Title: Cisco's Statement of IPR relating to draft-ietf-l3vpn-2547bis-mcast-10
Date: February 10, 2010
From: Rachel Albright

Cisco is the owner of US Patent Nos. 6,078,590 and 6,611,528 relating to the subject matter of 
"Multicast in MPLS/BGP IP VPNs" .

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any Cisco
patents are necessary for practicing the standard, any party will have the right to use any such patent 
claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and fully comply with 
the standard.

The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If this standard is adopted, Cisco will not assert any patents owned or controlled by Cisco against any 
party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, 
provided, however that Cisco retains the right to assert its patents (including the right to claim past royalties) 
against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Cisco or 
any of Cisco's affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Cisco or any products of any 
of Cisco's affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Cisco retains the right to 
assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the 

Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option.
