    Well in browsers it is for some reason absent. Chrome and Chromium even have the logic, but they only enable it when build for Android or ChromeOS, so the normal Linux builds doesn't get it.

      But if they were books or physical disks (that are also copies of a master, but in a physical form) there would not be much to talk about.

      In US it is, in EU it is, in most other civilized places on the planet it is
      US maybe, EU no, nope nope nope. It is not a crime in any civilized country.

        I'm running Firefox Nightly with Widevine installed.

        Try spoofing your user agent to windows running firefox. If that works, kindly report back.

        For me, spoofing a reasonably new version of Chrome for Linux allows for watching Netflix using Firefox 49 beta4. You'll need to confirm that Widevine is installed and activated. (It wasn't installed/activated by default for me.)
