Company and Surgica shall, prior to commencement of activities involving Clinical Use of Product, and at all times thereafter until twelve (12) months after the expiration or termination of this Agreement, each carry such products liability and comprehensive general liability insurance, premises and operations, naming the other party as an insured under such policy, and in such amounts and subject to such other requirements and restrictions as may be customary in the United States; provided, however, that Surgica shall not be required to carry product liability insurance during the period commencing on the Effective Date and continuing until the earlier of (i) the Effective Date of the Purchase Agreement pursuant to Company exercising the Option (as that term is defined in the Option Agreement) and (ii) the expiration or earlier termination of the Option Agreement. Surgica and Company shall have the right to audit the other party to ensure compliance with this obligation. [*****] The parties agree that any failure to comply with the obligations of this Section 8 shall be deemed a material breach of this Agreement. 9. Indemnification. 9.1 Company Indemnification. Company shall indemnify and hold harmless, pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9, Surgica and each of its officers, directors, employees, agents and Affiliates (collectively, the "Surgica Indemnitees"), from and against, and will reimburse each such Surgica Indemnitee with respect to, any and all Third Party claims, actions, demands, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses to which such Surgica Indemnitee may become subject, including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel and expenses of reasonable investigation (collectively, "Surgica Losses"), arising out of, based upon or caused by: (a) the inaccuracy of any representation or the breach of any warranty, covenant or agreement of Company contained in this Agreement, the License Agreement or the Option Agreement; (b) any failure by Company to conduct its obligations arising hereunder in a diligent and professional manner and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations; or (c) any gross negligence or intentional wrongdoing by Company in the performance of its obligations (except in each case, and solely to the extent, that any Surgica Loss is due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of one or more Surgica Indemnitees). 9.2 Surgica Indemnification. Surgica shall indemnify and hold harmless, pursuant to the provisions of this Section 9, Company and each of its officers, directors, employees, agents [*****] Material is confidential and has been omitted and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 13 and Affiliates (collectively, the "Company Indemnitees"), from and against, and will reimburse each such Company Indemnitee with respect to, any and all Third Party claims, actions, demands, losses, damages, liabilities, costs and expenses to which such Company Indemnitee may become subject, including reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel and expenses of reasonable investigation (collectively, "Company Losses"), arising out of, based upon or caused by: (a) the inaccuracy of any representation or the breach of any warranty, covenant or agreement of Surgica contained in this Agreement, the License Agreement or the Option Agreement; (b) the manufacture or supply of Products; (c) any failure by Surgica to conduct its obligations arising hereunder in a diligent and professional manner and in accordance with all applicable laws and regulations; (d) infringement by Surgica's Technology or Project Technology developed by Surgica in connection with this Agreement or any Project Plan of any Patent issued as of the date of delivery of such of Surgica's Technology or Project Technology or any Copyright or Trademark or misappropriation of any trade secret; or (e) any gross negligence or intentional wrongdoing by Surgica in the performance of its obligations (except in each case, and solely to the extent, that any Company Loss is due to the gross negligence or willful misconduct of one or more Company Indemnitees); provided, however, that Surgica shall not be obligated to indemnify the Company Indemnitees for claims arising out of any Product's infringement of any intellectual property right of a Third Party resulting from such Company Indemnitee's: (i) misuse or mishandling of Product or (ii) unauthorized modification of Product. 