Thank you but I'm confused. Can you send me the link to the charter so I can get legal to review this. Cisco explicitly did not join DAP as we did not want to be bound by the IPR commitments of DAP so the idea this is bound by the IPR commitments of both is very concerning to us. I imagine that Microsoft would be equally concerned to be bound by the IPR commitments of WebRTC.
