So Mozilla contributes to making the French market ready for DRM
on HTML5 for new players like Netflix and for CanalPlay.

If Netflix is now in France, it is very recent. As for CanalPlay,
it seems to me that their market share for videos on the web (or
vdeos on the internet entirely) is quite insignificant against
YouTube and ISP's TV offers. The analysis that Mozilla has no
choice and has to follow the market not to lose users is a very
narrow minded view of the situation.
