Title: Corporation for National Research Initiatives's Statement About IPR Claimed in RFC 3650, RFC 3651, and RFC 3652 Received: 8 January 2004 From: Robert Kahn In accordance with Section 10 of RFC 2026, the Corporation for National Research Initiatives ("CNRI") wishes to make the following statement: The Handle System® technology described in the three Informational RFCs published as 3650, 3651, and 3652 is a component of the Digital Object Architecture developed by CNRI. This technology provides a means for uniquely identifying Digital Objects ("DOs") and other network resources, and for using identifiers, sometimes known as handles, to store and retrieve records containing state information about the DOs. In addition to this resolution capability, it provides an administrative mechanism for managing identifiers over time. While CNRI has one issued patent and is seeking additional patent protection on the Handle System technology, it is the intention of CNRI to make this technology available in the public interest. This will be done in such a way as to maintain the overall integrity of the Handle System and to provide for its continuing operation and growth. Specifically, to the extent that the Handle System technology is included in the Internet, or incorporated in IETF standards implementing this technology, CNRI agrees to grant, upon written request, permission to implement, use, and distribute the technology under openly specified, reasonable, and non-discriminatory terms.
