Subject: RE: [wss] Web Services Security IPR Disclosure

I'm assuming that currently only Microsoft is requiring licensing
based on the attached IPR disclosure and that the other two WS-Security 
submitting companies (Verisign and IBM) do not have any plans for 
additional licensing currently.

Subject: [wss] Web Services Security IPR Disclosure

As called for, this note is to advise OASIS that Microsoft believes it has
pending patent application(s) that include claims that are necessary to
implement the Web Services Security contribution submitted on June 26, 2002,
to the WS-Security Technical Committee ("Contribution").  Microsoft will
update this statement if and when such pending patent application(s) issue.

Microsoft is willing to provide licenses to interested parties to any
Necessary Claims (as defined in the WS-Security license at
<http://msdn.microsoft.com/webservices/docs/wss_license.asp> ) as follows:
If an OASIS Standard incorporating this Contribution is adopted by OASIS
pursuant to the WS-Security Technical Committee Charter at the time the
Contribution was submitted, Microsoft will grant, for the limited purposes
of implementing and complying with the required portions of the resulting
OASIS Standard, a ROYALTY-FREE, worldwide, non-sublicenseable,
non-transferable, license to any such Necessary Claims to implement the
Contribution under reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions,
provided a reciprocal patent license is granted to Microsoft and other
implementers of the OASIS Standard.
I am not a lawyer so direct any questions regarding this communication to:
