Dear Advisory Committee representative,

This is a W3C Patent Policy Call for Exclusions for the following
Recommendation Track documents:
- GRDDL Primer
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl-primer/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on  1 March 2007
- GRDDL Use Cases: Scenarios of extracting RDF data from XML documents
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/grddl-scenarios/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on  1 March 2007

These specifications were produced by the GRDDL Working Group.

If you do not wish to exclude patent claims during this exclusion
opportunity, no further action is required.

Participants made a Royalty-Free licensing commitment upon joining this
Working Group. With the publication of this document, per section 4.1 of
the Patent Policy [1] Participants have an opportunity until 1 March
2007 to exclude patent claims reading on this Recommendation track
document. Excluded claims are not subject to the licensing requirements
of the W3C Patent Policy for this document. For more information about
exclusions, please see
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/#sec-Exclusion

To make exclusions, please use the following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/39407/exclude

The Patent Policy anticipates that the documents will evolve during the
90 days following the first publication.  Per section 4.1 of the Patent
Policy [1], whatever draft is available at 31 December 2006 establishes
the reference material for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after 31 December 2006, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the documents
prior to 31 December 2006, Participants may wish to exclude any claims
only after publication of the reference draft (and no later than the end
of exclusion opportunity).

Per section 4.2 of the Patent Policy [2], a Participant may resign from
the Working Group before 31 December 2006 and be excused from all
licensing commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 31 December 2006, please use the
following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/39407/join

Summary information for this group related to the W3C Patent Policy is
available at:
