This document clarifies and updates a single sentence in RFC
3979.  Specifically, when third party Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) 
disclosures are made, the intention is that the IETF Executive Director 
notify the IPR holder that a third party disclosure has been filed, and 
to ask the IPR holder whether they have any disclosure that needs to be 
made, per applicable RFC 3979 rules.  This document specifies an 
Internet Best Current Practices for the Internet Community, and requests 
discussion and suggestions for improvements.

This document is a product of the Intellectual Property Rights
