rodriguez, a prominent free software developer, today asked the
World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) not to add Digital Restrictions
Management (DRM) to Web standards. His protest took the form of a formal
objection against a draft Web standard called Encrypted Media Extensions
(EME), which is currently in development by the W3C's HTML Media
Extensions Working Group. You can read Ruben's full comment here:

The FSF strongly supports Ruben's objection, and we ask that you do too.
The best way to support Ruben's objection is to join the Working Group's
public mailing list at
https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html-media/ and then send a
message to referencing the comment. We recommend that you explain why
keeping DRM out of Web standards is important to you personally. It's ok
to simply say that you are supportive and that you care about
maintaining free Web standards, but a more in-depth argument will also
be very powerful if you have the time to write one.

For more information about Encrypted Media Extensions:

    * Read the draft standard: https://www.w3.org/TR/encrypted-media/
    * See the FSF's work against EME through our Defective by Design
campaign: https://www.google.com/#q=w3c+site%3Adefectivebydesign.org

Thanks for supporting Ruben's statement!

Note: Ruben is currently employed by the Free Software Foundation as our
Senior Systems Administrator, but he submitted this objection as an
individual rather than an FSF representative.
