Agree with others; splitting it up into two simpler sentences is an
A tweak, though (you lost something in the second sentence):
Anything that you write, say, or discuss in the IETF, formally or informally,
either at an IETF meeting, or in another IETF venue, such as a mailing
list, is an IETF contribution. If any contribution of yours is covered by
a patent or patent application made by you or your employer, you or they
must disclose that.
The original allowed the employer to make the disclosure (since, after all,
the employee may not know of all patent filings), and also had a positive
requirement to make such a disclosure; this revised one brings all that back.
