The analysis on that page is based on a different patent license than
the OSP for OOXML.
If it isn't about OOXML and isn't about the OSP, it seems doubly
In regard to what he says this about the OSP:
â??I see Microsoftâ??s introduction of the OSP as a good step by
Microsoft to further enable collaboration between software
vendors and the open source community. This OSP enables the open
source community to implement these standard specifications
without having to pay any royalties to Microsoft or sign a
license agreement. I'm pleased that this OSP is compatible with
free and open source licenses.â??
Has he explained why hee does not agree with the stated criticisms of
the OSP? From those reasons, we could see whether he has refuted
those criticisms or ignored them.
