Agreement on Intellectual Property and Property Rights

between

biozoom Services GmbH ("biozoom") i. L.. -

and

Vodafone Ventures Limited ("Vodafone Ventures")

and

Opsolution Spectroscopic Systems GmbH ("OpS")

and

MBR Messtechnik GmbH ("MBR")

and

Opsolution GmbH ("Op")

(collectively "the Parties")

As far as and to the amount that this IPR Agreement contains provisions which touch upon rights or obligations of only some of the Parties, this will be explicitly set out in the respective provision

of this Agreement:

Recitals

This Agreement on Property Rights and Intellectual Property Rights ("the Agreement" or "the IPR Agreement") shall be concluded in compliance with a certain Liquidation Agreement between the
Parties dated November 07,2006 (the "Liquidation Agreement"), notwithstanding any stated intent or deadlines in such Liquidation Agreement. Article 6, paragraph 2 of the Liquidation Agreement provides that
"a separate agreement covering the intellectual property rights" shall be signed by the Parties. Such agreement shall cover "theexisting provisions, including management. exploitation and usage rights and obligations which are contained in any of the contracts listed in Schedule 2 [of the Liquidation Agreement] that relateto intellectual property rights, including, but not limited to the patents in Schedule 3 [of the Liquidation Agreement]".

The Parties have agreed that both Vodafone Ventures and OpS shall assume biozoom' s interests and associated rights in all patent applications and (after registration) the patents (as defined in Article 2 Section 1 of this Agreement). biozoom's rights in these patent applications and (after registration) patents and all associated rights shall be transferred to Vodafone Ventures and to OpS.

The patent applications and (after registration) patents listed in SCHEDULE A to this Agreement have been mistakenly filed in the name of Op instead of OpS. OpS has proven to the other Parties on or before Effective Date (as defined in Article 1 Section 4 of this Agreement) that Op and OpS have taken all steps required to rectify this error, which means they have prepared all necessary documents for the re-registration of OpS instead of Op. Consequently, when referring to OpS in Article 2 of this Agreement, the Parties are aware that, legally, Op is, on Effective Date, holder of the patent applications and (after registration) patents listed in SCHEDULE A to this Agreement, but that after the re-registration agreed between Op and OpS, OpS will be the rightful holder of the patent applications and (after registration) patents listed in SCHEDULE A to this Agreement.

Furthermore MBR has transferred their rights concerning the patent application listed under SCHEDULE A b) German patent application number 102005063263.7 (biozoom reference number PDEMB-05) and under SCHEDULE A c) German patent application number 10 2006 011 063.3 (biozoom reference number PDEMB-06) to OpS. The parties agree that each is solely responsible for recording any interest in patent ownership resulting from transfer of ownership thereto or to any assignee or any other Agreement, and for the costs associated therewith. However, any Party, shall use reasonable endeavours to notify all other named proprietors of the the Patent Applications and Patents and seek to co-ordinate any recordal of interest in order to minimise costs.

The Parties agree that the following rules shall apply to and among OpS, Vodafone Ventures and MBR - as far as MBR is still a co-owner of the patent German patent application number 10 2006 003 499.6 (biozoom reference number PDEMB-04) listed under SCHEDULE A Section 1 to this Agreement (hereinafter the New IP Right Holders) with respect to New IP Rights, including management and exploitation rights and obligations:

a) Vodafone Ventures and OpS shall be entitled to make use of the New IP Rights, including the commercialization of the subject matter of the patents, for the central application of services for their own business-operation in their own responsibility and liability on a royalty-free basis.

b) The same shall apply for the de-central application of services if, and only when, such application is in conjunction with connected devices. This is the case when the spectral measurements of the scanner are analyzed locally (de-central) on an electrical device which is connected with the scanner AND a telecommunications network (mobile or fixed network). Notwithstanding the foregoing usage rights limitation, the New IP Rights Holders agree that OpS retains the right and shall be entitled to make use of the New IP Rights for any other de-central application of services.

c) None of the New IP Right Holders shall be held liable for the infringement of any third party's rights resulting from another New IP Right Holder's commercialization of New IP Rights; an infringing New IP Right Holder shall be obliged to indemnify all other non-infringing New IP Right Holders for all damages, losses, claims, reasonable expenses and reasonable costs incurred as a result of the infringement of any third party right by the infringing New IP Right Holder.

