Please let me know if you have any Intellectual Property related to XJDF 2.2, JDF 1.8 or PrintTalk 2.2 and if so which of the options you choose to grant:

A.) When requested, Member will grant a license to any such patent claim, at any time issued,
without compensation, to any applicant, regardless of competitive status, desiring to utilize
the license for the purpose of implementing the Specification; or
B.) When requested, Member will grant a license to any such patent claimant any time issued, to
any applicant, regardless of competitive status, under fair and reasonable terms and conditions,

the Member is not willing to comply with or to give assurances under "A" or "B".

The 60 day review period ends on May 28 2024. Minor technical and editorial modifications may still be applied and will be tracked in the CIP4 issue tracking system: https://jira.cip4.org

The specification IP versions #3 of JDF 1.8, XJDF 2.2 and PrintTalk 2.2 are now available for download at: 

All three specifications are incremental updates with respect to their predecessor specifications:

JDF 1.8 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to JDF 1.7.

XJDF 2.2 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to XJDF 2.1.

PrintTalk 2.2 is an incremental upgrade that contains detail changes with respect to PrintTalk 2.1.

 

These are the third IP reviews according to CIP4s IP Policy:

V. Publication Specification Review: At least 30 days prior to when the CTO intends to declare that no further substantive changes will be made to the working draft of a Specification, the CTO will make a “Call for final changes to the draft.” During that period all Members are encouraged to review the working draft for patent claims that they may hold that are necessary for the implementation of any area of the Specification.

After reviewing the suggested changes received from any Member and incorporating such revisions as deemed reasonable, the CTO will submit the final working draft for approval by the Technical Steering Committee and all working group members for comments and IP review within a specified period which shall be not less than 45 days. Working group and Technical Steering Committee Members agree to give, for all patent claims necessary to implement any area of the Specification, via email to the Secretariat@cip4.org, prior to the expiration of the 45-day review period, written assurance as set forth below. Members that made assurances under section IV above, agree not to select option “C” except in relation to changes that have been made to the draft Specification following the initial Specification review (as described in Section IV above). After this period, Members that participated during the development of the Specification (including technical steering committee members) agree to waive the right to select option “C” below for any patent claim necessary to implement the Specification.
