Dear WHATWG and Mr. Hickson,

Apple Computer, Inc. (“Apple”) believes it has intellectual property  
(“IP Rights”) relative to WHATWG’s Web Applications 1.0 Working  
Draft, dated
March 24, 2005, Section 10.1, entitled “Graphics:  The bitmap  
canvas”.   At
this time, Apple reserves all rights in its IP Rights and makes no
representations as to Apple’s willingness or unwillingness to license  
IP Rights.  However, in the event that the Web Applications 1.0 Working
Draft, dated March 24, 2005, becomes part of a formalized draft  
standard at
W3C or IETF, for example, Apple is prepared to address the
disclosure/licensing rules of such organizations.

Any questions regarding this communication should be directed to:
