Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Triggering Event shall have occurred, the Know-How License shall be extended to include the CSRA Field and the Commercial Field, other than the Restricted Area for the remainder of the Initial Term.

2.5
Grant of Trademarks License
(a)
Upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth in this Section 2.5, including Section 2.5(c), CSC hereby grants to CSRA and CSRA Subsidiaries a non-transferrable, non-assignable, royalty-free, non-exclusive, limited license to use the trademarks, service marks, logos, and domain names listed on Schedule 2.5(a), whether registered or unregistered (the “Licensed Marks”), within the CSRA Field, in connection with the operation, advertisement, marketing, promotion and support of the CSRA Business and the Licensed Products in accordance with the limitations set forth on Schedule 2.5(a), and in a manner not likely to cause confusion with the Unlicensed Marks (the “Trademarks License”), which Trademarks License shall expire at the end of the Wind-Down Period.
(b)
CSRA acknowledges and agrees, and agrees to cause all CSRA Subsidiaries and sublicensees to acknowledge and agree, that all right (including all Intellectual Property Rights), title and interest in the Licensed Marks are owned exclusively by CSC. No right, title or interest in any Unlicensed Marks are granted to CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries or any Third Party by this Agreement.
(c)
Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary, CSRA shall have no right under the Trademarks License to use the specific marks (i) “COMPUTER SCIENCES” or (ii) “CSC”. CSRA shall, and shall cause the applicable CSRA Subsidiaries to, (i) use its and their best efforts to promptly file amended articles of incorporation (or equivalent organizational documents) with the appropriate Governmental Entity changing its corporate or entity name to a corporate or entity name that does not contain “COMPUTER SCIENCES” or “CSC”, and (ii) provide CSC with any additional information, documents and materials that CSC may request to evidence those filings. None of the other Licensed Marks may be used by CSRA or CSRA Subsidiaries as a corporate or entity name, or trade name.
(d)
Other than the specific marks “COMPUTER SCIENCES” and “CSC”, which may not be sublicensed to any Person, CSRA and CSRA Subsidiaries may sublicense the Licensed Marks solely in writing in accordance with the Trademarks License to advertisers, distributors, vendors, dealers, suppliers and other Persons, solely for use in connection with the operation of the CSRA Business in a manner consistent with current practice and in accordance with and as expressly permitted by this Agreement until the expiration of the Wind-Down Period. CSRA shall be liable hereunder for any act or omission by a sublicensee or by any CSRA Subsidiaries that would constitute a breach of the Trademarks License or other terms hereof, as if committed by CSRA.
(e)
CSRA’s, CSRA Subsidiaries’ and any sublicensees’ use of the Licensed Marks shall comply with relevant elements of CSC’s trademark guidelines and applicable Laws. CSC further reserves the right to approve the quality and propriety of any goods or services using the Licensed Marks, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld, conditioned or delayed. It is the purpose of this provision to prevent uses of the Licensed Marks in a manner that are inconsistent with CSC’s high quality of goods and services or in a manner that might be offensive to ordinary and customary standards of exceptional service as determined by CSC, in its sole discretion, or that could undermine or damage the reputation of CSC. CSRA further agrees to furnish CSC, upon request, with sample specimens of each item bearing or displaying the Licensed Marks or pre-printed promotional literature, video, media production, web pages, or other marketing aids which CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, or any sublicensee proposes to use with and which incorporate the Licensed Marks. CSRA agrees that all advertising and promotional materials in which it and CSRA Subsidiaries and sublicensees use the Licensed Marks shall be truthful in all respects. CSC shall have the right to require CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries and any sublicensee to make reasonable changes to such literature or marketing aids, or to any goods or services, for the purpose of eliminating inaccuracies, to ensure compliance with the requirements of this section or otherwise to protect the Licensed Marks. CSC shall not be deemed to endorse the accuracy of, or assume any legal responsibility for the contents of, such promotional material or media presentations. CSRA and CSRA Subsidiaries may not modify, change or alter any Licensed Mark without the prior written consent of CSC. CSRA agrees that it shall not, directly or indirectly, do, omit to do, or permit to be done, any act that will or may dilute the goodwill associated with the Licensed Marks or tarnish or bring into disrepute the reputation of or goodwill associated with the Licensed Marks or CSC or that will or may invalidate or jeopardize any registration of the Licensed Marks. CSRA and CSRA Subsidiaries shall not purchase Internet keywords or domain names containing the Licensed Marks.
