That's a fair point; on reflection, the difference is that those other 
organisations' work is earlier in the life-cycle, and therefore a little 
further from the point at which the results are formalised as a 
licensable product. I agree that we need to have clear guidelines in 
place, and a simple process to ensure that participants are welcomed and 
understand the basis on which they contribute. (In fact, I guess, that's 
been a shortcoming of those meetings where I haven't had to sign 
anything... there was uncertainty about the basis for participation).

I just wanted to apply a quick sanity-check. I'm happy with the explanation.
