Section 9. The reconsideration ballot

Section 9. The Reconsideration Ballot Following SMI ™s response, the National Bodies held a œreconsideration ballot  to reconsider their previous votes. A Following SMI ™s response, the National Bodies held a œreconsideration ballot  to reconsider their previous votes. A letter, again from Microsoft, that responds to SMI ™s general comments, and specifically to the comments that SMI made to the US National Body, follows. Microsoft ™s response was supposed to be limited to a critique of the SMI reprise to the US position, but it seems to capture some of the conflicting feelings that many National Bodies had towards SMI. However, the external environment had changed substantially by this time (October). SMI had sued Microsoft for violation of its Java™ licensing agreement, and Microsoft ™s irritation shows. The tone of the response only serves to make SMI ™s position appear more acceptable. The response here has moved away from issues of standardization to focus almost completely on the economic concerns of market domination and market openness, even though the standards process is supposed to rise above such considerations.
