      Description

      Not withstanding the current claim that Section 4B of the JSPA 2 allows an "evaluation license to members of the EC", the wording of Section 4B does not explicitly name the Executive Committee:

      B. Grants to Other Expert Group Members. You hereby grant to Member represented on any
      Expert Group on which You are also represented under Your applicable patents, copyrights and trade secret
      rights which You currently have or may acquire in the future a perpetual, non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty free,
      fully paid-up, irrevocable license to use Your Contributions for research and development purposes
      related to the activities of such Expert Group. Similarly, Oracle makes the same grant to You with respect to its
      Contributions concerning Expert Groups on which You are represented. These grants, from You to other
      Members and from Oracle to You, shall not include distribution to third parties of early access implementations
      of the Spec under development by Your Expert Group until the draft Spec has been released for Public
      Review.

      This needs to be spelled out explicitly.

      Further, in the interest of transparency, JCP members should be able to provide input on the validity of RIs and TCKs without the burdon of having to become licensees of the technology.

        This is the venue for tracking technical issues with the JSR 356 specification.

        I am closing this issue because it isn't a technical; this is not the right venue for a discussion about the legal aspects of Oracle's TCK License.

        Scott, I am going to ask you to raise this at in JCP Executive Committee directly through your representative, Mark Little.
