The two patent tools being published for public comment are:

  • a Research Non-Assertion Pledge, to be used by patent owners who wish to promote basic research by committing not to enforce patents against users engaged in basic non-profit research; and
  • a Model Patent License, to be used by patent owners who wish to make a public offer to license their patents on standard terms.

AFAICT, neither document relates to OWF's model agreements or goals. Neither of these CC drafts are compatible with open source licenses.

It's still worth taking a look at, and considering other efforts in this direction to help validate or prove out this perspective.
