Thanks Richard

While I was not active with the SPI in 2009, that decision is in line
with what I would expect from the OSI "as a customer" of the open
source licenses. The MPEG patent pool perhaps was a very easy example
to discuss as their actively practiced business model is precisely
what we want to avoid with open source. Nevertheless, we should then
not create an opportunity for them to use CC0 to meet their goals
