Subject: Digital Signature Services (DSS) TC IPR Transition Ballot

To: Those OASIS member voting representatives and individual members who are voting "TC Qualified Members" for the
Digital Signature Services (DSS) TC
   As you probably know, OASIS adopted revisions to our IPR Policy effective on 15 April 2005.[1] TCs formed before that
date continue to operate under the old ("legacy") policy. However, they may convert to the new policy by making a
"transition" under the terms of the OASIS IPR Transition Policy [2], by the specific voting procedure described in the
transition policy.
   The OASIS Digital Signature Services (DSS) TC has notified OASIS staff that it successfully conducted a Transition
Request vote under the IPR Transition Policy, to select the "RAND" IPR Mode. Accordingly, I am opening a Transition
Approval Ballot, in which the primary representatives of all voting members of the committee may cast a ballot. A list
of the current TC voting members, as of the date of the Transition Request, is attached. In this ballot, which will run
for 14 days, the TC Qualified Members [3] each may cast only a single vote. The ballot will allow for YES, NO, or
ABSTAIN votes. Approval of a Transition Approval Ballot requires:
   (i) a minimum of 50% of all TC Qualified Members to vote,
   (ii) no NO votes cast, and
   (iii) one or more YES votes.
   The ballot has opened and can be seen at [4]. Please note, for organizational members, it is the primary OASIS
representative who votes, so if you are not a TC member, you may wish to consult your organization's active TC members
regarding this vote.
   We will notify the Digital Signature Services (DSS) TC list and the voting "TC Qualified Members" of the results.
