2.       HEALTH CHANNEL REQUIREMENTS AND RELATIONSHIP WITH MSN HEALTH SECTION


         2.1      DEVELOPMENT AND MAINTENANCE. WebMD shall develop, maintain,
and host the Health Channel and the home page of the MSN Health Section in
accordance with this Section 2 and the Specifications. Further, WebMD's

with respect to the Health Channel (including without limitation those versions
of the Health Channel provided to WebTV and MSNBC) and the home page of the MSN
Health Section, and the content, materials, features, technology or services
included therein or associated therewith, shall at all times be equal or
superior to that (a) of the WebMD Site, (b) to that received from WebMD by
other WebMD co-branded channels, and (c) to that received by any third party to
whom WebMD provides similar content, materials, features, technology or
services.


                  (A)    LAUNCH. The parties agree to cooperate in good faith
         to create a "transition page" that will be available within
         forty-eight (48) hours following the Effective Date so that users may
         access the WebMD Site from the MSN Site. WebMD agrees to launch (i.e.
         make available to the public) the Health Channel no later than the
         earlier of July 1, 1999 or the launch of any other health-related
         content, features or services on behalf of any third party (except
         content provided to Lycos pursuant to a contract in effect as of the
         Execution Date), and that upon such launch each page in the first two
         levels of the Health Channel shall incorporate the Network Frameworks
         in accordance with the Technical Specifications. WebMD further agrees
         that within seventy five (75) days following the Effective Date and
         thereafter during the Term of this Agreement, all pages on all levels
         within the Health Channel shall incorporate the Network Frameworks in
         accordance with the Technical Specifications and shall otherwise
         comply with the Specifications.

                  (B)    MODIFYING THE SPECIFICATIONS. The Content
         Specifications may be modified by mutual agreement of the parties,
         which agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld by any party. WebMD
         shall implement any such modifications pursuant to a schedule agreed
         upon by the parties. The parties agree to review the Content
         Specifications at least quarterly to assess the quality and
         competitiveness of and overall strategy for the Health Channel. The
         first such review shall occur within thirty (30) days following the
         Effective Date. The Technical Specifications may be modified pursuant
         to Exhibit A-2 and otherwise by mutual agreement of the parties, which
         agreement shall not be unreasonably withheld by any party.

                  (C)    MICROSOFT OVERSIGHT AND CONTENT.

                         (I)    Microsoft has the right, in its sole
                  discretion, to require WebMD to remove content from the
                  Health Channel. In the event that Microsoft determines in its
                  sole discretion that the presence of certain content on the
                  Health Channel poses an immediate concern, WebMD shall remove
                  such content within twenty-four hours of Microsoft's written
                  request. Where Microsoft does not consider content to pose an
                  immediate concern, but nonetheless determines, in its sole
                  discretion, that content should be removed, WebMD shall
                  remove such content within such longer period of time as
                  Microsoft reasonably determines is appropriate.

                         (II)   Microsoft may request that WebMD cover certain
                  topics, content, features, events or other areas or material
                  on the Health Channel. If Microsoft makes such a request in
                  writing, WebMD shall respond within ten (10) business days
                  whether WebMD desires to provide such content, features,
                  events or other areas or material. If WebMD agrees to provide
                  such topics, content, features, events or other areas or
                  material, WebMD shall incorporate such topics, content,
                  features, events or other areas or material into the Health
                  Channel as soon as commercially reasonable following such
                  agreement but in no event within more than forty-five (45)
                  days from the time it agrees to provide such topics, content,
                  features, events or other areas or material. If WebMD
                  declines to provide the topics, content, features, events or
                  other areas or material or fails to provide it within the
                  requisite amount of time, then Microsoft shall be free to
                  provide the topics, content, features, events or other areas
                  or material (either directly or through a third party), and

                  WebMD shall cooperate with Microsoft to incorporate such
                  topics, content, features, events or other areas or material
                  into the Health Channel within ten (10) business days of
                  Microsoft's providing the topics, content, features, events
                  or other areas or material to WebMD for incorporation or such
                  other reasonable period of time as the parties mutually
                  agree. In addition to the foregoing, WebMD shall incorporate
                  any legal or other notices onto the Health Channel that
                  Microsoft in its sole discretion considers necessary, within
                  twenty-four (24) hours of Microsoft's written request. The
                  parties shall meet on a regular basis, but in no event less
                  frequently than once each calendar quarter to discuss the
                  Health Channel and the WebMD Site, provided that the first
                  such meeting shall take place no later than twenty (20)
                  business days from the Execution Date, and further provided
                  that in addition to any other obligations it has to
                  Microsoft, WebMD shall use reasonable efforts to incorporate
                  into the Health Channel any topics, content, features, events
                  or other areas or material etc. that Microsoft suggests
                  during such meetings according to the same schedule as is set
                  forth above in this Section.

                         (III)  Recognizing the importance of maintaining the
                  strength, market presence, integrity and positive user
                  experience of the Health Channel, WebMD will consult with
                  Microsoft before removing or modifying any material topics,
                  content, features, events or other areas or material on the
                  Health Channel.

                         (IV)   Further, subject to the terms of this
                  Agreement, including but not limited to this Section 2.1 and
                  the Dispute Mechanism set out in Exhibit A-1(2), if WebMD has
                  included a section for a particular topic as part of the
                  Health Channel, then Microsoft shall not include a section
                  covering the same topic in the non-Health Channel portion of
                  the MSN Health Section. In addition, if Microsoft has
                  included a section for a particular topic in the non-Health
                  Channel portion of the MSN Health Section then, subject to
                  any contracts in existence between Microsoft and any third
                  party concerning the provision of such section or any part
                  thereof, in the event that WebMD later proposes providing a
                  section for such topic as part of the Health Channel,
                  Microsoft and WebMD shall use commercially reasonable efforts
                  to combine Microsoft's existing section and WebMD's proposed
                  section so that they are offered as one, or alternatively if
                  mutually agreed between the parties replace Microsoft's
                  section with WebMD's section. Finally, at Microsoft's request
                  and discretion, WebMD may provide content, features,
                  technology, or services, etc. to Microsoft for inclusion in
                  the non-Health Channel Section of the MSN Health Section in a
                  way that distinguishes it from those included in the Health
                  Channel.

                  (D)    ADVERTISING/REVENUE GENERATION SPACE. The Health
         Channel shall include Advertising space as specified in the
         Specifications and/or Network Frameworks. In addition, WebMD shall
         accommodate all requests from Microsoft for additional Advertising
         space on the Health Channel to support the goal of revenue
         maximization, and shall implement such requests as soon as reasonable.

                  (E)    MSNBC CONTENT. WebMD shall include that health news
         and editorial that is provided to WebMD by MSNBC, on all versions of
         the Health Channel. Unless otherwise specified by MSNBC and Microsoft,
         MSNBC shall be the sole provider of health news and editorial that is
         provided on the Health Channel.

         2.2      BRANDING. The Health Channel shall include a joint credit
immediately below the Network Framework header but otherwise at the top of the
page, on all Web pages included within the Health Channel, which credit shall
read Health Channel "by WebMD" or such other word or words as are mutually
approved by the parties, and shall be at least as prominent as the Microsoft
branding appearing in the Network Framework header. All use of Microsoft's
names, brands (including without limitation MSN) or logo(s) as may be
authorized by Microsoft under this Agreement shall be in accordance with the
trademark License granted in Section 11 of this Agreement and/or the Logo
Guidelines (attached as Exhibit D), as appropriate.

         2.3      INTERNATIONAL DISTRIBUTION OF THE HEALTH CHANNEL.

                  (A)    NEW MARKETS PROVIDED BY WEBMD.

                         (I)    In the event that WebMD seeks to create
                  localized health-related content for consumers, for a topic
                  specific, front page offering on local MSN portals
                  ("Localized Health Channel") in a given market, WebMD shall
                  submit written notice ("New Market Notice") of same to the
                  appropriate Microsoft contact, as designated by Microsoft,
                  which New Market Notice shall include a detailed description
                  of WebMD's plans for such market. The market identified in
                  such WebMD notice shall be deemed a "Targeted Market."
                  Microsoft agrees that, subject to (A) the terms of contracts
                  existing as of the Execution Date, (B) the provisions of this
                  Section 2.3, and/or (C) a determination by Microsoft that the
                  proposal described in the New Market Notice is not
                  commercially reasonable for the given market (but in no
                  event, however, shall Microsoft's determination be based on
                  whether Microsoft could obtain greater consideration from a
                  party other than WebMD for a localized health channel, and
                  further in no event shall Microsoft require WebMD to make any
                  additional payments with regard to providing a Localized
                  Health Channel for such Targeted Market), WebMD will become
                  the provider of a Localized Health Channel on the MSN portal
                  for such Targeted Market. Subject to and not including any
                  content provided under the terms of any contracts existing as
                  of the date of the New Market Notice, the Localized Health
                  Channel shall at all times provide the content for
                  approximately eighty percent (80%) of the sections on any
                  localized MSN Health Section for a Targeted Market provided
                  that such percentage may be increased at any time by
                  Microsoft in its sole discretion but may only be decreased by
                  mutual agreement of the parties. Microsoft shall notify WebMD
                  within ten (10) business days of the New Market Notice if
                  WebMD's proposal is rejected. WebMD shall only submit New
                  Market Notices within sixty (60) days of the Effective Date
                  or during the first week of any calendar quarter during the
                  Term, provided that WebMD may not submit any New Market
                  Notices during the last six months of the Term.

