The Web Components Patent Advisory Group (PAG), launch in January 2016, has published a report recommending per Option 1 of the W3C Patent Policy, that W3C continue work on the Web Components Specification. The PAG concludes that the initial concern has been resolved, enabling the Working Group to continue. More detail is available in the PAG report. W3C launches a PAG to resolve issues in the event a patent has been disclosed that may be essential, but is not available under the W3C Royalty-Free licensing terms.
