Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Use Cases and Requirements for Ontology and API for Media Object 1.0
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/media-annot-reqs),
  exclusion opportunity ending on 18 June 2009 23:59 UTC


This specification was produced by the Media Annotations 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 18 June  
2009
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/42786/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 19 April 2009 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after 19 April 2009, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document  
prior
to 19 April 2009, 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 19 April 2009 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 19 April 2009, please use the
following form:
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/42786/join

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