Re: EME is in the scope of the HTML WG

Hi Andreas,

If I am not mistaken, the EFF formal objection has not yet been addressed, or at the very least, the results regarding decisions related to that formal objection have not been made public. Unless I missed something, which is quite possible these days. If not, I would be very much interested in knowing where we are in terms of process relating to that formal objection and when we can expect to have an answer.

Best regards,


Catherine Roy
