Subject: Fwd: New OASIS IPR Policy Review

I am still having a fit getting email from the OASIS list (getting them  
hours, days, and sometime a week after they are sent). Anyway, I just  
got the "reminder" email Karl today regarding the new OASIS IPR Policy  
Review, which appears to have come on time, so I wanted to notify you  
all. At the same time Rex sent me a reminder that included the email he  
sent to the MSG SC  
msg00000.html), so I have just included his email here.

If you have any comments, just let me know and I will pass on to the  
appropriate people - Allen
