"The Draft EIF v2 proposed to redefine "open standards" in a way that devalues intellectual property in standards and discourages intellectual property creators from introducing their innovative technology. The EIF v2 have adopted a new definition of "open standards, it should be a definition with European Commission standardisation policy and consistent with ISO. a. Standards policies respect the balance of interests of intellectual property creators and users to encourage investment in and dissemination of innovative technology. b. RAND-based standards are available to all users, including vendors relying on the open source software business model. The EIF v2 revaluating "open standards" assumes that interoperability cannot be based on RAND-based standards."
