7.5 Advisory Group on Management (AGM)
Prof. Touradj Ebrahimi, the AGM Convener, reported on the current status and the process for a new Amendment of the common ISO base media file format, ISO/IEC 15444-12 and ISO/IEC 14496-12. He also reported the discussions on SC 29 IPR matters between SC 29/WGs Conveners, and proposed to change "SC 29 IPR Policy" to "SC 29 IPR Guidelines" and re-edit the Guidelines to be in line with the ISO/IEC IPR Policy.
In response to the question by Dr. Istban Sebestyen, Germany, SC 29 Software Implementation Guidelines was also revised.
In the course of the discussion, SC 29 decided to inform the ISO and IEC responsible for IPR policies of SC 29's serious concerns regarding deployment of SC 29 past and present standards.

7.6 National Body Contribution
SC 29 reviewed the following contributions from the NB of UK.

ISO/IEC 10918:
SC 29 decided to make editorial changes to Annex L Patents in ISO/IEC 10918-1:1994 and revise it. SC 29 noted that the new edition will not change the requirement to consider ISO/IEC 10918-1:1994 in the 2005 periodic review.

WG 11 General Reflector:
The NB of UK recommended that IPSJ/ITSCJ make SC 29 mailing list (information only), SC 29/AGM reflector, and WG 11 general reflector closed. The SC 29 Secretariat replied that IPSJ/ITSCJ was investigating new mailing list software and plans to move the SC 29 and SC 29/AGM Reflectors to closed reflectors after testing is completed.

Location of SC 29 Plenary meetings:
To facilitate the attendance of SC 29 Plenary meeting delegate in the associated WGs meetings, SC 29 agreed to have its SC 29 Plenary collocated with all WG meetings preferably.

WD/CD version control:
To facilitate experts reviewing drafts, SC 29 decided to encourage its WGs to circulate only to WG technical experts WD and CD documents with tracking changes visible.

JTC 1 Patent database:
The NB of UK expressed concern that ISO/IEC JTC 1 Patents Database has not been released. SC 29 noted that the database will be made available in autumn 2003, and all the existing statements will be made available in a timely manner and before publication of the standard. SC 29 agreed to request ITTF to provide detailed information on the status of the database to JTC 1 and SC 29 P-members.

Procedure for "Minor Enhancement" and "Subdivision"
SC 29 agreed to keep the current minor enhancement and subdivision procedure which is in line with the JTC 1 Directives. SC 29 agreed to encourage its WGs to use New Work Item Proposal procedures where appropriate. SC 29 noted that this will provide an opportunity for NBs to list known patents in the area on earlier stage.

SC 29 requested the WG 1 Convener to nominate a representative for the ISO Steering Committee on Image Technology (ISO SCIT).

CRF is a not-for-profit, global consortium, which is developing specifications that will be available as standards to facilitate the implementation of P2P digital content distribution systems. The CRF would like to enable the dynamic delivery of the right content with the right commercial terms for a given consumer and value chain context.
