Sirs and Madams,
As an internet  content developer I am dismayed at the recent proposals 
coming from the W3C.  I doubt I need remind this esteemed body of the 
history of the internet and the subsequent World Wide Web.  It is of the 
utmost importance that the tradition of openness and interoperation between 
software which has defined the Network be preserved!

Although the efforts of the W3C have many and of great value and importance 
to the  Internet, I am afraid you have stumbled on this patent issue and I 
regret having to say this:  SHAME ON YOU!

In summary, I request two things of the W3C:
1.  Reject the Patent Policy Framework Working Draft as a document and as a 

2.  Extend the public comment period until the end of October, 2001

Thank you for accepting my opinion on this very important matter.
