to the Commission
Rule 117
Amelia Andersdotter (Verts/ALE)

 Subject:  Standardisation of particular use cases in HTML5
 Answer in writing 

In the patent pool and web standard organisation W3 a discussion is currently under way as to whether to include digital rights management technologies, and technological protection measures for broadcasting rights, in the HTML5 standard, in order to codify, at the infrastructural level of the browser, the ability of video streaming providers to control or stop the retransmission of streamed broadcasts.

From an anti-trust perspective, how does the Commission view the discussion on standardising a particular use case in the basic standard for webpages?
