Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Internationalization Best Practices for Spec Developers
   (http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-international-specs-20151020/),
   exclusion opportunity ending on 18 March 2016 23:59 UTC


This specification was produced by the Internationalization Working Group.

If you do not wish to exclude patent claims during this exclusion
opportunity, no further action is required. Member participants who
think their organization may have patent claims to exclude should
contact their Advisory Committee Representative.

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 18 March
2016 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:
  https://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32113/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 18 January 2016 establishes
the reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after 18 January 2016, we will send a reminder and identify the
reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document
prior to 18 January 2016, 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 18 January 2016 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 18 January 2016, please use the
following form:
  https://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/32113/leave

Summary information for this group related to the W3C Patent Policy is
available at:
