Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Requirements for Powerful Features
   (http://www.w3.org/TR/2014/WD-powerful-features-20141204/),
   exclusion opportunity ending on  3 May 2015 23:59 UTC


This specification was produced by the Web Application Security 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  3 May 2015
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/49309/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  4 March 2015 establishes the reference
material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just after  4
March 2015, we will send a reminder and identify the reference draft. Due
to the anticipated instability of the document prior to  4 March 2015,
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  4 March 2015 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before  4 March 2015, please use the
following form:
  http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/49309/leave

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