The IETF has developed and documented policies that govern the
behavior of all IETF participants with respect to Intellectual
Property Rights (IPR) about which they might reasonably be aware.

The IETF takes conformance to these IPR policies very seriously.
However, there has been some ambiguity as to what the appropriate
sanctions are for the violation of these policies, and how and by
whom those sanctions are to be applied.

This document discusses these issues and provides a suite of
potential actions that can be taken within the IETF community in
cases related to patents.  This document is not an Internet Standards 
Track specification; it is published for informational purposes.
