Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- High Resolution Time
 (http://www.w3.org/TR/hr-time/),
 exclusion opportunity ending on 10 August 2012 23:59 UTC

This specification was 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 10 August 2012
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 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 11 June 2012 establishes the reference
material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just after 11
June 2012, we will send a reminder and identify the reference draft. Due to
the anticipated instability of the document prior to 11 June 2012,
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 11 June 2012 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 11 June 2012, 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:
http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/45211/status

If you have any questions or need further information, please contact,
for the Web Performance Working Group:
