Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- MBUI - Abstract User Interface Models
   (http://www.w3.org/TR/abstract-ui/),
   exclusion opportunity ending on  4 April 2014 23:59 UTC


This specification was produced by the Model-Based User Interfaces 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 April 2014
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/50171/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  3 February 2014 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just
after  3 February 2014, we will send a reminder and identify the reference
draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior to  3
February 2014, 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  3 February 2014 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before  3 February 2014, please use the
following form:
  http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/50171/leave

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