The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If this standard is adopted, Nicira Networks will not assert any patents owned or controlled by Nicira against any party for making, using, selling, importing, or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, provided, however, that Nicira 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 Nicira or any of Nicira's affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Nicira or any products of any of Nicira's affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Nicira 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.

The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that all terms and conditions that must be satisfied for implementers of any covered IETF specification to obtain a license have been disclosed in this IPR disclosure statement.
