2.    Grant Of Licenses and Rights

2.1.  Licenses

      2.1.1 License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement,
            Netscape hereby grants and Oracle hereby accepts, a nonexclusive and
            nontransferable worldwide right and license to (i) reproduce,
            without change, the Netscape Products (in executable form only) on
            any tangible media with a right to sublicense this right to
            reproduce to Subsidiaries and/or Distributors and (ii) distribute by
            sublicense such Netscape Product copies to Subsidiaries and/or
            Distributors and/or End Users only in conjunction with an Oracle
            Product. Oracle is expressly prohibited from any marketing and/or
            distribution of Netscape Products unless each copy is bundled with
            an Oracle Product. Oracle may grant Distributors the rights under
            this Subsection 2.1.1 to other Distributors regardless of tier and
            Oracle and all Distributors shall have the right to distribute the
            Netscape Products to End Users. Oracle may grant End Users the right
            to copy the Netscape Product bundled with any Oracle Product except
            for the Oracle Network Computer so long as such End User also
            receives the right to copy for the Oracle Product. Each copy of the
            Netscape Product (i) distributed hereunder to an End User or (ii)
            which an End User with a right to copy has the right to make
            hereunder shall be deemed a "shipment" of an Oracle Product with the
            Netscape Product under Section 4.1.1. In addition, Netscape grants
            Oracle a royalty free license to use 100 copies of Netscape
            Navigator LAN (object code) solely for internet development purposes
            and not for redistribution. At Oracle's written request for
            electronic distribution rights under this Agreement, Netscape agrees
            not to unreasonably withhold permission therefor.

      2.1.2 License Restrictions. Subject to Sections 14.11 and 14.12, Oracle
            agrees not to copy (except as expressly permitted herein), modify,
            translate, decompile, reverse engineer, disassemble, or otherwise
            determine or attempt to determine source code for the executable
            code of the Netscape Products or to create any Derivative Works
            based upon the Netscape Products or Documentation, and agrees not to
            permit or authorize anyone else to do so; provided, however, that if
            Oracle's address set forth above is located within a Member State of
            the European Union, then such activities shall be permitted solely
            to the extent, if any, permitted by Article 6 of the Council
            Directive of 14 May 1991 on the legal protection of computer
            programs, and implementing legislation thereunder.

      2.1.3 Documentation License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this
            Agreement, Netscape hereby grants and Oracle hereby accepts a
            nonexclusive and nontransferable worldwide right and license, in
            accordance with Subsection 2.1.1 above, to use and reproduce the
            Documentation, and to distribute the Documentation solely in
            conjunction with the Netscape Products. Such distribution may be to
            Distributors and End Users.

      2.1.4 Licenses Dependent on Bundling. The licenses granted in Section
            2.1.1 are conditional upon bundling each Netscape Product as
            required therein. If Oracle fails to so bundle the Netscape
            Products, and licenses a Netscape Product on a "stand-alone" basis,
            the licenses shall be immediately revocable by Netscape in addition
            to any other remedies Netscape may have.

      2.1.5 Third Party License. If all or any part of the Netscape Products or
            Updates delivered to Oracle has been licensed to Netscape by a third
            party software supplier then, notwithstanding anything to the
            contrary contained in this


                                       3


            Agreement, Oracle is granted a sublicense to the third party
            software subject to the same terms and conditions as those contained
            in the agreement between Netscape and such third party software
            supplier. In addition, Netscape reserves the right to substitute any
            third party software in the Netscape Products so long as the new
            third party software does not materially affect the functionality of
            the Netscape Products. Netscape represents that the current release
            of the Netscape Products contains no third party software which
            would require Oracle to agree to any terms and conditions in
            addition to those set forth in this Agreement.

      2.1.6 Trial Licenses for Evaluation. During the term of this Agreement,
            Oracle and/or its Distributors and/or Subsidiaries may distribute,
            up to a maximum combined total of fifty (50) licenses pursuant to
            Sections 2.1.1 and 2.1.3 solely for purposes of evaluation at no
            license fee ("Trial Licenses"). Each Trial License shall not exceed
            a period of sixty (60) consecutive days per customer from the date
            of delivery of the Netscape Product to such customer. A customer may
            be a prospective End User or Distributor. Oracle shall pay Netscape
            the applicable license fees for any Trial Licenses in excess of
            sixty (60) days. Each such Trial License shall be sublicensed under
            an End User License Agreement which provides for such trial use.

2.2   Export

      Oracle shall and shall require its Distributors to comply fully with all
then current applicable laws, rules and regulations relating to the export of
technical data, including, but not limited to any regulations of the United
States Office of Export Administration and other applicable governmental
agencies and Oracle acknowledges that by virtue of certain security technology
embedded in the Netscape Products, that export of such software may not be
legal. Oracle shall and shall require its Distributors to conspicuously mark all
packaging containing the Netscape Products identified by Netscape as not for
export with a "Not For Export" notice. Netscape agrees to cooperate in providing
information requested by Oracle as necessary to obtain any required licenses and
approvals. When distributing the Netscape Products and Documentation in
countries where an enforceable copyright law covering the same does not exist,
Oracle or its Distributors shall obtain a written agreement signed by the
customer prohibiting the customer from making unauthorized copies of the same.