                         (II)   Once approved, if WebMD fails to make the
                  localized content for any Targeted Market available for
                  incorporation onto the relevant MSN portal within a
                  reasonable period of time following but in no event more than
                  six months of the New Market Notice (which deadline may be
                  extended by mutual agreement of the parties), such Targeted
                  Market shall be removed from the Targeted Market list, the
                  foregoing restriction in sub-Section 2.3(a)(i) above on
                  Microsoft shall no longer apply and WebMD may not deliver
                  another New Market Notice with respect to such market.

                         (III) For all intents and purposes under this
                  Agreement, any Localized Health Channels provided by WebMD
                  hereunder shall be deemed included in the definition of and
                  considered part of the Health Channel under this Agreement,
                  and the parties rights and obligations with respect to such
                  Localized Health Channels shall be the same as they are with
                  regard to the Health Channel, provided that Sections 3.6,
                  3.7, and 3.8 of this Agreement shall only apply with regard
                  to Localized Health Channels if and when a localized version
                  of the relevant Microsoft technology or property is
                  available, and if the criteria set forth in the relevant
                  sections are satisfied.

                  (B)    RIGHT OF FIRST REFUSAL. Subject to the terms of
         contracts existing as of the Execution Date, in the event that (i)
         Microsoft desires to create a Localized Health Channel as part of a
         localized MSN Health Section for a particular market, other than a
         current Targeted Market; or (ii) a third party offers Microsoft the
         opportunity to obtain a Localized Health Channel in a market other
         than a current Targeted Market; then Microsoft will so notify WebMD in
         writing ("MS Market Notice") and provide WebMD with the opportunity to
         provide such Localized Health Channel (on at least the same terms and
         conditions as offered by the third party for category (ii)). WebMD
         will respond affirmatively or negatively to such MS Market Notice
         within ten (10) business days of receipt thereof. If WebMD agrees to
         provide such content, then (x) WebMD shall make such localized content
         available for incorporation as a Localized Health Channel onto the
         relevant MSN portal within the time frame set forth in the MS Market
         Notice, but not less than forty-five (45) days from the date of the MS
         Market Notice and (y) subject to contracts

[*] CERTAIN INFORMATION IN THIS EXHIBIT HAS BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY
WITH THE COMMISSION. CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT HAS BEEN REQUESTED WITH RESPECT TO
THE OMITTED PORTIONS.
    


         existing as of the Effective Date, the Localized Health Channel shall
         at all times provide the content for approximately eighty percent
         (80%) of the sections on any localized MSN Health Section, provided
         that such percentage may be increased at any time by Microsoft in its
         sole discretion but may only be decreased by mutual agreement of the
         parties. If WebMD declines an opportunity to provide localized content
         under this Section 2.3(b) or fails to provide it within the time frame
         set forth in the MS Market Notice, then Microsoft may itself or
         through third parties develop such a Localized Health Channel for the
         MSN portal in the relevant market ("MS Market"), in which case WebMD
         may not deliver a New Market Notice with respect to such market and
         Microsoft is not required to provide any further MS Market Notice with
         respect to such Market. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the definition
         of "Microsoft Revenues" shall be extended to include corresponding
         revenues derived from such Localized Health Channel.

                  (C)    INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT AND LOCALIZATION
         SUPPORT.

                         (I)    Microsoft agrees to use reasonable efforts to
                  support WebMD's expansion of its online services into
                  international markets by providing consultation within the
                  market and making introductions within the market to local
                  contacts where relevant. Further, Microsoft will assign a
                  business development manager located in mutually agreed upon
                  markets to have, at a minimum, quarterly meetings in the
                  market with WebMD personnel, to provide to WebMD certain
                  standard reports developed by Microsoft regarding the market
                  and the local MSN portal (which reports shall be treated as
                  Microsoft or WebMD Confidential Information, as appropriate,
                  in accordance with Section 10 below), and to make
                  introductions to local contacts in particular markets where
                  Microsoft has such contacts.

                         (II)   Microsoft agrees to use reasonable efforts to
                  support WebMD's expansion of its online services into
                  international markets ("Localized WebMD Sites") by providing
                  reasonable consultation on localization strategy and
                  techniques to the level that Microsoft reasonably believes is
                  reasonably necessary for WebMD to reasonably make available
                  to end users localized language sites in Germany, France, the
                  United Kingdom and Switzerland by the one (1) year
                  anniversary of the Effective Date; provided that Microsoft
                  shall in no way be responsible for WebMD's failure to make
                  such sites available within the specified time.

                  (D)    NON-LOCALIZED INTERNATIONAL CONTENT. Microsoft will
         work with WebMD during the first 30 days following the Effective Date
         to discuss opportunities for offering worldwide non-localized Health
         Channel content as part of a potential international front page
         offering on the topic of health on existing international MSN portals
         ("Worldwide Non-Local Offering"), as relevant and appropriate, and
         subject to the approval of the local portal programming managers which
         such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. Any such
         international health topic area shall be non-exclusive and shall not
         be considered part of the Health Channel for the purposes of this
         Agreement, nor will the markets in which it may be offered be deemed a
         Targeted Market. The definition of "Microsoft Revenue" shall be
         extended to include corresponding revenues derived from such Worldwide
         Non-Local Offering. Without limiting the non-exclusivity with respect
         to any specific market described above, provided that the parties are
         offering a Worldwide Non-Local Offering under this Section within one
         hundred eighty (180) days of the Execution Date, then, subject to any
         agreements in effect as of the Execution Date, Microsoft shall not
         enter into any other agreements with third parties for a Worldwide
         Non-Local Offering.

                  (E)    INTEGRATION. WebMD acknowledges that the international
         MSN Web Sites are run on different platforms and with different tools
         than the United States version. When WebMD does create a Localized
         Health Channel and/or Worldwide Non-local Offering for a given market
         in accordance with this Section 2.3, such content shall be integrated
         into the local MSN portal in accordance with the requirements for the
         local MSN portal.

                  (F)    CHANNEL PROMOTION. In the event that WebMD creates
         Localized Health Channels pursuant to this Section 2.3, Microsoft
         agrees to promote such Channels in the same manner as it promotes
         other front page links on the relevant local MSN portal, and WebMD
         agrees to promote the Localized Health Channel on its localized WebMD
         Consumer Site in the relevant market in the same fashion as it
         promotes the Health Channel on the WebMD Consumer Site in the United
         States. In addition, Microsoft


                                       8

[*] CERTAIN INFORMATION IN THIS EXHIBIT HAS BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY

THE OMITTED PORTIONS.
    


         shall promote health-related Web events in each Localized Health
         Channel to the extent and a number of times, if at all, that Microsoft
         reasonably determines are appropriate for each market. The content of
         such health-related Web events shall be provided by WebMD and subject
         to Microsoft's approval, in its sole discretion.

                  (G)    EXPRESSLY EXCLUDED MARKETS. Notwithstanding any other
         provision in this Agreement, in no event shall any rights or
         obligations under this Agreement apply to Australia, New Zealand, or
         Papua New Guinea.

         2.4      INTEGRATION/CROSS PROMOTION/ADVERTISING REQUIREMENTS.

                  (A)    STANDARD INTEGRATION INTO MSN AND BASIC PROMOTION.
         Microsoft shall offer the MSN Health Section as a front page link on
         the MSN.com home page. As a front page link, the MSN Health Section
         will be promoted on the MSN Site in a manner equivalent to all other
         major topic specific offerings. This promotion may include without
         limitation, for as long as any front page link receives such
         promotion:

                         (I)    providing a front page link to the MSN Health
                  Section on the MSN.com home page.

                         (II)   displaying the MSN Health Section at the bottom
                  of Network Framework as one of the MSN services, for as long
                  as such listings include all front page links in the Network
                  Framework.

                         (III)  receiving general cross-linking across the MSN
                  Health Section (including the Health Channel pages on a
                  pro-rata basis with all other pages in the MSN Health
                  Section) and other MSN front page links.

                         (IV)   the Health Channel receiving an average of 2%
                  of the House Advertising Inventory in (with the specific type
                  of inventory to be in Microsoft's discretion), which shall in
                  all cases include no less than 125,000,000 impressions per
                  year, together with equal opportunity for the Health Channel
                  to participate in other advertising elements in the House
                  Advertising Inventory that are provided to all other front
                  page links, subject to Microsoft's standard selection
                  processes. WebMD will present to Microsoft (a) WebMD's
                  proposed advertisements to be placed in the Health Channel's
                  portion of the House Advertising Inventory specified herein,
                  and (b) WebMD's proposed promotional priorities for the
                  Health Channel and WebMD's proposed specific wording for such
                  promotions. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Microsoft reserves
                  final editorial discretion and approval over the
                  advertisements and promotions for the Health Channel
                  including those placed under this sub-Section (iv).

                         (V)    equal opportunity for the MSN Health Section to
                  participate in all limited-time editorial packages on the MSN
                  Site offered to other front page links. From time to time,
                  Microsoft shall develop a certain topical theme ("Editorial
                  Package") such as, by way of an example, "Technology,"
                  "Holiday," "Resolutions 99," and "Love Month," during which
                  time WebMD shall be given the opportunity to submit Health
                  Channel content relevant to the Editorial Package. Should
                  Microsoft, at its discretion, decide to accept the submitted
                  Health Channel content with the Editorial Package, it will
                  promote the Health Channel's content associated with the
                  Editorial Package.

                         (VI)   inclusion of a MSN Health Section content
                  module as a personalization option on the "personalize page"
                  in the current version of MSN, for so long as such feature
                  exists and beginning when Microsoft next has a reasonable
                  opportunity to modify the personalization platform in such
                  fashion in its sole discretion.

                         (VII)  in the next version of MSN Search, prioritized
                  inclusion of promotion and links to the MSN Health Section in
                  health-related searches, to the extent other front page links
                  are offered such prioritization.

