In addition, for the hmipv6 submission, if said submission is included in an IETF 
standard and Ericsson has patents that are essential to the implementation of such 
included submission in said standard, Ericsson is prepared to grant - on the basis
of reciprocity -a paid up, nonexclusive, royalty free license on such patents for
the purpose of implementing said standard, if and only if practiced under any 
software distributed under the present terms of the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC LICENSE 
(http://www.fsf.org/copyleft/gpl.html) or practiced under any operating system 
software in which all major components of the operating system - including the

under the terms of a license that conforms to the present OPEN SOURCE DEFINITION 
(http://www.opensource.org/osd.html). 

For software not distributed under the present terms of the GNU GENERAL PUBLIC 
LICENSE http://www.fsf.org/copyleft/gpl.html) or distributed under the terms of a 
license that does not conform to the present OPEN SOURCE DEFINITION (http://www.opensource.org/osd.html), Ericsson's general patent license statement as referred to above, shall apply.
