Re: DEPLOY: Microsoft's Statement about IPR Claimed in <draft-ietf-marid-core-03.txt> and <draft-ietf-marid-pra-00.txt> in Combination




This implies that patent rights may exist only if the two documents are used
in combination. Would you comment on if the same IPR disclosure would still
be valid if any of the documents (i.e. ietf-marid-core and ietf-marid-pra)
are used and considered by this or any other IETF WG separately?
