Re: DFSG Freeness of Patent Reciprocity Clauses

What are others opinions on this?
My opinion is that patent termination clauses must only affect patent
grant clauses of the same covered work. Terminating all patent grants
for any action, or terminating copyright grants for patent action are
extra restrictions. Also, I find it useful to consider the effect on a
saner place that has no patents for software. If licensees there are
affected by the patent clauses, something is probably wrong.
MJR/slef My Opinion Only and possibly not of any group I know.