      Oracle warrants that neither it nor its Distributors will grant
sublicenses in or ship any Netscape Products to a country until it (or the
Distributor) has completed all necessary government formalities in such country
and upon reasonable request by Netscape, Oracle (or its Distributor) provides
evidence of completion of such formalities to Netscape. Oracle will indemnify
Netscape for any losses, costs, liability, and damages incurred by Netscape as a
result of a failure by Oracle or its Distributors to comply with the necessary
government requirements in any country. The obligations under this Section shall
survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Upon Netscape's
reasonable request, Oracle shall make records available to Netscape to allow
Netscape to confirm Oracle's compliance with this Section.

      To the extent that Netscape discontinues licensing the Netscape Products
in certain countries and denies other resellers the right to sublicense in such
countries, Netscape may from time to time deny Oracle the right to sublicense in
such certain countries in order to protect Netscape's interests if, in the
reasonable opinion of Netscape's counsel, such countries (i) do not provide
adequate protection for Netscape's proprietary rights through copyright, trade
secret, patent, or other laws; or (ii) have laws or regulations or the
government has committed acts which in the opinion of Netscape's counsel, are
injurious to Netscape's interests in the Netscape Products.

3.    Marketing and Distribution

3.1   Nonexclusivity of Arrangement

      In consideration for the promises contained herein, beginning on the
Effective Date of this Agreement until the Renewal Date, Oracle agrees that with
respect to Oracle Preferred Products, Netscape Product (Exhibits A and B) shall
be the preferred software to be bundled with the Oracle Preferred Products in
cases where such third party non-Oracle software is bundled. For purposes of
this Agreement, the term "preferred" means that the only third party non-Oracle
software primarily designed for viewing HTML documents over standard Internet
protocols that Oracle shall bundle with the Oracle Preferred Products shall be
Netscape Product (Exhibits A and B); provided, however, that if an End User
specifically requests that a third party product with Internet browser
functionality be provided with any Oracle Preferred Product, Oracle may provide
such third party product with the Oracle Preferred Product solely for such
End-User. In addition, subject to the applicable terms and conditions of this
Agreement, Oracle shall have the right at its sole discretion to bundle Netscape
Products (Exhibits A and B) on a non-preferred basis with the Oracle
Non-Preferred Products.

      For the time period set forth above, Oracle agrees to make commercially
reasonable efforts to treat Netscape Product at least as favorably as it treats
any other third party products distributed with Oracle Preferred Products that
are competitive with the Netscape Product. Specifically, such third party
product will not be shipped by default under the or with the Oracle Preferred
Products.

3.2   Public Announcements and Promotional Materials

      Netscape and Oracle shall cooperate with each other so that each party may
issue a press release concerning this Agreement on a mutually agreed upon
release date, provided that each party must approve, in writing, such press
release prior to its release. Netscape shall cooperate with Oracle in its
development of the initial marketing and sales materials used to promote the
distribution of the Netscape Products.

3.3   Terms Relating to Distribution

      3.3.1 General Restrictions on Distribution

            Oracle agrees to comply with and shall require its Distributors to
            comply with all applicable laws, rules and regulations to preclude
            the acquisition of unlimited rights to technical data, software and
            documentation provided with the Netscape Product to a governmental
            agency, and ensure the inclusion of the appropriate "U.S. Government
            End Users" notices required by the U.S. Government agencies or other
            applicable agencies.

      3.3.2 Distributor License Agreement

            Oracle shall procure from each Distributor an executed copy of a
            distribution license ("Distributor License Agreement") sufficient to
            ensure that such Distributors are required to comply with the
            relevant terms of this Agreement.

      3.3.3 End User License Agreements

            Oracle and its Distributors shall distribute the Netscape Products
            to End Users only under the terms of, and shall ensure that the
            Netscape Products are subject to, applicable end user license
            agreements with terms at least as restrictive as


                                       5


            those set forth in the end user license agreement attached hereto as
            Exhibit C ("End User License Agreement").

      3.3.4 Third Party Requirements. In the event that Netscape is required by
            a third party software supplier to cease and to cause its licensees
            to cease reproduction and distribution of a particular revision of
            the Netscape Products, Oracle agrees to comply herewith provided
            Netscape provides Oracle with thirty (30) days prior written notice
            and further provided Netscape replaces such affected Netscape
            Product with a functionally equivalent Netscape Product as soon as
            commercially practicable, before Oracle is required to cease
            reproduction and distribution of such third party software.

3.4   Enforcement of Sublicense Agreements

      Oracle and its Distributors shall use commercially reasonable efforts to
enforce each Distributor License Agreement and End User License Agreement,
whichever may be relevant, with at least the same degree of diligence used in
enforcing similar agreements governing others, which in any event shall be that
sufficient to adequately enforce such agreements. Oracle shall use commercially
reasonable efforts to protect Netscape's copyright, shall notify Netscape of any
breach of a material obligation under a Distributor License Agreement or an End
User License Agreement affecting Netscape Products, and will cooperate with
Netscape in any legal action to prevent or stop unauthorized use, reproduction
or distribution of Netscape Products.

