Submitter: Rachel Albright
Cisco is the owner of US Published Patent Application 20100061269 relating to the subject matter of
"Multi Topology Routing Extensions for Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL)"
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 standard.
Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option.
