<!--NewPage-->
<!-- this is for html2ps -->
<p>W3C uses the term "liaison" to refer to coordination of activities with a
variety of organizations, through a number of mechanisms ranging from very
informal (e.g., an individual from another organization participates in a W3C
Working Group, or just follows its work) to mutual membership, to even more
formal agreements. Liaisons are not meant to substitute for W3C membership.</p>
<p>All liaisons <span class="rfc2119">MUST</span> be coordinated by the Team
due to requirements for public communication; patent, copyright, and other IPR
policies; confidentiality agreements; and mutual membership agreements.</p>
<p>The W3C Director <span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> negotiate and sign a
<a name="mou" id="mou">Memorandum of Understanding (<acronym>MoU</acronym>)</a>
with another organization. Before signing the MoU, the Team <span class=
"rfc2119">MUST</span> inform the Advisory Committee of the intent to sign and
make the MoU available for Advisory Committee review; the Advisory Committee
<span class="rfc2119">MAY</span> <a href="acreview.html#ACAppeal">appeal</a>.
Once approved, a Memorandum of Understanding <span class=
"rfc2119">SHOULD</span> be made public.</p>
