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.
