I have only just heard about the proposed "W3C Patent Policy Framework".

It would have the effect of turning the Web, which was created as, and thrives 
as, a public commons, into a private "enclosure".
While this would obviously make money for some large corporations, it would 
catastrophically reduce the overall value and usefuleness of the Web.


Please, please, don't do it!


Most Sincerely,
Neil Rest
