Subject: Re: [cabfpub] Review Notice – Ballot 218



We forgot to include the deadline of August 1st 2018 in section 1.2.2 (Relevant 
Dates) for the deprecation of methods #1 and #5. It is an uncontroversial 
change but unfortunately, as previously discussed, we don't have a process for 
"editorial" changes.

IPR Policy Section 4.1 - Review of Draft Specifications.  Prior to the approval 
of a CAB Forum Draft Guideline as a CAB Forum Final Guideline or Final 
Maintenance Guideline there shall be a review period during which Participants 
may exclude certain Essential Claims from CAB Forum RF Licenses. The CAB Forum 
Chair shall initiate the Review Period by distributing to each CAB Forum 
Participant a notice of review period and a complete draft of the Draft 
Guideline that is the subject of such notice (“Review Notice”). Each 
Participant on behalf of itself and its Affiliates shall have sixty (60) days 
following the date of the receipt of such Review Notice (“Review Period”) to 
review such Draft Guideline and consider any licensing obligations with respect 
to any Essential Claims that may be encompassed by such Draft Guideline. The 
approval of a CAB Forum Final Maintenance Guideline shall follow the same 
process except that the Review Period shall be thirty (30) days.


Section 4.2 - Excluding Patents and/or Patent Applications From Royalty Free 
Licensing Obligations During Review Period.  Except for Essential Claims 
encompassed by a Participant’s Contributions that are actually incorporated 
into a Final Guideline or Final Maintenance Guideline approved in accordance 
with the CAB Forum Guideline approval process, Participants may within the 
Review Period exclude Essential Claims from the CAB Forum RF License. In such 
case, Participant shall be permitted to either make an election, (i) not to 
grant a license or (ii) to provide a license with all of the requirements of 
Section 5.1 with the exception of subsection 5.1 f.

Bylaws Section 2.4 - Requirements for Draft Guideline Ballots ***

(e)  If a Draft Guideline Ballot passes the Initial Vote, the Chair shall 
initiate, no later than the 3rd business day after the announcement of the 
Initial Vote results, the Review Period of 30 or 60 days, as applicable and as 
described in Section 4.1 of the IPR Policy.  The Chair will initiate the Review 
Period by sending the Review Notice to both the Member Mail List and the Public 
Mail List.  The Review Notice will clearly specify the open and close dates and 
times (with time zone) of the Review Period.  If the Chair does not initiate 
the Review Period within 5 business days after the announcement of the Initial 
Vote results, the Vice Chair may initiate the Review Period, using the same 
process as the Chair would have been required to use. 


(f)  The Review Period will continue to the end of the 30- or 60-day period, as 
applicable, regardless of the number of Exclusion Notices filed pursuant to the 
IPR Policy during such period, if any.  No later than 3 business days after the 
conclusion of the applicable Review Period, the Chair will distribute any 
Exclusion Notices submitted in accordance with Section 4.2 of the IPR Policy 
via the Public Mail List; provided, however, that the Chair may distribute such 
Exclusion Notices earlier.***
