Re: FW: PatCom Report

Jim -

Not at all clear what the first line of the proposed Letter of Assurance - 
"We hereby agree that (company) will provide licenses under our (country) 
patents and/or patent applications which meet the following description ( 
optional company text ) with respect to the proposed IEEE Pnnn standard and 
subsequent revisions thereof." intends. In particular, what does the which 
in "which meet the following description ( optional company text )...." 
refer to, and what is an example of what might go between the 
braces?  Seems like there is something missing from this sentence.
