Answer:

Defective By Design protestors standing in Hazmat suits outside the WinHEC conf in Seattle, USA. They were protesting draconic DRM (redundant, I know).

    Th guy in yellow suit is holding a Defective by design logo in his hand. So I am guess this is the theater protest against Apple’s iPad which many people thought would impose extra restrictions as it used DRM.

    DefectiveByDesign.org proclaimed October 3, 2006 to be a “Day Against DRM”, and organized several events outside key Apple stores in the US and the UK. Hazmat suits were worn by protesters and leaflets were handed out to the public explaining Apple’s use of DRM in their iTunes music store and on their iPod media players.

    It’s obviously the anti-DRM group “Defective By Design at one of their protests. Which one I can’t say. Not the BBC one. So maybe the iPhone or Vista ones? Seems too old for the iPad one.
