> Adobe and the content industry can audit our sandbox (as it is open source) to assure themselves that we respect the restrictions they are imposing on us and users, which includes the handling of unique identifiers, limiting the output to streaming and preventing users from saving the content. Mozilla will distribute the sandbox alongside Firefox, and we are working on deterministic builds that will allow developers to use a sandbox compiled on their own machine with the CDM as an alternative.
So this seems to imply that actually Adobe can prevent users of the CDM to replace the 'open source' component by another that save the content.
This is a strange use of open source, indeed, when modification are not allowed.
I hope the Mozilla developers will be smart enough to include some DRM-security hole masqueraded as fat-finger. (No reason to give the NSA the monopole of this useful technic).