(f)
CSRA recognizes the ownership of, and great value of the goodwill associated with, the Licensed Marks as well as the mark “COMPUTER SCIENCES CORPORATION”. CSRA acknowledges that such goodwill belongs to CSC and that such Licensed Marks, as well as the mark “COMPUTER SCIENCES CORPORATION”, have inherent and/or acquired distinctiveness and are famous marks. Nothing in this Agreement gives CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, or any sublicensees any right, title, or interest in the Licensed Marks, except the right to use the Licensed Marks in accordance with the terms of this Agreement until the expiration of the Wind-Down Period. CSRA’s, CSRA Subsidiaries’, and any sublicensees’ use of the Licensed Marks shall inure to the benefit of CSC. CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and sublicensees, will not, and will not cause any other Person to, seek to register any marks for, containing, or confusingly similar to, the Licensed Marks. CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and sublicensees shall not, and shall not cause any other Person to, oppose or seek to cancel or challenge, in any forum anywhere in the world, including, but not limited to, the United States Patent and Trademark Office, any application or registration by CSC for the Licensed Marks, or any composite mark containing a Licensed Mark as an element of such composite mark. Further, CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and sublicensees shall not, and shall not cause any other Person to, object to, or file any action or lawsuit because of, any use by CSC of (i) the Licensed Marks, (ii) any composite mark containing a Licensed Mark, or (iii) any company name, corporate name, trade name, keyword, or domain name consisting of or containing any of the Licensed Marks, for or in connection with any goods or services, whether such use is by CSC directly or through CSC’s licensees, CSC Subsidiaries, or CSC’s authorized users; and CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and sublicensees will not, and will not cause any other Person to, take any other action that may adversely affect or contest CSC’s ownership of or right to use or the validity, incontestability or enforceability of the Licensed Marks, any composite mark containing a Licensed Mark, or the goodwill associated with the Licensed Marks.
(g)
CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and any sublicensees as permitted under this Agreement will display on materials utilizing or displaying the Licensed Marks any notice, marking, or indicia of ownership required by this Agreement or otherwise by CSC from time to time. CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, and any sublicensees as permitted under this Agreement will, in all material respects, use the Licensed Marks in a manner reasonably calculated to prevent the Licensed Marks from becoming generic or otherwise invalid.
(h)
CSRA agrees to notify CSC in writing, as promptly as reasonably practicable, of any of the following that may come to the attention of CSRA: (i) any adoption, use, or registration of any mark, trade name, trading style or corporate name, domain name, or designation which would infringe, impair or dilute, or tend to infringe, impair or dilute, the Licensed Marks, (ii) any challenge to CSC’s use, CSRA’s use, CSRA Subsidiaries’ use, or any sublicensees’ use of any Licensed Mark, or (iii) any claim made by any Person of any rights in any Licensed Mark.
(i)
Except as provided herein, CSC shall be responsible, at its sole discretion, for renewing and maintaining at CSC’s expense all trademark applications and registrations for the Licensed Marks. CSC may elect, for any reason, not to renew any applications and registrations for the Licensed Marks.
(j)
Nothing in this Agreement shall constitute any representation or warranty by CSC that any Licensed Mark is valid or that the exercise by CSRA, any CSRA Subsidiary, or any sublicensee of any rights granted under this Agreement with respect to any Licensed Mark will not infringe the Intellectual Property Rights of any Person.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if the Triggering Event shall have occurred, the NPS-Developed Products License shall be extended to include the CSRA Field and the Commercial Field other than the Restricted Area. For the avoidance of doubt, following the termination of this Agreement or expiration of the Initial Term, the NPS-Developed Products License shall remain in effect for the CSRA Field and the Commercial Field on a non-exclusive basis, including with respect to the Restricted Area.

(a)
All rights not specifically granted to CSRA herein are hereby retained by CSC. There are no implied licenses to any of the CSC Proprietary Items (or to any right, title or interest therein or part, portion or aspect thereof). CSRA covenants, and agrees to cause all CSRA Subsidiaries and require all other sublicensees to covenant, to take no action or commit any omission that would reasonably be expected to be adverse to CSC’s sole and exclusive ownership of all right (including all Intellectual Property Rights), title and interest in and to the CSC Proprietary Items and shall not (i) apply to register or cooperate in any effort by any Third Party to register any right (including any Intellectual Property Rights), title or interest in or to any CSC Proprietary Items anywhere in the world in connection with any products or services, (ii) challenge or participate in any challenge or diminution of CSC’s rights (including any Intellectual Property Rights) in the CSC Proprietary Items, or (iii) do anything else inconsistent with CSC’s rights (including any Intellectual Property Rights) in the CSC Proprietary Items. If, contrary to the intent of the Parties, it should occur that CSRA has any rights of ownership in the CSC Proprietary Items, CSRA hereby agrees, at any time upon the written request of CSC, to assign and to sell for ten dollars (US$10.00) to CSC any and all such rights of ownership as well as the entire right, title and interest to any such right (including any attendant goodwill), and CSRA agrees that it has not entered and shall not enter into any agreement with any Third Party, including any CSRA Subsidiaries or other sublicensees, or otherwise take or fail to take any action, that would prevent such assignment and sale. CSRA shall promptly upon request by CSC execute, without additional consideration, any assignment or other document that may be reasonably necessary or appropriate for CSC to purchase, take assignment or perfect its ownership interest or to memorialize, record or otherwise denote or demonstrate ownership by CSC of all right (including all Intellectual Property Rights), title and interest in and to any CSC Proprietary Items.
