How so? DRM is nothing more than added security for "property", much like a lock is added protection for your doors.. There are laws in place to prevent the "theft" of both DRM protected content, and your possessions.

Which is exactly why DRM is completely useless, there are already laws for copyright infringement and it has been proven time and time that it doesn't significantly deter piracy or secure profits.

I can't believe we're having a discussion on whether DRM is good or not on a mailing list for OpenNIC. You guys should know pretty well why it's a retarded idea to have a rights restriction scheme in what is supposed to be an open standard.

Huh, what? If I have a copyright infringing video up, it can be brought
down under applicable copyright laws, HTML5 or not.
