Subject: Call for IPR declarations and licensing assurances
The OASIS IPR policy [section 3.2 (A)] states that: “Where any patents, patent applications, or other proprietary rights are known, or claimed, with respect to any specification developed within the OASIS process, and are formally brought to the attention of the OASIS Board of Directors, the OASIS Board of Directors shall not advance the specification without including in the document a note indicating the existence of such rights, or claimed rights.”
To satisfy this requirement, our specification documents include the required notices and refer readers to the SSTC IPR page.
The SSTC chairs request that all OASIS SSTC member companies that have IP claims of rights relevant to the SAML 2.0 specifications to please notify us and the OASIS Executive Director (Patrick Gannon - email@example.com) of such claims of rights and any assurances of licenses to be made available for those claims. Notices submitted to OASIS will be posted to the OASIS SSTC IPR page.
