Rights Management

Dave G moved and John seconded a motion to approve the Recommendations changes to address John's prior comments. The motion is approved.

Common Rights and Visibility

John reviewed the requirement for common semantics around visibility management and error reporting. Jeff noted that IP producers have a variety of perspectives on visibility protection and often restrict visibility in leiu of a deep understanding of the security concerns. Steve pointed out that our working group charter gives us a forum to provide recommendations with rationale for why certain of our visibility controls might be desirable for IP producers to choose.

Steven noted that there is conflicting syntax in the current draft for rights controls. Joe requested that we have agreement in early August so he can work on making the current draft content consistent.

Work Plan

Joe expects the working group to finalize the areas of technical content by the end of August in order to keep pace with an end-of-year ballot. He also expects to iterate on a monthly draft update through the fall of this year.
