Dear Claus,    (05)

I am writing this inquiry in my capacity as Chair of the OASIS UBL
Technical Comittee.  It has come to the Committee's attention that
SAP and/or Dr. Gunther Stuhec may be the named patentees/assignees
of patents purporting to claim technology relating to the work of
OASIS and UN/CEFACT in constructing UBL and ebXML.  Therefore, our
Committee respectfully requests and would appreciate a statement
from SAP and Dr. Stuhec as to your position concerning the extent
to which any patents held by either may claim all or a portion of
the work of our Committee.  Furthermore, we also request your
position as to the extent to which you anticipate attempting to
assert claims, if at all, against implementers of the technology
adopted as a standard of our committee.    (06)

We request a response in 30 days, preferably sooner, and greatly
appreciate your cooperation.    (07)

Nothing in this inquiry is intended to suggest that we believe any
patents are relevant to any of the work performed by our
Committee.  Nothing herein is intended to constitute an admission
or acknowledgment of liability or infringement of any kind.    (08)

Thank you.    (09)

Sincerely,    (010)

Jon Bosak    (011)
