    Twenty one people attended the 28 October 2002 Patent Policy Working
    Group (PPWG) teleconference. First the group talked about their
    presentation to the W3C Advisory Committee in Boston in November.
    One participant had circulated four issues for in-depth treatment,
    and three more topics were added. The group plans to work on all of
    them and select the top four or so. Next, the group discussed the
    rules for filing formal objections which are due 8 November. Degrees
    of agreement - unanimity, consensus, and dissent - within the PPWG
    were discussed. A question of withdrawing from the PPWG was taken
    offline. It was agreed that multiple organizations can sign on in
    support of a single formal objection rather than write duplicates.
    Finally, the group talked about how the W3C Process Document [1]
    would contain or link to patent policy, and how to work with the
    W3C Advisory Board on this. No changes to the Member Agreements [2,3]
    were foreseen.
