Per the W3C Patent Policy:
In the event a patent has been disclosed that may be essential, but is not available under W3C RF licensing requirements, a Patent Advisory Group (PAG) will be launched to resolve the conflict.
On 4 February 2021 W3C launched this PAG in response to disclosures by Tom Jones, in accordance with W3C procedures for launching and operating a PAG.
Questions? Please contact Wendy Seltzer.
At its 17 February 2021 call, PAG participants resolved that individual meeting records would be Member-only and the final PAG report public. The W3C staff updated the PAG's charter in place based on this resolution.
