Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Web Cryptography API
  exclusion opportunity ending on 10 February 2013 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the Web Cryptography 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 February
2013 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

To make exclusions, please use the following form:

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 12 December 2012 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just
after 12 December 2012, we will send a reminder and identify the reference
draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior to 12
December 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 12 December 2012 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 12 December 2012, please use the
following form:

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