The IOF is becoming a legal entity under the Open Application Group (OAGi) standard consortium. The purpose of this is to protect IOF content users from intellectual property risk and eventually making IOF a sustaining organization with supporting resources. There is no fee for IOF membership at this time, but all IOF participants need to formally join IOF and accept the IP Policy. Therefore, please work with your organizational representative to fill out the membership forms in order to join IOF and IOF WG and access to other IOF resources.
