Title and description of this group may mislead.

What is 'restricted media'?:

What is 'restricting access to Web media'?

There is no dispute that sever owners have a right to limit access
to served content and there are non-DRM, unencumbered, open
web technologies, already available to meet these needs.  These
should not be in scope for this group.  I suggest that the term
'restricting access' communicates these use cases making the
description of this group misleading, and thus the use of the term
'restricted media' for the title confused separate issues and is
also misleading.

What is 'restricting use of Web media'.

I suggest that the only disputed technology is 'strong DRM' and that
the title and purpose of this group should reflect this.

Further, I would note that the proposed EME API does not
technically limit the scope to media, and the CDM could well
implement a complete HTML rendering engine, thus the
restriction to 'media' is also misleading.
