Patent Policy

The Patent slides were offered for review.

No new claims were disclosed at the call for essential patent claims.

Agenda Approval

Motion by Jarek, seconded by Dave G. Motion is approved.

Previous Minutes

Dave G moved and Ray seconded the approval of the December 19, 2011 minutes. The motion was approved.

Action Item Review

Steven reviewed the open action items.

Liaison Reports

Jarek reported on P1076 activity, there was no discussion on encryption related topics at their last meeting.

Steven reported on discussions with Joe Daniel regarding his availability to do technical editing for P1735. He still needs to close with IEEE SA on P1735 project management issues.

Dave G moved and Jarek seconded a recommendation to pursue a contract with Joe Daniel if possible for technical editing. The motion was approved.


License Management

Key Management

Rights Management

Parminder discussed the Rights Management proposals posted to the P1735Recommendations page. The proposal has changed to simplify the relationships between blocks, keys, and digests. The notion of data state has been omitted because the complexity didn't seem to deliver enough value for the first balloted standard.

Additional rationale and philosophy behind the recommendations will be helpful to the technical editor and ballot group. Dave assured the working group that such text would be developed.

Jarek expressed an interest in sharing some material more widely than the working group to get feedback. Steven noted that IEEE rules will likely prevent us from sharing the white papers and draft recommendations directly, but that a focussed "market survey" could share some technical details while seeking specific feedback. When we have a draft document ready, that could also be shared via the IEEE store before balloting.
