pcurran commented on JSR358-26:
-------------------------------

I should have read Mike Milinkovich's comment more closely when I pasted it! 
He said:

"I would like to suggest a royalty-free patent licensing model as a potential 
solution to this. Both the Apache and Eclipse open source licenses have a 
very similar model that lays out the requirements that any patents which read 
on contributions must be licensed royalty-free. This model has seemingly 
worked very well for those communities, and I would be interested in 
exploring any shortcomings the model may have in the JCP context."

This is exactly what we have today *for contributions.* The question is about 
patent rights with respect to stuff that you do not contribute (but without 
which the JSR cannot be implemented.)

> Section 6 of the JSPA (Special Patent Considerations) requires that all JCP 
> members, even those who do not participate in the development of a JSR, 
> grant essential patent rights to all licensees of that JSR.
> This provision may be a barrier to corporate participation.
> Could it even be enforced against individuals or their employers?
> Should we keep it, or can we drop it?
> Note: our current processes with regard to individuals (Exhibit B) mean 
> that these broad grants are *not* made by individuals or their employers 
> (Exhibit B refers to a specific JSR only.)
