Statement regarding IPR

We issue the following public statement to clarify that ETSI does not take any position regarding the correct interpretation of its IPR policy and its IPR Guide:

The ETSI IPR Policy and the IPR Guide texts stand as independent documents in their own right.

It is reiterated that specific licensing terms and negotiations are commercial matters between the companies and shall not be addressed within ETSI. The basic principle of the ETSI IPR regime remains FRAND with no specific preference for any licensing model.
