Here's an example [1], in which 2 paras are relevant:

 * This is a Working Draft as described in the Process Document. It was jointly developed by the W3C XSL Working Group and the W3C XML Query Working Group, each of which is part of the XML Activity. The Working Groups expect to advance this specification to Recommendation Status.

 * This document was produced by groups operating under the 5 February 2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the XML Query Working Group and also maintains a public list of any patent disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the XSL Working Group; those pages also include instructions for disclosing a patent. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

Hope that helps...

Ian
