Standards-development organizations (SDOs) comprise participants from large and small companies, academia, and the open source community. The participants come with varying backgrounds with regard to copyright and patents in the areas that are being standardized, and the SDOs must deal with these issues in ways that both satisfy the participants (and their employers) and result in useful standards. Each SDO - including the IEEE - has its own intellectual property (IP) policy. This issue, we look at how the IETF handles IP, in an overview cowritten by an attorney who has represented the IETF for some years and the current IETF Chair.
