 The Currents in an RFID Pool
Officially, the consortium's mission is to speed up adoption of RFID, used to track goods in manufacturing or in the supply chain, by making licensing of RFID-related intellectual property less of a hassle (see BW Online, 8/9/05, "RFID's Second Wave").
When the consortium becomes operational, probably in early 2006, its member companies might be able to bargain not only with their own patents but also with other members' patents.
More important, the consortium is a volunteer organization, so its members don't have to place all of their RFID patents into the pool.
