Brian Behlendorf: Let me double-down on this. I think it's important not just to not ignore them (and by "them" I mean not just regulators, but policy makers and the general public who elects them), I think it's imp...
Rasty Turek: I don't think that the current use of DRM is well understood. Studios are not pressing streaming companies on using DRM to protect their content from being ripped-off. The day a content is availabl...
Mark Watson: It's worth noting that the Encrypted Media Extensions specification and its implementations have evolved significantly during the several years we have been working on them in W3C. DRMs under EME a...

Fernando Gutierrez: The analysis of the blockchain is both an attack on privacy and on fungibility, which is a basic property of money. By analyzing the blockchain, companies like Elliptic or Coinalytics are marking f...
