ABSTRACT
This article focuses on the Association for Competitive Technology's Intellectual Property & Technology Summit. Melanie Wyne, director of public policy at the Computing Technology Industry Association, in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois, said that having worked for a software startup, she knows the value of patents. Despite the seemingly united front presented by many industry leaders, the idea of IP patents is anathema to many others. Larry Rosen, former general counsel for the San Francisco-based Open Source Initiative pointed to the open-source community's relationship with industry standards bodies such as the World Wide Web Consortium and the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards and the petition several open-source leaders sent to OASIS objecting to the organization's latest IP policy. Rosen noted that IBM, a leading OASIS contributor, recently stated it was going to make its OASIS-related patents royalty-free.
