See Text Below for Licensing Declaration
Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information:

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and
any claims of any Cisco patents are necessary for practicing the standard,
any party will have the right to use any such patent claims under
reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and
fully comply with the standard.

The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If this standard is adopted, Cisco will not assert any patents owned or
controlled by Cisco against any party for making, using, selling, importing
or offering for sale a product that implements the standard, provided,
however that Cisco retains the right to assert its patents (including the
right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it
owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against Cisco or any of
Cisco's affiliates or successors in title; and Cisco retains the right to
assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not
necessary for compliance with the standard.

Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that
option.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
