Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- Media Capture Depth Stream Extensions
   exclusion opportunity ending on  6 March 2015 23:59 UTC

This specification was produced by the following groups:
  - Device APIs Working Group
  - Web Real-Time Communications 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  6 March 2015
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

  Device APIs Working Group: http://www.w3.org/2004/01/pp-impl/43696/exclude
  Web Real-Time Communications Working Group:

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  5 January 2015 establishes the
reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion opportunity. Just
after  5 January 2015, we will send a reminder and identify the reference
draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the document prior to  5
January 2015, 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  5 January 2015 and be excused from all licensing
commitments arising out of Working Group participation.
