Resolution 1: Reason for Disapproval

Germany disapproves the New Work Item Proposal regarding (MPEG-21) on the basis that the NP supporting documentation submitted only at the meeting could not sufficiently document the novelty and necessity of this new work item, as seems to be overlapping among others with by SC29 already approved Audio-Visual Framework, such as the PAS submitted by DAVIC. Also due to the late submission of the documents there was no time do discuss their merits within the German National Body. Germany is on the opinion that the current work exploring MPEG-21 - which explanatory work Germany supports - could have been continued without any delay under the same time schedule, but would have allowed MPEG to come back with more crisper ideas about the MPEG-21 project, and the voting on a new Work Item Proposal at this point was not necessary at all. If voting should have been necessary it could have been done after a more effective preparation of the supporting documentation by an SC 29 letter ballot. This would have better served WG11, SC 29, JTC 1 and the outside world.
