Subject: RE: [chairs] patent ruling and it's impact on standards organizat ions



I'm just pointing out that while your ideas
hopefully does manage to "cure" outbreaks - 
but as the W3C is finding,
the long term solution is not so immediately 
attained.  Of course there are two camps - 

a) all IPR has to be donated free
b) IPR can have licensing provided this is so stated
     up front.

I just don't want to see us churning goups of email
on all this - I received over 50+ messages on my
W3C thread this week alone!

Maybe we could delegate a sub-team to produce
a report offline?

Cheers, DW.

Everyone knows about the abusive handling of software patents by the PTO,
but I do not see how this can be fixed any time soon... 

Meanwhile I do believe that strengthening the disclosure policy of any
together on a standard is absolutely key, as confirmed once again in the 
JEDEC / Rambus case, and that is a more attainable objective.

It is likely that if the standard organizations do not provide strong
legally-binding disclosure policies (at least as an option), the companies
involved in the standard work will have to complement the IPR policy of the
by additional, separate legal collaboration agreements.
