Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Ontology for Media Resource 1.0
   (http://www.w3.org/TR/mediaont-10),
   exclusion opportunity ending on 15 November 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 15 November
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 16 September 2009 establishes
the reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion  
opportunity.
Just after 16 September 2009, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document  
prior
to 16 September 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 16 September 2009 and be excused from all
licensing commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 16 September 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:
