Tonight: Stop DRM in HTML, Cambridge

Today from 6:45pm to 7:30pm we will participate in a rally with the FSF, Defective by Design, and other anti-DRM groups to tell the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to not put DRM in future HTML standards.

The anti-DRM movement has fought media and proprietary software companies who want to add Digital Restrictions Management (DRM) to the HTML standard that defines the Web.  Allowing DRM into HTML will lead to security backdoors as well as encouraging the corporate enclosure of our shared culture.

We will meet in front of the MIT Stata Center, MIT Building 32, at 32 Vassar Street in Cambridge.  The Kendall Sq. MBTA stop on the Red-line is the closest subway stop and there is likely to be street parking.  More info is at the FSF site.

There will be a info and sign making session in the Stata Center at 32-144 at 4:55pm. Make your own sign or download the FSF’s printable sign.
