The text of the original IPR declaration:

Title: Apple Computer's Statement About IPR Claimed in draft-ietf-zeroconf-ipv4-linklocal
Received: April 26, 2004
From: Richard J. Lutton, Jr.

Apple Computer, Inc. ("Apple") believes that its U.S. Patent Numbers 4,661,902 
and 4,689,786 (the "Patents") may be necessary for an implementation of material 
contained in draft-ietf-zeroconf-ipv4-linklocal-13.txt (the "Document").

In the event that the technology discussed in the Document becomes an IETF 
standard (the "Standard") which is not materially different from the Document, 
Apple agrees, upon written request from a Party to negotiate outside of IETF 
to make available a non-exclusive license under reasonable and non-discriminatory 
("RAND") terms and conditions under such claims of the Patents that are essential 
to implement a product compliant with the Standard (a "Compliant Product").  
These RAND terms and conditions may be conditional upon a reciprocal grant or 
defense use.

Any questions regarding this communication should be directed to:
