Time has come to defend the 'netizens' from Tyrannosauruses of the
software market. Many years ago you and other defended UNIX. Now is the
time to defend HTML.
I propose that W3C and WWW.org adopt a charter similar to Linux to
ensure that our future generations will not have to talk about 'good old
days' of the net. Internet is far too precious a tool, to give away
without strings attached to commercial enterprises.
I am confident that the supreme court will back you fully, they are
sensible people who can see what microsoft and others are doing to the
PC revolution.
We owe this to us and our future generations.
Please, please, please, adopt a charter to ensure HTML is always free of
commercial interference.
Many thanks
