Title: Cisco's Statement about IPR claimed in draft-ietf-ips-iscsi-mib-10.txt
Date:  7 July 2005 
From: Dan Lang

Cisco is the owner of one or more pending unpublished patent applications relating to the 
subject matter of "Definitions of Managed Objects for iSCSI" .

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.
