Every W3C standard until 2017 formalised some technological means of giving users control over their computers, from the power to display a certain kind of image format to the power to render complicated web-pages in browsers. This week, the W3C published a first-of-its-kind recommendation titled Encrypted Media Extensions (EME) that does just the opposite. It enables media companies from Netflix to the BBC to remotely control your computer while you are enjoying copyrighted works, preventing you from (for example) saving a programme for later, without regard to whether you have the legal right to do so.

Good on them. Quite agree.

On the other hand
The part of me that likes to fingerprint visiting devices is jumping up and down in glee.

Agree and what's their weight in the consortium? Will it change anything?
