The IETF policies about Intellectual Property Rights (IPR), such as
patent rights, relative to technologies developed in the IETF are
designed to ensure that IETF working groups and participants have as
much information about any IPR constraints on a technical proposal as
possible. The policies are also intended to benefit the Internet
community and the public at large, while respecting the legitimate
rights of IPR holders. This memo details the IETF policies concerning
IPR related to technology worked on within the IETF. It also
describes the objectives that the policies are designed to meet. This
memo updates RFC 2026 and, with RFC 3667, replaces Section 10 of RFC
2026. This memo also updates paragraph 4 of Section 3.2 of RFC 2028,
for all purposes, including reference  in RFC 2418.
This document is a product of the Intellectual Property Rights Working
Group of the IETF.
This document specifies an Internet Best Current Practices for the
Internet Community, and requests discussion and suggestions for
improvements. Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
