[filmscanners] RE: JPEG2000 > Paul

Most open standards documents cost money, but only to cover the costs of
administering the standardization process. I bought the C++ standard when it
came out--it was $85. A standard that needs to be licensed generally costs
waaaay more than that, because the patent holder is trying to make money off
it. Good examples of expensive ones are the CD recording standards, and the
I2C serial interface (both of which I believe come from Philips).

One thing that may be slowing up its acceptance is that it may be much
harder to write the software to do it than the old JPEG.
