Subject: Re: [legalcitem] Motion to request a Special Majority Vote on requesting affiliation with the LegalXML Member Section

Dear Chet, 

could you please clarify the issue about IPR in this context? I see in 


that there are several options for IPR including
* RF on Limited Terms
* RF on RAND terms
* Non-Assertion

I see that there are several evident and other subtle differences. I remember that it was proposed for LegalDocML to switch from RF on Limited terms to Non-Assertion, and I wonder what this entails and if this would be appopriate for this group as well. 

Can you clarify a bit, please?
