VI. Licensing Declaration:
To the extent that the reference in IV., supra, is incorporated in an IETF RFC, 
Research in Motion informs that it and its Affiliates will make a license 
available on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory ("FRAND") terms and 
conditions based on reciprocity to all persons desiring to implement such IETF 
RFC for those claims of the Disclosed Patents only that would, in the absence of 
a license, be necessarily infringed by the use of a right (e.g. making, using, 
selling, importing, distribution, copying, etc) with respect to a technology 
implementing such IETF RFC (the "License").  In this context, "necessarily 
infringed" means that such claims are technically necessary to implement the 
IETF RFC in question.

"Affiliate" of Research in Motion means any legal entity that is for the time 
being directly or indirectly controlled by Research in Motion Limited.  Control 
in this context, exists where one entity owns more than fifty percent (50%) of 
the voting stock or equity in another entity, or regardless of stock or equity 
ownership, is otherwise able to direct its affairs or to appoint a majority of 
the members of the board of directors or an equivalent body to determine the 
course of action of the entity by virtue of its voting or other rights. Such 
entities shall only be deemed to be Affiliates, hereunder for as long as such 
control exists.
