I am planning to use Haar-Filter Face Detection method used in IPP product of Intel. However, I saw a patent US 7099510. It says Haar-filters are patented algorithm.

Would you please tell us what happens if we buy the Face Detection implemented in Intel IPP? Will we have to pay patent rights to Viola-jones, who has registered the patent or will we have to pay extra charge to Intel?
