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

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF
and any claims of any Arista patents 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, Arista will not assert any patents owned or
controlled by Arista against any party for making, using, selling, importing
or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, provided,
however that Arista retains the right to assert its patents (including the
right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it
owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Arista or any of
Arista's affiliates or successors in title or against any products of Arista
or any products of any of Arista's affiliates either alone or in combination
with other products; and Arista retains the right to assert its patents
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

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.