                  (B)    ADDITIONAL PROMOTIONAL PROGRAMS. In addition to the
         basic promotion described above, Microsoft shall provide the Health
         Channel with the following additional promotional opportunities:

                         (I)    ADDITIONAL ADVERTISING INVENTORY. Microsoft
                  agrees to provide the Health Channel with an additional
                  average of 2% of the House Advertising Inventory (for a total
                  of at least an average of 4%) (with the specific type of
                  inventory to be in Microsoft's discretion), which shall in
                  all cases include no less than 125,000,000 impressions per
                  year. WebMD will present to Microsoft WebMD's proposed
                  advertisements to be placed in the Health Channel's portion
                  of the House Advertising Inventory specified herein.
                  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Microsoft reserves final
                  editorial discretion and approval over the advertisements for
                  the Health Channel including those placed under this
                  sub-Section (i).

                         (II)   PROMOTION OF HEALTH RELATED WEB EVENTS.
                  Microsoft agrees to promote to users of Windows Media Player
                  at least one Health Channel-related Web event per month
                  during the Term of this Agreement through the MSN Web Events
                  front page link and across other MSN front page links, for as
                  long as a MSN Web Events front page link exists. The amount
                  and nature of such promotion shall be at Microsoft's
                  discretion.

                         (III)  ADDITIONAL INTEGRATION WITH OTHER MSN
                  CHANNELS. Microsoft will endeavor to provide the Health
                  Channel with specific distribution opportunities with certain
                  MSN channels such as, by way of example, "Women Central,"
                  "Travel," and "Sports." The final nature of such distribution
                  opportunities for the Health Channel, if at all, will be
                  subject to discussion and final approval of Microsoft.

                         (IV)   SHOPPING AREA FOR HEALTH CHANNEL. Microsoft
                  agrees to provide a link from the health shopping area of the
                  MSN Shopping area to the MSN Health Section.

                  (C)    RELATIONSHIP OF HEALTH CHANNEL TO OTHER PARTS OF THE
         MSN HEALTH SECTION. For purposes of this Section 2.4, the Health
         Channel shall be treated equal to or better than any other third
         party, non-Microsoft affiliate, provider of content for the MSN Health
         Section.

                  (D)    MICROSOFT'S ADVERTISING ON THE WEBMD SITE. WebMD shall
         provide Microsoft with access to sufficient Advertising space on the
         WebMD Site as is commercially reasonably necessary to permit Microsoft
         to meet each of its Guarantees (e.g., First Year Guarantee, Section
         Year Guarantee, Third Year Guarantee, etc.) as set forth in Section
         12.2 below and the unlimited right to place Advertising in such
         Advertising space on the WebMD Site. During the thirty (30) days
         following the Execution Date the parties shall mutually agree on how
         to manage the available Advertising inventory on the WebMD Site and on

         amount of Advertising space on the WebMD Site that is equal to or
         greater than that provided on the Health Channel and shall accommodate
         all requests from Microsoft for additional Advertising space on the
         WebMD Site. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall WebMD be
         required to create new categories of Advertising space under this
         Section.

         related content, features, services, technology, etc. to * or any *
         affiliated companies, including without limitation * or *, for
         distribution on the Internet, without Microsoft's prior written
         consent, except that WebMD may, pursuant to an agreement in effect
         between WebMD and * as of the Execution Date, provide up to three page
         levels of co-branded, health-related content to * for distribution on
         the Internet. Further, in the event that WebMD enters into an agreement
         with any other third party to provide health-related content for
         distribution on the Internet, WebMD agrees to provide Microsoft with
         thirty (30) days prior written notice before the launch of such
         health-related content on the Internet, and WebMD shall not offer such
         third parties health-related content that has not also been previously
         or concurrently made available to the Health Channel.
    

                  (B)    ON MICROSOFT. Microsoft agrees that, except with
         regard to content provided by MSNBC and content provided by Microsoft
         or third parties pursuant to this Agreement, including Sections 2.1
         and 2.3 above and Sections 3.3 and 3.5 below, WebMD shall be the sole
         provider of health-related information on the Health Channel.

         2.6      USER INFORMATION.

                  (A)    OWNERSHIP/USE. Microsoft and WebMD shall jointly own
         any and all User Information (i) collected by WEBMD from Users of the
         Health Channel as well as Users of the WebMD Consumer Site whose use
         of the WebMD Site originated on the Health Channel or any MSN Site,
         (ii) relating to End User Members with Microsoft-sponsored WebMD
         Memberships, and (iii) relating to End User Members who receive WebMD
         Memberships through Microsoft or Microsoft distribution partners, and
         WebMD shall provide such User Information to Microsoft on a monthly
         basis in such format as reasonably requested by Microsoft. Likewise,
         Microsoft shall provide any User Information it collects on the Health
         Channel to WebMD on a monthly basis in such format as is reasonably
         requested by WebMD. WebMD may use the User Information during the Term
         of this Agreement solely for the purpose of fulfilling the product or
         service for which the information was collected, provided, however,
         that such information shall be treated in the same fashion as
         Confidential Information pursuant to Section 10 below and
         specifically, without limitation, shall not be provided to any third
         party nor used on behalf of any third party, including but not limited
         to, for promoting or advertising any third party, without Microsoft's
         prior written consent. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Microsoft hereby
         approves WebMD using and providing to third parties Aggregate
         Information to be used in research projects. Any other use of the User
         Information during the Term by WebMD shall be by mutual agreement of
         the parties. Upon termination of this Agreement, each party may retain
         the User Information collected pursuant to this Agreement and no party
         shall restrict the other's use in any way and WebMD shall provide to
         Microsoft all User Information pertaining to the MSN Users of the
         WebMD Health Communities (as defined in Section 3.7 below), provided
         that WebMD may not provide such User Information to any third party
         nor use such User Information on behalf of any third party, including
         but not limited to, for promoting or advertising any third party,
         without Microsoft's prior written consent. For the avoidance of doubt,
         except where the parties jointly use the User Information, each party
         shall be responsible for ensuring that its own use of the User
         Information complies with all User consent requirements, including but
         not limited to as provided in Section 2.6(b) below.

                  (B)    CONSENT. In addition to the foregoing, any collection,
         disclosure or use of Personal Information by WebMD shall be subject to
         the Users' consent, and the business practices and User privacy
         policies of the site from which it is collected (e.g., the Health
         Channel, an MSN Site, WebMD Consumer Site or Medical Professionals
         Section). The business practices and policies of each such site shall
         permit, as their default, WebMD to grant Microsoft the rights required
         by this Section 2.6, unless the User specifically requests otherwise,
         and in all cases shall comply with any applicable laws governing the
         collection, dissemination and use thereof. "Consent" as used in this
         Agreement shall mean the approval of an adult, and in the case of
         minor children, the approval of the child's parent or legal guardian.
         WebMD and Microsoft shall mutually agree on the Health Channel user
         interface for the collection of Personal Information. Microsoft shall
         determine the privacy policy for the Health Channel.

                  parties for the provision of healthcare related information
                  to MSNBC for the MSNBC Health Channel, at the natural
                  termination or expiration of each such contract (which shall
                  be determined under such contracts and as between MSNBC and
                  WebMD in MSNBC's sole discretion), MSNBC shall use
                  commercially reasonable efforts to replace such third party
                  healthcare related information with healthcare related
                  information provided by WebMD. For the avoidance of doubt,
                  content, features, and anything in those areas specified in
                  sub-Section 3.1(b)(ii)(A)-(C) above are not subject to

                         (VI)   MSNBC may request that WebMD cover certain
                  topics, content, features, events or other areas or material
                  for inclusion in the MSNBC Health Channel. If MSNBC makes
                  such a request in writing, WebMD shall respond within ten
                  (10) business days whether WebMD desires to provide such
                  content, features, events or other areas or material. If
                  WebMD agrees to provide such topics, content, features,
                  events or other areas or material, WebMD shall provide such
                  topics, content, features, events or other areas or material
                  for incorporation into the MSNBC Health Channel as soon as
                  commercially reasonable following such agreement but in no
                  event within more than forty-five (45) days from the time it
                  agrees to provide such topics, content, features, events or
                  other areas or material. If WebMD declines to provide the
                  topics, content, features, events or other areas or material
                  or fails to provide it within the requisite amount of time,
                  then MSNBC shall be free to provide the topics, content,
                  features, events or other areas or material (either directly
                  or through a third party). In addition to the foregoing,
                  WebMD shall incorporate any legal or other notices onto all
                  or any part that WebMD provides for the MSNBC Health Channel
                  that MSNBC in its sole discretion considers necessary, within
                  twenty-four (24) hours of MSNBC's written request. The
                  parties shall meet on a regular basis, but in no event less
                  frequently than once each calendar quarter to discuss the
                  MSNBC Health Section, the MSNBC Health Channel and the WebMD
                  Site, provided that the first such meeting shall take place
                  no later than sixty (60) business days from the Execution
                  Date, and further provided that in addition to any other
                  obligations it has to MSNBC, WebMD shall use reasonable
                  efforts to provide to MSNBC for incorporation into the MSNBC
                  Health Channel any topics, content, features, events or other
                  areas or material etc. that MSNBC suggests during such
                  meetings according to the same schedule as is set forth above
                  in this Section.

parties shall work together in good faith to do so. WebMD shall include the

technology under standard terms and conditions for such distribution; provided
that such Microsoft technology be Microsoft Outlook or such other Microsoft
technology designated by Microsoft. Without limitation, being the "sole
provider" means that WebMD shall not place, distribute, advertise, market, link

         either above the fold of a 640 x 480 screen size resolution with a
         standard browser configuration, or on the second screen (of a 640 x
         480 screen size resolution with a standard browser configuration), on
         each page of the WebMD Site, which MSN Module shall be in a form
         determined by Microsoft in its sole discretion. The MSN Module may be
         modified from time to time as determined by Microsoft in its sole
         discretion and WebMD shall replace any existing MSN Module with any
         such updated MSN Module within a reasonable time following Microsoft's
         notice of such modifications. The MSN Module may at a minimum include

         five (5) text links, and a single promotional text link, which text

         of what the MSN Module may look like appears in the mock-up attached
         hereto as Exhibit C. The MSN Module and any modification thereto shall
         be subject to Microsoft's written approval. WebMD's placement and use
         of the "Go to MSN" logo link shall be in accordance with the Logo
         Guidelines attached hereto as Exhibit D.

