Dear Sir,

I completed desapproved the way you do with your W3 Consortium 
"Royalty-Free" Patent Policy.
This is not good, this is against freedom. Doing like you try to do will 
be the end of Internet, which is the land of freedom everywhere in the 
world.
Do you really want to kill the freedom you bougth to everyone until now ?
Do you really want to try to be the Microsoft of Internet rather than an 
organisation working on open standards ?
If your recommandations cannot be used by free software, it cannot be 
used by poor people, by the entire world, so it is not a good 
recommandation.
Not free, not good.
It seems you have forgotten your primary motivation : provided a free, 
open, and "interoperable, portable" (in french in the text) network to 
the world, to the humanity and not for a minority of big enterprise who 
wants to rules the net.

You follow a very bad way. Its time to wake up. You will never be like 
Microsoft, you're not Microsoft, and nobody wants you to be it.
More, if you try to "rule" Internet rather than provided good and free 
recommandation, the only thing you will get will be to lost the net and 
that people will look somewhere else to provide nice recommandation and 
create their own www consortium.

I invite you to read this article :

Thanks for your reply,

With kind regards,
