ISSUE-198: Ensure innerHTML and related APIs are subject to the W3C patent policy

innerHTML-patent-policy

Ensure innerHTML and related APIs are subject to the W3C patent policy

State:
CLOSED
Product:
HTML 5 spec
Raised by:
Sam Ruby
Opened on:
2012-01-16
Description:
Raised on behalf of Tony Ross based on https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=11204 :

Given innerHTML, outerHTML, etc. were previously defined in HTML5 before being
relocated to an external specification, we should ensure the W3C patent policy
continues to apply to the definition of these APIs. We should also consider how
we want to handle similar changes in the future.

For these particular APIs I propose resolving the issue by finishing the
process to get the DOM Parsing and Serialization spec up and running within the
W3C. I appreciate the work Ms2ger has put in to create this specification and
I'd prefer not to regress that effort.
