Technical Summary The disclosure process for intellectual property rights (IPR) in documents produced within the IETF stream is essential to the accurate development of community consensus. However, this process is not always followed by IETF participants. Regardless of the cause or motivation, noncompliance with IPR disclosure rules can delay or even derail completion of IETF specifications. This document describes some strategies for promoting compliance with the IPR disclosure rules. These strategies are primarily intended for use by area directors, working group chairs, and working group secretaries. Working Group Summary This document is not the product of any IETF WG. Document Quality The document has been reviewed in the IETF mail list during Last Call. The authors received actionable feedback from Stephan Wenger and Subramanian Moonesamyby, and both of them expressed satisfaction with changes that were made to resolve their issues.
