Subject: October 21 worlshop on Principles in DC and report from our Sept 24-25 RDA breakout sessions

Dear Colleagues,
This is to inform you about the plans for the workshop on Developing Intellectual Property Law Principles for Research Data, which will be held on Tuesday, 21 October 2014 at the National Academy of Sciences main building, 2101 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington DC. Attached is a preliminary agenda and a draft set of Principles, which we already briefly discussed at the RDA breakout session in Amsterdam last month and subsequently revised.
We realize that most of you cannot attend in person, but we are setting up a WebEx platform for you to participate remotely for any part of the meeting. Please let me know by next Friday, the 17th, whether you can participate in person or just remotely.
We also invite everyone, whether you can joiin in this meeting or not, to provide your comments on the attached draft principles by the 17th and return them to me. I will compile them for consideration at the meeting. As an example, I have added two comments by Pawel Kamocki in the appropriate places of the document, so please do the same if you have some time.
Finally, we also will have a wiki formed after the meeting and periodic calls scheduled on Fridays at 10:00 a.m. EDT (Washington time), so that we can make further progress on this document as well as on the case studies. We are aiming to complete all of this material by the time of the next RDA Plenary meeting in March 2015.
For those of you not originally on the mailing list, please register on the rda website (contact me if you are having trouble) and also see the last attachment above, which are the notes by Pawel Kamocki, our rapporteur, from the breakout meetings last month. He sent them to many but not all of you earlier this week.
Please respond by the 17th and we look forward to seeing several of you in person on the 21st.



Paul, Enrique, and Bob
