Mozilla Corporation is committed to open and royalty-free licensing of its patents for open standards and open-source software. In connection with the work and deliverables for the IETF’s NETVC Working Group Mozilla agrees to license its patents as follows:

1. License Terms.

1.1. Patent License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this License, each Licensor, on behalf of itself and successors in interest and assigns, grants Licensee a non-sublicensable, perpetual, worldwide, non-exclusive, no-charge, royalty-free, irrevocable (except as expressly stated in this License) patent license to its Necessary Claims to make, use, sell, offer for sale, import or distribute any Implementation.

1.2. Conditions.

1.2.1. Availability. As a condition to the grant of rights to Licensee to make, sell, offer for sale, import or distribute an Implementation under Section 1.1, Licensee must make its Necessary Claims available under this License, and must reproduce this License with any Implementation as follows:
a. For distribution in source code, by including this License in the root directory of the source code with its Implementation.
b. For distribution in any other form (including binary, object form, and/or hardware description code (e.g., HDL, RTL, Gate Level Netlist, GDSII, etc.)), by including this License in the documentation, legal notices, and/or other written materials provided with the Implementation.

1.2.2. Additional Conditions. This license is directly from Licensor to Licensee. Licensee acknowledges as a condition of benefiting from it that no rights from Licensor are received from suppliers, distributors, or otherwise in connection with this License.

1.3. Defensive Termination. If any Licensee, its Affiliates, or its agents initiates patent litigation or files, maintains, or voluntarily participates in a lawsuit against another entity or any person asserting that any Implementation infringes Necessary Claims, any patent licenses granted under this License directly to the Licensee are immediately terminated as of the date of the initiation of action unless 1) that suit was in response to a corresponding suit regarding an Implementation first brought against an initiating entity, or 2) that suit was brought to enforce the terms of this License (including intervention in a third-party action by a Licensee).

1.4. Disclaimers. The Reference Implementation and Specification are provided “AS IS” and without warranty. The entire risk as to implementing or otherwise using the Reference Implementation or Specification is assumed by the implementer and user. Licensor expressly disclaims any warranties (express, implied, or otherwise), including implied warranties of merchantability, non-infringement, fitness for a particular purpose, or title, related to the material. IN NO EVENT WILL LICENSOR BE LIABLE TO ANY OTHER PARTY FOR LOST PROFITS OR ANY FORM OF INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY CHARACTER FROM ANY CAUSES OF ACTION OF ANY KIND WITH RESPECT TO THIS LICENSE, WHETHER BASED ON BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR NOT THE OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE.
