Dear Sirs or Madams:

I request that W3C approve the draft patent policy, because it's a
compromise that protects the right of Open Source / Free Software
programmers to implement W3C standards, and I realize that compromise is
a requirement in a world of people with differing agendas.

I object to software patents, and support efforts to eliminate them at
the legislative level, which will hopefully make this a moot point some
