Subject: [wsia-comment] Security News

Hi Everyone,

Since I have been getting hammered and catching flack for advising 
against reliance on MPEG-4, and because we are going to get an update 
on IP disclosures tomorrow, my personal radar horizon for these 
issues is lower than normal. So, I caught this fairly obscure article 
this morning in my daily news review.


Since it deals with RAND (Reasonable and Non-Discriminatory Royalty 
Provision) issues, which lie at the heart of the MPEG-4 disputes, 
which recently developed into a nasty little war between RAND and RF 
(Royalty-Free) factions, I pass it along mostly without comment.

However, when WS-I announced itself, I got the strong impression that 
its charter was to provide interoperability TESTING standards, not 
candidate specifications. Since we are OASIS-based, yet number 
amongst us member companies involved with WS-I at the topmost 
organizational rung, if we could ask for an update on that for our 
next meeting, June 9, that would be helpful. One day to investigate 
this is not reasonable, so I won't bring it up tomorrow, if I am able 
to attend, which is dependent on schedules other than my own.
