IMS Global has created this worksheet to solicit and organize examples of publicly-known prior art to assist in potential challenges to patents or applications deemed to impair the open digital credential ecosystem. Organizations' trade secrets are not being collected, but rather the results of work done in the public domain. Interested parties are requested to provide their items for reference as prior art that may be relevant. Please note IMS is a neutral ground for industry collaboration and only the patent office and/or courts of law can resolve IP disputes. IMS is not leading a patent challenge and cannot file a challenge due to IMS' neutral stance. Please add your submissions to the sheet for consideration. Your submission does not need to reference another patent or application to be recorded here, all open and public examples are welcome. The best examples of prior art are records of actual implementations, however design documents and other records are welcome. Finally, the most effective challenges will point to the specific claims expressly made in a patent or application, so please associate the prior art with a claim in the application if possible. Thank you for your assistance to keep open digital credential standards open.
