[liberationtech] Security researchers sign-on for W3C DRM covenant

Hi Libtech,

Some of you may have been following the ongoing saga of DRM in the W3C.
One of the latest developments is that EFF (and others) are pushing for
the adoption of a "covenant" to protect security researchers from legal
liability when studying or implementing the standards in question.

We'd be very grateful for support for security researchers explaining
why this matters as the W3C is making its final decision. For more
information (including some signatories), and our request that you
contact Cory Doctorow who's leading this effort:

We believe the W3C is very close to a decision, so the sooner you can
get in touch the better.

Thanks!
Parker
