mmilinkov commented on JSR358-26:
---------------------------------

My concern is that deleting this section may actually cause more harm than 
good. As I read the JSPA, if Section 6 is deleted, then there is no 
obligation for any patent license grant. My preference would be to replace 
"FRAND" with "royalty free", which would certainly go a long way to helping 
enable open source implementations.

> 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
