Scenes From Anti-DRM Protest Outside W3C

A crowd upset about the possibility of DRM in Web standards gathered to protest outside the World Wide Web Consortium's Advisory Committee meeting in Cambridge, MA last night. EFF is participating in these W3C meetings as a member, encouraging the group to adopt a non-aggression covenant to protect security researchers, standards implementors and others from the effects of including DRM-related technology in open standards.

Last night's protests, shown below, were organized by the Free Software Foundation and included comments from EFF's International Director Danny O'Brien.
