17.           Protection of Patents; Indemnification; Defense; Products Liability.
A. If the Licensee learns of any infringement of any Patents, Licensee shall promptly notify the Licensor of such information.  Upon learning of such information, the Licensor shall take such action as it deems advisable in its sole and absolute discretion for the protection of the Patents.
B. In order to induce the Licensor to enter into this Agreement, the Licensee agrees, on its own behalf and on behalf of its Agents, that they shall not during the Term and for a period of five (5) years from the date of termination of this Agreement (i) personally, or cause others to personally induce or attempt to induce any employee to terminate their employment with the Licensor; (ii) interfere with or disrupt the Licensor's relationship with its suppliers, vendors, customers or employees; or (iii) solicit or entice any person to leave their employ with the Licensor.
C. The Licensee agrees, on its behalf and on behalf of its Agents, that the duration, scope and geographic area for which the provisions set forth in Paragraph “B” of this Article “17” of this Agreement are to be effective are reasonable.  If any court of competent jurisdiction determines that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable by reason of such provision extending the covenants and agreements contained herein for too great a period of time or over too great a geographical area, or by reason of it being too extensive in any other respect, such agreement or covenant shall be interpreted to extend only over the maximum period of time and geographical area, and to the maximum extent in all other respects, as to which it is valid and enforceable, all as determined by such court in such action.  Any determination that any provision of this Agreement is invalid or unenforceable, in whole or in part, shall have no effect on the validity or enforceability of any remaining provision of this Agreement.
D. Any period of time set forth in this Agreement shall not be construed to permit the Licensee or its Agents to engage in any of the prohibited acts set forth in this Agreement after such period if such acts would otherwise be prohibited by any applicable statute or legal precedent.

18.           Indemnification.
A. Indemnification by the Licensee.  In order to induce the Licensor to enter into and perform this Agreement, the Licensee does hereby indemnify, protect, defend and save and hold harmless the Licensor and each of its shareholders, affiliates, officers, directors, control persons, employees, attorneys, agents, partners and trustees and personal representatives of any of the foregoing (“Indemnified Parties”), from and against any loss resulting to any of them from any material loss, liability, cost, damage, or expense which the Indemnified Parties may suffer, sustain or incur arising out of or due to a breach by the Licensee of the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in Article “10” of this Agreement or in any documents delivered pursuant hereto, or of a breach by the Licensee of any of its obligations pursuant to this Agreement or in any documents delivered pursuant hereto.
B. Indemnification by the Licensor.  In order to induce the Licensee to enter into and perform this Agreement, the Licensor does hereby indemnify, protect, defend and save and hold harmless the Licensee and each of its members, affiliates, officers, managers, control persons, employees, attorneys, agents, partners and trustees and personal representatives of any of the foregoing (“Indemnified Parties”), from and against any loss resulting to any of them from any material loss, liability, cost, damage, or expense which the Indemnified Parties may suffer, sustain or incur arising out of or due to a breach by the Licensor of the representations, warranties and covenants set forth in Article “9” of this Agreement or in any documents delivered pursuant hereto, or of a breach by the Licensor of any of its obligations pursuant to this Agreement or in any documents delivered pursuant hereto.
C. Reasonable Costs, Etc.  The indemnification which is set forth in this Article “18” of this Agreement shall be deemed to include not only the specific liabilities or obligation with respect to which such indemnity is provided, but also all counsel fees, reasonable costs, expenses and expenses of settlement relating thereto, whether or not any such liability or obligation shall have been reduced to judgment.
D. Third Party Claims.  If any demand, claim, action or cause of action, suit, proceeding or investigation (collectively, the “Claim”) is brought against an Indemnified Party for which the Indemnified Party intends to seek indemnity from the other party hereto (the “Indemnifying Party”), then the Indemnified Party within twenty-one (21) days after such Indemnified Party's receipt of the Claim, shall notify the Indemnifying Party pursuant to Paragraph “C” of Article “21” of this Agreement which notice shall contain a reasonably thorough description of the nature and amount of the Claim (the “Claim Notice”).  The Indemnifying Party shall have the option to undertake, conduct and control the defense of such claim or demand.  Such option to undertake, conduct and control the defense of such claim or demand shall be exercised by notifying the Indemnified Party within ten (10) days after receipt of the Claim Notice pursuant to Paragraph “C” of Article “21” of this Agreement (such notice to control the defense is hereinafter referred to as the “Defense Notice”).  The failure of the Indemnified Party to notify the Indemnifying Party of the Claim shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party from any liability which the Indemnifying Party may have pursuant to this Article “18” of this Agreement except to the extent that such failure to notify the Indemnifying Party prejudices the Indemnifying Party.  The Indemnified Party shall use all reasonable efforts to assist the Indemnifying Party in the vigorous defense of the Claim.  All costs and expenses incurred by the Indemnified Party in defending the Claim shall be paid by the Indemnifying Party.  If, however, the Indemnified Party desires to participate in any such defense or settlement, it may do so at its sole cost and expense (it being understood that the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled to control the defense).  The Indemnified Party shall not settle the Claim.  If the Indemnifying Party does not elect to control the defense of the Claim, within the aforesaid ten (10) day period by proper notice pursuant to Paragraph “C” of Article “21” of this Agreement, then the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to undertake, conduct and control the defense of the Claim (a failure by the Indemnifying Party to send the Defense Notice to the Indemnified Party within the aforesaid ten (10) day period by proper notice pursuant to Paragraph “C” of Article “21” of this Agreement shall be deemed to be an election by the Indemnifying Party not to control the defense of the Claim); provided, however, that the Indemnifying Party shall be entitled, if it so desires, to participate therein (it being understood that in such circumstances, the Indemnified Party shall be entitled to control the defense).  Regardless of which party has undertaken to defend any claim, the Indemnifying Party may, without the prior written consent of the Indemnified Party, settle, compromise or offer to settle or compromise any such claim or demand; provided however, that if any settlement would result in the imposition of a consent order, injunction or decree which would restrict the future activity or conduct of the Indemnified Party, the consent of the Indemnified Party shall be a condition to any such settlement.  Notwithstanding the foregoing provisions of this Article “18” of this Agreement, as a condition to the Indemnifying Party either having the right to defend the Claim, or having control over settlement as indicated in this Article “18” of this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall execute an agreement, in the form annexed hereto and made a part hereof as Exhibit “F”, acknowledging its liability for indemnification pursuant to this Article “18” of this Agreement.  Whether the Indemnifying Party shall control and assume the defense of the Claim or only participate in the defense or settlement of the Claim, the Indemnified Party shall give the Indemnifying Party and its counsel access, during normal business hours, to all relevant business records and other documents, and shall permit them to consult with its employees and counsel.

