The following was approved by a Call for Consensus that ended on 14 May
2016.

 

The proposed changes are:

to

 

"Furthermore, subject to further restrictions included in the Member
Agreement, representatives of Member organizations participate in W3C as
follows:"

 

in 2.1.1 Rights of Members, third paragraph,

 

change

 

"In the case (described in paragraph 5g of the Membership Agreement), where
a Member organization is itself a consortium, user society, or otherwise has
members or sponsors, the organization's paid staff and Advisory Committee
representative exercise all the rights and privileges of W3C membership. In
addition, the Advisory Committee representative may designate up to four (or
more at the Team's discretion) individuals who, though not employed by the
organization, may exercise the rights of Member representatives. These
individuals must disclose their employment affiliation when participating in
W3C work. Provisions for related Members apply. Furthermore, these
individuals are expected to represent the broad interests of the W3C Member
organization and not the parochial interests of their employers."

 

to

 

"If the Member is itself a consortium, user society, or otherwise has
members or sponsors, as described in paragraph 5g of the Member Agreement,
the rights and privileges granted by W3C Process extend to the
organization's paid employees and its appointed Advisory Committee
representative, who exercise all the rights and privileges of W3C
membership.

 

Such an organization may also designate up to four (or more at the Team's
discretion) non-employee individuals who may exercise the rights of Member
representatives.

 

* For Consortium who have individual persons as Members these
representatives must disclose their employment affiliations when
participating in W3C work. Provisions for related Members apply.
Furthermore, these individuals must represent the broad interests of the W3C
Member organization which appoints them and not the particular interests of
their employers.

 

* For Consortium who have organizations as Members, all such designated
representatives must be an official representative of the Member
organization's (i.e. a Committee or Task Force Chairperson) and must
disclose their employment affiliations when participating in W3C work.
Provisions for related Members apply. Furthermore, these individuals must
represent the broad interests of the W3C Member organization and not the
particular interests of their employers.

 

* In both cases any IPR contributions are only those of the individual
person or Consortium they are representing as no IPR commitments have been
granted by the individuals' employers."
