Just sent this email because of the
w3c allowing patents in their standards:
From: "Christopher Baker"
Subject: Royalty-Bound Patents
I am very disturbed to learn about your groups intentions
of having "standards" that include patents. The fact that
this has been placed on a fast track only enforces my worst
I fully support the comments of Alan Cox:
This action will in effect turn your organization, which up
till today I had the greatest respect, into nothing more
than rubber stamp shills for large corporate interests.
