Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Web NFC API
   (http://www.w3.org/TR/nfc/),
   exclusion opportunity ending on 13 June 2014 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the Near Field Communications Working  
Group.

If you do not wish to exclude patent claims during this exclusion  
opportunity, no further action is required. Member participants who think  
their organization may have patent claims to exclude should contact their  
Advisory Committee Representative.

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 13 June 2014  
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/58584/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 14 April 2014 establishes the  
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.  
Just after 14 April 2014, we will send a reminder and identify the  
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior  
to 14 April 2014, 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 14 April 2014 and be excused from all licensing  
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 14 April 2014, please use the  
following form:
   http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/58584/leave

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