Subject: Re: [emergency] Azos AI, LLC Patent

Title: Re: [emergency] Azos AI, LLC Patent
Thanks Patti,

This is the first time I have heard of this. My question to OASIS would be: How did this get here? I don't recall this company being associated with this OASIS TC, let alone contributing anything that could be claimed to be ipr essential to CAP. I wonder if this is somehow connected to CAP before it was brought under OASIS? A cursory glance at their website indicates that their technology is "wireless" specific and CAP is transport independent.

While reviewing the EDXL-RM document, I found a surprising (to me, anyway) comment on the EM-TC IPR page (http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/emergency/ipr.php):
"Azos AI, LLC. (Azos) holds United States Patent Number 6,359,970 which we believe to be essential to the compliant implementation of the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) Common Alerting Protocol Committee Specification Version 1.1 (the "Specification"). Azos is willing to offer nonexclusive licenses under this issued patent, upon written request from implementers wishing to pursue compliant implementation of the Specification. These licenses will be provided under reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions, in accordance with Azos' then current licensing practices."
Someone seeing this may conclude that a license for Azos AI technology is required for CAP compliance. Do we have any recourse in removing the comment or at least refuting it on the EM-TC IPR page?
