[liberationtech] UK cab office detected open standards mole

The UK cabinet office prolongs its open standards consultation and accuses
the advisor of its round table of a commercial conflict of interest. There
would be another round table. The previous round table was accused of bias,
and participants strongly argued in favour of FRAND licensing of digital
standards.

Quote:
"This could be seen as a clear conflict of interest and should have been
declared by the relevant parties at that meeting. For this reason any
outcomes from the original roundtable discussion will be discounted in the
consultation responses and we will rerun that session and give time for
people to prepare for it. We will also run a teleconference as well as a
meeting to ensure that everybody has a chance to participate."

Best,
André
