Re: [ebxml-dev] Freely available patents from IBM - but what aboutebXML CPPA?

I don't believe it was. If any patents had been covered it would have 
required more than just an agreement between OASIS and CEFACT. Normally, 
the participants in an effort are required to agree to an IP policy as a 
condition of contributing work. The ebXML Work Group was never a formal 
entity, and it didn't have any IP policies. I don't recall being asked 
to abide by either the OASIS or CEFACT IP policies.

I would like to see IBM tie up the loose ends on TP XML and include it 
on this or a similar list.
