Sure. That's why we should talk to the DMP (which is not Leonardo
Chiariglione alone, as I already mentioned).

Although I don't like DRM as is being proposed by the industry (and,
to a lesser extent, by the Digital Media Project) I'm fairly convinced
that DRM proposals will go on, our ideas notwithstanding. I think
it's important that the industry (and the DMP, which is in a certain
sense representative of the industry, although a number of its
positions are much more sensible) knows that the "users" (and the
citizens) have a fairly broad concept of what constitutes a "fair use"
or "traditional" right.
Remaining silent in this occasion has the only effect that the DMP
(and the industry representatives which are a part of the DMP) will
have the opportunity to say "ok, nobody told us that this and this and
this right was important to you, so we implemented that and that and
that usage restriction".
Sure, they can ignore our positions no matter how loud we speak. But
for me it's important that nobody will be able to say, tomorrow, "we
offered you to discuss these issues and you didn't".
BTW, this has nothing to do with being the "poster boy" for
Chiariglione or the DMP (which I'm not a mamber of, although I follow
its mailing list).