4.    Fees and Payment

4.1   Prepaid License Fees

      4.1.1 Oracle shall pay to Netscape the non-refundable prepaid license fees
            ("Prepaid License Fees") specified in Exhibit B hereto. Upon
            exhaustion of the Prepaid License Fees, Oracle shall pay to Netscape
            the license fee specified in Exhibit B for each license granted by
            Oracle and/or Distributors to End Users in connection with the
            distribution of all or any portion of a Netscape Product or Update.
            Subject to the terms of this Agreement, the Prepaid License Fees
            shall be credited against the license fees accruing under this
            Agreement during the Initial Term of the Agreement. License fees
            shall accrue for any license to a Netscape Product at the time
            revenue is recognized by Oracle for shipment of an Oracle Product
            with the Netscape Product. In the event that Oracle distributes (i)
            at no charge Oracle Products containing the Netscape Product or (ii)
            Oracle Products containing the Netscape Product which Oracle does
            not intend to recognize revenue on at time of shipment, license fee
            hereunder shall still accrue at the time of shipment.

      4.1.2 Service Fees. Oracle shall pay to Netscape the service fees set
            forth in Exhibit B for maintenance and support services described in
            Exhibit D hereto.

4.2   Payment and Taxes

      4.2.1 Payments. All payments shall be made in United States dollars, at
            Netscape's option, (i) at Netscape's address as indicated in this
            Agreement or at such other address as Netscape may from time to time
            indicate by proper notice hereunder or (ii) by wire transfer to a
            bank and account number designated by Netscape. Payments, if any,
            shall accompany the applicable quarterly report under Section 4.3.


                                       6


      4.2.2 Taxes. All prices are in U.S. Dollars and are exclusive of any
            applicable taxes. Oracle shall pay, indemnify and hold Netscape
            harmless from all import duties, customs fees, levies or imposts,
            and all sales, use, value added or other taxes of any nature, other
            than taxes on Netscape's net income, including penalties and
            interest, and all government permit or license fees assessed upon or
            with respect to any products sold or licensed to Oracle and any
            services rendered to Oracle (except to the extent Oracle provides
            Netscape with a valid tax exemption certificate). If any applicable
            law requires Oracle to withhold amounts from any payments to
            Netscape hereunder, Oracle shall effect such withholding, remit such
            amounts to the appropriate taxing authorities and promptly furnish
            Netscape with tax receipts evidencing the payments of such amounts.

4.3   Quarterly Reports

      To the extent permitted and consistent with Oracle's standard business
practices, Oracle and its Distributors shall maintain accurate records of
distribution to Distributors and/or End Users pursuant to Section 2.1.1 (ii) by
Country and Zip Code/Country Code, description of Netscape Product and quantity,
and any further information as Netscape may from time to time reasonably
request. Oracle shall report to Netscape within forty-five (45) calendar days
after the end of each Oracle fiscal quarter, the type, if applicable, and number
of licenses granted for the Netscape Products during such prior quarter by
Oracle to Distributors and End Users including zip/postal code and/or country
therefor. Oracle shall require its Distributors and each Distributor shall
require its Distributors to report this information to Oracle on a quarterly
basis and Oracle will include it in the report for the quarter in which Oracle
received the information. For the purposes of this Agreement, "Oracle fiscal
quarter" commences on the first day of June, September, December and March of
each year during the term of this Agreement.

4.4   Audit of Records

      4.4.1 Oracle shall keep and maintain full, true, and accurate records
            containing all data reasonably required for verification of amounts
            to be paid, and the quantity of Netscape Products distributed.
            Netscape shall have the right, no more than once every year during
            normal business hours upon at least thirty (30) days prior notice,
            to audit and analyze, by a nationally recognized independent public
            accounting firm, the relevant records of Oracle to verify compliance
            with the provisions of this Agreement. The audit shall be conducted
            at Netscape's expense unless the results of such audit establish
            that inaccuracies have resulted in underpayment to Netscape of more
            than five percent (5%) of the amount actually due, in which case
            Oracle shall pay all amounts due and bear the expenses of the audit.
            Results of such audit will be held confidential.

      4.4.2 Upon Netscape's request that Oracle perform an audit of any first
            tier Distributor's books and records with respect to distribution of
            the Netscape Products, Oracle shall promptly perform such audit at
            its own cost, or provide Netscape with written notice of its
            election not to audit such Distributor and permit Netscape, at
            Netscape's cost and with reasonable assistance from Oracle, to audit
            such Distributor. Netscape shall be responsible for the reasonable
            expenses associated with such audit unless the results of such audit
            establish that inaccuracies have resulted in underpayment to
            Netscape of more than five percent (5%) of the amount actually due,
            in which case Oracle shall pay all amounts due and bear the expenses
            of the audit. Results of such audit will be held confidential.


