Permitting patented technologies as Web standards is a terrible idea. It
would "shrink" the world wide web. All Web standards should have free patent
licenses. To allow commercial patents to become web standards would most
likely drive a lot of small firms, such as mine, out of business.

Thanks you for extending your comment period.
