Hello,

    Nineteen people attended the 7 October 2002 Patent Policy Working
    Group (PPWG) teleconference. The group reviewed a new internal
    working draft that includes all decisions reached at the recent
    face-to-face meeting [1]. The Chair who serves as editor of the policy
    drafts took six editorial action items for next time. They concerned
    invited experts, affiliates, Member companies who might steal ideas
    from the W3C site, the composition of W3C Patent Advisory Groups
    (PAGs), and the definition of "essential claims." The group then
    talked about one of its outstanding issues, a proposal for how
    government agencies that are W3C Members can deal with patents they
    may encounter. The Chair will consult on this with a Member who is
    part of the U.S. government. The group meets next on 21 October.
