Subject: Re: [chairs] Of un-patents and un-inventions

David,  Thanks for the links and info.  I'll try to get up to speed.  I am 
hoping the OASIS board is paying attention to this discussion.  I've also 
filed and fought patent issues and hope we can find a way to corral the 
madness in the good work of OASIS.  "Open invention" is a good name which 
is similar to "open source" that is palatable.    "FRI" would be fun but 
I'm afraid the acronym would hide the good intentions of the real meaning 
"freely reusable idea."  Regards, Elysa
