About the ITU-T Software Copyright Statements Database
In order to facilitate both the standards making process
and the application of ITU-T Recommendations, the Telecommunication
Standardization Bureau (TSB) is making available the ITU-T
Software copyright Statements database composed of information
that was communicated to the TSB by administrations, private
enterprises, etc. that participate in the standards making
activities of the ITU-T Study Groups. The Software copyrights
mentioned in the Statements are embodied fully or partially
in an ITU-T Recommendation.
This database is not certified to be either accurate or complete,
but only reflects the information that has been communicated
to the Telecommunication Standardization Bureau. As such,
the database may be viewed as simply raising a flag to
alert users that they need to contact the organizations
who have communicated Software copyright Statements to the
TSB in order to determine if Software copyright licenses
must be obtained for application of a particular Recommendation.
