TITLE: Securing TV and Movies on the Web, or, will there be a DRM interface in HTML5?
ABSTRACT: The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) last year published a public draft specification for Encrypted Media Extensions (EME).It has garnered a lot of controversy as many people see it as breaking with the principle that the web should be open. Those in favor of the specification believe that the alternative is that the Web will contain a series of locked apps.
We will give an overview of the technology, the status and discuss possible ways forward.
