I concur with many other people, who agree that Patenting the Standards
defined by the W3C is wrong.  This will only serve to destroy the open
development of standards and software that can be used.  The likes of
Microsoft have already got a sizable chunk of the WWW-using population in
it's pocket through the use of Windows, Internet Explorer and other
"Internet" Software.

The World Wide Web is a medium that should be enjoyed by all, without the
requirement to pay for the use of it. If the Patent Policy is passed, then
the goal of "information for all" becomes null and void.

Quite simply, all I can say is "NO TO THE PATENT POLICY/RAND!!"
