Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Grid Layout
  (http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-grid-layout),
  exclusion opportunity ending on  4 September 2011 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
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  4
September 2011 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
http://www.w3.org/Consortium/Patent-Policy-20040205/#sec-Exclusion

To make exclusions, please use the following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32061/exclude

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  6 July 2011 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after  6 July 2011, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document
prior to  6 July 2011, 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  6 July 2011 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before  6 July 2011, please use the
following form:
 http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32061/join