                                       7


      4.4.3 Upon Netscape's request that Oracle perform an audit of any End
            User's books and records with respect to reproduction and use of the
            Netscape Products, Oracle shall promptly perform such audit at its
            own cost, or provide Netscape with written notice of its election
            not to audit such End User and permit Netscape, at Netscape's cost
            and with reasonable assistance from Oracle, to audit such End User.
            Netscape shall be responsible for the reasonable expenses associated
            with such audit unless the results of such audit establish that
            inaccuracies have resulted in underpayment to Netscape of more than
            five percent (5%) of the amount actually due, in which case Oracle
            shall pay all amounts due and bear the expenses of the audit.
            Results of such audit will be held confidential.

5.    Deliverables, Updates, and Technical Support

5.1   Deliverables

      Netscape shall provide Oracle with the deliverables indicated in Exhibit B
("Deliverables"). All deliveries under this Agreement shall be F.C.A. Netscape.
"F.C.A." means Free Carrier Alongside and shall have the definition in INCOTERMS
1990.

5.2   Updates and Technical Support

      Netscape shall provide Oracle with Updates as they become available from
Netscape at the pricing, terms and conditions specified in Exhibits B and D.

6.    Trademarks and Trade Names/License to Use

Whenever Oracle makes reference to the Netscape Products or the functionality of
the Netscape Products provided within the Oracle Product, Oracle shall use, and
is hereby granted a worldwide non-transferable, non-exclusive and restricted
license to use (with no right to sublicense), "Netscape Navigator Included" and
those Netscape trademarks and trade names relating to the applicable Netscape
Products in any advertising, marketing, technical or other materials related to
such Netscape Products which are distributed by Oracle or its Distributors in
connection with this Agreement. Such use shall be in accordance with Netscape's
then current trademark guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit F and to be
provided and updated by Netscape from time to time. Oracle need not use
Netscape's trademarks and trade names in any country in which their connotation
is offensive and will consult with Netscape as to the foreign translation of
Netscape trademarks and trade names so that Netscape can help ensure uniformity
with their use by Netscape or third parties. Oracle shall dearly indicate
Netscape's ownership of Netscape's trademarks or trade names. All such usage
shall inure to Netscape's benefit. Oracle agrees not to register, and agrees to
obtain the agreement of its Distributors not to register, any Netscape
trademarks or trade names without Netscape's express prior written consent. Upon
Netscape's request from time to time Oracle agrees to provide Netscape with
copies of goods bearing Netscape's trademarks and trade names so that Netscape
can verify that the quality of Oracle's use of such trademarks is comparable to
that of Netscape's use thereof. Oracle shall suspend use of Netscape trademarks
and trade names if such quality is reasonably deemed inferior by Netscape until
Oracle has taken such steps as Netscape may reasonably require to solve the
quality deficiencies. Netscape will update Oracle when trademark guidelines
change.

8.    Confidential Information and Disclosure

8.1   Confidential Information

purposes of this Agreement "Confidential Information" shall mean information
including, without limitation, computer programs, code, algorithms, know-how,
formulas, processes, ideas, inventions (whether patentable or not), schematics
and other technical, business, financial and product development plans,

"Confidential." Each party agrees to take all reasonable precautions to prevent
any unauthorized disclosure or use of Confidential Information including,
without limitations disclosing Confidential Information only to its employees
(a) with a need to know to further permitted uses of such information and (b)
who are parties to appropriate agreements sufficient to comply with this Section

rightfully known or becomes rightfully known to the receiving party without
confidential or proprietary restriction from a source other than the disclosing
party; (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without the
participation of individuals who have had access to the Confidential
Information; (iv) is approved by the disclosing party for disclosure without
restriction in a written document which is signed by a duly authorized officer
of such disclosing party; and (v) the receiving party is legally compelled to
disclose; provided, however, that prior to any such compelled disclosure, the

Confidential Information against the third party seeking disclosure and (b)
cooperate fully with the disclosing party in protecting against any such
disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order narrowing the scope of such
disclosure and/or use of the Confidential Information. In the event that such
protection against disclosure is not obtained, the receiving party will be
entitled to disclose the Confidential Information, but only as and to the extent
necessary to legally comply with such compelled disclosure.

expense, in defending or settling such action.

      10.2 Should a Netscape Product become, or be likely to become in
Netscape's opinion, the subject of infringement of such patent, copyright,
trademark or trade secret, Netscape may (i) procure for Oracle the right to

version upon Netscape's becoming aware of an infringing version; (b) use,
operation or combination of Netscape Products with non-Netscape programs, data,
equipment or documentation if such infringement would have been avoided but for
such use, operation or combination; (c) Oracle's or its agent's activities after
Netscape has notified Oracle that Netscape


                                       11

insolvency which is not dismissed within ninety (90) calendar days, or makes an
assignment for the benefit of its creditors.

13.3  Effect on Rights

      13.3.1  Termination of this Agreement by either party shall not act as a
              waiver of any breach of this Agreement and shall not act as a
              release of either party from any liability for breach of such
              party's obligations under this Agreement.

      13.3.2  Except as specified in Sections 13.4 and 13.5 below, upon
              termination or expiration of this Agreement, all licenses for
              Netscape Products and Documentation granted under this Agreement

              and not in lieu of, any other rights or remedies which the party
              may possess at law or in equity, including without limitation
              rights or remedies under applicable patent, copyright, trade
              secrets, or proprietary rights laws, rules or regulations.

