Identification of Infringers

5.1           Licensee will, without delay, inform Licensor of any known infringement, unauthorized use, misappropriation, ownership claim, threatened infringement or other such claim (collectively, an “Infringement”) by a third party with respect to the Licensed Products, and/or the Licensed Technology, and will provide Licensor with any evidence available to Licensee of such Infringement. Licensee acknowledges and agrees that Licensor, in its sole and absolute discretion, will decide what action should be taken with respect to any such disclosed Infringement, whether or not litigation should be pursued against an alleged infringer, the jurisdiction in which any such litigation should be pursued, whether or not litigation should be settled or pursued to final resolution against an alleged infringer, and the terms of settlement.  Licensee agrees that it shall be responsible to contribute to the costs of all enforcement to protect the Patented Licensed Technology if the claimed infringement involves products similar or competitive to the Licensee’s lift equipment products. In such case, Licensee shall contribute to all expenses incurred in any action Licensor decides should be taken to protect the Licensed Technology from Infringement or to defend any claim against Licensor or the Licensed Technology for Infringement relating (“Infringement Action”), including all attorney, paralegal, accountant or other professional fees from the notice of such Action through all trial and appellate levels. Contribution by Licensee shall not exceed twenty five percent (25%) of Development Fees paid or due under this Agreement. The parties shall cooperate with each other and provide all advice and assistance reasonably requested by each other in pursuit of such Infringement matters.

5.1.1           Licensor will, without delay, inform Licensee of any known infringement, unauthorized use, misappropriation, ownership claim, threatened infringement or other such claim by a third party with respect to the Licensee Products, and/or Patented Technology, and will provide Licensee with any evidence available to Licensor of such Infringement.


5.2           Each party will execute all necessary and proper documents, take such actions as is reasonably necessary to allow the other party to institute and prosecute such infringement actions and will otherwise use its commercially reasonable efforts to cooperate in the institution and prosecution of such actions.  Each party prosecuting any such infringement actions will keep the other party reasonably informed as to the status of such actions. Any award paid by third parties as a result of such an Infringement action (whether by way of settlement or otherwise) will be applied first to reimburse the parties for all costs and expenses incurred by the parties with respect to such action on a pro rata basis in relation to the amount of costs and expenses so incurred by such party and, if after such reimbursement any funds will remain from such award, the parties will allocate such remaining funds between themselves in the same proportion as they have agreed in writing to bear the expenses of instituting and maintaining such action.


6.1           Licensee will timely inform Licensor, in writing, of any improvements, changes, advances and/or modifications to the Licensed Products or Licensed Technology (hereinafter “Licensee’s Improvements”), and the purpose(s) therefor, made by Licensee. Any and all such improvements, changes, advances and/or modifications to the Licensed Products or Licensed Technology made by Licensee (“Licensee Improvements”) shall become the property of Licensor and Licensee hereby assigns all of its right, title and interest in and to such Licensee Improvements to Licensor regardless if developed or invented by Licensee or Licensor or any of their employees or affiliates.  Further, Licensor will own the entire right, title and interest in any and all patent applications resulting from or relating to any and all improvements and/or modifications to the Licensed Products or the Licensed Technology, whether filed in the United States or countries other than the United States, related to said improvements and/or modifications; and in and to any and all patents which may be issued/granted on any and all said applications and any and all reissues thereof.  To the extent that improvements made by other licensees to the Licensed Technology would improve the Licensee’s Licensed Products, such improvements shall be made part of this License. The Licensee shall retain ownership of all improvements and intellectual property related to its Equipment.

6.2           Licensee covenants and agrees for itself and for its successors and assigns that, at Licensor’s request, it will cause to be executed and delivered any applications, affidavits, assignments, and other instruments as may be deemed necessary or desirable to secure for or vest in Licensor, its successors, legal representatives, or assigns, all right, title, and interest in and to any application, patent, or other right or property covered by this Section, including the right to apply for and obtain patents in foreign countries under the provisions of the International Convention; and Licensee hereby requests and authorizes the United States Commissioner of Patents and Trademarks to issue any and all United States patents granted on the Licensee Improvements, all divisions, reissues, and continuations thereof to Licensor as owner of the entire right, title, and interest in and to the same, and authorize appropriately empowered officials of foreign countries to issue any letters patent granted on any patents and all divisions, reissues, and continuations thereof to Licensor as owner of the entire right, title, and interest in and to the same.

