|Re: [microprofile-wg] [External] : Consensus thread on Implementation patent license vs Compatible patent license|
+1 for Compatible Patent License (Oracle)
We believe this provides the strongest branding and end-user assurance that when an implementation is claimed to support a specified technology, the claim is backed up by verifiable, community developed compatibility tests. Current branding programs are (to date) limited to the high-level implementations, only. The Compatible Patent License applies this assurance to all implementations that claim compatibility as well as the top-level implementations regardless if they choose to apply for additional branding rights, or not.

The MicroProfile Steering Committee needs to select its patent license. The ballot language requires verbiage that Steering Committee can vote on (+1,-1,0), and the two patent license verbiage options are outlined below. Here is a recent post by Mike Milinkovich on the patent license topic, and David wrote up an example. Neither claim to be lawyers :-) The intellectual property policy is here (pdf).
While anyone can select their preferred patent license ballot option, only steering committee member selection will be counted towards the selected ballot language. Once consensus is reached, the Steering Committee will conduct a ballot on the preferred option.
Please select the desired patent license:
Implementation Patent LicenseRESOLVED, the MicroProfile Steering Committee approves the use of theImplementation Patent License as defined in the Eclipse Foundation IntellectualProperty Policy for all specifications under the purview of this Working Group.
Compatible Patent LicenseRESOLVED, the MicroProfile Steering Committee approves the use of theCompatible Patent License as defined in the Eclipse Foundation IntellectualProperty Policy for all specifications under the purview of this Working Group.
