Cisco's Statement about IPR claimed in draft-ietf-pwe3-vccv-13.txt
Date: 6 March 2007 
From: Rachel Albright

Cisco is the owner of US published patent application 20060126495 and 
one or more pending unpublished patent applications relating to the subject 
matter of "Pseudo Wire Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV)" 

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.
