Subject: Re: [security-services] Liberty IPR Issues

> Take this up in the WSS-TC please and maybe look for outside council to
> resolve the wording

I'm not concerned with the risks I run by implementing WSS. I was 
pointing out -- as others have -- that the grants made and positions 
taken by the WSS authors seem to be no different than the actions on the 
Liberty side.

This TC does seem to be approaching consensus that this and WSS are 
comparable, in the IPR area, and therefore there is no reason for it not 
to be acceptable.  I'm sure you're tired of doing this, but if IBM 
thinks otherwise, then I think more explanation would help the rest of 
us understand your concerns.

One thing that does come to mind is that if IBM is a WSS author, and not 
a Liberty author, then they rights they have in WSS might be greater 
than as just a contributor.  This is a different perspective than many 
of us have, not being an author of either.  (Either author?  either-or? 
:)  Is that a concern?