6.3           Licensee will not contest the validity or enforceability of any patents that issue from or as a result of any of the patents or patent applications for the License Technology or any continuations, divisionals or continuations-in-part of such applications unless such patents or patent applications infringe on the Licensee patents and patent applications.  Licensee will not assert as a defense in any litigation with respect to Licensed Products that any patents that issue from or as a result of any of the patent applications (including any continuations, divisionals or continuations-in-part of such applications) are invalid or unenforceable, unless a court holding denotes such a result.


6.4           Licensor has and will continue to have sole and absolute discretion to make decisions with respect to the procurement and prosecution of the patents and patent applications for the Licensed Technology, including the right to abandon any such patent application. Licensor’s abandonment of or any failure to obtain or maintain an issued patent originating from any of the patents or patent applications will not relieve or release Licensee from its obligation to pay the License Fees and Sales Prices provided in this Agreement, provided Licensor can show that suitable rights to exclude competitors from practicing the Licensed Technology are still in place to provide Licensee a valuable right under the License in the Territory.  Similarly, a holding or decision by a court of law that any such issued patent is invalid or unenforceable will not relieve or release Licensee from its obligation to pay the License Fees and Sales Price provided in this Agreement, pursuant to the same requirement of rights to exclude noted above.  If any of such events occur, Licensee must continue to pay any License Fees and Sales Price due during the Term.  If Licensor cannot show that suitable rights to exclude competitors from practicing the Licensed Technology are still in place in the Territory after abandonment, invalidation, or unenforceability has occurred or been held by a court, then Licensee may terminate this Agreement.


7.1           If either party is in default of any material obligation under this Agreement, then the non-breaching party may give written notice thereof to the breaching party to cure the breach.  If within 60 days after the date of such notice such default is not cured, then this Agreement will automatically terminate at the discretion of the non-breaching party and all rights and licenses under this Agreement will revert to the beneficial owner thereof prior to execution of the Agreement.

7.2           This Agreement will terminate immediately if Licensee is dissolved or liquidated.  This Agreement will also terminate immediately absent an adequate written assurance of future performance if: (i) any bankruptcy or insolvency proceedings under any federal or state bankruptcy or insolvency code or similar law, whether voluntary or involuntary, is properly commenced by or against Licensee; or (ii) Licensee becomes insolvent, is unable to pay debts as they come due or ceases to so pay, or makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors; or (iii) a trustee or receiver is appointed for any or all of Licensee’s assets; or (iv) Licensee does not make sales of the Engines in any three (3) month period after the first full year of the commercialization of the Engines.



7.3           Immediately after the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason:

(a)           All rights of Licensee granted hereunder will terminate and automatically revert to Licensor, and Licensee will discontinue all assembly and/or manufacturing of the Licensed Technology and will no longer have the right to manufacture, sell or put into use the Licensed Technology or any variation or simulation thereof for any purpose whatsoever;

(b)           Licensee will be permitted to sell and dispose of its remaining inventory of Engines on hand or in process on the date of such termination or expiration, for a period of one hundred twenty (120) days following the date of such expiration or termination (the “Sale Period”). Licensee expressly agrees that it will not market or sell/use any Licensed Product after the end of the Sale Period;

(c)           All sums owed by Licensee to Licensor will become due and payable immediately;

(d)           Licensee will not, following expiration or termination of the this Agreement, use Confidential Information to manufacture or sell Licensed Products anywhere in the world; and

(e)           Licensee retains no rights whatsoever to any of Licensor’s Licensed Technology.

(f)           These restrictions of the Licensee shall survive in perpetuity the termination of this Agreement including after the expiration of Licensor’s Patents. In such case, Licensee may not manufacture or sell Engines that would have been in violation of Licensor’s patent rights without negotiating and paying to Licensor a reasonable royalty.

7.4           Notwithstanding the foregoing, or any other provisions of this Agreement to the contrary, Sections 4, 5, 6, 7 and 9 will survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
