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):

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

If any claim or claims of any Tekelec patents and/or patent applications are necessary for practicing any of the listed IETF publications, and such publications or part thereof are adopted as an IETF Standard, any party desiring to implement the Standard will have the non-exclusive right to use such patent claim or claims, that in the absence of a license would necessarily be infringed, under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and fully comply with the Standard. In this context, "necessarily be infringed" means that such claim or claims are technically necessary to implement the IETF Standard at issue, and "reciprocity" means that Tekelec will commit to the above outlined licensing terms if the prospective licensee also commits to license its necessary patent(s) and/or patent applications under the same terms for the implementation of the IETF Standard. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Tekelec reserves the right to assert its patents against any use or product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the IETF Standard. Tekelec does not warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in this disclosure and accepts no liability for any damage or loss resulting from reliance on information in this disclosure. Tekelec encourages parties to make their own independent evaluation of the relevance of any of Tekelec's intellectual property rights. Also, notwithstanding the foregoing, Tekelec reserves the right to assert its patents (including the right to claim past damages) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Tekelec or any of Tekelec’s affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Tekelec or any products of any of Tekelec’s affiliates either alone or in combination with other products, and any license granted hereunder shall be null and void with respect to such party.

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.