d) Vodafone Ventures and OpS are free to grant simple sub-licences regarding the New IP Rights provided they are subject to the foregoing usage right limitations in Articles 4 (2)(a) and (b) for an appropriate royalty customary in the particular market. The New IP Right Holder who wants to grant sub-licenses shall inform the other New IP Right Holders about the sub-licensee and the terms as well as the reason of the granting of the sub-licence in writing. Royalties from sub-licences shall be shared by the New IP Right Holders on a pro-rata basis applying the ownership ratio specified in Schedule A. The sub-licensing New IP Right Holder shall be obliged to agree on an appropriate royalty as consideration for the sub-licence and in any case shall be held liable and pay a compensation to the other New IP Right Holders ifhe does not comply with this obligation.

e) Costs occurring in connection with the New IP Rights, including but not limited to costs for the up-keeping of the New IP Rights costs of the defence of the New IP Rights etc. shall be borne by and shared between the New IP Right Holders on a pro-rata basis applying the ownership ratio specified in Schedule A. The cost obligations provided herein are transferable with any assignment of a share in the Ne,,\' IP rights. Notwithstanding the fore going the Parties agree, that concerning inventors' remunerations, costs shall be shared between the New IP Right Holders according to their respective commercial benefit from a New IP Right.

f) The New IP Right Holders will inform each other in writing about any infringement of New IP Rights by third parties. They will jointly decide whether or not they want to take defensive action (including the filing of a lawsuit) against a New IP Right Infringer. The cost for the enforcement of the New IP Rights shall be borne by and shared among the New IP Right Holders on a pro-rata basis applying the ownership ratio specified in Schedule A. The cost obligations provided herein are transferable with any assignment of a share in the New IP rights. If there is no agreement between the New IP Right Holders about taking measures against a New IP Right Infringer, each New IP Right Holder may file a lawsuit against a New IP Right Infringer individually or together with another New IP Right Holder at his/their own expense. In that case that New IP Right Holder(s) will receive the full amount of damages paid by a New IP Right Infringer.

g) The New IP Right Holders shall jointly decide on filings of patents applications in foreign countries or the filing of any divisional patent application derived therefrom. In case one or more New IP Right Holders is/are not interested in such a filing, the interested New IP Right Holder(s) shall be free to conduct such filing in its/their own name(s) and at its/their own expense and shall notify the other New IP Right Holder(s) of such filing. The costs of such filings (and subsequent associated costs) shall be borne by and shared between the filing New IP Right Holders on a pro-rata-basis applying the ownership ratio specified in Schedule A. The cost obligations provided herein are transferable with any assignment of a share in the New IP rights. A non-filing Party shall not participate in costs/expenses and royalty-fees, compensation etc., arising from or out of the respective patent application or the assigned patent respectively.

h) A New IP Right Holder who is not interested in the further up-keeping of a New lP-Right shall be entitled to inform the other New IP Right Holders so in writing and thereafter shall be obliged to transfer his rights to the other New IP Right Holders (on a pro-ratabasis applying the ownership ratio specified in Schedule A). Once the other New IP Right Holders have received written information pursuant to the aforementioned sentence, the abandoning New IP Right Holder shall no longer have to bear any future costs and shall no longer be entitled to any future profits concerning the respective New IP Right.

i) The New IP Right Holders shall jointly agree on the prosecution and any amendment of the Patent Applications and Patents (including any additional filing where there is joint ownership provided for under this Article 4) necessary to progress any application or maintain any granted patent. In particular, each New IP Right Holder shall be kept fully advised of any development in the prosecution of such applications and afforded an opportunity to comment prior to any amendment. In the event that agreement on the continued prosecution or amendment of any Patent Applications or Patents cannot be reached, the New IP Right Holders agree, in order to avoid any loss of rights by failing to address the need for any amendment of the Patent Applications or Patents, that the matter may be referred to an independent arbitrator to detennine an appropriate manner in which to progress any amendment, and that the IP Right Holders will abide by the decision of such arbitrator. Such arbitrator will be skilled in patent law and, where applicable in any territory, will primarily be a State recognised or appointed patent arbitrator. In the event that agreement cannot be reached in a territory where there is no State recognised or appointed patent arbitrator, the New IP Right Holders agree that an appropriate independent arbitrator may be nominated by the president or chainnan of the body representing the professional patent attorney's in that territory. For any International Patent Application under the Patent Cooperation Treaty or any European Patent Applications an arbitrator may be nominated by the president or chainnan of the body representing the professional patent attorneys of Gennany.
