Technical Summary This document updates RFC 3978 "IETF Rights in Contributions" to recognize that the IETF Trust is now the proper custodian of all IETF-related intellectual property rights. Working Group Summary There was rapid agreement in principle for this housekeeping update, given that full resolution of the open issues in RFC 3978 is taking longer than expected, and that the formation of the IETF Trust needs to be recognized. WG Last Call comments were covered. IETF Last Call comments led to editorial corrections. Protocol Quality Reviewed by Brian Carpenter for the IESG. Implementation requires the community to be notified of minor changes to the RFC boilerplate. Note to RFC Editor Please note that the copyright statement text for RFCs is modified by this document.
