Cisco's Statement about IPR claimed in draft-rosenberg-sip-outbound-discovery-mid-dialog-00
Date: 20 December 2006 
From: Rachel Albright

Cisco is the owner of one or more pending unpublished patent applications relating 
to the subject matter of "Discovering Outbound Proxies and Providing High Availability 
with Client Initiated Connections in the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP)" 
.

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.