9.3 Indemnification Procedures. Each Party, on behalf of itself and its respective Surgica Indemnitees or Company Indemnitees (each such Person, an "Indemnitee"), agrees to provide the indemnifying Party prompt written notice of any action, claim, demand, discovery of fact, proceeding or suit (collectively, a "Claim") for which such Indemnitee intends to assert a right to indemnification under this Agreement; provided, however, that failure to give such notification shall not affect each applicable Indemnitee's entitlement to indemnification (or the corresponding indemnifying Party's indemnification obligations) hereunder except to the extent that the indemnifying Party shall have been prejudiced as a result of such failure. The indemnifying Party shall have the initial right (but not obligation) to defend, settle or otherwise dispose of any Claim for which an Indemnitee intends to assert a right to indemnification under this Agreement as contemplated in the preceding sentence if, and for so long as, the indemnifying Party has recognized in a written notice to the Indemnitee provided within thirty (30) days of such written notice its obligation to indemnify the Indemnitee for any Surgica Losses or Company Losses (as the case may be) relating to such Claim; provided, however, that if the indemnifying Party assumes control of the defense, settlement or disposition of a Claim, the indemnifying Party shall obtain the written consent of each applicable Indemnitee prior to ceasing to defend, settling or otherwise disposing of the Claim. If the indemnifying Party fails to state in a written notice during such thirty (30) day period its willingness to assume the defense of such a Claim, the Surgica Indemnitee(s) or Company Indemnitee(s), as the case may be, shall have the right to defend, settle or otherwise dispose of such Claim, subject to the applicable provides of Sections 9.1 and 9.2. 10. Confidentiality. 10.1 Subject to Section 10.3, during the term of this Agreement and for a period of five (5) years thereafter (except with respect to trade secrets, for which the obligations of non-use and non-disclosure shall continue for so long as such trade secrets are protected by their owner as 14 trade secrets), each Party shall maintain in confidence and shall not disclose to any Third Party any know-how, trade secrets, business or technical information or other information ("Confidential Information") received from the other Party relating to any Product, and shall not use the other Party's Confidential Information except for the purposes of this Agreement without the prior written consent of such other Party. These confidentiality and non-use obligations shall not apply to any Confidential Information that the receiving Party can demonstrate: 10.1.1 at the time of disclosure to the receiving Party was, or thereafter becomes, a part of the public domain through no fault of the receiving Party, its Affiliates, distributors or sublicensees; 10.1.2 was subsequently lawfully disclosed to the receiving Party by a Third Party not under an obligation of confidentiality with or through the disclosing Party; 10.1.3 was in the lawful possession of the receiving Party prior to disclosure by the disclosing Party; or 10.1.4 is required to be disclosed by judicial or administrative order, provided that notice is given to the disclosing Party and the disclosing Party has an opportunity, if reasonable under the circumstances, to seek a protective order, and further provided, that disclosure is limited solely to compliance with the judicial or administrative order. 10.2 During the term of this Agreement, each Party shall take all reasonable steps to: 10.2.1 prevent any disclosure in breach of Section 10.1 of Confidential Information of the other which would be materially prejudicial to the interests of the other Party; 10.2.2 limit the disclosure of information to such of its Affiliates, distributors and sub-licensees and their respective employees that require the information for the purposes of this Agreement; and 10.2.3 ensure that the persons referred to in Section 10.2.2 enter into appropriate confidentiality agreements containing use and disclosure restrictions at least as restrictive as those set forth herein. 10.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Section, the Parties and their Affiliates, distributors and sublicensees shall be entitled to disclose Confidential Information of the other Party which would otherwise be protected by the provisions of Section 10.1 to actual or potential customers for any Product in so far as such disclosure is reasonably necessary to commercialize such Product. 10.4 Equitable Relief. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that, due to the unique nature of the other's Proprietary Information, there can be no adequate remedy at law for any breach of its obligations hereunder and, therefore, that upon any breach of Section 10.1 or threat thereof, the other Party shall be entitled to injunctive relief and other appropriate equitable relief, without the posting of any bond, in addition to whatever remedies it may have at law. 15 11. Non-Solicitation. During the term of this Agreement and for one (1) year thereafter, neither Party shall, directly or indirectly, encourage, solicit or participate in the solicitation of any employee or consultant of the other Party to terminate such employee's or consultant's employment with such other Party; provided, however, that such prohibition shall not apply to mass-media advertisements directed toward the general public. 12. Term and Termination. 12.1 Term. The term of this Agreement shall commence as of the date hereof and, unless terminated earlier pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement, shall expire upon the expiration or termination of the License Agreement. 