VI. Licensing Declaration
The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only):
See Text Below for Licensing Declaration.
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information:

To the extent that the reference in IV., supra, is incorporated in an IETF RFC,
Research in Motion informs that it and its Affiliates will make a license
available on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory ("FRAND") terms and
conditions based on reciprocity to all persons desiring to implement such IETF
RFC for those claims of the Disclosed Patents only that would, in the absence of
a license, be necessarily infringed by the use of a right (e.g. making, using,
selling, importing, distribution, copying, etc) with respect to a technology
implementing such IETF RFC (the "License"). In this context, "necessarily
infringed" means that such claims are technically necessary to implement the
IETF RFC in question.

"Affiliate" of Research in Motion means any legal entity that is for the time
being directly or indirectly controlled by Research in Motion Limited. Control
in this context, exists where one entity owns more than fifty percent (50%) of
the voting stock or equity in another entity, or regardless of stock or equity
ownership, is otherwise able to direct its affairs or to appoint a majority of
the members of the board of directors or an equivalent body to determine the
course of action of the entity by virtue of its voting or other rights. Such
entities shall only be deemed to be Affiliates, hereunder for as long as such
control exists.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
