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.
