Subject: RE: [xri] Minutes of 9 January 2003 XRI TC

My understanding is the same as Jamie's, i.e., that the TC charter could not change OASIS IPR policy, but could impose additional restrictions. Therefore I second Jamie's (informal) motion that the charter reflect a requirement for RF terms on any submissions.

    Hi Mike, thanks for doing the minutes. 
    I was the one who raised the question of whether RF policy, which appears in some prior XRI docs and seems to be the intent of most  initiators, also should be added to the charter. 
    The draft minutes note Karl Best's observation that many TCs rely wholly on the OASIS IPR polices, which permit RAND, but omit the next point discussed, i.e., that several that  have successfully adopted stricter rules.   Incorporation of RAND-limited tech may be appropriate in some standards -- that's a hot issue in our industry right now, and one I do not propose to solve here.  But I am fairly sure that, in our case, the KM resource discovery scheme XRI contemplates must be wholly free of IPR  restrictions to be successfully deployed. 
    As we deferred charter approval, I will move to amend a RF requirement into the charter when it comes back to the agenda. 
    Regards    Jamie