13.4  Effect of Termination

      Within thirty (30) calendar days after termination of this Agreement,

its possession or under its control, and shall furnish to Netscape an affidavit
signed by an authorized signatory of Oracle certifying that, to the best of its
knowledge, such delivery or destruction has been fully effected. Notwithstanding
the foregoing, and provided Oracle fulfills its obligations specified in this
Agreement with respect to such items, Oracle may continue to use and retain
copies of the Netscape Products and Documentation to the extent, but only to the
extent, necessary to support and maintain Netscape Products rightfully
distributed to End Users by Oracle prior to termination of this Agreement.
Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, and provided that Oracle has
not breached Sections 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 6, 7.2 or 8: (i) for six (6) months
following any termination or expiration, Oracle may sublicense and distribute in
accordance with the terms of this Agreement any inventory of the Netscape
Product, including work in process, on hand or in the manufacturing process at
the time of such termination or expiration; (ii) Oracle may continue to exercise
the rights and licenses granted hereunder until six (6) months after termination
or expiration to fill any orders received by Oracle or its Distributors from End

expiration; and (iii) subject to payment of the fees set forth in Section 3 of
Exhibit B, Oracle may continue to exercise the rights and licenses granted
hereunder as necessary to provide maintenance and technical support for End
Users under support agreements as of the date of any termination or expiration.
In the event that Oracle has breached Sections 2.1.1, 2.1.2, 6, 7.2 or 8, then
Oracle's rights under this Agreement with respect to the Netscape Products shall
immediately terminate. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, Oracle shall still
have the right following expiration of the Agreement or termination of the
Agreement for any cause to sublicense, provided in accordance with the terms of
this Agreement, any remaining inventory of the one million (1,000,000) copies of
the Netscape Products for which Oracle has prepaid Netscape.

              prior to its termination shall survive; provided, however, that
              Oracle shall immediately terminate and shall require Distributors
              to immediately terminate an End User sublicense upon the failure
              of the End User to cure a breach of or default under the End User
              License Agreement within forty-five (45) days after written
              notification to the End User by Oracle or to Oracle by Netscape of
              End User's failure to comply with its duties and obligations under
              the applicable sections of the End User License Agreement that are
              required to be included therein pursuant to this Agreement.

              obligations of Netscape and Oracle under the provisions of

                  copy of the source code and related materials ("Source Code")
                  for the Netscape Product, including each Update, in escrow
                  with Data Securities International, Inc. (the "Escrow Agent")

                  supporting Netscape Products. Such license shall be effective
                  upon the proper release of the Source Code from the Escrow
                  Agent, in accordance with the terms of the Escrow Agreement.
                  The object code derived from source code modified by Oracle is
                  subject to the same restrictions and obligations as apply to
                  Oracle with respect to the Netscape Product under this
                  Agreement, including but not limited to the payment of license
                  fees. Netscape shall have no obligation to support or maintain
                  any Source Code modified by Oracle.

      14.11.3     Ownership. Netscape shall retain all ownership rights, title
                  and interest in and to the Source Code, including all patents,
                  copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets and other intellectual
                  property rights inherent therein.


                                       16


      14.11.4     Confidentiality

                  14.11.4.1  Any Source Code which Oracle receives under this
                             Agreement shall be subject to the confidentiality
                             provisions contained in Section 8; provided,
                             however, that the restrictions set forth in Section
                             8 shall survive for a period of ten (10) years
                             after the termination of this Agreement with
                             respect to the Source Code.

                  14.11.4.2  Oracle agrees that, in addition to the provisions
                             of Section 8, it will protect the confidentiality
                             of the Source Code using the highest level of
                             security that applies to its own most confidential
                             source code.

                  14.11.4.3  Oracle shall be fully responsible for the conduct
                             of its employees and independent contractors who
                             may in any way breach the provisions of Section 8
                             and this Section 14.11 as they may relate to the
                             Source Code. Oracle agrees to notify Netscape
                             promptly in the event of any breach of its security
                             under conditions in which it would appear that the
                             trade secrets represented by the Source Code were
                             prejudiced or exposed to loss. Oracle shall, upon
                             request of Netscape, take all other reasonable
                             steps, necessary to recover any compromised trade
                             secrets disclosed to or placed in the possession of
                             Oracle by virtue of this Agreement. The cost of
                             taking such steps shall be borne by Oracle.

                  14.11.4.4  Oracle acknowledges that any breach of any of its
                             obligations with respect to confidentiality or use
                             of Source Code hereunder is likely to cause or
                             threaten irreparable harm to Netscape and,
                             accordingly, Oracle agrees that in such event
                             Netscape shall be entitled to equitable relief to
                             protect its interest therein, including, but not
                             limited to, preliminary and permanent injunctive
                             relief, as well as money damages.

14.12 Source Code Option

      Netscape hereby grants Oracle an option to license the source code version
of the next Major Update of the Netscape Navigator 3.0 LAN version (currently
named Netscape Navigator 4.0 LAN version), excluding Third Party Code, as
defined below (the "Netscape Source"), subject to the following terms (the
"Source Option").

