Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

    Trace Context
     https://www.w3.org/TR/2018/WD-distributed-tracing-20181106/
         exclusion opportunity ending on 2019/04/05

This specification was produced by
     the Distributed Tracing 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 2019/04/05
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

The Patent Policy anticipates that the documents will evolve during the
90 days following the first publication.  Per section 4.1 of the Patent
Policy [1], whatever draft is available on 2019/02/04 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity.
Just after 2019/02/04 we will send a reminder of this exclusion opportunity.

Per section 4.2 of the Patent Policy [2], a Participant may resign from
the Working Group before 2019/02/04 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.
