Summary:
Reaffirms EIF v1.0's narrow definition of "open standards". Under this definition, among other things to qualify as "open" any IP in the standard must be made irrevocably available on a royalty free basis and there must be no constraints on re-use of the standard. The draft EIF v2.0 expressly provides that to qualify as open a standard must be capable of being implemented by both proprietary software and OSS solutions, but assumes that OSS solutions are incompatible with IP rights in standards.
