> 2. Is Royalty-free by dint of a signed participation
Can I watch the standard be developed, but not participate. Then pick
up the finished standard, start to implement, realize that I own a US
patent that is crucial to implementation, and sue everyone else? My
knowledge of ISO is limited; is there a way for them to prevent it?
OASIS, W3C, et al, prevent it by lowering the barrier for admission --
so that more parties can be involved, increasing the chance that someone
with patents will participate, and requiring all participants to sign up
for the same IPR regime.
What does ISO do?
