Just read this story:

I find this very disturbing. The open internet society needs patent free web 
standards in order to continue the development of free software that complies 
with your standards.

This change of policy is in deep conflict with the philosophy of the
internet, which has been to allow free communication and exchange of
opinions and ideas.

Please reconsider.

Greetings
