Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

Explanatory comment intended simply to help the understanding of the complex legally binding licensing information:

In brief and somewhat simplified the licensing information below means that anyone may use necessary claims of patents issued on the application referred to above or on a corresponding application, without compensation to Ericsson, for fully implementing a standards track or experimental document adopted by IETF and including the technology of the draft, provided that they or their Affiliates don´t attack any Ericsson company or product with any patent.

Licensing information:

If the technology in the draft is included in a standards track or experimental document adopted by the IETF, and any claim of any patent issued on the above mentioned patent application or corresponding patent applications is necessary infringed by any product fully implementing the adopted standards track or experimental document, Telefonaktiebolaget LM Ericsson, “LME”, will not assert any such claim against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product fully implementing the standards track or experimental document, provided, however that LME retains the right to assert its patent(s) issued on the above mentioned application or corresponding patent applications (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against LME or any of its Affiliates or Successors in title or against any products of LME or any products of any of LMEs Affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and LME retains the right to assert its patents or application(s) against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the IETF standards track or experimental document.

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

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.
