local sales, use, value added or other taxes, customs duties, or similar tariffs
and fees which Macromedia may be required to pay or collect upon the delivery of
the Products or upon collection of the price. Should any tax or levy be made,
Distributor agrees to pay such tax or levy and indemnify Macromedia for any
claim for such tax or levy demanded. Distributor covenants to Macromedia that
all Products acquired hereunder will be for redistribution in the ordinary
course of Distributor's business, and Distributor agrees to provide Macromedia

contrary, Distributor shall not be deemed in default if it withholds any
specific amount to Macromedia because of a legitimate dispute between the
parties as to that specific amount, pending the resolution of the disputed

more orders already placed and not yet shipped, provided such orders were placed
in the same month as the RMA request. Upon receipt of the purchase order(s),
Macromedia shall issue the RMA number, which must accompany the return shipment.
Macromedia agrees not to ship against the offered purchase order(s) until it has
approved the RMA. To be eligible for return, Products must be new, unused and in
their original, sealed packaging. However, no return will be authorized by
Macromedia if, at the time of the requested return, Distributor is in default or
breach of any provision of this Agreement, including failure to comply with any
applicable credit terms or delinquency in any payment to Macromedia, subject to
Distributor's right of withhold under section 3.5.


         5.1 Upon receipt of an order by Distributor, Macromedia shall use
reasonable efforts to deliver such order to Distributor within ten (10) days of
the date of such order. Orders shall be shipped F.O.B. Macromedia in accordance

weeks in advance of the requested date for shipment but in no event shall any
order be placed more than ninety (90) days in advance of the requested ship
date. All risk of loss or damage to the Products will pass to Distributor upon
delivery by Macromedia to the carrier, freight forwarder, or Distributor,
whichever occurs first. Macromedia shall ship orders to Distributor at least as
promptly as Macromedia ships any other orders received at or about the same
time. Should orders for Products exceed Macromedia's available inventory,

Distributor on account of the method of allocation chosen or its implementation.

under the terms of payment set forth in any invoice or otherwise agreed to by
Macromedia and Distributor, (ii) fails to meet reasonable credit or financial
requirements established by Macromedia, including any limitations on allowable
credit, or (iii) otherwise fails to comply with the terms and conditions of this

         6.2 Macromedia agrees to provide reasonable training and sales
collateral materials as needed, and to provide sales training for Distributor's
staff, at times mutually agreed upon by Macromedia. In addition, Macromedia
agrees to provide reasonable units of each Macromedia Product for in-house
training, resources library and technical support use; such units, as well as
any "NFR" units (i.e., Products that may not be resold to end users), may not be
redistributed for any reason, except for special promotional "NFR" units that
are offered to Distributor in exchange for Distributor's purchase of specified

Distribution of such Product units in violation of the foregoing will constitute
a material breach of this Agreement. When a new Product or new version is
released, units of the new Product or new version will also be provided by
Macromedia to Distributor.

         6.3 Distributor will provide Macromedia within seven business (7) days

non-disclosure agreement attached hereto as Exhibit F.

7. ADVANCE NOTICE In the event that Macromedia shall sell any additional Product
not set forth on Exhibit B which is offered by Macromedia through comparable
wholesale distributors. Macromedia shall make reasonable efforts to notify
Distributor not less than thirty (30) days in advance of such event and, in any
event, at least as quickly as Macromedia notifies any other Distributor.

be in writing and sent by certified mail to each party's address as set forth
above, with a courtesy copy to the General Counsel, and sent to the attention of
the Senior Buyer or Product Manager as applicable if sent to Distributor, and to
the attention of the Account Manager Distributor Sales, if sent to Macromedia.


         9.1 Distributor will accept and will require its Resellers to accept
the return of any Product by an enduser due to the enduser's failure to agree to
the terms of the Enduser License accompanying such Products, provided that the
disk package of such Product is returned unopened. Distributor may also return
any opened units of defective Product which have been returned by endusers in
accordance with the warranty set forth in the Enduser License accompanying the
Product. Transportation charges for the return of such Products shall be borne
by Macromedia. Such returns must be accompanied by a purchase order for
replacement Products equal in value to the purchase price paid by Distributor
for the returned Products. The offsetting purchase order(s) may include one or
more orders already placed and not yet shipped, provided such orders were placed
in the same month as the RMA request.

         9.2 Macromedia provides a limited warranty to end users of the
Products. Distributor will make no other warranty on Macromedia's behalf. EXCEPT


         10.1 Indemnification of Distributor. 

Macromedia agrees that, if notified promptly in writing and given sole control
of the defense and all related settlement negotiations, and if Distributor
cooperates and provides reasonable assistance, Macromedia will defend
Distributor against any claim based on an allegation that (i) a Product supplied
hereunder infringes a copyright, trademark, or state trade secret right within
the Territory, (ii) a Product supplied hereunder caused property damage or the
death of or a personal injury to, any person, arising out of or resulting in any
way from any defect in a Product, (iii) Macromedia violated any United States
law, statute or ordinance or any United States governmental or administrative
order, rule or regulation with regard to the Product or its manufacture,
possession, use or sale or (iv) arises from Macromedia's acts, omissions or
misrepresentations with respect to the Products to the extent that Macromedia
would have been found liable by a court if the claim had been made directly
against Macromedia. Macromedia will pay any resulting costs, damages and
attorneys' fees finally awarded by a court with respect to any such claims.
Distributor agrees that, if the Products in the inventory of Distributor, or the
operation thereof, become, or in Macromedia's opinion are likely to become, the
subject of such a claim, Distributor will permit Macromedia, at Macromedia's
option and expense, to, among other things, procure the right for Distributor to
continue marketing and using such Products, or to replace or modify them so that
they become noninfringing. If neither of the foregoing alternatives is available
on terms that Macromedia in its sole discretion deems reasonable, Distributor
will return such Products on written request from Macromedia. Macromedia will
grant Distributor a credit equal to the price paid by Distributor for such
returned Products, as adjusted for discounts, returns and credits actually
given, provided that such returned Products are in an undamaged condition.
Macromedia will have no obligation to Distributor with respect to infringement
of patents, copyrights, trademarks or trade secrets or other proprietary rights
beyond that stated in this Section 10.1

         10.2 Indemnification of Macromedia

and original condition. In such case, Macromedia will pay Distributor the actual
