In the IPR discussion a specific problem that was raised
was the generality of the defensive clause. As you may
remember, the statement was formulated such that from
Ericsson point of view anyone can use this technology
for free. But only as long as the user do not sue Ericsson
for some of his own patents (on any field).
I plan to ask if our IPR department could agree on
changing this such that it only applies to IETF technology.
Based on a private discussion with Jim, this removes
at least his concern.
If there were other IPR related concerns, let me
know so that I can let our IPR department know.
I plan to talk to them later this week. In
particular, input from the various groups that
are working with Shim6 implementations for
open source would be valuable, if they have
issues that prevent implementation.
