If any claim(s) of a patent owned or controlled by Marvell are necessary to practice the standard that is adopted by the IETF, with respect to which this declaration is submitted, then Marvell, on its own behalf and on behalf of its affiliates, commits that it will not assert such patent claim(s) against any party for making, using, selling, offering for sale or importing a product that implements that part of the IETF standard which is covered by such patent claim(s), subject to reciprocity by such party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Marvell retains the right to: (i) assert its patent(s) against any product(s), or part of a product, that does not implement a part of the IETF standard which is covered by the patent(s); (ii) assert its patent(s) against any party with respect to any of its past, present and/or future activities (including, but not limited to, making a demand for royalties), where such party directly or indirectly asserts patent(s) that it owns or controls against Marvell, its affiliates, or successors in right or against any product(s) of Marvell, its affiliates, or successors in right.
Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to any who prefers that option.
