Title: Cisco's Statement About IPR Claimed in draft-bryant-shand-lf-conv-frmwk-00.txt
Received: 27 January, 2005
From: Robert Barr 

Cisco is the owner of US published patent application 20040117251 and one or
more unpublished pending patent applications relating to the subject matter
of "A Framework for Loop-free Convergence"
 . 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; 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
