Bruce Perens reports on Advogato: "I have accepted a position on
the W3C Patent Policy Board. Eben Moglen of FSF was also offered
one, and I think he's accepted." [And that's all he has to say
on the matter at the moment. -ed. ]
Thanks also to Leo, who sent this link to a statement from Danny
Weitzner, Chair of the W3C Patent Policy Working Group:
"First, thank you for taking the time to express your
concern about this issue. We have received many substantive and
constructive comments. These comments will, I am certain, make
significant contributions to the final policy that W3C adopts.
Second, here's some information about how the process of
developing this policy will proceed in light of your input and how
you can continue to be involved. We are modifying the Patent Policy
WG process to improve communication between the open source and
independent developer community and W3C:
+Open Source experts invited to join the Working Group: Eben
Moglen (General Counsel, Free Software Foundation)  and Bruce
Perens (Co-Founder of the Open Source Initiative)  are joining
the Patent Policy Working Group as 'invited experts.' They will
participate equally with the W3C Members in the group and will
share completely in the decision-making and consensus-building
process. I welcome both their expertise, as well their ability to
promote dialogue with the Web and Open Source communities."
