To Whom It May Concern,

Please record and consider my opposition to the proposed new patent
licensing policy, as shown at http://www.w3.org/TR/patent-policy/.   I
believe this so called "RAND" policy will inhibit innovation as it pertains
to the internet, and will also be detrimental to the future of Open Source
Software.

I encourage to W3C to NOT adopt this policy, and to continue ensuring that
W3C recommendations and standards remain completely royalty free.


Thank You,

Those who are willing to sacrifice essential liberties for a little order,
will lose both and deserve neither. - Benjamin Franklin

This country, with its institutions, belongs to the people who inhabit it.
Whenever they shall grow weary of the existing government, they can
exercise their constitutional right of amending it, or exercise their
revolutionary right to overthrow it.  - Abraham Lincoln

No citizen shall be denied the right to bear arms, if as a last resort, to
protect themselves from tyranny in Government. - Thomas Jefferson
