The W3C is planning to vote to approve DRM as a web standard on Thursday 13 April. Email Tim Berners-Lee and the W3C in the UK to ask them to drop their plans. Traditionally the web has been open. Anyone can publish content. Anyone can use a browser to access that content and see how it works. But the W3C is planning to approve a web standard that would put technical controls on the media that we access online. The technical controls are called Digital Rights Management or DRM for short.
