Hi Markus,

Thanks for the clarification.  I could not find the pointers that you
mention; if you could provide a URL to the patent list and license
terms, that would be very useful.  I understand you have already said
that this would be some flavor of RAND, but the working group comments
seem to indicate folks want to see the actual license text if that is
available.

thanks again,

Ted Hardie
