[RSP] If the companies in Liberty that posted notice of claims to Liberty are also members of SSTC and they believe those claims apply to SAML 2.0, it is their responsibility to make an appropriate declaration to the OASIS Executive Director.  The chairs made a request to all list members to make such declarations known.  See:




If and when such declarations are made, they will be posted to the SSTC IPR page.


As Conor pointed out in:




only AOL and Fidelity had issued patents that applied to ID-FF.  It is up to those companies to decide whether those claims apply to SAML 2.0 and to provide notice to the OASIS Executive Director regarding those claims and any necessary licensing terms.  The chairs of the TC have been and will continue to work with the OASIS Executive Director to facilitate the process of obtaining those notices.
