"Each person will be able to decide whether to activate the DRM
implementation or to leave it off and not watch DRM-controlled content."

"We plan on deploying it in the Firefox desktop browser for Windows,
Mac and Linux operating systems."

ie. no FreeBSD support.

There's a slim chance it'll work under FreeBSD's Linux emulation, I suppose.

I imagine the DRM system will be broken (cracked) fairly quickly.
