I am opposed to W3C's RAND proprosal. I simply cannot
imagine charging royalties to use an Internet standard.

I just looked at my previous statement:
	"charging for an Internet standard"
It seems to be an oxy-moron in and of itself. It goes
against a lot of what the Interent stands for, not
to mention how it operates.

In short, don't charge royalties.
It is fundamentally wrong.

Respectfully,

Greer Pedoe
