Patent Matters As of the Effective Date, Gilead has no knowledge of the existence of any patent owned or controlled by a Third Party which covers the lead compound identified by Gilead to Roche (GS 4104) and would prevent Roche from making, using or selling such compound. To the best of Gilead's knowledge and belief, as of the Effective Date, the patent applications listed in Exhibit A at the Effective Date are owned by Gilead and Gilead is not in possession of information that would, in its opinion, render invalid and/or unenforceable claims directed specifically to GS 4104 that are presently in one or more of such applications. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if at any time prior to December 31, 1997, a patent or patent application held by a Third Party is identified which covers the specific Product being developed by the parties pursuant to this Agreement, the parties will meet and discuss possible resolutions of the patent situation. If the resolution involves a license from the Third Party to its patent rights and/or a license to the Third Party under Gilead or Roche patent rights, the parties acknowledge that the economic assumptions underlying this Agreement may no longer be valid, and in such case the parties will renegotiate the terms of this Agreement in good faith in order to reflect such resolution.