      14.12.1     Option Length. The Source Option shall terminate on the 180th
                  day following the date of production release/FCS (First
                  customer Ship) of the object code version of the Netscape
                  Source.

      14.12.2     Exercise Price. The exercise price for the Source Option shall
                  be US $2,000,000 (two million dollars), to be paid to Netscape
                  on the date of exercise.

      14.12.3     Third Party Code. Oracle acknowledges that the Netscape Source
                  may contain source code or object code licensed by Netscape
                  from a third party ("Third Party Code"), and that Netscape
                  does not have the right to sublicense Third Party Code to
                  Oracle. All licenses granted hereto are subject to this
                  limitation of Third Party Code. A list of Third Party Code in
                  the Netscape Source as of September 1996 is set forth in
                  Exhibit G. Oracle acknowledges that it shall be


                                       17


                  Oracle's responsibility to obtain licenses to Third Party
                  Code. If Oracle exercises the Source Option, Netscape will
                  make an introductory phone call to the vendor of the Third
                  Party Code requesting a waiver permitting Netscape to deliver
                  such Third Party Code to Oracle for the sole purpose of Oracle
                  porting to a platform of any Oracle Preferred Product or
                  non-Intel based Oracle Network Computer not available from
                  Netscape (a "Ported Version"), in exchange for which Oracle
                  will return the Ported Version to the Third Party Code vendor
                  (if such vendor so desires). If a Third Party Code vendor
                  disagrees, Netscape will provide Oracle with a name and
                  contact information at the Third Party Code vendor.

      14.12.4     Effect of Exercise of Source Option. Following Oracle's
                  exercise of and payment for the Source Option:

                  (a)   Netscape shall grant Oracle an internal use license to
                        use, reproduce and modify the Netscape Source solely in
                        order to port and improve the integration between the
                        Netscape Source and any Oracle Preferred Product or
                        non-Intel based Oracle Network Computer and not to
                        create any Derivative Work or for any other purpose. The
                        Netscape Source, as modified by Oracle under this
                        Section 14.12.4(a) is referred to below as the
                        ("Modified Source"), and

                  (b)   Oracle shall return the Modified Source to Netscape at
                        or prior to commercial release.

                  (c)   The rights granted to Oracle to distribute Netscape
                        Products under Section 2 of the Agreement shall apply to
                        the object code version of the Modified Source.

                  (d)   Oracle shall ensure that the Modified Source is of a
                        quality comparable to Oracle programs and the Netscape
                        Source. Oracle shall provide the Modified Source to
                        Netscape prior to release of the Modified Source to
                        third parties. Netscape may treat the Modified Source,
                        and the object code versions compiled therefrom, as
                        Netscape treats its own code.

      14.12.5     No Right to Sublicense. Oracle shall not have the right to
                  sublicense or distribute the Netscape Source or the Modified
                  Source.

      14.12.6     Protection of Source Code. The Netscape Source and Modified
                  Source shall be Confidential Information governed by the terms
                  of Section 8 whether or not the Source Code is marked
                  "Confidential" by Netscape, provided however that the
                  restrictions set forth in Section 8 shall survive for a period
                  of ten (10) years after the date of exercise of this Source
                  Option.

      14.12.7     Rights Limited. This Agreement does not grant any right or
                  license to Oracle other than those expressly provided herein,
                  and no other grant or license is to be implied by or inferred
                  from any provision of this Agreement.

14.13 Porting.

      Notwithstanding Section 14.12, upon reasonable written notice to Netscape,
Oracle shall have the right at Oracle's expense, to access Netscape's porting
facilities under Netscape's standard terms and conditions therefor solely to
port to and integrate the Netscape Preferred Product with Oracle Preferred
Products or non-Intel based Oracle Network Computers and not to create any
Derivative Work or for any other purpose. Netscape Preferred Product will
include the beta version thereof which Netscape generally provides porting
facilities access to other OEM


                                       18


partners. It is Netscape's policy to make a beta version available to Netscape's
OEM partners only when Netscape, in its sole discretion, deems such beta version
generally stable enough for distribution to such OEM partners. Examples of
Oracle's expenses, calculated based on Netscape's cost, could include computer
equipment used for project, software tools and third party software components
for project, support from Netscape engineering and documentation writers for
project, customized quality assurance test scripts, cost for space and any
ongoing Netscape support for this project.


                                       19


IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties have caused this Agreement to be executed by
duly authorized representatives of the parties effective as of the Effective
Date.

                                    EXHIBIT D

                           OEM MAINTENANCE AND SUPPORT

      In consideration of the applicable license fee, Netscape will provide to
Oracle the maintenance and support services set forth in this Exhibit D during
the Initial Term of the Agreement or the term for which Netscape has received
payment therefor (the "Support Term"). Notwithstanding anything contained in
this Exhibit D to the contrary, Oracle shall not be entitled to provide Updates
to any Distributor or End User or use any back-end support received from
Netscape to provide front-line support to any Distributor or End User prior to
the payment by Oracle to Netscape of the annual maintenance and support fee.

