Hello!

As an open-source-developer I follow discussions about software-patents
With great interest.
I cannot agree with your draft for the royalty-free patent policy because
It would violate the GNU general public license, thus making it impossible
For opensource-developer to implement W3 standards.
I urge you to prohibit the imposition of the "field of use"-restrictions on
patent
Claims.

Thanks a lot,

Pascal Mainini
