Cisco is the owner of US Patent No. 8,121,032 relating to the subject matter of "Seamless MPLS Architecture" <draft-ietf-mpls-seamless-mpls-04>.

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. Cisco retains the right to assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with the standard.

To maintain reciprocity, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, Cisco retains the right to assert its patents (including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a claim of a patent it owns or controls (either directly or indirectly), where such claim is necessary for practicing the standard, 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, where such assertion by such party is directed against implementation of the standard.
