 I am an active memeber in the Open Source Software community and have been
informed about the patent policy W3C is considering. 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.

I object to software patents, and support efforts to eliminate them at the
legislative level.