(b)
CSC shall be responsible, at CSC’s own expense, for, and shall make all decisions concerning, the preparation, filing, registration, prosecution, renewal, enforcement and maintenance of any Intellectual Property Rights in or covering any CSC Proprietary Item. CSRA agrees to, and agrees to cause all CSRA Subsidiaries and require all other sublicensees to, cooperate fully with, and provide reasonable assistance to, CSC in respect thereof, at CSC’s own expense.
(c)
In order to assign title to CSC in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, CSRA shall take all actions reasonably required to obtain title to inventions made in the performance of a Customer Contract, including providing timely notice to the Customer under such Customer Contract and electing to take title. CSRA shall seek an advance waiver of any Governmental Entity’s right to take title in those instances where such requests are required or permitted.
(d)
Unless CSC has provided its express, prior written consent (in accordance with CSC’s internal delegation of authority policy and procedures), CSRA shall not enter into any Customer Contract that includes FAR Clause 52.227-17, “Rights in Data - Special Works” or Department of Defense FAR Supplement Cause 252.227-7020, “Rights in Special Works,” or any other similar provision that grants any Governmental Entity a right to title to any CSC Proprietary Item.
(e)
CSRA shall set forth in written agreements with any sublicensee all applicable restrictions and obligations regarding CSC Proprietary Items as set forth in this Agreement. CSRA shall not grant any right to or fail to require any obligation from any permitted sublicensee that is inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement or reduces or eliminates protections of CSC Proprietary Items or CSC’s ownership of CSC Proprietary Items as set forth herein. CSRA shall expressly identify CSC as a third party beneficiary in all written agreements with any sublicensee.
(f)
CSRA shall set forth in written agreements with any Contractor all applicable restrictions and obligations regarding such Licensed Product or the Applicable Licensed Product Items as set forth in this Agreement.
2.8
Enforcement Actions
CSRA agrees to notify CSC in writing, as promptly as reasonably practicable, of any actual, threatened or alleged infringement, challenge, misappropriation, claim, impairment or violation of any Intellectual Property Rights relating to the Licensed Products, Licensed Know-How or Licensed Marks that comes to the attention of CSRA or a CSRA Subsidiary. CSC shall have sole and exclusive authority and discretion to take such legal action as it deems appropriate and control any dispute, claim, litigation, United States Patent and Trademark Office or other U.S. or foreign governmental or administrative proceeding, or other action arising out of any actual or alleged infringement, challenge, misappropriation, claim, impairment or violation of any Intellectual Property Rights relating to the CSC Proprietary Items and including any brought by a Third Party (an “Enforcement Action”). Unless the Parties otherwise agree, all costs and expenses related to an Enforcement Action shall be borne by CSC, and CSC shall be entitled to all monetary damages, fines, settlement payments, costs, attorneys’ fees, and other amounts (“Recoveries”) awarded to CSC as a direct result of an Enforcement Action. CSRA shall, and if requested by CSC cause CSRA Subsidiaries and any sublicensees to, at CSC’s expense, cooperate fully and promptly with CSC with respect to such Enforcement Action, in such manner and to such extent as CSC may reasonably request, including joining such Enforcement Action as a party. Nothing herein shall be construed as requiring CSC to take any action to bring or defend any Enforcement Action or to indemnify or hold harmless CSRA, CSRA Subsidiaries, or any sublicensees in connection therewith. During the Initial Term, in the event CSC provides written notice or confirmation to CSRA that it determines not to bring an Enforcement Action, CSRA may, with the prior written consent of CSC (which consent may be withheld by CSC for any reason in its sole discretion), bring an Enforcement Action with respect to any violation of the Licensed Products, Licensed Know-How or Licensed Marks that CSRA reasonably believes would have a material and adverse effect on its business; provided, however, that CSRA shall not compromise or settle any Enforcement Action without the prior written consent of CSC; provided, further that CSRA shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless (at CSRA’s sole cost and expense) CSC for any losses of CSC arising from or relating to such Enforcement Action brought by CSRA without CSC’s prior written consent, including, for the avoidance of doubt, any losses arising from any counterclaim to such Enforcement Action. Unless the Parties otherwise agree, all costs and expenses related to an Enforcement Action brought by CSRA shall be borne by CSRA and any Recoveries awarded to CSRA as a direct result of an Enforcement Action brought by CSRA shall belong to CSRA. CSC shall, if reasonably requested by CSRA and at CSRA’ expense, provide and cause its controlled Affiliates to provide reasonable cooperation with respect to any such Enforcement Action. For the avoidance of doubt, nothing herein shall be construed as requiring CSC to join as a party any Enforcement Action brought by CSRA.
