Dear Advisory Committee representative,

This is a W3C Patent Policy Call for Exclusions for the following
Recommendation Track document:

- HTML+RDFa
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/rdfa-in-html/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on 14 March 2010 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the HTML 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 14 March  
2010
23:59 UTC 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/40318/exclude

The Patent Policy anticipates that the document will evolve during the  
90
days following the first publication.  Per section 4.1 of the Patent
Policy [1], whatever draft is available on 13 January 2010 establishes  
the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.  
Just
after 13 January 2010, we will send a reminder and identify the  
reference
draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior to 13
January 2010, Participants may wish to exclude any claims only after
publication of the reference draft (and no later than the end of the
exclusion opportunity).

Per section 4.2 of the Patent Policy [2], a Participant may resign from
the Working Group before 13 January 2010 and be excused from all  
licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 13 January 2010, please use the
following form:
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/40318/join

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