Help Stop DRM from Becoming Part of HTML5

A proposal currently being considered by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) would weave DRM into HTML5 — in other words, into the very fabric of the Web.
No SOPA, No CISPA, and No DRM in HTML5

This year's International Day Against DRM comes at a critical moment in the fight against DRM. A proposal currently being considered by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) would weave DRM into HTML5 — in other words, into the very fabric of the Web.

Millions of Internet users came together to defeat SOPA/PIPA, but now Big Media moguls are going through non-governmental channels to try to sneak digital restrictions into every interaction we have online. Giants like Netflix, Google, Microsoft, and the BBC are all rallying behind this disastrous proposal, which flies in the face of the W3C's mission to "lead the World Wide Web to its full potential."

The Free Software Foundation will observe International Day Against DRM by delivering tens of thousands of signatures to W3C, asking it to put Internet user freedom above corporate interests.


Sign the petition before Friday May 3rd to have your signature delivered to W3C.
