The Alliance maintains an Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) Policy that meets the goals of its members, including the public posting of the Alliance IPR Policy, IPR Declaration Form and all IPR declarations, available to the public on the IPR page of the Alliance website. Pursuant to Clause 6 of the Alliance Member Agreement, any stated confidentiality protection of a member organization’s IPR declaration expires three (3) years following the member’s declaration to the Alliance. It is also important to note that the 2004 declarations posted here were made in the context (i) of a different IPR policy and (ii) in relation to historic specifications.
