Participation in OpenTravel Activities
OpenTravel is a travel industry community effort to develop voluntary XML-based communications specifications and thereby facilitate the use of electronic commerce in our industry. These specifications are developed through a consensus building process that encourages the active participation of all Member Companies’ representatives. Suggestions made at OpenTravel meetings are therefore likely to be included in OpenTravel specifications. Member companies and potential member companies should be aware of this and closely review the membership agreement. OpenTravel is the owner of OpenTravel specifications, and each member company grants the OpenTravel Alliance with the right to sublicense to other member companies, their affiliates, and end users, a non-exclusive, royalty-free license as defined in the membership agreement.
