In a 4 October article, Dear EFF: please don’t pick the wrong fight, Chris Adams replies to some of the points made by Danny O’Brien for the EFF and Cory Doctorow for Boing Boing. I thought I’d share it here, since both the EFF and Boing Boing were shared.
It is a bit long but it is worth reading.
Two parts I wanted to highlight:
“Misrepresenting the W3C’s Encrypted Media Extensions will not do anything useful but it will hold the web back and make the EFF less effective.”
“What the open web community should be doing now is working to ensure that EME is designed in a way which improves security and reduces the proprietary footprint.”
