[ Thanks to Danny Weitzner for this informtion. ]

From www.w3.org on 26 February 2002: Responding to comments from the public, W3C Members, the W3C Advisory Committee, and the Open Source/Free Software community, the Patent Policy Working Group has released a draft Royalty-Free Patent Policy for discussion and comment. Its goal is to produce W3C Recommendations that can be implemented on a Royalty-Free (RF) basis. Comments are welcome. Read more in the press release and backgrounder.

I hope that LinuxToday readers will have a look at the drafts and send comments.
