[802SEC] RevCom submission/Patent Policy
Item 12 A on the current RevCom submittal form help notes
appears to violate the statements made on the first slide of the current
patent policy slide set (that WG Chairs are supposed to use at their
meetings) that states specifically that "neither the IEEE, the WG nor the
WG Chairman ensure the accuracy or completeness of any disclosure or
whether any disclosure is of a patent that in fact may be essential for the
use of standards under development".
It would appear that checking the YES box on the 12 A section of the RevCom
form would violate current patents policy, as it could be construed as
making a determination of the applicability or otherwise of any disclosures
that have been made.
