Notwithstanding the foregoing, Verizon reserves the right to assert any of its patents (including claims for past damages and equitable remedies) against any party that asserts a patent (either directly or indirectly through affiliated entities) against Verizon or any of its affiliated companies or against any products or services of Verizon or any of its affiliated companies, including products procured by Verizon or its affiliated companies from third parties, either alone or in combination with other products or services.
