Title: Cisco System's Statement of IPR relating to RFC 4864
Date: February 5, 2010
Submitter: Rachel Albright


Cisco is the owner of US Patent No. 7,539,202 and US Published Patent Application 20090285216 relating to
the subject matter of Request for Comments (RFC) 4864 "Local Network Protection for IPv6".

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.