                  (B)    The only search service(s) included on the Health
         Channel shall be the search service(s) designated by Microsoft from
         time to time during the Term in its sole discretion, which may
         include, without limitation: (i) Microsoft's MSN Web Search as it
         exists from time to time during the Term or any part or successor
         thereof; (ii) WebMD's search service and technology as it exists from
         time to time during the Term or any part or successor thereof; (iii)
         any search service or technology provided by some third party; or (iv)
         any combination of (i), (ii) and (iii) immediately above. At
         Microsoft's sole discretion, Microsoft may create a combined search
         service for the Health Channel that incorporates WebMD's search
         services. In the event that Microsoft elects to create such a combined
         service, the parties shall work together in good faith to do so. At
         Microsoft's request, WebMD shall provide Microsoft with database
         mapping from technical disease names to common names for use in MSN
         Web Search. WebMD shall include the search service designated by
         Microsoft in the Health Channel.

         3.6      MICROSOFT ONLINE ID PROGRAM. WebMD agrees to test, evaluate,
and use, take sign ups for and accept the Ids for Microsoft's proprietary
authentication service ("Passport") on both the Health Channel and the WebMD
Site, and all of WebMD's existing profiling and authentication mechanisms will
also take sign ups for and accept the Ids for Passport. WebMD shall use
Passport in accordance with the terms of the Microsoft Online ID Evaluation
Program Agreement attached hereto as Exhibit E and such further standard terms
and conditions that are offered in addition to or as a replacement for those
currently contained in such agreement. The parties acknowledge and agree that
WebMD may accept other authentication mechanisms on the WebMD Site. WebMD
agrees, however, that Passport will be the only authentication mechanism
distributed (i.e., take sign ups) on the Health Channel and WebMD Consumer Site
other than WebMD's proprietary authentication mechanisms. WebMD's obligations
under this Section 3.6 shall extend to any localized WebMD Consumer Site, to
the extent that a localized version of Passport is available for the relevant
market.

         3.7    MSN COMMUNITIES. Microsoft agrees to migrate, as soon as
commercially feasible, users of the current Microsoft owned and moderated
health-related communities found within Microsoft's MSN Web Communities
channel, over to the WebMD health-related communities on the WebMD Site ("WebMD
Health Communities") provided that, for the avoidance of doubt, no party shall
have any obligations hereunder with respect to user-created communities in the
MSN Web Communities channel. WebMD shall create and manage only one section
devoted to health-related communities which shall be the WebMD Health
Communities and all health-related communities created and/or managed by WebMD
shall be part of the WebMD Health Communities. At all times during the Term the
WebMD Health Communities shall have no less than eighty (80) distinct
communities by the end of Year 1. Microsoft shall promote, as soon as
commercially feasible as determined by Microsoft in its sole discretion, the
WebMD Health Community from its MSN Web Communities channel by providing, among
other things, hypertext address links, equally prominent promotion with other
Microsoft-owned and moderated communities. WebMD agrees to promote non-health
related Microsoft-owned and moderated MSN Web Communities on the WebMD Site and
the Health Channel in a manner such that promotion of such communities shall be
as prominent and in all places as any promotion of any other comparable
non-health related communities, and otherwise where appropriate with the
content and context, on the WebMD Site and Health Channel respectively.

At a minimum, WebMD shall include on each page of the WebMD Health Communities
area a text link to the MSN Web Communities channel, the text of which shall be
mutually agreed upon. WebMD agrees that, as soon as commercially feasible, the
Health Channel Community shall be available to end users in a read-only format
as well as a participatory format, and that any Health Channel users who desire
to only read files in the Health Channel Community shall not be required to
formally join the Health Channel Community by filling out a user questionnaire.
WebMD shall incorporate the Network Frameworks on each WebMD Health
Communities' page served to users that originate from the Health Channel in
accordance with the SDK and the WebMD Health Communities shall otherwise be
presented to end users so that it resembles and functions like the non-health
related communities found within Microsoft's MSN Web Communities channel. For
purposes of clarity, the Health Channel shall include the WebMD Health
Communities. The provisions of this Section 3.7 shall apply to any localized
WebMD Consumer Site, to the extent that local MSN Web Communities are available
for the relevant market, and subject to the approval of the local MSN portal
manager. WebMD shall develop, maintain, and host those things necessary and
reasonably requested by Microsoft to implement the foregoing.

         3.8      OTHER MICROSOFT INTERNET SERVICES. Except as prevented by any
contracts between WebMD and third parties existing as of the Execution Date,
upon notice from Microsoft that any such service or technology is available for
distribution, WebMD agrees, as soon as commercially feasible, to prominently
implement on the WebMD Site, and prominently provide end users with access from
the WebMD Site to, each Microsoft Internet service and technology that is
available on the MSN Site, including, but not limited to, MSN Web Search,
Microsoft Chat, MSN Messenger Service, Hotmail, a Microsoft business,
e-commerce, communication service and technology, which includes a common
format and process for exchanging products, business information, promotional
information and other business data over the Internet, and a Microsoft web

web site creation and hosting, and all other Microsoft Internet services not
otherwise specifically addressed in other Sections of this Agreement that are
available on the MSN Site ("Other Microsoft Internet Services") pursuant to
Microsoft's standard user interface and distribution terms. To such end,
Microsoft shall provide WebMD with such materials, technology and support as it
routinely provides to other third parties distributing such technologies. In
the event that WebMD offers Other Microsoft Internet Services on the WebMD Site
in accordance with the foregoing, WebMD shall not promote any competing
technology on the WebMD Site, other than during a commercially reasonable
transition period for discontinuing any such promotion. WebMD's obligations
under this Section 3.8 are subject to WebMD's contractual obligations existing
as of the Effective Date, and shall extend to any localized WebMD Consumer
Site, to the extent that a localized version of the Other Microsoft Internet
Services is available for the relevant market. WebMD shall develop, maintain,
and host that which is necessary and reasonably requested by Microsoft to
implement the services and technologies specified in this Section 3.8. Upon
mutual agreement, the parties shall work together and with appropriate third
parties to create appropriate industry standards.

         4.1      USE OF THE MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM. WebMD agrees, at
WebMD's expense, to make Microsoft technology, including the Microsoft
Technology Platform, WebMD's primary technology platform for developing,
staging, operating and maintaining both the front and back ends of the Health
Channel and the WebMD Site in accordance with this Section 4.

         4.2      MCS CONSULTING AGREEMENT. In conjunction with its obligations
in Section 4.1 above, WebMD agrees to convert, at WebMD's expense and within
one year of the Effective Date, any current operating systems and other
technology identified pursuant to the MCS review described herein used in
developing, staging, operating, and maintaining the WebMD Site over to a
PC-based platform that uses relevant Microsoft technology, including the
Microsoft Technology Platform products. Such conversion shall be sufficiently
comprehensive so that the majority of WebMD's systems shall utilize Microsoft
technology, including the Microsoft Technology Platform products, and will
consist of an architectural review of existing systems, and the development and
implementation of a transition plan in conjunction with Microsoft Consulting
Services ("MCS") as further set forth in the MCS agreement and work order
("Work Order") attached hereto as Exhibit F (collectively "MCS Agreement").
WebMD agrees to engage MCS pursuant to the MCS Agreement to assist WebMD in
conducting the architectural review, developing a transition plan, and
implementing such transition plan. This conversion shall include integration of


                                      17
>PAGE>   18
   
[*] CERTAIN INFORMATION IN THIS EXHIBIT HAS BEEN OMITTED AND FILED SEPARATELY

THE OMITTED PORTIONS.
    


Microsoft products that contain substantively similar functionality as the
following combination of products: Internet Information Server, Site Server,
SQL Server, Windows NT Server, and Microsoft's messaging technologies,
including updates and upgrades thereto. WebMD and Microsoft agree to commence
the architectural review as more fully described in the Work Order, within
forty five (45) days of the Effective Date and to complete the architectural
review within forty five (45) days of commencement. Based on the outcome of the
architectural review, the parties shall agree within one additional week on a
transition schedule ("Transition Schedule"), which shall include at a minimum
an agreed upon additional MCS work order ("Transition Schedule Work Order")
detailing the parties' responsibilities under the Transition Schedule. The
transition shall be completed no later than 360 days following the Effective
Date, unless the parties agree otherwise in the Transition Schedule. In the
event that any delays caused by MCS result in a delay in any deadline or
schedule described herein, such deadline or schedule shall be revised to take
into account the MCS-caused delays.

