No.

So many people before me have said it more eloquently than I, but it 
all means the same thing: No.

Where would the world be today if the metric system was patented?

Remember the "World Wide" in the World Wide Web. This means anyone in 
the world, not just those who can afford a license.

Standards meant to be used by the whole world should not be patented.

No.
