at the Microsoft presentation at the summit of newthinking I took a note
to check the conditions under which the OData standard (the OASIS open
data standard proposal, heavily industry influence) is licensed. Turns
out it is the "Microsoft open specification promise" found here:

Was there already an analysis of how these terms align with our
understanding of what an open standard is? And if not, is this something
where we should communicate actively?

All the best,
