As a computing systems professional for over thirty years, I've 
obeserved the impact of the patentability of software and business 
methods on the evolution of technology in the United States, and do not 
believe this peculiar evolution of US law has been to the ultimate 
benefit of our industry.

I therefore urge the W3C to continue to create and endorse only 
standards that can be implemented on a royalty-free basis.
