In brief and somewhat simplified the lengthy legally binding language quoted below means that anyone may use covering claims of patents issued on the application referred to above, or corresponding applications, without compensation to Ericsson for fully implementing a standards track or experimental document adopted by IETF, including open source software implementation, as long as they dont attack any Ericsson company or product with any patent.
"If the technology in the draft is included in a standards track or experimental document adopted by IETF, and any claim of any patent issued on the above mentioned patent application or corresponding patent applications would necessarily be infringed by any product fully implementing the adopted standards track or experimental document, LME will not assert any such claim against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product fully implementing the standards track or experimental document, provided, however that LME retains the right to assert its patent(s) issued on the above mentioned application or corresponding patent applications (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly) against LME or any of its Affiliates or Successors in title or against any products of LME or any products of any of LMEs Affiliates either alone or in combination with other products;
and LME retains the right to assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the IETF standards track or experimental document.
FRAND royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option."
