Patent Policy

The Patent slides were offered for review.

Agenda Approval

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

Previous Minutes

Dave G moved and Jeff seconded the approval of the November 12, 2012 minutes. There were no objections, and John abstained. The motion was approved.

Action Item Review

Steven reviewed the open action items.

Liaison Reports

Steven reported no relevant activity from either P1800 or P1076.


Dave G has raised a concern on the reflector regarding byte counts for encoded data. John and Steven reviewed the history, and concluded that accurate counts were required since any ending marker would be within the alphabet of the common encoding schemes.

License Management

Dave has delivered an initial draft to Joe and will be refreshing the draft on Wednesday. He requested review from the group for the draft to come.

Key Management

Steven delivered an updated draft with the legacy text removed. Not all of John's review comments have been incorporated yet, and Steven expects to deal with those in the next draft.

Rights Management

Dave G acknowledged John's review comment from last week, and the group discussed the conflict between private rights and the potential for transformative tools to invalidate those rights.

Dave G also renewed the call for review feedback.

Common Rights and Visibility

John won't have material for the current draft update.
