The disclosure process for intellectual property rights (IPR) in
documents produced within the IETF stream is essential to the
accurate development of community consensus.  However, this process
is not always followed by IETF participants.  Regardless of the cause
or motivation, noncompliance with IPR disclosure rules can delay or
even derail completion of IETF specifications.  This document
describes some strategies for promoting compliance with the IPR
disclosure rules.  These strategies are primarily intended for use by
area directors, working group chairs, and working group secretaries.  
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
