Subject: RE: [ebxml-msg] FW: [ebxml-cppa] IBM patent disclosure

Yes, we will have to have a conference call to discuss/vote on any errata items.
My preference would be to wait until after this has come to resolution at the
OASIS level.  I received a note from Bob Sutor saying that paperwork was still
being negotiated.  Why don't we wait until we see what that paperwork says?

On David Burdett's concerns, I agree that we would all like to have some simple
answers.  I would also like to know if IBM can deny a license and what
limitations that might impose (extend David's question 2).  I can't see how IBM
can claim full discloser without answering some simple questions.

Again, let's wait and see what the paperwork says before we go any further.

David Fischer.

Yes, the late arrival of the IPR is the root cause of the problem for the ebXML

But its significatly easier to remove costs before they occur and its easier to
reduce risk of doing
business before the risk becomes a factor. The macro economic cost of making a
short delay most
certainly outweights the costs of due to risk of doing business related to the
global community of
SME vendors and their customers.

I believe that David Fischer may have come up with a solution that uses errata
to remove any trace
of CPPA requirements without delaying the spec.
