     Seventeen people attended the 26 August 2002 Patent Policy Working
     Group (PPWG) teleconference (the first meeting since the July face
     to face). The group discussed at length the disclosure and
     licensing obligations of employees of the W3C hosts, MIT, INRIA,
     and Keio. Part of the group felt that MIT is not set up in the same
     way as a commercial entity. Others felt the same rules that apply
     to Members should apply to hosts. Two participants in the PPWG will
     investigate and report back. Then the group discussed the
     possibility of "have made" obligations for parties entering into
     distributed licensing agreements. For example Party A may license
     to B who licenses to C who licenses to D. "Exhaustion of remedies"
     was pointed out. A sub-group of the PPWG will discuss this offline
     and report back. Finally the group agreed to their teleconference
     schedule for August and September.

Best wishes,
