  • The Board of Directors of OASIS, the international open standards consortium, has unanimously approved a revision to its Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy. This revision now offers an added option for new Technical Committees to work under: a Non-Assertion Covenant mode. Non-assertion covenants ensure that organizations or individuals who participate in writing a standard cannot demand royalty or exercise license rights against users or implementors of such approved standards. Qualifying participants or contributors automatically make Non-Assertion Covenants when they work in an OASIS Technical Committee that operates under this new IPR mode.
