Mozilla to implement DRM in Firefox later in 2014
« on: May 15, 2014, 05:16:25 PM »

Sad news that Mozilla has caved into DRM, apparently it will be a blackbox binary added to Firefox which users are unlikely to be able to circumvent.

See this EFF article

Hmmmm.  Although I understand the problem with piracy and such, the DRM can also stop legitimate uses too. :(
