   RE: [xml-dev] ISO turns evil?

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

That sounds good but is not realistic.  Yes, we can just-in-time 
download codelists and initialize the dropdowns, but that incurs 
overhead and availability problems.  Also, is a cache an illegal 
copy? Relationships built with code listed values also have to 
be tested.  How many copies constitutes 'fair use' or 'fair dealing' 
(these aren't the same)?

The other side of the coin in defense of ISO is how should they go 
about supporting their work?  The problem of the commons is who 
pays the cost of maintaining the commons?  Should the government 
members pay dues as is done by commercial consortia?

We may be staring into the beginning of the process through which 
ISO creates or accepts a new role in the domain of standards 
developement and maintenance support.  Anyone care to comment on 
what they think that role should be and how it would be supported?


From: Rick Marshall [mailto:rjm@zenucom.com]

i think if you read the messages carefully this shouldn't really affect

the message seems to say that if you want include the codes in a
commercial product you have to pay

if you want to advise your customers about where they can download the
codes for use, then noone pays

a nuisance, but it would affect say oracle who wants to value add their
product with the codes, but not me because i'll just show my clients how
to download the codes.
