Notice of intent to grant exclusive copyright license.
Notice is hereby given of an intent to grant to Business Commerce Solutions of Gaithersburg, Maryland an exclusive license in the U.S. copyright in the EC-WEB EC/EDI Gateway small purchase software, as well as the right to register the copyright in foreign countries. A Notice to the effect that the computer software was available for license appeared in the February 7, 2000 issue of the Federal Register [65 FR 5859].

Based on these responses, Business Commerce Solutions was chosen as the exclusive licensee. The copyright will be held by the United States of America, as represented by the Department of Energy (DOE). DOE intends to grant the license, unless within 15 days of this notice the Assistant General Counsel for Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property, Department of Energy, Washington, DC 20585, receives in writing a statement from any person setting forth a reason or reasons why it would not be in the best interests of the United States to grant the proposed license, together with supporting documents.
