I've been reviewing the IPR Exclusion Notices filed on ballot 182:

It seems that people have made claims which purport to cover the
following methods in section

2, 3, 4: Symantec:
7: GoDaddy
9: GlobalSign

However, ballot 182 contained the text for the following methods not
included in ballot 181: 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9.

This suggests that methods 1 ("Validating the Applicant as a Domain
Contact") and 8 ("IP Address") may be IP-unencumbered, and perhaps we
should have a ballot to include them?
