Back when I swa the first submissions of SVG to the W3C, I noticed a little disclaimer that said that Adobe (and maybe others involved) retained the right to charge license fees for the use of the format (based on their technology in it) at some undetermined future time. This worried me, with the example of Unisys' sandbagging the Web with the GIF-related patents by waiting until GIF was in widespread use before asserting their "rights" to rather draconian license fees. Have the original contributors since assigned any such rights in SVG to the public domain, or is there a time-bomb here? -- Jeremy H. Griffith, at Omni Systems Inc.
