Policy Regarding Intellectual Property

Pub 207

ODVA seeks to ensure that, to the greatest extent practicable, the technical specifications and technical standards (collectively, the "Specifications") it develops, as well as the other work product it develops, including, but not limited to, white papers or other publications, test plans, software applications, and developer toolkits (“Other ODVA Material”), remain vendor-neutral, open, and vibrant, while at the same time recognizing and protecting the legitimate intellectual property rights of its Members and other contributors of intellectual property. The purpose of this policy pertaining to intellectual property (“Policy”) is to provide clear rules regarding the rights and obligations of all ODVA Members and other ODVA contributors regarding intellectual property as it relates to ODVA Specifications and Other ODVA Material, in order to promote the development, adoption, and the widest possible deployment of the best Specifications and Other ODVA Material by Licensed Vendors.