12.2 Termination. The obligations of a Party under this Agreement (but not its rights hereunder) may be terminated by such Party if, subject to Section 13 below, the other Party fails to perform any material term, provision, covenant or obligation imposed upon it under this Agreement, which failure or refusal shall continue for thirty (30) days following written notice thereof from the non-defaulting party specifying the event of default. 12.2.1 The failure of a Party to terminate its obligations under this Agreement by reason of the breach of any of the provisions by the other Party shall not be construed as a waiver of the rights or remedies available for any subsequent breach of the terms and provisions of this Agreement. 12.2.2 A Party electing to terminate its obligations under this Agreement shall also be entitled to pursue such additional remedies at law or in equity that it may have as a result of a breach of or default under this Agreement by the other Party. 12.2.3 Any Party bringing action to enforce the obligations of the other Party or its rights under this Agreement shall be entitled to recover all costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) incurred by it in such enforcement action. 12.3 Effect of Termination. Upon termination of this Agreement by either Party or naturally at the end of the term of this Agreement all rights and licenses granted hereunder, except as otherwise expressly provided by the terms hereof, shall terminate. 12.4 Not Sole Remedy. Termination is not the sole remedy under this Agreement and, whether or not termination is effected, all other remedies shall remain available. 12.5 Survival. Following expiration or termination of this Agreement, Sections 3, 4.2, 5.4, 5.5, 5.6, 5.7, 6 through 12, 11 (for one (1) year only), 12.3, 12.5, 17, and 18, and such provisions of Section 1 as are necessary to implement the surviving provisions shall remain in full force and effect in accordance with their terms. 16 13. Force Majeure. 13.1 Subject to compliance with paragraph (b) of this Section 13 any delays in or failure of performance by either Party under this Agreement shall not be considered a breach of this Agreement if and to the extent caused by any occurrences beyond the reasonable control of the Party affected, including but not limited to: acts of God; acts, regulations or laws of any government; strikes or other concerted acts of workers; fires; floods; explosions; riots; wars; rebellion; embargo; and sabotage; and any time for performance hereunder shall be extended by the actual time of delay caused by such occurrence. The Party suffering from a force majeure event shall take reasonable measures to remove the disability or restriction and resume operations at the earliest possible date. 13.2 Any Party affected by such force majeure who wishes to rely on the provisions of Section 13.1 shall as soon as reasonably practicable give written notice to the other Party specifying the matters constituting force majeure together with such evidence thereof as it can reasonably give and specifying the period for which it is estimated that the such delay will continue. 14. Relationship of the Parties. Notwithstanding any provision hereof, for all purposes of this Agreement each Party shall be and act as an independent contractor and not as partner, joint venturer, or agent of the other and shall not bind nor attempt to bind the other to any contract. Each Party (the "Responsible Party") shall indemnify and hold harmless the other Party (the "Protected Party") from any and all claims, liabilities, damages, debts, settlements, costs, attorneys' fees, expenses and liabilities of any type whatsoever that may arise on account of the activities of the Responsible Party's employees or agents, including, without limitation, providing unauthorized representations or warranties (or failing effectively to disclaim all warranties and liabilities on behalf of the Protected Party) to its customers. 15. Assignment. Surgica shall not assign or otherwise transfer this Agreement or any part hereof (and any attempt to do so will be void) to any Third Party without the prior written permission of Company, except to an entity that acquires all or substantially all of such Party's assets or operations. The provisions of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of, and be binding upon, Company and Surgica and their respective successors and assigns. 16. Publicity and Press Releases. Except to the extent necessary under applicable laws, the Parties agree that no press releases or other publicity relating to the substance of the matters contained herein will be made without joint approval. 17. Arbitration. 