         4.3      PROMOTION OF MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM. WebMD agrees
that, once the conversion process described in Section 4.2 above has been
completed, Microsoft may reference the WebMD Site in promotional and marketing
materials as a showcase or reference site for Microsoft technology used by
WebMD. Further, WebMD agrees to prominently promote the Microsoft technology,
including the Microsoft Technology Platform products, used by WebMD by
prominently mentioning such products in WebMD marketing materials including
those aimed at physicians and consumers, including without limitation in press
releases, sales literature, and promotional brochures. Prior to the completion
of the conversion process described in Section 4.2 above, WebMD agrees to
prominently promote the Microsoft technology, including the Microsoft
Technology Platform products, as preferred by WebMD by prominently mentioning
such products in WebMD marketing materials including those aimed at physicians
and consumers, including without limitation in press releases, sales
literature, and promotional brochures.

         4.4      MCS CONSULTANT EXPENSE. Notwithstanding anything to the
contrary in Section 4.1 and 4.2 above and the attached MCS Agreement, its
attached Work Order or any subsequent Work Order, in exchange for all amounts
paid to Microsoft by WebMD for Microsoft Consulting Services under Section 4.1
and 4.2, the MCS Agreement and all Work Orders, Microsoft shall provide over
the Term of the Agreement Advertising, marketing and/or promotional programs
for content and/or services on the WebMD Site by Microsoft or any party
referred by Microsoft in a total value of no less than the amount, matched
dollar for dollar, of the payments made by WebMD for MCS Consulting Services up
to two million five hundred thousand dollars ($2,500,000). For the avoidance of
doubt, WebMD will be responsible for all reasonable travel and associated
expenses incurred in the delivery of all MCS services, including, but not
limited to, the consultant hours and additional consultant hours specified
above.

         4.5      WEBMD ADOPTION AND PROMOTION OF MICROSOFT TECHNOLOGIES. WebMD
shall adopt, and Microsoft and WebMD will work together to promote and
establish, Microsoft's interoperability framework for healthcare ("MICROSOFT
HEALTHCARE INTEROPERABILITY FRAMEWORK"). The Microsoft Healthcare
Interoperability Framework is a multilevel standard designed to provide
interoperability between applications and systems across desktops PCs, servers,
networks, and legacy systems in the healthcare industry. The Microsoft
Healthcare Interoperability Framework includes the Active X for Healthcare
standard and BizTalk (which together include components of COM, DCOM, COM+, and
XML or other enhancements).

         4.6      ELECTRONIC COMMERCE PLATFORMS. Over an agreed-upon period of
time, Microsoft will use reasonable efforts to facilitate dialog among other
key industry partners on the development of multiple electronic commerce
platforms that bridge Physicians, Hospitals, Payors, Employers and Suppliers
and the integration of such platforms with the Medical Professionals Section's
functionality.

         4.7      DISTRIBUTED APPLICATIONS. Microsoft will use reasonable
efforts to encourage its major ISV alliance partners to develop key distributed
applications based on Microsoft technologies that would operate in conjunction
with the functionality and content of the WebMD Site, including the development
of distributed applications that would reside within the employer domain and
that would provide enhanced positioning to WebMD as an intranet-based offering.

than two levels down from the top level page of the Medical Professionals
Section, that provides tips and background information about Microsoft
technology and exclusively promotes Microsoft technologies and Microsoft
authorized independent software vendors. The Healthcare Technology section
shall be located above-the-fold (at a screen resolution of 640 x 480 with a
standard browser configuration) wherever placed. Further, WebMD agrees to
prominently integrate links to the Healthcare Technology section from other
parts of the WebMD Site where technology in the healthcare industry is
discussed. The content, layout and presentation of the Healthcare Technology
section shall be determined by Microsoft, provided that WebMD shall have the
right to approve such content, layout and presentation, which approval shall

         6.2      CO-MARKETING COMMITMENT. Microsoft shall itself, or shall
ensure that the Authorized Transferees (as defined in the Master Agreement
entered into as of April 10, 1999 between the parties) or other third parties ,
provide, during the period beginning on the Effective Date and ending on the
second year anniversary of the Effective Date, a combined total value of no
less than fifty million dollars ($50,000,000), and WebMD shall provide a total
of no less than the same amount matched dollar for dollar, on Advertising,
marketing and/or promotional programs for content and/or services reflecting
the combined brands of WebMD and the other parties' contributing money to each
such program and approved in advance by all of the parties' contributing money
to each such program. For example, such programs may be co-presented by WebMD
and MSN, or Web MD and Microsoft, or WebMD and Authorized Transferees, or WebMD
and a Microsoft independent software vendor ("ISV"), or WebMD, MSN and an
Authorized Transferee, etc. All such programs shall be presented in offline
(i.e., not on the Internet) arenas, e.g., on air, trade shows, print medium,
etc., or online as mutually agreed between the parties. The parties agree that
fifty percent (50%) of the amounts spent under this Section shall be devoted to
demand-generation marketing campaigns for those specific Microsoft distribution
partners identified by Microsoft.

7.        MICROSOFT-SPONSORED WEBMD MEMBERSHIPS 

          7.1     GENERAL. Microsoft agrees to sponsor up to five (5) million

Memberships in calendar year 2000, pursuant to the terms and conditions set
forth in this Section 7. As used herein, the term "sponsor" means that
Microsoft will pay WebMD the Base Membership Fee for each such WebMD
Membership, in accordance with Section 12.4 below. If, at any time during the
Term of this Agreement, however, WebMD no longer implements a subscription
revenue model, or ceases to engage in product upsell or ecommerce transactions,
Microsoft and WebMD will make a commensurate modification to the obligation set
forth in this Section 7.1, which modification shall take into consideration the
loss of these revenue streams and Microsoft's ability to recoup amounts paid
hereunder, provided that in no circumstances shall Microsoft's obligation set
forth in this Section 7.1 be increased beyond the five (5) million WebMD
Membership Months contemplated herein.

          7.2     DISTRIBUTION PLAN. The parties agree to cooperate in good
faith to develop a mutually agreed upon plan for promoting, offering, and
distributing the Microsoft-sponsored WebMD Memberships ("DISTRIBUTION PLAN").

                  term, condition or covenant made by WebTV under this
                  Agreement, other than those contained in Section 10, and

                  10. Further, WebMD shall be entitled to terminate this
                  Agreement solely with respect to the MSNBC Health Section, at
                  any time if MSNBC is in material breach of any warranty,
                  representation, term, condition or covenant made by MSNBC
                  under this Agreement, other than those contained in Section

                  Section 10.

                         (II)   Correspondingly, in addition to any other
                  rights and/or remedies that such party may have under the

                  representation, term, condition or covenant made by WebMD
                  under this Agreement solely with regard to the WebTV Health
                  Channel, other than those contained in Section 10, and fails

                  regard to WebTV confidential information), and neither MSNBC
                  nor Microsoft shall have a right of termination with regard
                  to any such breach. Further, in addition to any other rights
                  and/or remedies that such party may have under the
                  circumstances, MSNBC shall be entitled to terminate this
                  Agreement solely with respect to the MSNBC Health Section, at

                  representation, term, condition or covenant made by WebMD
                  under this Agreement solely with regard to the MSNBC Health

                  nor Microsoft shall have a right of termination with regard
                  to any such breach. For purposes of clarification, nothing
                  herein shall limit Microsoft's right of termination under
                  Section 3.3(a) above with regard to any material breach by

         13.4     EFFECT OF TERMINATION.

                  (A)    Upon termination, and subject to Section 13.3(b) above,
         each Party shall, at the other Party's direction, return or certify
         destruction of Confidential Information of such other Party. No Party
         shall be liable to the other for damages of any sort resulting solely
         from terminating this Agreement in accordance with its terms. If
         Microsoft terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 13.3 on any
         date that is more than ninety (90) days after the Effective Date, then
         WebMD shall pay Microsoft all sums due and owing as of the date of
         termination, and further shall pay Microsoft two additional quarterly
         installments on the Advance Payments set forth in Section 12.1(a) or

         equal to two times the average amount

         Promptly upon execution of the Agreement, WebMD shall provide to
Microsoft proof evidencing full compliance with the insurance requirements set
forth herein. WebMD shall notify Microsoft in writing if WebMD's insurance
coverage is to be canceled or materially altered so as to not comply with the
requirements of this section with such notice to provided be no later than the
later of (i) at least thirty (30) days in advance of the cancellation or (ii)
twenty-four (24) hours after WebMD receives notice of the cancellation.

18.      GENERAL PROVISIONS

         18.1     INDEPENDENT CONTRACTORS. The Parties are independent
contractors with respect to each other, and nothing in this Agreement shall be
construed as creating an employer-employee relationship, a partnership, agency
relationship or a joint venture between the Parties.

         18.2    GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of
the State of New York as though entered into by New York residents and to be
performed entirely within the State of New York. The parties consent to
exclusive jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts sitting in New
York. In any action or suit to enforce any right or remedy under this Agreement
or to interpret any provision of this Agreement, the prevailing Party shall be
entitled to recover its costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees.

