Hi

	i just really want to know why there is a need to use patented
	standards?
	havent we all learn anything about the RSA patent?! just one
	patent locked out almost all crypt and signature technologies and
	software for too much time

	is just too dangerous to give that much power and control to
	one company or group, it can be used to lock out any attempt to
	improve or build a alternative technologies that goes against
	the patent holder interests...

	i just say no to patents, even more to patents in standards

	thanks

Naturally the common people don't want war... but after all it is the
leaders of a country who determine the policy, and it is always a 
simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, or
a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship.
Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of
the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are 
being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and
exposing the country to danger.  It works the same in every country.
