RE: ISO intellectual property (was Standards)

As Todd pointed out, this appears to be an undecided 
issue.  But again, we are wrangling over words that 
have by dint of community norms, become increasingly 
obscure.   As far as I am concerned, what is legal 
is not necessarily right regardless of the payoff 
but that is certainly only one opinion.  

So get patents like fire extinguishers:  until your 
house is on fire, they are ugly wall ornaments.

If there is no protection, it is not IP = intellectual property.
"No right without a remedy."  Short of patent protection, ideas/concepts
are not IP.
