Subject: 	RE: [CEFACT-LWG:261] ebXML legal issues
Date: 	Wed, 9 Jul 2003 23:37:52 +0100

Dear Ms Martin,

I am concentrating on ebXML because that is the major concern of UN/CEFACT
but, yes, the principles apply to all XML "standards" and also to all IT
electronic business standards which could come into conflict with roadblock
business process patents.  I put the word "standard" in inverted commas
because there are in fact no true XML standards as yet.
