There is no requirement in the IETF process for organizations to
disclose patents as far as I can see. The current approach of only
having people participate, and disclose patents, in the IETF is easy
to work around by having two persons in an organization doing
different things: one works on specifying and standardizing
technology, and the other is working on patenting the technology.
How can you practically avoid the first person knowing about it?
