Interesting. Bottom line of the industry: Only money makes you really "free". I hope the EU persists.

The article is a little unclear... HTTP and DHCP are open standards already.

I assume the real dispute is that the corporations want their non-standard protocols to compete, for instance Outlook to Exchange uses a special undocumented protocol.
