The IPRPAG includes patent and copyright law experts who are familiar with the types of IP issues that arise in standards development. The Executive Standards Council (ExSC) retains authority of all aspects of the ANSI Essential Requirements, including ANSI’s own Patent Policy, but the ExSC often solicits input from the IPRPAG when interpreting or considering revisions to the ANSI Patent Policy, as well as accreditation and reaccreditation decisions.
Copyright Task Force
The ANSI Copyright Task Force is a standing committee of the IPRPAG that provides views and proposes policies regarding exploitation rights to the copyright in standards and the recognition of copyright protection for stands by courts, legislatures, regulatory bodies industry and other. The Copyright Task Force is made up of IPRPAG members.
