Subject: Re: [emergency] Successful Emergency Management IPR Transition Ballot

Renato and others, 

The EM-TC has discussed the IPR transition of the TC in several calls over the last 6 months.  Jamie has also been present to explain the different modes.  We decided on the mode during a call when Mary McRae of OASIS was on the call to answer any specific questions.  I know there are several minutes that have not yet been published and will look into that. 

We covered it again today just be sure everyone understood and it will be documented in the minutes of todays meeting.  During our discussions over the months, all TC members expressed an interest in keeping the work of the TC as open and free as possible.  The choice the TC agreed to is RF on RAND as described on the OASIS site at http://www.oasis-open.org/who/intellectualproperty.php. This mode requires anyone submitting information to the TC that may have IP claims to be fully disclosed as such to the group.  The group can then chose to include it or not.  The consensus of the TC membership now is that we would not accept any IP to be included in our work products. 

I hope this helps and apologize for the meeting notes not being published on this matter.  Thanks for your continued participation.

I noticed in the Sep 19th EM-TC Teleconference minutes (released today) it said:

"Art said that he hadnít seen any discussion of how the TC arrived at its selected IPR policy. He asked that Elysa send a note to the list expanding on the implications of the selected policy, including the notes for the meeting at which it was approved."

To:  TC Qualified Members of the Emergency Management TC
cc:  Other TC members

    The OASIS Emergency Management TC has conducted a Transition Approval Ballot under the rules provided by the OASIS IPR Transition Policy [1]. The ballot results are visible to OASIS members at [2]. The ballot to apply the current (2005) OASIS IPR Policy to the TC's operations, and adopt the "RF on RAND" IPR mode, was APPROVED. As a result, the TC will start operating under that policy and mode on 17 October 2006, which is 14 days from the date of this notice. That date will be the TC's Transition Effective Date under the IPR Transition Policy. This message is your Approval Notification under that policy.

    Please note:

   1.  The obligations of OASIS members who serve as TC members under the 2005 OASIS IPR Policy [3] are different, in some ways, from those under the prior policy. Please review the 2005 policy so that you are clear about the licensing and disclosure obligations associated with the TC after the TC Transition Effective Date.

    2.  OASIS staff will announce the TC Transition Effective Date and the TC's new IPR Mode to members in the same manner as a charter amendment.
