IV. Statement


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):

See text box below for licensing declaration.

Licensing information, comments, notes or URL for further information:

Crossroads may have patents or patent applications that cover or
potentially cover technology a Crossroads employee contributes for
use in an IETF standard, including the iSCSI protocol under
development in the IP Storage (ips) working group. In the event
a specific IETF standard cannot be practiced without the use of
an issued Crossroads patent or patents, Crossroads agrees, upon
written request, to negotiate a limited nonexclusive license to
practices the patent(s) for the sole purpose of implementing that
IETF standard, and no others, in products that are fully compliant
with that IETF standard.

Crossroads will offer such a license on a nondiscriminatory
basis and on reasonable terms and conditions. Crossroads
cannot represent that the terms and conditions will be identical
for all products and for all companies. Furthermore, the
potential licensee must be prepared to offer Crossroads a
comparable cross-license to any of the potential licensee's
patents that apply or could potentially apply to Crossroads'
products. Such licensing negotiations will be held with the
parties concerned and will be conducted outside IETF.
