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

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claim of any patent issued on the above mentioned patent applications (as specified) are necessary for practicing the standard, any party will have the right to use any such patent claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and fully comply with the standard.
The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are: If this standard is adopted, Ericsson will not assert the specific patent against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, provided, however that Ericsson retains the right to assert the patent (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Ericsson or any of Ericsson's affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Ericsson or any products of any of Ericsson's affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Ericsson retains the right to assert the patent 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.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
