Subject: Successful oBIX TC IPR Transition Ballot
To: TC Qualified Members of the OASIS Open Building Information Exchange (oBIX) TC
cc: Other TC members
The OASIS Open Document Format for Office Applications (OpenDocument) TC has conducted a Transition Approval Ballot under the rules provided by the OASIS IPR Transition Policy . The ballot results are visible to OASIS members at . The ballot to apply the current (2005) OASIS IPR Policy to the TC's operations, and adopt the "RF on Limited Terms" IPR mode, was APPROVED. As a result, the TC will start operating under that policy and mode on 26 July 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.
1. Any members of the TC who have not signed the current Membership Agreement by that date will be deemed withdrawn from TC membership on the TC Transition Effective Date. If you have not yet signed the agreement, and have questions or would like assistance, please contact my colleague Scott McGrath, our Director of Member Services, who is copied on this message.
2. The obligations of OASIS members who serve as TC members under the 2005 OASIS IPR Policy  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.
3. 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.
