HTML Working Group Patent Disclosures

The following statements are the patent disclosures and license commitments associated with the deliverables of the HTML Working Group (members only) provided by Working Group members as suggested by the 24 January 2002 W3C Current Patent Practice as amended by the W3C Patent Policy Transition Procedure. An individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual believes contains Essential Claim(s) with respect to the deliverables of the HTML Working Group should disclose the information in accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.

W3C does not take a position regarding the validity or scope of any intellectual property right or other rights that might be claimed to pertain to the implementation or use of the technology, nor the extent to which any license under such rights might or might not be available. Copyright of WG deliverables is vested in the W3C.

Note: Members of the Working Group are expected to disclose any intellectual property they have in the area. This WG works on a royalty-free basis. The Working Group is thus obliged to produce a specification which relies only on intellectual property available on a royalty-free basis.

As of today, the HTML Working Group participants and the W3C are not aware of any patents that are essential to implement the deliverables of the HTML Working Group, described in the HTML Working Group Charter.
