stds-802-16: new IEEE 802.16 Contribution Release statement
The IEEE Copyright Administrator has approved a new 802.16
contribution release statement. The idea is to ensure that IEEE can
use contributed material in its standards without having to go back
and seek permission from every contributor.
Notice that the contributor does not give up the rights to the
material. This means that you shouldn't need to come back to IEEE for
permission to use your own contribution. I thank Scott Marin for
raising this issue.
The statement, which is posted at
"Written contributions to IEEE 802.16 standards development will not
be accepted without an the following release, which will be part of
the mandatory contribution cover sheet: 'The contributor grants a
free, irrevocable license to the IEEE to incorporate text contained
in this contribution, and any modifications thereof, in the creation
of an IEEE Standards publication; to copyright in the IEEE's name any
IEEE Standards publication even though it may include portions of
this contribution; and at the IEEE's sole discretion to permit others
to reproduce in whole or in part the resulting IEEE Standards
publication. The contributor also acknowledges and accepts that this
contribution may be made public by IEEE 802.16.'"
By the way, the text is borrowed from material used by the TIA.
This text will be incorporated in Version 8 of the 802.16 Document
Submission Template, which I expect to post next Monday.
