OASIS XML Common Biometric Format (XCBF) TC

This TC operates under the Legacy IPR Policy.

Submitted to OASIS on 1 June 2003

From: John Messing (messing@law-on-line.com)

In connection with the Digital Signature Services Technical Committee, I made a disclosure of intellectual property which I feel it is appropriate to repeat in [the XCBF] TC, of which I have recently become a member. Please see:


for the terms of the initial disclosure.

The restated disclosure as to XCBF is as follows:

If an OASIS Standard incorporating either the court filing or eNotarization contribution is adopted by OASIS pursuant to the current XCBF Technical Committee Charter, I will endeavor to license, for the purpose of implementing and complying with the required portions of a resulting OASIS XCBF Standard, patent rights to necessary claims under reasonable and non-discriminatory terms and conditions to be established after such patent(s) are issued and final.

Please contact me if there are any questions. Best regards to all.