         18.3     ASSIGNMENT. No party may transfer, assign or sublicense this
Agreement, or any rights and/or obligations hereunder, whether by contract or
by operation of law, except with the express written consent of the other
parties, and any attempted transfer, assignment or sublicense by a party in
violation of this Section shall be void and shall constitute a material default
and breach of this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, an "transfer"
under this Section shall be deemed to include, without limitation, the
following: (a) a merger or any other combination of an entity with another
party where the shareholders of WebMD prior to such merger or combination own
less than sixty-five percent (65%) of the merged or combined entity after such
merger or combination; (b) any transaction or series of transactions whereby a
third party acquires direct or indirect power to control the management and
policies of WebMD or Microsoft, as applicable, whether through the acquisition
of voting securities, by contract, or otherwise; (c) the sale or other transfer
of any part of the business obligated or benefiting from this Agreement or any
other substantial portion of assets (whether in a single transaction or series
of transactions), or (d) the transfer of any rights or obligations in the
course of a liquidation or other similar reorganization of an entity. Subject
to the provisions of this Section, this Agreement shall be binding upon and
inure to the benefit of each party and their respective successors and assigns.
Any transfer, assignment or sublicense approved by a party will at a minimum
require that the party to which this Agreement, or any rights and/or
obligations hereunder, is transferred, assigned or sublicensed succeeds the
transferring, assigning, or sublicensing

Exhibit A-1
Health Channel
Content Specifications

A.       General Content Requirements:


1.       Layout of the Health Channel and Home Page of the MSN Health Section:
WebMD shall ensure that the layout and presentation of materials within the
Health Channel, including the amount and placement of advertising and all other
space, will be consistent with the Network Frameworks and SDK as further
described in this Agreement and otherwise as mutually approved between the
parties. For the avoidance of doubt, all WebMD materials available to end users
whose access to such materials originates on the Health Channel or on any MSN
Site or page thereof shall be displayed to such end user in the Network
Framework. WebMD shall include, at a minimum, a 468 x 60 pixel banner space at
the top of every page so that it is visible above-the-fold at a screen
resolution of 640 x 480 with a standard browser configuration. Microsoft and
WebMD shall work together to determine the layout and presentation of the home
page of the MSN Health Section so that it is consistent with the layout and
presentation of the Health Channel and all other aspects of the MSN Health
Section, subject to Microsoft's final approval.

2.       Content for the Health Channel: Except as otherwise specifically
provided in this Agreement, all content, materials, features, technology,
services, etc. included by WebMD within the Health Channel (a) shall be the
sole responsibility of WebMD and shall be developed and maintained in
accordance with Section B of this Exhibit A-1, (b) shall be relevant to the
topic and particular section of the Health Channel in which they are included,
(c) shall be of high quality in all ways, including with respect to editorial
content and volume, as determined by comparison to other sources of similar
information available on the Internet and in no event shall the Health Channel
contain a smaller volume of pages as the WebMD Consumer Site contains as of the
Effective Date of this Agreement, (d) shall be comparable or superior to the
health related content available on the top five (5) ranked (by Media Metrix)
Internet portal/network sites with respect to at a minimum the following
factors: (i) substance, quality, volume, (ii) breadth and depth of content,
(iii) tools and functionality, (iv) personalization, (v) appeal and ease of use
of user interface, (e) shall be updated by WebMD (A) regularly so as to meet
the requirements of sub-sections (b), (c) and (d) above and end-users
preferences, including as further described in this Exhibit A-1, and (B) daily
to keep the content new and interesting, and (f) subject to the foregoing
requirements in (a)-(e), the Health Channel shall be the same or substantially
similar as (i.e., in substance, a mirror of) that which is available to end
users accessing the WebMD Consumer Site at any time during the Term of this
Agreement. Without limitation, WebMD shall include in the Health Channel all
material and content contained in the WebMD Consumer Site, including, but not
limited to, all material and content provided to WebMD for the WebMD Consumer
Site by third parties subject to the following: (x) this requirement shall not
apply to material and content that may not be provided to WebMD as a result of
contracts in effect as of the Execution Date, (y) with respect to contracts
with third parties entered into after the Execution Date, WebMD shall obtain
all rights necessary to include such third parties material and content on the
Health Channel, and (z) with respect to material and content not included in
the Health Channel as a result of (x) above, WebMD shall secure and include
equivalent (e.g., those elements described in sub-Section (d) above) material
and content for the Health Channel. Dispute Mechanism: In the event that
Microsoft, MSNBC or WebTV reasonably believes that WebMD is in material breach
of sub-Sections (b) and/or (c) above with respect to the Health Channel or any
part(s) thereof, Microsoft will notify WebMD and WebMD shall notify Microsoft
within three (3) business days whether WebMD agrees or disagrees with
Microsoft, MSNBC or WebTV. If WebMD agrees with Microsoft, MSNBC or WebTV and
the parties mutually agree on what modifications shall be made, then WebMD
shall have forty five (45) days to make such modification and bring the Health
Channel or the relevant part(s) into compliance with such sub-sections. In the
event that WebMD disagrees with Microsoft, MSNBC or WebTV or the parties do not
mutually agree on what modifications should be made, the parties shall mutually
agree on an independent third party to review the Health Channel's, or such
part(s)'s, compliance with such sub-Sections. If such independent third party
determines that the Health Channel or any part does not meet the requirements
of such sub-Sections, Microsoft shall have the right to provide or obtain from
any other source replacement content, features, technology, services, etc. and
at Microsoft's, MSNBC's or WebTV's request as appropriate WebMD shall host such
replacement content, features, technology, services etc. as part of the Health
Channel. For the avoidance

of doubt, Microsoft, MSNBC and/or WebTV may opt to include such replacement
content, features, technology, services, etc. as part of the non-Health Channel
section of the MSN Health Section.

3.       Disclaimer: WebMD shall ensure that the Health Channel shall include a
prominently placed welcome notice to all parties that enter the Health Channel
that includes the following (or such other disclaimer as may be provided by
Microsoft from time to time): "We hope that you find the materials in this
service to be a helpful source of information about health-related topics.
While we endeavor to keep this information accurate and current, you should
keep in mind that our information may contain errors or be incomplete in some
respects. Most importantly, information about health and medical matters should
not be confused with health or medical advice, which is ultimately an opinion
or recommendation as to the proper course of action based on the facts of your
specific circumstances. These materials cannot provide you with health or
medical advice: only your health care provider can do that. The information
contained in this web site is not a substitute for medical advice. Please
consult your health care provider before beginning any health related program."

4.       References to the Channel: In creating the Health Channel from the
WebMD Consumer Site, WebMD shall (a) revise any references that are made in the
Health Channel to the WebMD Consumer Site to refer instead to the Health
Channel; and (b) obtain Microsoft's prior written approval for those and other
references made by WebMD to the Health Channel (e.g., on the Health Channel
itself or on the WebMD Site).

5.       Links. WebMD shall not include any links from within the Health
Channel to the WebMD Site without Microsoft's prior written approval. WebMD
shall include links from the Health Channel to other MSN properties upon
request by Microsoft.

B.       The WebMD Development Process

In general, the WebMD observes the development process, strategy, content,
features, and functionality set forth in this Subsection B with regard to the
WebMD Site, and WebMD shall observe the same development process, strategy,
content, features, and functionality with regard to the Health Channel except as
otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement.

Outline of process:

Marketing or user feature idea.
Research and testing of the proposed initiatives.
Design concepts and more testing.
Formal specifications & scheduling.
Implementation and testing.
Release.
Regular reviews & updates.

WebMD usually observes a 60 to 90 day formal schedule for updating our online
service with either new features or improvements that have gone through the
above process. Our list of prospective additions is usually longer than what
can be implemented on the next release. This allows WebMD to begin planning for
additional releases past the nearest one on the horizon.

A big component of how WebMD approaches new features is through market research
and testing. Given the competition for space in each release, it is essential
only those features which have been tested for user acceptance, etc. make it to
the release stage. This focus on testing also allows for flexibility in
scheduling new features. If a new feature set appears and needs to be moved up
the list because of encouraging test results, our development process allows
for the addition of the new item. Conversely, if a feature is planned but does
not test well, then the latitude exists to drop it and consider other things.

For an individual, the complexity of consumer healthcare devolves into four
spheres: 1). Multiple roles; 2). The ongoing need for information from a
variety of sources on a wide array of subjects delivered on a customized basis;
3). The diminution of traditional sources and authorities (e.g. doctors and
nurses); 4). The corresponding rise of a feeling that, in self-defense, an
individual needs to assert themselves to get the best results.

At the household level the key decision-maker for consumer health is a woman
30's-50's who is dealing with a number of health issues both major and minor on
a weekly/monthly basis. Our perspective (driven by our experience as well as
research) on this person is that she acts as the primary actor for herself as
well as an intermediary for a circle of dependent actors (spouse, children,
parents, friends, etc.) who look to her for information.

Obviously, the use of the Internet to deliver healthcare experiences and
information to consumers could be a huge boon. In our opinion, this has not
happened yet. The typical approach has either been heavily content driven (put
a lot of content and references online) or community oriented (start a message
board). However, the simple question of what spectrum of information,
connections with other people, and services do healthcare consumers want and
need has not been addressed yet in an integrated fashion.

Summary of the Service

"There is a place where people come together to find information and discuss
important health issues with their family and community. A place to share
experiences with others and with informed professionals and to find resources"
"WebMD is that place."

WebMD's strategy will be to build a healthcare portal that is "the place to
be." The idea is that of a health place that is extremely targeted and
informative yet reassuring and comforting to a consumer. It signifies "home",
"trust", "stickiness", and a starting point for all healthcare interactions. It
also fits with the idea of a specific, personalized home page/health service
that builds over time since the strategy of personalization is to create a
barrier to exit for members.

The overall tone, look, and feel of the site will be designed to match the type
of traffic that will be hitting that particular part of the service. For
example, if someone is visiting the unregistered part of the service, and is
not a member, the look and feel will be geared to an upbeat, almost spritely
approach. It will not be quite as fluffy and Cosmopolitan-like as a Thrive, but
it will not be somber and depressing like some of the other more intense health
sites. Conversely, if it is someone who is going directly to a deeper tier area
(Breast cancer), they will be presented with a slightly more serious approach
than the generalized part of the service. For registered members, the
personalized home page will be very warm, approachable and homelike.

Within the WebMD service, the consumer health portal will have its own name,
positioning and branding and yet will link back and support the overall WebMD
branding.