1. Maintenance/Minor Updates. Netscape will provide to Oracle any Minor Updates
made generally available by Netscape during the Support Term. Oracle and not
Netscape will be responsible for providing Minor Updates to its Distributors
and/or End Users. The expenses of any such distribution will be paid by Oracle.
Oracle and Netscape will favorably consider electronic or alternative
dissemination methods of such Minor Updates to the extent consistent with
policies of both companies. Oracle and Netscape agree to discuss monthly support
issues and processes.

2. Technical Support. Netscape will provide Oracle with Netscape's backend
technical support services as follows:

      (a) Back-end Support. Netscape will provide back-end support to Oracle for
Program Errors not resolved by Oracle pursuant to Oracle's support policies and
in accordance with subsection (b) below. This support includes efforts to
identify defective source code and to provide corrections, workarounds and/or
patches to correct Program Errors. Netscape will provide Oracle with a telephone
number and an e-mail address which Oracle may use to report Program Errors
during Netscape's local California business hours (5am - 5pm Pacific Standard
Time). For priority 1 failures, Oracle agrees to notify Netscape via both
telephone and e-mail. Oracle will identify two (2) members of its customer
support staff and an alternate to act as the primary technical liaisons
responsible for all communications with Netscape's technical support
representatives. Such liaisons will have sufficient technical expertise,
training and/or experience for Oracle to perform its obligations hereunder.
Within one (1) week after the Effective Date, Oracle will designate its
liaison(s). Notification will be in writing and/or e-mail to Netscape. Oracle
may substitute contacts at any time by providing to Netscape one (1) week's
prior written and/or electronic notice thereof. 

Netscape will make reasonable efforts to correct significant Program Errors that
Oracle identifies, classifies and reports to Netscape and that Netscape
substantiates. Netscape may reclassify Program Errors if it reasonably believes
that Oracle's classification is incorrect. Oracle will provide sufficient
information to enable Netscape to duplicate the Program Error before Netscape's
response obligations will commence. Netscape will not be required to correct any
Program Error caused by (a) Oracle's in corporation or attachment of a feature,
program, or device to the Netscape Product, or any part thereof; (b) any
nonconformance caused by accident, transportation, neglect, misuse, alteration,
modification, or enhancement of the Netscape Product; (c) the failure to provide
a suitable installation environment; (d) use of the Netscape Product for other
than the specific purpose for which the Netscape Product was designed; (e) use
of the Netscape Product on any systems other than the specified hardware
platform for such Netscape Product; (f) Oracle's use of defective media or
defective duplication of the Netscape Product; or (g) Oracle's failure to
incorporate any Maintenance Release or Update previously released by Netscape
which corrects such Program Error.


                                       29


Provided Program Error reports are received by Netscape during Netscape's local
California business hours (5am - 5pm Pacific Standard Time), Netscape will use
its best commercial efforts to communicate with Oracle about the Program Error
via telephone or e-mail within the following targeted response times:

For Standard Technical Support:

