In connection with draft-bader-nsis-rmd-diffserv-qsm-00.txt Internet
Draft I am sending the following IPR Statement:

IPR Statement about RMD

I hereby give the following IPR Disclosure in relation to the RMD
concept proposed by Ericsson and currently under discussion in IEFT
WG NSIS:

To the best of my knowledge there are no Ericsson patents or filed
patent applications on RMD protocol operation or basic principles.
To my knowledge there is only one Ericsson patent application family
that could possibly be relevant merely to particular implementation of
RMD. This patent family comprises US patent 6687655 and counterparts
in other countries.

To the best of my knowledge there is only one Ericsson owned invention
without any patent applications filed yet that could possibly be relevant
to particular implementation of RMD, but this invention is not relevant
to RMD protocol operation or basic principles.

I have been authorized by Ericsson to give the following Licensing
Declaration in relation to the RMD concept proposed by Ericsson and
discussed in IEFT WG NSIS:

In case a license to a patent in the patent family above or a patent
issued/granted on an application for patent on the invention above should
be necessary for implementing any Internet Standard, Ericsson is willing
to grant to anybody a license to such patent on fair, reasonable and
non-discriminatory conditions for the implementation of the standard,
subject to reciprocity.
