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