    I am not sure it is necessary (or appropriate) to remove any materials
    from the PWG archives. In fact, I feel the work accomplished in the PWG
    should certainly be preserved.
    A separate topic is whether or not we should continue moving the current
    work forward to Candidate Standard at this time. If we do move to CS, we
    will need to make it very clear and visible that IPP MailTo will not
    likely become a PWG Standard while the patent right continues to be
    asserted according to the registered LOA.

    IPP> IPP 'mailto' Specification and Ricoh Patent

    Due to the stated position of Ricoh Company, Ltd. (RCL) with respect to
    patent #6,889,263 and the IPP 'mailto' specification, all work on this
    document will end immediately. The draft documents will remain in the IPP
    archives, but all references to IPP 'mailto' will be removed from the web
    site. My sincere thanks to all who have contributed to this effort over
    the last 5 to 7 years.
    See attached email for further details.
