Our company has decided to avoid microformats.org like the plague for 
now as we feel something fishy is going on. The 
licensing/patenting/copyright/ownership issues are as blatant as the 
attempts to brush discussions about them under the carpet. This thread 
on the list would be an ideal place for such issues to be discussed and 
cleared up, but as usual - silence. One has no choice but to assume the 
worst. We also note that the requirement for all submissions to be fully 
researched is a common requirement for patent application.
