ddeutsch commented on JSR358-26:
--------------------------------

Oracle supports removal of the requirement that JCP members not engaged in an 
expert group must commit their essential technology but believes futher 
discussion is needed to consider everything specified in section 6. In 
particular, we want to ensure that the JSPA specifies the commitments 
required of expert group participants for claims on technology that they did 
not contribute.  Unless this is addressed elsewhere in the JSPA, simply 
deleting section 6 may not be appropriate.  A "Term Sheet" should be agreed 
specifying patent commitments for at least the following situations:
* Spec Lead

* Member of expert group
** their contributions
** contributions of others
* members of the JCP not in the expert group

> Keep or eliminate Section 6 of the JSPA (Special Patent Considerations)?

> 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.)
