Research Use license are superseded by the following:
a) Your Indemnity Obligation. You hereby agree to defend, at Your expense, any
legal proceeding brought against Original Contributor or any Licensee to the
extent it is based on a claim: (i) that the use, reproduction or distribution of
any of Your Error Corrections or Shared Modifications is an infringement of a
third party trade secret or a copyright in a country that is a signatory to the
Berne Convention; (ii) based on any representation, warranty, support,
indemnity, liability or other license terms You may offer in connection with any
Covered Code; or (iii) arising from Your Commercial Use of Covered Code, other
than a claim covered by Section 5.b) below, or a patent claim based solely on
Covered Code not provided by You. You will pay all damages, costs and fees
awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction, or such settlement amount
negotiated by You, attributable to such claim.
b) Original Contributor's Indemnity Obligation. Original Contributor will
defend, at its expense, any legal proceeding brought against You, to the extent
it is based on a claim that Your authorized Commercial Use of Original Code and
Upgraded Code is an infringement of a third party trade secret or a copyright in
a country that is a signatory to the Berne Convention, and will pay all damages,
costs and fees awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction, or such settlement
amount negotiated by Original Contributor, attributable to such claim. The
foregoing shall not apply to any claims of intellectual property infringement
based upon the combination of code or documentation supplied by Original
Contributor with code, technology or documentation from other sources.
Agreement No. 55543 Page 3
c) Right of Intervention. Original Contributor will have the right, but not the
obligation, to defend You, at Original Contributor's expense, in connection with
a claim that Your Commercial Use of Original Code and Upgraded Code is an
infringement of a third party patent and will, if Original Contributor chooses
to defend You, pay all damages, costs and fees awarded by a court of competent
jurisdiction, or such settlement amount negotiated by Original Contributor,
attributable to such claim.

claim promptly to the party providing an indemnity; (ii) give the indemnifying
party sole control of the defense and settlement of the claim; (iii) provide the
indemnifying party, at indemnifying party's expense, all available information,
assistance and authority to defend; and (iv) not have compromised or settled
such claim or proceeding without the indemnifying party's prior written consent.
e) Additional Remedies. Should any Original Code, Upgraded Code, TCK,
Specifications, Error Corrections, or Modifications become, or in the
indemnifying party's opinion be likely to become, the subject of a claim of
infringement for which indemnity is provided above, the indemnifying party may,
at its sole option, attempt to procure on reasonable terms the rights necessary
for the indemnified party to exercise its license rights under this License with
respect to the infringing items, or to modify the infringing items so that they
are no longer infringing without substantially impairing their function or
performance. If the indemnifying party is unable to do the foregoing after
reasonable efforts, then the indemnifying party may send a notice of such
inability to the indemnified party together with a refund of any license fees
received by the indemnifying party from the indemnified party for the infringing
items applicable to the indemnified party's future use or distribution of such
infringing items, in which case the indemnifying party will not beliable for any
damages resulting from infringing activity with respect to the infringing items
occurring after such notice and refund.
