Cisco's Statement about IPR claimed in RFC 4561
Date: 16 January 2007 
From: Rachel Albright

Cisco is the owner of one or more pending unpublished patent applications 
relating to the subject matter of Request for Comments (RFC) 4561 "Definition 
of a Record Route Object (RRO) Node-Id Sub-Object."

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 or against any products of Cisco or any products of any of 
Cisco's affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; 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.
