802.22 participants and EC members, I have received a number of comments/complaints about the amount of meeting time that the "expanded" Patent Policy and Anti-trust slides require and the repetitive nature of the presentation thereof (802 opening plenary/Joint Wireless WG opening plenary, WG opening plenary, TG meetings, etc.). Thanks to the 802.22 ad hoc leaders who have been including a link to the slideset in their weekly conference call agendas and reminding participants in each call that our activities are governed by those policies. As a member of the IEEE-SA Board of Governors ("BoG") I had already requested some time for discussion on the agenda of the upcoming BoG meeting next week, with the goal of seeking some guidance on how many times the slideset needs to be presented, when I received the attached message from the Chair of 802.11 to the 802 Executive Committee. I will take the contents of the attached document into account in the discussions at the BoG next week, but would also welcome any additional comments/suggestions from members of 802.22 and/or the 802 EC (on behalf of your WG members) that you may have regarding the proposals in the attached document.
