Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Timing control for script-based animations
 (http://www.w3.org/TR/animation-timing/),
 exclusion opportunity ending on 30 October 2011 23:59 UTC

- Page Visibility
 (http://www.w3.org/TR/page-visibility/),
 exclusion opportunity ending on 30 October 2011 23:59 UTC

These specifications were produced by the Web Performance 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 30 October 2011 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/45211/exclude

The Patent Policy anticipates that the documents will evolve during the 90 days following the first publication.  Per section 4.1 of the Patent Policy [1], whatever draft is available on 31 August 2011 establishes the reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just after 31 August 2011, we will send a reminder and identify the reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the documents prior to 31 August 2011, 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 31 August 2011 and be excused from all licensing commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 31 August 2011, please use the following form:
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/45211/join

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