> As a result of the discussion on the mailing list of the W3C Restricted
> Media Community Group I provide a simple test of formal legal compatibility

> Can EME be implemented using the GPLv3 or AGPLv3 license ?

> Due to the intended purpose of EME using these licenses also results in

First can you please provide a pointer the exact discussion in the Restricted
Media CG email discussion where this was discussed?

Second can you please explain why a W3C specification has to meet this kind of
test?  I can find nothing in the W3C Process document or the W3C Patent Policy
or any other W3C policy document that says this is true.

Third could you please describe a specific change that could be made to the
current EME spec that would satisfy your test?