The overall construction of the site will be comprised of 5 tiers. The
outermost tier (T1) represents our audience development tactics that will find
potential members of the service, attract them to the service (T2), register
them (T3-T5), and then keep them over time (T3-T5).

The T1 methods WebMD will use to attract audiences to the service will include
on-air calls to action (e.g., the CNN relationship); PR; relationships with
other offline aggregators (support groups, non-profits); selective purchases of
targeted portal banners; affiliations with other health oriented sites, USENET
groups, bulletin boards, etc.

Tiers 2-5 (T2-T5) represent the actual service itself. In general, the
construction of the service should be in such a way as to provide a landing pad
for the various types of traffic the service will receive and convert it into
active members. Secondly, the service should provide an easy point of entry for
returning existing members. Lastly, the goal of all four tiers (T2-T5) should
be to always obtain more information from the member so as to deliver a more
personalized service.

T2 is the "general" part of the service. It does not require registration. It
casts the widest net for new members as the audience feeds it will receive will
be broadly distributed in their interests. It rewards visitors by providing a
variety of content and references (to quickly answer questions), quick search
capabilities of internal resources as well as selected parts of the internet
("The best health search on the planet"), teasers on events (a variety of chats
with experts and famous health care personalities), and access to locator
services (find a doctor, etc..). It invites people to join to receive more
information, periodic updates, personalized service, etc.

T3 is the registration-lite portion of the service. The goal will be to get
people to register (screen name, password, e-mail address) for a content or
news feed, message board(s), event(s) (chat, streaming video event), updates,
etc.. The approach is low-level and non-threatening. It should be seen as an
easy entry method to start a personalization dialog with subsequent
interactions and follow-up messaging. From an audience development standpoint,
there may be several hundred external T1 calls to action that immediately
direct people to T3 and bypass entry through T2. An example would be to market
a chat with the world's expert on HIV therapeutics through a spot on CNN, a
posting on an event board, and listings in newspaper and TV Guide. The call to
action would put the prospective members into the T3 part of the service (e.g.
the event) versus pushing them through T2.

T4 is registration heavy and probably has our hardest core, most active
members. They have arrived to this level by extensive use of personalization
and repeat usage of the service. They may have come in through T2, T3
migration, or directly through registration in one of many intensive,
specialized services. An example of a T2, T3 bypass strategy here would be
working with the American Diabetes Association (ADA) to provide a specialized
information and community service to their members. The members attracted
through this method would go directly to T4 diabetes.

T5 is a sub-section of T4 in that this could be a group that subscribes to or
pays for additional services and benefits.

In summary, the goal with the five tiers is to attract potential audiences and
have them become registered members. The tactics will be to provide multiple
points of entry that are best suited for the groups WebMD will be attracting.
Once someone has registered with the service, the goal then becomes
personalizing the service to increase retention and improve financial returns
through market research, targeted sponsorship, and e-commerce opportunities. Of
course, a consistent thread of thought running through this is a focus and
emphasis on privacy protection and trust.

C. Metrics

1. Customer Satisfaction: WebMD's goal is that the WebMD Consumer Site will be
the third ranked health site by December 31, 1999, the second ranked consumer
health site by July 31, 2000, and the first ranked consumer health site by
December 31, 2000, as measured against the health sections of other Internet
portal sites and general consumer health sites on the Internet. WebMD will
monitor customer satisfaction under this paragraph 1 using quantitative
research reported every six months starting on the date that is six months from
the Effective Date, which research shall measure all important customer
metrics, including, but not limited to: awareness, image, satisfaction and
likelihood to actually use. WebMD will include additional customer metrics at
Microsoft's request, and no metric once measured may be removed without the
mutual agreement of the parties.

2. Pages Viewed. By December 31, 1999 the MSN Health Section will have an
average number of pages viewed per unique user per month that is equal to or
above the average number of pages viewed for health sections of other Internet
portal sites and other Internet health sites, as determined by Media Matrix (or
some other mutually agreed upon industry analyst). By mutual agreement this
metric may be changed for another measure of User involvement on the MSN Health
Section as compared to other health sites and sections on competitive networks
and the Internet.

3. Focus Group Research. WebMD will conduct focus group research once each 6
months of each Year and will conduct usability research prior to each release
(e.g., T1, T2, T3, etc.) of the Health Channel. WebMD will share the results of
this research with Microsoft, and WebMD and Microsoft will mutually agree to a
plan and schedule to implement findings from this research that are
commercially reasonable to implement to improve the offerings of the Health
Channel.

4. Failure to Meet Metrics. In the event that WebMD fails to meet any of the
obligations in the Metrics section of this Exhibit A-1, the parties shall meet
within twenty (20) business days of a notice from any party. At such meeting,
WebMD shall present a plan for compliance, including the timeframe therefore,
and Microsoft shall approve such plan or suggest an alternative plan. If the
parties fail to reach agreement on a plan for compliance (either as proposed by
WebMD or Microsoft), WebMD will have 120 days from the meeting to comply. If
WebMD fails to comply within such time frame (or within the timeframe of any
agreed upon plan for compliance), the Health Channel may be reduced by
Microsoft down to a minimum of 50% of the MSN Health Section at Microsoft's
discretion, and Microsoft will have the option to fill the non-Health Channel
sections of the MSN Health Section with any programming, content, or
partnerships that Microsoft considers appropriate in its sole discretion.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, nothing herein shall be deemed to limit any
remedy either party may have under this Agreement or otherwise.

Technical Specifications


Network Framework/In Service Promotion Requirements. WebMD shall incorporate
the Network Frameworks on each page within the Health Channel in accordance
with the MSN.COM Software Development Kit. Microsoft may modify the Network
Framework in its sole discretion, and WebMD shall implement such modifications
pursuant to the terms of the SDK within the same time frame as required for
other channels within the MSN Site. WebMD shall also comply with the style
guidelines and other applicable terms set forth in the MSN.COM SDK in creating
the Health Channel, and WebMD shall incorporate the In Service Promotion Box on
each page within the Health Channel in the manner provided by Microsoft. All
traffic will be redirected from health.msn.com (or such other URL(s) as may
ultimately be allocated to the Health Channel) to WebMD's servers where the
Health Channel's fully Frameworked pages will be served (as described above);
provided that Microsoft may opt in its discretion to host all or any part of
the Health Channel by giving WebMD thirty (30) days written notice of each
exercise of its option; and further provided that WebMD will provide all such
reasonable support and assistance as is necessary to enable Microsoft to so
host by the end of the thirty (30) day notice period or such other period as is
mutually agreed by the parties. Microsoft requires that WebMD maintain certain
minimum standards for connectivity and availability (these requirements may be
updated by Microsoft from time to time by written notice from Microsoft to
WebMD, and WebMD shall implement such modifications within 30 days following
such notice):

All pages of the Health Channel must begin loading quickly (within 5 seconds on
a 28.8bps modem measured as a rolling weekly average).

All pages of the Health Channel must be reachable/available 99.8% of the time,
subject to reasonable regularly scheduled maintenance of which Microsoft is
notified in writing on a monthly basis at least five (5) business days in
advance of each calendar month. Such notice shall include at a minimum all work
to be done and the estimated down time. 

WebMD's servers must be capable of handling all traffic that the Health Channel
will send WebMD, and in any case no less than a minimum of 7 million page-views
per week as of the Effective Date and at all times during the Term, which such
number of page views shall increase (but not decrease without Microsoft's
approval) at a rate equal to that necessary to accommodate traffic resulting
from the increased traffic to the MSN Site on a month to month basis, and shall
at a minimum be no less than 14 million by the first day of Year 3 and 21
million by the first day of Year 5.

Domain Name. Microsoft will register and maintain domain names for the Health
Channel. WebMD will insure that the domain name specified by Microsoft is
displayed in the user's browser URL window when a user is accessing any part of
the Health Channel.

Statistical and Other Reporting.
WebMD agrees to provide page view, unique user reporting and other statistical
reporting for the Health Channel, as specified by Microsoft in writing from
time to time under this Agreement. Such information shall be recorded on a
calendar monthly basis. WebMD shall provide such information to Microsoft
within seven (7) days of the end of each calendar month. WebMD shall have 30
days to implement any changes in such reporting requirements. As an
alternative, WebMD agrees to incorporate Microsoft's WebStats technology on the
WebMD servers used to host the Health Channel for the purpose of statistical
tracking of users on the Health Channel. WebMD shall provide Microsoft with
monthly system maintenance schedule as provided in Section 1 of this Exhibit
A-2. WebMD shall provide Microsoft with a daily and also a weekly content
refresh schedule, which such schedule shall be provided in writing at least
forty-eight (48) hours in advance of the planned refresh time.

Browser Viewing. WebMD agrees that the Health Channel, as served by WebMD
servers, will be easily viewable on all popular browsers, including but not
limited to Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator and WebTV. Also, users of
Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Unix systems should all be able to view pages
served by WebMD. (A complete list of required browser and platform support is
contained in the MSN SDK currently found at

http://partner.msn.com). In no event will WebMD make any technology decision
that renders the content viewing experience of Internet Explorer users on the
Health Channel to be inferior to the viewing experience of users elsewhere on
the MSN Site.

Ad Server. WebMD shall comply with Microsoft's specifications to configure the
Health Channel to call the ad server(s) specified by Microsoft to display
Advertising provided by Microsoft under this Agreement.

Service and Support. WebMD will follow the procedures and provide the
information set forth below in the event of any site failure(s) or decline(s)
in performance. The parties shall work together to expand the procedures set
forth below within ninety (90) days of the Effective Date as reasonably
necessary to ensure that Microsoft is notified of all site failure(s) or
decline(s) in performance.

