  Commission - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In law, a commission is a patent which allows a person to take possession of a state office and carry out official acts and duties.
Although "commissioned officer" is a military term, civilian officers of the government such as judges, justices of the peace, marshals, and cabinet ministers also are commissioned, as well as many others.
The appointment occurs before the granting of the commission itself; however, the commission is necessary for the person to exercise the office.

 Independent International Commission on Kosovo: The Kosovo Report
However, the Commission considers that the intervention was justified because all diplomatic avenues had been exhausted and because the intervention had the effect of liberating the majority population of Kosovo from a long period of oppression under Serbian rule.
The Commission is also critical of the use of cluster bombs, the environmental damage caused by the use of depleted-uranium tipped armor-piercing shells and missiles and by toxic leaks caused by the bombing of industrial and petroleum complexes in several cities, and the attack on Serbian television on April 17, 1999.
The Commission strongly condemns the attempts by the Serbian government to place restrictions on their own media's coverage of the war and its aftermath, especially the detention of Miroslav Filipovic for his interviews with FRY soldiers who took part in operations in Kosovo, and for his publication of their admission of atrocities and war crimes.

The commission was to have nine members and was to be named earlier this week.

 Frits Bolkestein and Software Patents
Internal Market Commissioner of the European Commission since 2000, leader of dutch right-wing liberal party VVD, known mainly by interventions in favor of the world's second largest pharmaceutical company, of whose supervisory board he is a member, and by various policies in favor of big business.
In February 2002, after a year of silence and almost no dialogue within the European Commission, Bolkestein's directorate published a draft directive "on the patentability of computer-implemented inventions", drafted in close collaboration with EPO and BSA, which was grudgingly accepted by other directorates due to pressure from Bolkestein and the UK Patent Office.
In March 2004 Bolkestein intervened in the antitrust procedings of the Commission's competition directorate against Microsoft, pushing for extreme interpretations of TRIPs according to which Microsoft must be allowed to charge fees for patented standards.
