People freak out.
Just a few days ago, everyone was a huge fan of the HTML5. Now, it looks like at least a small amount of fans are freaking out over the industry’s DRM like protection proposal.
However, what they fail to realize is the fact that this is a necessary step, which would somewhat protect content providers, who actually spend money to produce such thing.
In case of no DRM like protection, there is literally no reason for big guys like Netflix to switch to HTML5, which would allow users to easily download pretty much everything at no additional cost.
What about “there will always be piracy” argument? Yes, people could still rip it with a cam recorder or employ other techniques. However, there is a difference between locking your doors and having your doors open, while at the same time advertising your brand new plasma screen and $5000 PC.
