NENA requires an explicit Intellectual Property Rights Policy to conduct its daily work. The objectives of this policy are to:
- Ensure that Members’ and participating Entities’ IPR are protected;
- 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
- 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.
