Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, 3Com grants to Seller a non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free license, without the right of sublicense, to assist in the development effort regarding the Device as set forth in Exhibit D and to provide the support described in Exhibit C. All other rights not expressly granted in this Agreement are reserved. 16.7 INTEROPERABILITY MARKING. Upon successful completion of interoperability testing in accordance with Exhibit D, Seller (a) will provide to 3Com an interoperability logo for use in 3Com's marketing materials in accordance with Seller's then-current trademark use guidelines, and (b) will include 3Com's name and the name of the Device on a list of interoperable CPE which will be provided to Seller's customers and posted on Seller's web site. 3Com will display the interoperability logo on each Device and Product and the packaging of each Device and Product and on all associated printed and marketing materials, including but not limited to product brochures and on 3Com's world wide web site in all web pages that pertain to the Device. 16.8 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY MARKINGS.

Such Marks shall be prominent and the placement and sizing shall be subject to mutual agreement of the parties. In no 13. event may 3Com alter or remove any Marks unless such removal is approved in advance in writing by Seller. Except for the right to use the Marks as set forth in this Section 16.9, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to grant 3Com any right, title or interest in or to the Marks. 3Com acknowledges Seller's exclusive ownership of the Marks. 3Com agrees not to take any action inconsistent with such ownership and further agrees to take, at Seller's reasonable expense, any action which Seller reasonably requests to establish and preserve Seller's exclusive rights in and to its Marks. 3Com shall not adopt, use or attempt to register any trademarks or trade names that are confusingly similar to the Marks or in such a way as to create combination marks with the Marks. 3Com will maintain a high quality standard in producing and marketing Devices. 3Com shall promptly provide Seller with samples of all materials, including the Devices, that use the Marks for Seller's quality control purposes. If, in Seller's reasonable discretion 3Com's use of the Marks does not meet Seller's then-current trademark usage policy, Seller may, at its option, require 3Com to revise such material and re-submit it under this Section 16.9 prior to shipment, display, or release of further Devices or materials bearing or containing such Mark. 16.10 INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OWNERSHIP.

Seller and 3Com agree that throughout the term of this Agreement they shall cooperate reasonably and in good faith to decide jointly the manner in which their respective interests in Joint Intellectual Property shall be perfected and enforced.

Should a party choose not to participate in securing or protecting an element of Joint Intellectual Property (by notifying the other party in writing to such effect), the other party may secure or protect its claims to such Joint Intellectual Property and shall be entitled to reap the benefit of its efforts without accounting to the other party, including without limitation retaining the full amount of any settlement or damage award from a third party. 14. 16.11 INFRINGEMENT BY THIRD PARTIES. If either party learns of any possible infringement or misappropriation of the other party's Intellectual Property Rights related to the Products and Devices, it shall immediately give notice thereof to the other party. Each party agrees to cooperate with the infringed party's reasonable efforts to seek legal remedies for such infringements and misappropriations. 16.12 ALTERATION OF THE PRODUCT. All modifications to the Product shall be done through Seller or with Seller's prior written consent.

Software, the Product, the Seller Know-How, the DSL Specifications or the infringing portions of the Seller Technology, or (ii) modify the Seller Software, the Product, the Seller Know-how or the DSL Specifications or the infringing portions thereof so that they become non-infringing. If in Seller's opinion either of the above is not commercially feasible, 3Com shall promptly cease selling Devices or Products, as applicable, and Seller shall refund to 3Com an amount equal to the royalties paid by 3Com for the infringing Seller Technology or amounts paid for the infringing Product units, depreciated on a five-year straight line basis, calculated backwards from the date of infringing event (i.e., payments made on the day of the infringing event would be refunded fully, and payments made five (5) years prior to the event would not be refunded at all, with a linear decrease in-between). Seller will have no liability or obligation to indemnify for any claim arising from (i) the combination of Seller Technology, the Seller Software, the Device or the Product with 3Com or third party materials or intellectual property, unless it is determined by a court of competent jurisdiction that the Seller Technology is the infringing element of such Claim; (ii) the modification or translation of Seller Technology, the Seller Software, the Device or the Product or any portion of the Seller Technology; (iii) any use by 3Com of the Seller Technology after 3Com becomes aware that the Seller Technology, the Seller Software, the Device or the Product may be infringing; or (iv) any Improvements created by a party other than Seller. (B) 3Com shall indemnify, defend and hold Seller harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, fees, costs and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees, incurred by Seller resulting from a Claim that the manufacture, use or sale of the Device infringes any patent, copyright or other proprietary rights of any third party or misappropriates any trade secret of any third party; provided that such Claim is not a Claim based solely on the DSL Specifications, the Seller Software, the Product or the Seller Technology for which Seller indemnifies 3Com pursuant to Section 19.1(a); and provided further that Seller (i) promptly notifies 3Com in writing of such Claim; (ii) provides 3Com sole control of the defense or settlement of such claim; and (iii) provides Seller assistance at Seller' request and reasonable expense. 19.2 LIABILITY INDEMNITY. 3Com agrees to indemnify and hold Seller harmless from and against any and all liabilities, losses, damages, costs, fees and expenses, including without limitation reasonable attorneys' fees, and to defend Seller against, any and all Claims resulting from or arising out of 3Com's acts or omissions to act arising from or related to the subject matter of this Agreement, including but not limited to any liabilities, damages, or losses whatsoever with respect to death or injury to any person and damage to any property arising from the possession, manufacture, use, sale or administration of the Devices or the Product by 3Com; provided that Seller (i) promptly notifies 3Com in writing of such Claim; (ii) provides 3Com sole control of the defense or settlement of such claim; and (iii) provides 3Com assistance at 3Com's request and reasonable expense. 19.3 ENTIRE LIABILITY.
