How can a description of how to use a technology infringe on a patent?
A standard isn't merely a description, as in a magazine article, but
also represents an industry agreement on the definition of a product. A
draft or WG could encourage persons to violate a patent, which is
indirect infringement. A draft or WG could define a product that is a
contributory infringement on a patent. The working group must take care
not to do these things.
