    Hi Rob,

    Mistake in 'last call' note on 2 Dec. The latest and current
    PDF/is spec is:

      ftp://ftp.pwg.org/pub/pwg/QUALDOCS/wd-pdfis10-20031112.pdf

    (see IPPFAX status slides that I just reforwarded earlier today)

    Cheers,
    - Ira

    Hi Rick,

    The draft pointed to in the Last Call note appears to be the same one that
    this comment applied to. Has there been a draft more recent than August 5?

    Hi Rick,

    I looked up the IP section in the latest (August 5) version of PDF/is.
    Section 16.1 lists 2 patents ('657 and '092) and has "Xerox" associated with
    each. Is this intended to identify Xerox as the patent holder?

    Xerox is the patent holder for '657 but not for '092, which is held by
    Scansoft. So for Point #3, I don't know if Scansoft, as the patent holder,
    "is not currently willing to make the IP freely available," etc. etc. Unless
    someone knows otherwise, it's probably best if the draft doesn't say
    anything about their unwillingness to do something.

    Rob

    IFXers,

    This new version only has a couple of very minor changes.

    Here are the links:
