Please send substantive comments to the email@example.com mailing lists by 2012-05-28. Exceptionally, comments may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of the Subject line to allow automated sorting. Abstract The disclosure process for intellectual property rights (IPR) in documents produced within the IETF stream is essential to the accurate development of community consensus. However, this process is not always followed by participants during IETF standardization. Regardless of the cause or motivation, noncompliance with IPR disclosure rules can derail or delay completion of standards documents. This document describes strategies for promoting compliance with the IPR disclosure rules. The strategies are primarily intended for area directors, working group chairs, and working group secretaries. The file can be obtained via http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-polk-ipr-disclosure/ IESG discussion can be tracked via http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-polk-ipr-disclosure/ballot/ No IPR declarations have been submitted directly on this I-D.
