If the technology in RFC5053 "Raptor Forward Error Correction Scheme for Object Delivery" is included in a standards track or experimental document adopted by the IETF, and any claim of any patent issued from the above mentioned patents, patent applications or corresponding patents and patent applications is required for the implementation of any device that (a) fully implements such adopted standards track or experimental document; and (b) implements a wireless wide-area standard (for example, a UMTS-compatible handset or Infrastructure equipment), Qualcomm will offer licenses to such claim as part of its established licensing terms and conditions for such products, without charging any additional incremental royalty rate above Qualcomm's standard royalty rate for use of its patents in such products implementing such wireless wide-area standard.
If the technology in RFC5053 "Raptor Forward Error Correction Scheme for Object Delivery" is included in a standards track or experimental document adopted by the IETF, and any claim of any patent issued from the above mentioned patents, patent applications or corresponding patents and patent applications is required for the implementation of any device that (a) fully implements such adopted standards track or experimental document; and (b) does not implement any wireless wide-area standard, Qualcomm will not assert any such claim against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale such product but solely with respect to the implementation of such adopted standards track or experimental document, provided, however that Qualcomm retains the right to assert its patent(s) issued on the above mentioned application or corresponding patent applications (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against any products of Qualcomm or any products of any of Qualcomm's Affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Qualcomm retains the right to assert its patents or application(s) against any product or portion thereof that does not fully implement the IETF standards track or experimental document.
