Subject: [Fwd: [chairs] IBM gives 500 patents rights to open source projects]

Does anyone know if the "obligations" patents included in IBM's IPR
disclosure for XACML are included in this set of 500?

This is indeed an excellent development - and also a 
smart one.  Clearly IBM deems these patents as 
defensive ones anyway - and so making them public
provides a low cost way to ensure the PTO snags
related work for them - instead of IBM IPR teams
having to constantly review that.

This also vindicates the open source approach once
more - and adds further weight for the need for 
OASIS policies to fully enable unfettered open source 
use of OASIS specifications.

Thanks, DW
