DVB extend patent pool to globally executable MHP

The DVB Project have extended the work of the DVB patent coordinator to include an assessment of their recently adopted specification for the globally executable MHP.
The work of the coordinator, Sughrue Mion PLLC, will now encompass the DVB's MHP specification, the OCAP specification of CableLabs, and the GEM specification. DVB, together with CableLabs and Sughrue, recently held a first meeting for potential declarants and other interested parties to discuss the pooling process in Geneva.
The patent coordinator's work is to review declarations made of patents essential to these and other DVB specifications. It is the first step in a process leading to the formation of a patent pool covering these standards. The objective is to create efficient access to the intellectual property rights necessary for implementation and offered on terms fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory.
Holders of IPRs essential to a DVB specification should make their declarations as promptly as possible to Sughrue Mion.
