NENA Intellectual Property Rights Policy

I Purpose

NENA requires an explicit Intellectual Property Rights Policy to conduct its daily work. The objectives of this policy are to:
  1. Ensure that Members’ and participating Entities’ IPR are protected;
  2. Promote awareness of IPR issues among NENA Committees so as to permit informed decision-making about the tradeoffs associated with technical alternatives encountered in committee work; and
  3. Ensure that implementers producing products or services based on NENA standards are not unreasonably inhibited by IPR licensing requirements.

NOTE - 2/02/2012 - The terms of the NENA Intellectual Property Rights Policy have changed.
Please review the Change Notice linked here for information about these changes.


UPDATED Rev. 3.0 – March 15, 2014
