This is the 4th and final call for review of XJDF 2.1, JDF 1.7 and PrintTalk 2.1 according the CIP4 Intellectual Property Policy:
The final draft versions of JDF 1.7, XJDF 2.1 and PrintTalk 2.1 are now available for download at:
V. Publication Specification Review:
A final draft of each proposed Specification will be distributed to all Members for review not less than 60 days prior to final acceptance and publication of such Specification and the Member agrees to give, for all patent claims necessary to implement any area of the Specification, via email to the Secretariat@cip4.org, prior to the expiration of the 60-day review period(…)
Please let me know if you have any Intellectual Property related to XJDF 2.1, JDF 1.7 or PrintTalk 2.1 and if so which of the options you choose to grant:
A.) When requested, Member will grant a license to any such patent claim, at any time issued,
without compensation, to any applicant, regardless of competitive status, desiring to utilize
the license for the purpose of implementing the Specification; or
B.) When requested, Member will grant a license to any such patent claimant any time issued, to
any applicant, regardless of competitive status, under fair and reasonable terms and conditions,
to utilize the license for the purpose of implementing the Specification; or
C.) For each patent claim, at any time issued, that is necessary to implement areas of the Specification,
the Member is not willing to comply with or to give assurances under "A" or "B".
The 60 day review period ends on June 30 2020. Minor technical and editorial modifications may still be applied and will be tracked in the CIP4 issue tracking system: https://jira.cip4.org
CIP4 aims to publish all specifications simultaneously, therefore PrintTalk 2.1 is being updated to 2.1 although very few technical changes are anticipated due to the fact that PrintTalk 2.0 has just recently been released.
