VIII. Other Notes

Additional notes

The Patent Holder thinks PCT/SE2009/050627 as filed and as published does not cover draft-ietf-mpls-tp-fault-03 or later revisions thereot up to 07.
Presently the Patent Holder thinks it is very arguable if it is possible that any patent based on PCT/SE2009/050627 might ultimately cover any RFC or later document along the IETF standards track based on draft-ietf-mpls-tp-fault-07. Still, this IPR disclosure is made now to clarify what was meant with "option b" in the original disclosure and to safeguard transparency and availability of RF licenses to such patent according to option b) in the IETF License Declartion Template, to all implementers in case an RFC or later document along the IETF standards track, based on draft-ietf-mpls-tp-fault-03 or later versions up to 07, would be covered by a patent based on PCT/SE2009/050627.
