non-exclusive license on reasonable and non-discriminatory terms (which
may include defensive suspension rights) for only such portion of any
product which is fully compliant with said IETF Standard, under any
issued patent claims owned by Broadcom which would necessarily be
infringed by a product solely because it is fully compliant with the
IETF standard. Broadcom's willingness to grant such licenses is
conditioned upon the prospective licensee granting a reciprocal license
to Broadcom.
