'VI'. Licensing Declaration

The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only):

See Text Below for Licensing Declaration
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

This is to advise the IETF, in accordance with the IETF RFCs 3979 and 4879 that Nokia Siemens Networks Oy believes the Nokia Siemens Networks patent application “Charging for an IP based communication system” (US/10/524,055) (the “Disclosed Patents”), may be required to implement the following IETF contribution “Diameter Credit-Control Application” (RFC 4006) (the “Contribution”).

Subject to reciprocity and to the extent that the Contribution is incorprorated in an IETF RFC, Nokia Siemens Networks informs that Nokia Siemens Networks covenants on its behalf not to assert, against any person, 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 “Covenant”). In this context, “necessarily infringed” means that such claims are technically necessary to implement the IETF RFC in question.

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.
