It seems that the internet as we knew it is about to pass away, giving way to a much more controlled environment where websites can code what can and what can’t be done with so-called ‘content’, which becomes something akin to a controlled substance.

 

David Bollier, in his recent article

The Piecemeal Privatization of Web Infrastructure

 

relates how the governing entity for the web, the World Wide Web Consortium or W3C, is working on standards that will incorporate Digital Rights Management (DRM) right into the guts of the internet’s language. HTML-5, the next version of the language that displays websites and other things on the net, will be armed … with DRM.
