re: Why does ISO/IEC charge for their standards? VIEW POST


I'm not at all familiar with hoo ISO/IEC operates but it seems like cultural norms and strategic outlook change pretty frequently in this sense.

I would have thought that would want to spread the information as much as possible

These days, the music industry has pretty much realized that this is a pretty great idea and musicians are making more than ever with tours and other monetization opportunities. The record labels may have gotten a bigger cut had they taken this stance sooner.

Microsoft has also completely changed their minds. I'd think that an organization that has been around 30 years may operate in a way that is reflective of a different outlook on the market/world.
