The email that you link to, from the BBC, calls for a solution that has legal sanctions
to protect it - that is people will lose their liberty and be persecuted over this matter.

Sorry, my sympathies lie with the users and they have my support.  Your path is
your choice, you live with it.

The issue at hand has wider implications than most.  The discussion

ask the Chairs to be tolerant in this special case.

The W3C are responsible for their own actions.  I really don't care
what they decide because if they support DRM then they no longer
matter as the good work will move elsewhere.

You ask the chairs to be tolerant, but then condescend by claiming that if the W3C "support[s] DRM", then the W3C "no longer matter[s]".
It is statements like this that show how out of touch some individuals are with respect to both W3C process and industry needs [1]. How can you expect a rational discussion in this context?

We are extending them the courtesy of helping them understand the issues.
So, your contribution to this thread is merely to help educate the W3C? Rather patronizing aren't you.
