Dear Advisory Committee representative,

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

- RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing
  exclusion opportunity ending on 16 March 2008

This specification was produced by the following groups:
 - XHTML2 Working Group
 - Semantic Web Deployment Working Group

If you do not wish to exclude patent claims during this exclusion
opportunity, no further action is required.

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
2008 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

To make exclusions, please use one of the following forms:

 XHTML2 Working Group: 

 Semantic Web Deployment 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 16 January 2008 establishes
the reference material [3] for the purposes of this exclusion
opportunity. Just after 16 January 2008, we will send a reminder and
identify the reference draft. Due to the anticipated instability of the
document prior to 16 January 2008, 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 16 January 2008 and be excused from all
licensing commitments arising out of Working Group participation.

To resign from the Working Group before 16 January 2008, please use the
following form:

 XHTML2 Working Group: 

 Semantic Web Deployment Working Group:
