        2.3 Compatibility and Trademark License.

             (a) Compatibility Testing. 3Com will finalize and provide to JD
compatibility test criteria for ensuring interoperability of third party add-on
software for the Palm OS and the JD Products ("Test Criteria") within ninety
(90) days of the Effective Date. JD and 3Com will agree on a reasonable time
period for compatibility testing of the JD Products by any of 3Com's independent
testing labs ("Test Period") which shall be incorporated into the Test Criteria.
When finalized, such Test Criteria shall be attached as Exhibit B (Test
Criteria) to this Agreement. 3Com shall use its reasonable discretion in
determining the contents of the Test Criteria; provided that, in the event JD
does not approve of the Test Criteria, as its sole and exclusive remedy JD may
terminate this Agreement immediately without liability within thirty (30) days
of its first receipt of the Test Criteria from 3Com. Prior to the release of any
and all JD Products, or any upgrade or new version thereof, JD shall submit the

paragraph of Section 2.3(a), JD may submit JD Products for compatibility testing
against such new Test Criteria in accordance with Section 2.3(a). JD may
indicate compatibility certification for JD Products only with respect to the
version(s) of the Test Criteria which the JD Products have passed.

             (c) Trademark License. Subject to subsections (a) and (b) above and
the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, 3Com hereby grants to JD a
limited, non-exclusive, nontransferable (except as provided in Section 17.9),
fully-paid license to use, subject to the guidelines set forth in 3Com's
Trademark Policy Guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit C, the "Palm Computing
Platform Compatible" trademark and such other 3Com trademarks and the respective
stylistic marks as may be mutually agreeable and the artwork for which has been
provided by 3Com to JD (collectively, the "3Com Trademarks") in connection with

certification in accordance with subsection (a) above. JD shall use such
trademarks in conjunction with the distribution, promotion, and marketing of any
JD Products that have received compatibility certification, consistent with the
guidelines set forth in Exhibit C. 3Com shall have the right to receive free

             (a) 3Com warrants to JD that the Palm Software will continue
performing properly with regard to date-data on and after January 1, 2000,
provided that all other products used by JD in connection or combination with
the Palm Software accurately exchange date-data with the Palm Software. 3Com
makes no certification regarding the performance of any other 3Com products with
regard to date-data.

             (b) If it appears that any Palm Software does not perform properly
with regard to date-data on and after January 1, 2000, and JD notifies 3Com
thereof before April 1, 2000, 3Com shall, at its option and expense, provide JD
with a software update which would effect the proper performance of the Palm
Software or deliver to JD equivalent software to replace the Palm Software. Any
such software update or equivalent software will be warranted pursuant to
subsection (a) above for ninety (90) days or until April 1, 2000, whichever is
later.

12. INDEMNIFICATION

        12.1 By 3Com. 3Com shall, at its own expense, defend and indemnify JD
for damages and reasonable costs incurred in any suit, claim or proceeding
brought against JD alleging that the Palm Software, Palm Materials or 3Com
Trademarks licensed pursuant to this Agreement infringe (i) any patents in the
U.S., Canada, Japan, or the European Community, (ii) any copyrights worldwide,
or (iii) any trademarks in any countries in which 3Com markets products in
connection with the 3Com Trademarks, or misappropriate any trade secrets,
provided that 3Com is promptly notified, rendered reasonable assistance by JD as
required, and permitted to direct the defense or settlement negotiations. 3Com
shall have no liability for any infringement arising from: (a) the integration
or combination of the Palm Software, Palm Materials or Com, Trademarks together
with other software, materials or products not integrated or combined by 3Com,
if the infringement would have been avoided in the absence of such integration
or combination; (b) the use of other than a current unaltered release of the
software available from 3Com, if the infringement would have been avoided by the
use of the then-current release, and if 3Com has provided such current release
to JD; or (c) modifications to the Palm Software or Palm Materials requested by
JD.

        12.2 Remedies. In the event 3Com reasonably believes that the use or
distribution of any Palm Software, Palm Materials or 3Com Trademarks is likely
to be enjoined, 3Com may, at its option, either: (i) substitute functionally
equivalent non-infringing Palm Software or Palm Materials, as the case may be;
(ii) modify the infringing item so that it no longer infringes but remains
functionally equivalent; (iii) obtain for JD, at 3Com's expense, the right to
continue use of such item; or (iv) if none of the foregoing is feasible, 3Com
may take back such infringing item or items and terminate only that portion of
the license associated with respect to such item or items, subject to a mutually
satisfactory equitable reduction in the Royalty and fees payable under this
Agreement. Should the use or distribution of any Palm Software, Palm Materials
or 3Com Trademarks be enjoined, 3Com shall, at its option, either: (i)
substitute functionally equivalent non-infringing Palm Software or Palm
Materials, as the case may be; (ii) modify the infringing item so that it no
longer infringes but remains functionally equivalent; (iii) obtain for



                                       14
   15

JD, at 3Com's expense, the right to continue use of such item; or (iv) if none
of the foregoing is feasible, 3Com may take back such infringing item or items
and terminate only that portion of the license associated with respect to such
item or items, subject to a mutually satisfactory equitable reduction in the
Royalty and fees payable under this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, JD
acknowledges that 3Com may undertake to obtain patent licenses from third
parties relating to the Palm Software, and in such event the royalty obligation
for the JD Products arising from such patent licenses shall be passed through
to, and paid at the direction of 3Com by JD; provided, however, that the
per-unit royalty obligation payable by JD shall not exceed the per-unit or
percentage royalty obligation (whichever is less) payable by 3Com for products
similar to the JD Products, and shall not in any event exceed [*]. SECTIONS 12.1
and 12.2 STATE JD'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO CLAIMS OF
INFRINGEMENT OF PROPRIETARY RIGHTS OF ANY KIND, AND ALL WARRANTIES OF
NON-INFRINGEMENT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE SPECIFICALLY DISCLAIMED AND EXCLUDED.

