Apple Patent Exclusion on Widgets 1.0: Updates

Hi, WebApps WG-

Please be advised that Apple has disclosed a patent [1][2] and excluded 
claims from the W3C Royalty-Free License commitment of the W3C Patent 
Policy [3], for the Widgets 1.0: Updates specification [4].

The W3C Team, in conjunction with the Chairs and Apple, are now 
following the procedures for launching and operating a Patent Advisory 
Group (PAG). [5]  We will update this Working Group as more details unfold.