WebMD shall notify Microsoft within thirty (30) minutes of any site outages.
WebMD will send such notification to a an email address or alias and
phone/pager # designated by Microsoft. In the event of a system outage, WebMD
will post and serve to users attempting to reach the Health Channel a message
page in all ways mutually acceptable to both parties which such message page
will be posted within one (1) hour of WebMD discovering the outage and shall
remain in place until such outage has ceased. WebMD and Microsoft shall
mutually agree on a escalation process which shall include at a minimum
additional email, phone and pager contacts, as appropriate, for escalation of
site problems between the parties. During any site failure or decline in
performance, WebMD shall give Microsoft regular notification of the status of
the problem and the problem resolution activities until the situation has
ceased. The frequency of the notification will depend on the severity of the
problem with more regular notice being given for a more sever problem.
Following resolution of any site failure or decline in performance, WebMD will
provide Microsoft with reports detailing the fault or problem events on a
bi-weekly or monthly basis as determined by Microsoft in each situation.
Following the resolution of any site failure or decline in performance, WebMD
will provide Microsoft with a report(s) of all remedial actions taken and
preventive measures taken to avoid similar fault conditions or problems in the
future.

All bug fixes and site changes shall be completed within a reasonable
period of time under the circumstances of each situation and WebMD shall
provide Microsoft with a report of all material fixes and changes on a monthly
basis. WebMD shall provide Microsoft with all assistance needed by Microsoft to
provide end users with information about service, performance, bug fixes,
content updates and any other area concerning the Health Channel, including but
not limited to answers to frequently asked questions and service notices.

In the event that WebMD fails to meet any of the obligations in this Service
and Support section (including any expanded obligations) of this Exhibit A-2,
the parties shall meet within twenty (20) business days of a notice from any
party. At such meeting, WebMD shall present a plan for compliance with the
above service and support requirements (including any expanded obligations)
including the timeframe therefore and Microsoft shall approve such plan or
suggest an alternative plan. If the parties fail to reach agreement on an
alternative plan, WebMD shall have sixty (60) days from the meeting to comply
with the above service and support requirements (including any expanded
obligations); provided that if WebMD fails to comply, Microsoft shall be
released from its obligations to meet any and all Guarantees under Section 12.2
(e.g., the First Year Guarantee, Second Year Guarantee, Third Year Guarantee,
etc.) for the Year in which the failure first occurs.

proportions, colors, elements, etc., or animate, morph or otherwise distort its
perspective or two-dimensional appearance.

7.       WebMD may not display the Logos on any site that disparages Microsoft 
or its products or services, infringes any Microsoft intellectual property or
other rights, or violates any law of any jurisdiction.

Microsoft's logos or trademarks. Microsoft reserves the right in its sole
discretion to terminate or modify permission to display the Logos at any time.

Exhibit F
MCS Agreement and Work Order



MICROSOFT MASTER CONSULTING SERVICES AGREEMENT

This Microsoft Master Consulting Services Agreement ("Agreement") is made as of
the Effective Date indicated below by and between Microsoft Corporation, a
Washington corporation, and WebMD, Inc., a Georgia, corporation ("Customer").

This Agreement sets forth the general terms and conditions under which
Microsoft Corporation, either on its own behalf or through one or more
divisions or, for services to be provided outside of the United States,
subsidiaries (collectively, "Microsoft"), will provide consulting services to
Customer and its Affiliates. Microsoft agrees that any of Customer's Affiliates
shall have the right (but not the obligation) to submit Work Orders to
Microsoft under the terms and conditions of this Agreement. All references to
"Customer" in this Agreement shall be deemed to include the Affiliate placing
the Work Order. Such Work Orders shall be subject to the terms and conditions
of this Agreement and as to such Work Orders, the Affiliate becomes "Customer"
hereunder. "Affiliate" means any person, partnership, joint venture,
corporation or other form of enterprise, domestic or foreign, including, but
not limited to, subsidiaries, which directly or indirectly Control, are
Controlled by, or are under common Control with Customer. "Control" means the
possession, directly or indirectly, of the power to direct or cause the
direction of the management and operating policies of the entity in respect of
which the determination is being made, through the ownership of more than fifty
percent (50%) of its voting or equity securities, contract, voting trust or
otherwise.

1.       CONSULTING SERVICES AND FEES.

         a.       Microsoft, through its Microsoft Consulting Services division
("MCS"), shall perform the consulting services for Customer specified in work
orders (each a "Work Order") that may be entered into pursuant to this
Agreement from time to time ("Services"). Neither Microsoft nor Customer shall
be obligated to enter into any Work Order.

         b.       Customer shall pay Microsoft the fees identified on each Work 
Order for Services rendered, and the reasonable out-of-pocket travel and living
expenses incurred by MCS consultants during performance of a Work Order.
Payment shall be made to Microsoft within thirty (30) days of the date of
Microsoft's invoice. Microsoft shall not change its fees during the term of a
Work Order, unless otherwise agreed by Microsoft and Customer, but may adjust
fees prior to entering any new Work Order. Microsoft's fees do not include any
taxes, duties, tariffs or other governmental charges or expenses imposed in
connection with this Agreement (including, without limitation, any value added
taxes), and such taxes shall be billed to and paid by Customer. Microsoft shall
be responsible for all taxes based upon its personal property ownership and net
income. A finance charge of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month or the
highest amount allowed by law, whichever is less, will be assessed on all
payments that are past due. Any amount outstanding for more than sixty (60)
days after the date of invoice shall constitute a material breach on the part
of Customer.

2.       RIGHTS IN PROGRAMS AND DATA. The rights in programs and data shall be
specified in each Work Order.

3.       CONFIDENTIALITY.

         a.       Confidential Information. Except as otherwise specified 
herein, Microsoft and Customer each expressly undertake to retain in confidence
all information transmitted to it by the other party pursuant to this Agreement
that the disclosing party identifies as being proprietary and/or confidential
or that, by the nature of the circumstances surrounding the disclosure, ought
in good faith to be treated as proprietary and/or confidential ("Confidential
Information"), and will make no use of such Confidential Information except
under the terms and during the existence of this Agreement. Information
disclosed by Microsoft, in any form, regarding pre-release

products, access numbers and passwords provided to Customer by Microsoft, shall
be Microsoft Confidential Information. Microsoft and Customer shall treat the
terms and conditions of this Agreement as confidential; however, either party
may disclose such information in confidence to its immediate legal and
financial consultants as required in the ordinary course of that party's
business. The receiving party's obligation hereunder shall extend for five (5)
years following the disclosure of the Confidential Information. Customer shall
cause its Affiliates to retain Microsoft Confidential Information in accordance
with the terms of this Section 3.

         b.       Exclusions. Confidential Information shall not include any
information that: (i) is at the time of disclosure or subsequently becomes
publicly available without the receiving party's breach of any obligations owed
the disclosing party; (ii) became known to the receiving party prior to the
disclosing party's disclosure of such information to the receiving party; (iii)
became known to the receiving party from a source other than the disclosing
party other than by the breach of an obligation of confidentiality owed to the
disclosing party; or (iv) is independently developed by the receiving party.

         c.       Independent Development; Residuals. The terms of 
confidentiality under this Agreement shall not be construed to limit
Microsoft's or Customer's right to independently develop or acquire products
without use of the other party's Confidential Information. Further, Microsoft
or Customer shall be free to use for any purpose the residuals resulting from
access to or work with such Confidential Information, provided that such party
shall maintain the confidentiality of the Confidential Information as provided
herein. The term "residuals" means technical information related to computer
software technology in non-tangible form, which may be retained by persons who
have had access to the Confidential Information, including ideas, concepts,
know-how or techniques contained therein. Neither Microsoft nor Customer shall
have any obligation to limit or restrict the assignment of such persons or to
pay royalties for any work resulting from the use of residuals. However, the
foregoing shall not be deemed to grant to either Microsoft or Customer a
license under the other party's copyrights or patents.

         d.       Customer Information. Customer grants to Microsoft the right 
to use technical information for problem resolution, internal troubleshooting,
product functionality enhancements and fixes, and Knowledge Base articles.
Microsoft will not identify Customer or publish any of Customer's Confidential
Information in any Knowledge Base article.

will be performed using generally accepted industry standards and practices.

MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, TITLE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

PARTY VENDORS, DEVELOPERS OR CONSULTANTS IDENTIFIED OR REFERRED TO COMPANY BY
MICROSOFT UNLESS SUCH THIRD PARTY SERVICES ARE PROVIDED UNDER WRITTEN AGREEMENT
WITH MICROSOFT.

6.       LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.

         a.       Limitation. Microsoft' total liability under this Agreement 
shall be limited to the total amount actually paid by Customer to Microsoft
under the applicable Work Order.

         b.       Exclusion of Certain Damages. TO THE MAXIMUM EXTENT PERMITTED 
BY APPLICABLE LAW, IN NO EVENT SHALL MICROSOFT, MICROSOFT SUBSIDIARIES OR THEIR
RESPECTIVE SUPPLIERS BE LIABLE TO COMPANY FOR ANY INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL,
INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES (INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LOST
PROFITS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOSS OF BUSINESS INFORMATION OR OTHER PECUNIARY
LOSS)

reproductions and summaries of Confidential Information or Confidential
Materials at Disclosing Party's request, or at Disclosing Party's option,
certify destruction of the same.

         (c)      Receiving Party acknowledges that monetary damages may not be

remedies, to such injunctive or equitable relief as may be deemed proper by a
court of competent jurisdiction.

         (d)      Disclosing Party may visit Receiving Party's premises, with

deemed to have been waived by any act or acquiescence on the part of Disclosing
Party, its agents, or employees, but only by an instrument in writing signed by
