Dear sirs,

The W3C is currently trying to decide whether it is acceptable to
incorporate patented technologies in future W3C standards. As a
proponent of free and open standards and as an admirer of the excellent
work the W3C accomplished so far I'm am strictly opposed to this
proposal. Software patents on web standards means destroying the open
nature of the web and the web developers community. Please do not go
forward with this proposal!

Jan Peter Hecking
