Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- WebCGM 2.1
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/webcgm21/),
  exclusion opportunity ending on 14 February 2009 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the WebCGM 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 14 February
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/39256/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 December 2008 establishes
the reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion
opportunity. Just after 16 December 2008, we will send a reminder and
identify the reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the
document prior to 16 December 2008, 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 December 2008 and be excused from all
licensing commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 16 December 2008, please use the
following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/39256/join

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