    Scott,

    Thanks for joining the IPP FAX telecon this morning. I have a few
    questions:

    1. As you indicated on the telecon, the IEEE-ISTO may need to get a license
    for TIFF from Adobe in order to progress our Universal Image Format (UIF)
    standard, which builds on TIFF/FX, correct?

    2. You indicated that that license might have some constraints. What sort
    of constraints?

    3. Are there any changes to the UIF document that would avoid the need for a
    license from Adobe or allow us to get one?

    For example, not using the image/tiff MIME Media type which confuses
    existing TIFF readers into thinking they can understand the contents, but to
    use a new MIME Media type.

    Thanks,
    Tom

    Greetings all....

    I am the Adobe point of contact for the use of TIFF.

    I joined the mailing list so I could assist your group in its use of
    TIFF as the basis of some of your work.

    As I indicated during this morning conference call, I think there are
    issues in your use of TIFF that require further examination.

    I look forward to working with you on this.......Scott
