This is good, as this is more specific.Benoit, There is a more recent and specific IP statement from AT&T that will be referred to in the next version of the framework draft: http://www.ietf.org/ietf/IPR/att-ipr-draft-ietf-psamp-framework.txt
However, shouldn't you mention to which hashing/filtering/sampling technique(s) your IPR refers.
Very good.Concerning other assertions of IP rights, I was referring to the following psamp specific statement from Cisco, which will also be referred to in the next version: http://www.ietf.org/ietf/IPR/cisco-ipr-draft-ietf-psamp-protocol.txt

I started to investigate and this leads me to this question. The IPR statement is pretty vague, specifically if I follow the link 10. Intellectual Property Statement AT&T Corporation may own intellectual property applicable to this contribution. The IETF has been notified of AT&T's licensing intent for the specification contained in this document. See http://www.ietf.org/ietf/IPR/ATT-GENERAL.txt for AT&T's IPR statement. Should we specify exactly which method(s) AT&T has got a patent for?Andwhat is the patent number? For example, the NetFlow IPR is pretty unambiguous. http://www.ietf.org/ietf/IPR/cisco-claise-netflow.txt Thanks for shedding some light.
