“Smaller players and non-IT firms–those who are not and perhaps cannot be in close business deals with Microsoft–are potentially at a disadvantage in not having either a relevant competing patent portfolio to bring to negotiations, or the legal resources to assess the level of risk,” Vaile said. “This is why a truly global open standard ideally needs to be dealt with in a way that removes obvious sources of uncertainty for smaller participants as well.”
