As a third party participant not unlike IAB, (though OTA is not a trade
organization), I think it is important we be inclusive of key stakeholder
groups.  I think there continues to be confusion on the role and rights of
members vs. invited experts.  Perhaps a simple chart can be created that can
provide clarification, (if it already exists I apologize for missing it).  

 

If the answer is we need to be a member, we need to understand the
landscape.

Hi Thomas and Co-Chairs,

 

Per today's Working Group conference call, where I was not allowed to
volunteer to draft language for the work product of this group (the spec), I
am following up yet once again on my multiple inquiries in the thread below
and elsewhere.  To date, I don't believe we have ever received a formal
reply from the co-chairs or the W3C on this issue, yet we (the IAB) were
specifically invited to participate in this Working Group by the W3C from
the early days of the working group.  We have been participating faithfully
all along, per your request and at the request of several W3C members
(listed below).  But if you don't want us to participate now in what is
supposed to be an open multi-stakeholder process to define a spec that will
affect industry, please make that clear now in writing.  Otherwise, please
kindly formalize our participation as invited experts, so we may fully
participate in this process.  I look forward to your prompt reply.

 

Thank You Kindly,

 

Chris

Hi Thomas,

 

I hope this email finds you well.  I'm just following up on this thread
again, as I have yet to receive a reply after your June 22nd note below.  I
believe the ball is still in your court, but if you see it differently,
please let us know.

 

Kind Regards,

 

Chris

Thanks, Chris, for your note -- I'd love to catch up further about this
today, but unfortunately, I'm about to run out of the room to catch my cab
to the airport. 

 

Let's find time to talk on 2 July, as I'll be at a conference with 14h days
between now and next Friday.

 

Thanks,

Thanks Kimon!

 

So, with the removal of all known barriers now, it would be great to know if
there is anything else sill holding back this decision at the W3C today?

 

To summarize, we have seen formal proposals for our inclusion as "invited
experts" to this working group now from the following W3C members:

*	JC Cannon, Microsoft (before the last face-to-face)
*	Shane Wiley, Yahoo!
*	Marc Groman, NAI
*	Kimon Zorbas, IAB EU

We look forward to participating under these terms.

 

Best Regards,

 

Chris

Subject: IAB US participation as expert

 

Dear all,

 

we would support the invitation of our IAB US colleagues as "Invited
Experts" to the Tracking Protection Working Group, specifically:

 

- Mike Zaneis, SVP of Public Policy at IAB

- Chris Mejia, Director of Ad Technology and Digital Supply Chain Solutions
at IAB

- Brendan Riordan-Butterworth, Director of Ad Technology at IAB

 

IAB US's expertise of the US market would be invaluable to the Working Group
and allowing them to contribute as "full members" might help consolidate
industry views.

 

Kind regards,

Kimon
