      Description

      Section 6 of the JSPA (Special Patent Considerations) requires that all JCP members, even those who do not participate in the development of a JSR, grant essential patent rights to all licensees of that JSR.

      This provision may be a barrier to corporate participation.

      Could it even be enforced against individuals or their employers?

      Should we keep it, or can we drop it?

      Note: our current processes with regard to individuals (Exhibit B) mean that these broad grants are not made by individuals or their employers (Exhibit B refers to a specific JSR only.)
