w3c accepting patented technology as standards

The Internet has always been great because it has always been free.  Using 
patented technology as a "standard" would remove the sole feature that made 
the internet important and transform it into a dull tool used by businesses 
to increase their market shares.

There are two possible roads for the w3c to take -- the path towards a more 
connected world, or the path toward the flagrant overcommercialism plaguing 
the modern world.  I beg of you to make the right decision.
