Resistance is not futile.

I would like to stand and be counted among those
who would argue for the continued default acceptance
of RF (Royalty Free) for licensing.

The net is in it's infancy and has a long way to grow.
Now is not the time to begin engraving lines in stone
with the intention of having them stand the test of time
when in reality we still have no idea where it's going
to go.

Progress is most rapid when the momentum of it's mass
is not impeded by having to change directions due to
a closed off path.

Please think long and with great care before making
any decision which would restrict freedom of access
to the wonders of the internet in even the most frivolous
of situations.

	The uniform building code does not apply license fees
for specific procedures... don't allow the magnificence of the
net as it now stands and the limitless of it's potential be
shadowed by even the hint of such restrictions.

     Thank you for your time and I leave it to you to make the right