        12.3 By JD. JD shall, at its own expense, defend and indemnify 3Com for

alleging that the JD Products, JD Software and/or related materials infringe (i)
any patents in the U.S., Canada, Japan, or the European Community, (ii) any
copyrights worldwide, or (iii) any trademarks in any countries in which JD
markets products in connection with the 3Com Trademarks, or misappropriate any
trade secrets, provided that JD is promptly notified, rendered reasonable
assistance by 3Com as required, and permitted to direct the defense or
settlement negotiations. JD shall have no liability for any infringement arising
from: (a) the integration or combination of the JD Products or JD Software
together with other software, materials or products not integrated or combined
by JD, if the infringement would have been avoided in the absence of such
integration or combination; or (b) use or distribution of Palm Software or Palm
Materials. SECTION 12.3 STATES 3COM'S SOLE AND EXCLUSIVE REMEDY WITH RESPECT TO

reasonable attorneys' fees) for bodily injury, personal injury, death and
tangible property damage as a result of the negligence, intentional wrongful
acts or omissions, or misrepresentations of the indemnifying party or any person
for whose actions it is legally liable, provided that the indemnifying party is
promptly notified, rendered reasonable assistance by the indemnified party as

and who have entered into confidentiality agreements which protect the
Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party sufficient to enable the
Receiving Party to comply with this Section 13.1 (Confidential Information). The
Receiving Party shall immediately give notice to the Disclosing Party of any
unauthorized use or disclosure of Disclosing Party's Confidential Information.
The Receiving Party agrees to assist the Disclosing Party to remedy such

the Receiving Party by a third party as a matter of right and without
restriction on disclosure; (d) furnished to others by the Disclosing Party
without restriction on disclosure; or (e) independently developed by the
Receiving Party without use of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information.
Nothing in this Agreement shall prevent the Receiving Party from disclosing
Confidential Information to the extent the Receiving Party is legally compelled
to do so by any governmental investigative or judicial agency pursuant to
proceedings over which such agency has jurisdiction; provided, however, that
prior to any such disclosure, the Receiving Party shall (i) assert the
confidential nature of the Confidential Information to the agency; (ii)
immediately notify the Disclosing Party in writing of the agency's order or
request to disclose; and (iii) cooperate fully with the Disclosing Party in
protecting against any such disclosure and/or obtaining a protective order
narrowing the scope of the compelled disclosure and protecting its
confidentiality.

        13.3 Other Palm Software Source Code Restrictions. Except as permitted
in this Agreement, JD shall not use, make, have made, distribute or disclose any

limitations, duties and obligations regarding nondisclosure and copying of such
source code and shall obtain or have obtained their written agreement to comply
with such limitations, duties and obligations. JD shall maintain records of its

"Severity One" Support is defined as-support required to address a fatal program error in the Palm Software which has a critical business impact and precludes significant useful work from being done or, significantly precludes developer and/or end-user operations. "Severity Two" Support is defined as support required to address a program error in the Palm Software which has a significant business impact where important features are unavailable with no acceptable workaround and development operations are seriously impaired. "Severity Three" Support is defined as support required to address a program error in the Palm Software with some business impact, such as important features unavailable but a workaround is available or less significant features are unavailable with no reasonable workaround. 2. Support Response Times. The parties shall promptly agree in good faith to share any information and/or documentation which may be required to permit 3Com to identify and resolve any development support requests. The support response period begins after 3Com (a) has enough information to profile the reported error and (b) can recreate the reported error or has access to a facility where the error can be recreated ("Start Date"). 3Com agrees to use commercially reasonable efforts to recreate the reported error and respond based on the following timetable: "Severity One" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts to resolve or reduce the severity via workaround and/or patch within two (2) business days of the Start Date, or if unable to resolve such problem within such timeframe, 3Com shall provide its action plan within such timeframe and provide regular status updates. A final resolution shall be identified in the action plan. 3Com and JD problem managers shall review incident after two (2) business days and every two (2) business days thereafter until the error has been resolved. "Severity Two" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts to resolve or reduce the severity via workaround and/or patch within five (5) business days of the Start Date, or if unable to resolve such problem within such timeframe, 3Com shall provide its action plan within such timeframe and provide regular status updates. 3Com and JD problem managers shall review incident after five (5) business days. A final engineering resolution shall be identified in the action plan. "Severity Three" Support. 3Com shall use reasonable commercial efforts to acknowledge the error within ten (10) business days of receipt of notice. 3Com shall provide a final engineering resolution within three (3) months or next scheduled release, whichever is sooner. So long as 3Com is using reasonable commercial efforts to recreate reported errors and resolve or reduce Severity One and Severity Two problems in accordance with the action plan provided, 3Com's inability to resolve such problems within the timeframes stated herein or the action plan shall not be deemed a material breach of Section 6.1 the Agreement. The prescribed support response times above may be extended as mutually agreed, such agreement not to be unreasonably withheld, e.g., if resolution of the problem requires timely hardware certification or test, or if resolution represents significant risk to the essential functions. Any support requests that are attributable to any matters other than errors in the unmodified Palm Software provided by 3Com to JD hereunder are subject to billing at 3Com's standard time and materials rates. 3. Support Evaluation. The parties will attempt in good faith to promptly resolve any controversy or claim relating to performance of the technical support assistance provided by 3Com under this Agreement. Each party may request the other party to involve appropriate senior executives of such other party who shall have the authority to resolve the matter. 28 29 EXHIBIT G MINIMUM TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF END USER LICENSE 1.
