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

IDAC Holdings, Inc. (“IDAC”) has potential intellectual property rights in
one or more published and/or unpublished patent applications, as indicated in
Section V herein. IDAC believes that these potential intellectual property
rights may pertain to at least a portion of the subject matter of the IETF
document indicated in Section IV herein. To the extent that any claim(s) of
any patent issued on the published and/or unpublished applications would
necessarily be infringed when implementing an IETF specification or standard
in which all or part of the document is included, IDAC hereby declares that it
will make available a license to such claim(s) on reasonable, reciprocal and
nondiscriminatory terms and conditions to any implementer of such IETF
specification or standard for making, using, selling or offering for sale
products or services solely to the extent necessary to implement such IETF
specification or standard.

Reciprocal means that a potential licensee, holding intellectual property rights
that would necessarily be infringed by implementing any IETF specification
or standard, agrees to make available to IDAC and/or its affiliates a license on
reasonable and nondiscriminatory terms and conditions for making, using,
selling or offering for sale products or services at least to the extent necessary
to implement such IETF specification or standard.

This disclosure and declaration is not intended to act as a claim of right or
assertion of infringement by IDAC and/or its affiliates. IDAC does not
warrant the accuracy or completeness of the information contained in Section
V and accepts no liability for any damage or loss resulting from reliance on
that information or this disclosure and declaration. IDAC encourages
interested parties to make their own independent evaluation of the relevance
