Draft Revised OASIS Intellectual Property Rights Policy Now Available for
Member Review

The OASIS Board of Directors has drafted a revised OASIS IPR Policy designed
to address changes affecting intellectual property and the work of standards
bodies. The updated document aims to bring OASIS in line with common
industry best practices and remove ambiguities that exist in our current
policy. The revision is also intended to encourage submissions of technical
specifications initiated elsewhere to be brought to OASIS, to support the
creation of new work, and to facilitate the adoption of OASIS Standards on a
global basis and across industries. All OASIS members are asked to review
the draft and provide comments before 10 September.
