The text of the original IPR declaration:

Title: Broadcom's Statement about IPR claimed in draft-ietf-rddp-mpa-01
Received: 2 September 2004
From: Shannon Tyson 

This declaration is being made pursuant to the provisions of IETF IPR
Policy, RFC 3668, Section 6.

This is to advise the IETF that Broadcom believes it has published and
unpublished pending patent application(s) that may relate to the
following Internet Draft document:


To the extent that the technology discussed in this Internet Draft
becomes an IETF Standard, Broadcom shall, upon written request, offer a
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.

Potentially relevant published patent applications include the

U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 10/230,643, entitled "System and
Method For Identifying Upper Layer Protocol Message Boundaries"

U.S. Patent Application Serial No. 10/751,732, entitled "System and
Method For Handling Transport Protocol Segments"

Written requests for licenses may be sent to:

H. Shannon Tyson, Jr.
