Subject: RE: [chairs] need IP statements on OASIS TC web pages


This is just a reminder to put any IP claims on your web pages. If you
have any questions about this policy please contact me. (I'll try not to
bug you about this again, but I just wanted to follow up from my first
request to make sure that it got taken care of.)

> The OASIS IPR Policy states that at the time contributions are made to
> OASIS the contributor must disclose any IP encumbrances (patents,
> trademarks, etc.) associated with that contribution, and promise (at
> least) RAND licensing for any encumbrances. Furthermore, at

> encumbrances must be identified to members so that they can make a
> decision, having full knowledge, regarding approval of the spec.
> In order to achieve full disclosure so that TC members and other OASIS

> query your TC members to find out what other encumbrances

> I cannot stress enough how important this is. If IP encrumbrances are

> Please make this a priority over the coming weeks.

> CIQ TC: contributions from MasterSoft, AND
> DSML TC: contributions of DSML v1 from Access360, iPlanet,