17.1 Excepting only actions and claims relating to actions commenced by a Third Party against Surgica or Company (including, without limitation, for injuries caused by a Product or in respect to a trademark or patent infringement claim), any controversy or claim arising out of or relating to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, or the decision to agree upon these terms, or the breach thereof, including questions of validity, infringement, or termination hereof, shall be settled exclusively by arbitration in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association. If such controversy or claim relates to patent validity or infringement, then the 17 Patent Arbitration Rules of the American Arbitration Association ("AAA") shall apply; otherwise the International Arbitration Rules of the AAA shall apply. Notwithstanding the foregoing to the contrary or in the arbitration rules invoked or in this Section 17, the Parties retain the right to request a judicial authority to invoke interim measures of protection, and such request shall not be deemed incompatible with this agreement to arbitrate or a waiver of the right to arbitrate. 17.2 There shall be one (1) arbitrator to be mutually agreed upon by the Parties and to be selected from the Regional Panel of Distinguished Neutrals. If the Parties are unable to agree upon such an arbitrator who is willing to serve within ten (10) days of receipt of the demand by the other Party, the Parties shall within three (3) days select one of the four largest international public accounting firms (excluding those providing services to the Parties) and engage the managing partner or senior officer of its County office located in the county containing the principal place of business of the Party who did not initiate the arbitration to designate a partner of such firm to serve as the arbitrator. Failing that, then the AAA shall appoint an arbitrator willing to serve from the Regional Panel of Distinguished Neutrals, or if no such panel exists, then from an appropriate AAA panel. It shall be the duty of the arbitrator to set dates for preparation and hearing of any dispute and to expedite the resolution of such dispute. 17.3 The arbitration shall be held in the city in which the principal place of business of the Party who did not initiate the arbitration is located and the arbitrator shall apply the substantive law of California except that the interpretation and enforcement of this arbitration provision shall be governed by the Federal Arbitration Act. 17.4 The arbitrator shall permit and facilitate discovery, which will be conducted in accordance with the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, taking into account the needs of the Parties and the desirability of making discovery expeditious and cost-effective. 17.5 The arbitrator will set a discovery schedule with which the Parties will comply and attend depositions if requested by either Party. 17.6 The arbitrator will entertain such presentation of sworn testimony or evidence, written briefs and/or oral argument as the Parties may wish to present, but no testimony or exhibits will be admissible unless the adverse party was afforded an opportunity to examine such witness and to inspect and copy such exhibits during the pre-hearing discovery phase. 17.7 The arbitrator shall among his other powers and authorities, have the power and authority to award interim or preliminary relief. 17.8 The arbitrator shall not be empowered to award either Party exemplary or punitive damages or any enhanced damages for willful infringement and the Parties shall be deemed to have waived any right to such damages. 17.9 A qualified court reporter will record and transcribe the proceeding. 17.10 The decision of the arbitrator will be in writing and judgment upon the award by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. 18 17.11 Prompt handling and disposal of the issue is important. Accordingly, the arbitrator is instructed to assume adequate managerial initiative and control over discovery and other aspects of the proceeding to schedule discovery and other activities for substantially continuous work, thereby expediting the arbitration as much as is deemed reasonable to him, but in all events to effect a final award no later than 365 days after the arbitrator's selection or appointment and no later than 20 days after the close of evidence. 17.12 The proceedings shall be confidential and the arbitrator shall issue appropriate protective orders to safeguard both Parties' confidential information. 17.13 The fees of the arbitrator and the AAA shall be paid as designated by the arbitrator or, if he shall not so designate, they shall be split equally between the Parties. 18. Miscellaneous. 18.1 Entire Agreement. This Agreement (and all Exhibits hereto and Project Plan(s) pursuant to this Agreement) constitutes the entire and only agreement between the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof, and supersedes all proposals, prior negotiations, representations, understandings and agreements between the Parties relating to the subject matter of this Agreement and of past dealings or industry custom. 18.2 Notices. 18.2.1 Notices hereunder shall be in writing and shall be deemed to have been duly given if personally delivered or when sent by facsimile or other telegraphic means. Such notices shall be effective upon receipt, if by personal delivery, or if by facsimile, on the date of the confirmation of "ok" transmission. Addresses and persons to be notified may be changed by either Party by giving written notice thereof to the other Party. For Surgica: Surgica Corporation 5090 Robert J.
