waiver of any former breach of covenant or consent in a former instance, it shall be lawful for Textron thereupon or at any time thereafter, during which such default, assignment, insolvency, legal proceedings, desertion, vacancy or neglect shall continue, or be in effect to terminate this Agreement and all of Licensee’s interest hereunder by giving written notice to Licensee of such termination and of the effective date thereof (and such notice having been given, this Agreement shall cease and expire on the date named therein), and/or, at Textron’s option, without demand or notice, and without process of law to enter upon and into the Premises or any part thereof in the name of the whole, and to declare this Agreement at an end and in such case expel Licensee without being guilty of any manner of trespass without prejudice, however, to Textron’s claims for rent or other claims for breach of covenant hereunder, it being expressly understood and agreed that this Agreement shall not continue or inure to the benefit of any assignee, receiver or trustee in bankruptcy, excepting at the option of Textron.

14.3      Interest, Costs and Fees.  If Licensee shall breach or fail to perform any of the covenants or provisions of this Agreement, and such breach shall continue beyond the period as specified in 14.1, and such failure or breach shall cause Textron to incur any damages or expenses whatsoever, then and in that event such damages or expenses so incurred by Textron, with interest at the rate of one (1) percent per month, costs and reasonable attorney’s fees shall be deemed to be additional fees hereunder and shall be due from Licensee to Textron on the first (1st) day of the month following the incurring of such respective expenses.

 

15.        NO WAIVER

 

The failure of Textron to seek redress for violation of, or to insist upon the strict performance of, any covenant or condition of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of such violation nor prevent a subsequent act, which would have originally constituted a violation, from having all the force and effect of any original violation.  The receipt by Textron of fees with knowledge of the breach of any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed to have been a waiver by Textron of such breach, or by Licensee, any such waiver shall not be valid unless such waiver by in writing, signed by the party to be charged.  No consent or waiver, express or implied, by Textron to or of any breach of this Agreement or of any other agreement or duty between the parties shall be construed as a waiver or consent to or of any later breach of the same of any breach of any other provisions of this Agreement or other agreement or duty.
