Subject: [controlled-trade] Intellectual Property

As you probably noticed we had a bit of controversy last week over IP
related to OASIS TC work. In that context I'm sure that you'll agree
that we need better identification of the IP related to the technical
work that our TCs are pursuing.

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 the time the specification
is completed and advanced to OASIS members these 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
members may work with full knowledge, it is very important that all IP
encumbrances associated with the technical work of your TC be identified.
If you have contributions that may pose a problem, please contact me at your
earliest opportunity so that we can post any encumbrances. If anyone sends
me IP encumbrances, I'll post them on our web site for everyone to see.

The following are contributions of which I am aware; I suspect that there
are more.
