Title: Cisco's Statement about IPR claimed in draft-thubert-tree-discovery-03.txt
Received: 26 May 2006
From: Dan Lang 

Cisco is the owner of US published patent application 20040032852 and US published 
patent application 20040081152 relating to the subject matter of "Nested Nemo Tree 
Discovery" . 

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.