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Initial Action Target Fix of Priority Failure Description Response Time Plan Within Workaround ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Fatal (system down or unusable) 4 working hours 10 working hours 5 working days ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Severe Impact (functionality 4 working hours 12 working hours 10 working days disabled): errors which result in a lack of application functionality or cause intermittent system failure ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3 Degraded Operations: errors 6 working hours 36 working hours 15 working days causing malfunction of non-critical functions ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4 Minimal Impact: attributes and/or 12 working hours 10 working days Next release options to utility programs do not operate as stated ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5 Enhancement Request 12 working hours 15 working days Next release -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For Premium Technical Support: Netscape will also provide Oracle with an emergency telephone pager number which Oracle may use to report only Priority I Program Errors twenty four (24) hours a day, seven (7) days a week.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Initial Action Target Fix of Priority Failure Description Response Time Plan Within Workaround ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 1 Fatal (system down or unusable) 2 working hours 6 working hours 5 working days ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Severe Impact (functionality 2 working hours 10 working hours 10 working days disabled): errors which result in a lack of application functionality or cause intermittent system failure ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 3 Degraded Operations: errors 4 working hours 12 working hour 15 working days causing malfunction of non-critical functions ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 4 Minimal Impact: attributes 8 working hours 8 working days Next release and/or options to utility programs do not operate as stated ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 5 Enhancement Request 8 working hours 8 working days Next release -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Netscape will use reasonable commercial efforts to resolve each significant Program Error by providing either a reasonable workaround, an object code patch, or a specific action plan for how Netscape will address the problem and an estimate of how long it will take to rectify the defect. Netscape reserves the right to charge Oracle additional fees at its then-standard rates for support services performed in connection with customized Netscape Product or reported Program Errors which are later determined to have been due to hardware or software not supplied by Netscape. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Netscape has no obligation to perform services in connection with (i) Program Errors resulting from hardware or software not supplied by Netscape; or (ii) 30 which occur in the Netscape Product release which is not the then-current release. Netscape agrees to support in accordance with this Exhibit D a given revision of the Product for the shorter of (i) twelve (12) months from the date such revision is superseded by the next sequential Minor and/or Major Update; or (ii) until such revision is superseded by two (2) sequential Minor and/or Major Updates. (For example, Netscape will support version 2. i for the shorter of twelve (12) months from the date version 2.2 or 3.0 (if 3.0 is the next sequential release), is released by Netscape, or until version 2.1 is superseded by two (2) sequential releases (2.2 and 2.3 or 2.2 and 3.0, as the case may be.) (b) Front-line Support. Oracle, and not Netscape, will provide front-line, or first and second level, technical support to its Distributors or End Users. Such support includes call receipt, call screening, installation assistance, problem identification and diagnosis, efforts to create a repeatable demonstration of the Program Error and, if applicable, the distribution of any Maintenance Releases or Updates. Oracle agrees that any documentation distributed by Oracle will clearly and conspicuously state that Distributors and End Users should call Oracle for technical support for the Netscape Product. Netscape will have no obligation to furnish any assistance, information or documentation with respect to the Netscape Product, to any End User. If Netscape customer support representatives are being contacted by a significant number of Oracle's Distributors and/or End Users then, upon Netscape's request, Oracle and Netscape will cooperate to minimize such contract. In the event that Netscape is able to identify any End User obtaining front-line support from Netscape as a customer of Oracle, Oracle hereby agrees to pay to Netscape Netscape's then current charges for such support. 31 EXHIBIT E-1 ORACLE PREFERRED PRODUCTS Intel based version of Oracle Network Computer Oracle InterOffice 32 EXHIBIT E-2 ORACLE NON-PREFERRED PRODUCTS Acorn based version of Oracle Network Computer Other non-Intel based versions of Oracle Network Computers Oracle programs on the Oracle price list not listed in Exhibits E-1 and E-2 33 EXHIBIT F NETSCAPE TRADEMARK USAGE GUIDELINES 34 Trademark Usage Guidelines General Terms and Conditions You must comply with the following guidelines in order to avoid any breach of the terms and conditions under which you have been authorized or licensed to use Netscape's logos, service marks, trademarks, and/or registered trademarks: o All logos, service marks, trademarks, and/or registered trademarks under which Netscape markets or promotes its various products are, and shall remain, the exclusive property of Netscape Communications Corporation or its subsidiaries. o Advertising for Netscape, its products, or its programs must not be in violation of any United States federal or state laws, municipal ordinances or administrative agency regulations, or the laws, rules and regulations of any other country. o Advertising for Netscape, its products, or its programs must not be misleading in price, product features or specifications. Netscape may modify these guidelines from time to time and you will be bound to comply with the material contained in the updated guidelines immediately upon receipt of the new guidelines. Trademark Guidelines o Trademarks must be used as art adjective to identify products from Netscape. Trademarks must not be used as a noun or verb. Trademarks must never appear in plural or possessive form. Examples: Incorrect o The Netscape Navigator provides access to Internet. o The Netscape Navigator's code is proprietary. o The Netscape Navigators are popular. Correct o The Netscape Navigator(TM) software provides access to Internet. o The Netscape Navigator(TM) software's code is proprietary. o The Netscape Navigator(TM) software programs are popular. o After first use of trademark as an adjective, and if needed for ease of writing, you may alternate use of the trademark between an adjective and a noun. o The first mention of a Netscape trademark in the body of printed material must include proper notice of trademark ownership, i.e., (R), (TM) or (SM). If the first mention is in a headline, the symbols do not have to appear at that mention provided there is text (on the same page/screen) following the headline or title where the notice does appear. 1 o Advertising and all other printed materials must include credit lines for Netscape products. If more than one Netscape trademark/servicemark or registered trademark/servicemark is used, all may be incorporated into one sentence. A sample credit line that meets these criteria is: The following are worldwide trademarks of Netscape Communications Corporation or its subsidiaries, registered in the United States as indicated by "(R)," and in numerous other countries worldwide: Netscape(TM); Netscape Navigator(TM); Netscape iStore(TM). o When listing the names and/or logos of other trademark owners, you must acknowledge their trademark(s) with the following: All other names indicated by (R) or (TM) are registered trademarks or trademarks of their respective owners. If space permits, a more detailed credit should appear, e.g., RSA Digital Signature is a trademark of RSA Data Security, Inc. The following chart is a list of Netscape trademarks, which may be used only to identify the products of Netscape Communications Corporation or its subsidiaries. Use of the "(R)" in the chart indicates registration in the United States of America for the related mark. Use of the "(TM)" symbol is appropriate for any Netscape marks outside the United States of America; however, registration has been secured for many of the marks in other countries, and further registrations will have been secured since this printing. Information available from your local office of Netscape Communications Corporation will control the proper usage of a registration symbol for the local jurisdiction. Use of the trademark symbols may differ from country to country. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Descriptive Copy/ Trademark Special Considerations -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Netscape communications Corporation Logo (see Corporate Signature Kit) -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netsite TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Mozilla TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Navigator TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Internet Applications TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Communications Server TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Commerce Server TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape News Server TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Proxy Server TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Merchant System TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Community System TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape Publishing System TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Netscape iStore TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Secure Courier TM -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Netscape Navigator(TM) Included Logo and Trademark Usage Guidelines [LOGO] N E T S C A P E -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- [GRAPHIC OMITTED] 1.
