Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.1
   (https://www.w3.org/TR/2017/WD-ttml-imsc1.1-20171017/),
   exclusion opportunity ending on 16 March 2018 23:59 UTC


This specification was produced by the Timed Text 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 16 March 2018
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
  https://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/34314/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 15 January 2018 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just
after 15 January 2018, we will send a reminder and identify the reference
draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior to 15
January 2018, 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 15 January 2018 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 15 January 2018, please use the
following form:
  https://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/34314/leave
