The Patent Holder states that its position with respect to licensing any patent claims contained in the patent(s) or patent application(s) disclosed above that would necessarily be infringed by implementation of the technology required by the relevant IETF specification ("Necessary Patent Claims"), for the purpose of implementing such specification, is as follows(select one licensing declaration option only): See text box below for licensing declaration. Licensing information, comments, notes or URL for further information: This letter sets forth Tecsec's patent licensing policy regarding any IETF Standard. Tecsec, in accordance with RFC 2026 and its own general licensing policy, is prepared to license its IPR on reasonable, non-exclusive, non-discriminatory terms and conditions. In particular, Tecsec is willing to negotiate nonexclusive, worldwide licenses under its IPR to allow the manufacture, use, sale, offer for sale and importation of the portions of any product that implement and are compliant with all relevant portions of the standard; provided that these licenses may not extend to any part or function of a product that is not required to implement or comply with the standard. In given circumstances, Tecsec's license grant may be conditioned upon the licensee's grant of a reciprocal license under the licensee's IPR and IPR owned by parties with which licensee is affiliated. In assessing reasonable royalty rates, Tecsec may refer to the royalty rates that a potential licensee has set for its own IPR and IPR of parties with which it may be affiliated. Tecsec also reserves the right to grant licenses to its IPR as part of a cross-license with any other party.
