Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- HTML: The Markup Language
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/html-markup/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on  1 August 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  1 August
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  2 June 2010 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after  2 June 2010, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document  
prior
to  2 June 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  2 June 2010 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before  2 June 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
available at:
