Software legal circles I've heard a note of caution on OMA's licensing
terms. While they use the word "open" a lot it appears that in fact it is
not open but rather there are patent rights reserved. This is incompatible
with many Free Software licenses and in fact may be incompatible with
emerging intellectual property praxis as it currently is understood in the
United States; software is increasingly being seen as something that is not

It would be good for the W3C automotive business group to state, at this
early stage, if FRAND and similar licensing like the type used by OMA is
preferred or not with regard to W3C promoted standards -- this may have an
impact on who is willing to contribute or not.
