Leonard, also, the entire ³partners.adobe.com² site seems to have disappeared, to be replaced by ³www.adobe.io². Unfortunately, this has broken the links to the official TIFF tag and codec registration pages at:

        http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/tiff/register/tag_reg.do
        http://partners.adobe.com/public/developer/tiff/register/comp_reg.do

along with many other items I¹m sure. Can you tell us where they have been moved to?

I see. I also notice that "TIFF" has never been a registered trademark of Aldus or Adobe (or Microsoft) so Adobe never registered it in the country where they are headquartered. Aldus and Microsoft do not appear to have claimed a trademark in 1988. What modifications should users and supporters of the format make to their behavior in order to continue using "TIFF" as they were before?

Would it be possible for Adobe to issue a new edition of the TIFF specification which updates the URLs and email contact information to valid addresses, as well as includes Chris Cox's draft additions?