19.           Equitable Relief.  If the Licensee breaches this Agreement, the Licensor shall have the right, at its election, to obtain equitable relief including, but not limited to, an order for specific performance of this Agreement or an injunction, without the need to: (i) post a bond or other security, (ii) to prove any actual damage or (iii) to prove that money damages would not provide an adequate remedy.  Resort to such equitable relief, however, shall not be construed to be a waiver of any other rights or remedies which the Licensor may have for damages or otherwise.

20.           No Agency.  Except as provided for in this Agreement, neither party is the legal representative or agent of, or has the power to obligate the other for any purpose whatsoever; and no partnership, joint venture, agent, fiduciary, or employment relationship is intended or created by reason of this Agreement.  It is the intent of the parties hereto that each party shall be an independent contractor of the other.  Neither has the authority to assume or create any obligation or liability, express or implied, upon the other’s behalf or in its name or to bind the other in any manner whatsoever.  The Licensee shall not sign any document as an authorized person of the Licensor and none of its employees or shareholders shall hold themselves out as officers, directors, or shareholders of the Licensor, or as otherwise having any authority to enter into contracts binding upon the Licensor, or to create any obligations on the part of the Licensor; provided, however, that any employee of the Licensee who is an officer, director, shareholder or employee of the Licensor may utilize such authority as is appropriate to his or her position with the Licensor.  The Licensor shall not sign any document as an authorized person of the Licensee and none of its employees or shareholders shall hold themselves out as officers, managers, or members of the Licensee, or as otherwise having any authority to enter into contracts binding upon the Licensee, or to create any obligations on the part of the Licensee; provided, however, that any employee of the Licensor who is an officer, director, shareholder or employee of the Licensee may utilize such authority as is appropriate to his or her position with the Licensee.

D. Governing Law; Disputes.  This Agreement shall in accordance with Section 5-1401 of the General Obligations Law of New York in all respects be construed, governed, applied and enforced under the internal laws of the State of New York without giving effect to the principles of conflicts of laws and be deemed to be an agreement entered into in the State of New York and made pursuant to the laws of the State of New York.  Except as otherwise set forth in Article “19” of this Agreement, the parties agree that they shall be deemed to have agreed to binding arbitration with respect to the entire subject matter of any and all disputes relating to or arising under this Agreement including, but not limited to, the specific matters or disputes as to which arbitration has been expressly provided for by other provisions of this Agreement and that any such arbitration shall be commenced exclusively in New York, New York.  Any such arbitration shall be by a panel of three arbitrators and pursuant to the commercial rules then existing of the American Arbitration Association in the State of New York, County of New York.  In all arbitrations, judgment upon the arbitration award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction.  The parties specifically designate the courts in the City of New York, State of New York as properly having jurisdiction for any proceeding to confirm and enter judgment upon any such arbitration award.  The parties hereby consent to and submit to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York in any action or proceeding and submit to personal jurisdiction over each of them by such courts.  The parties hereby waive personal service of any and all process and specifically consent that in any such action or proceeding brought in the courts of the State of New York, any service of process may be effectuated upon any of them by certified mail, return receipt requested, in accordance with Paragraph “C” of this Article “21” of this Agreement.  Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to limit in any way any right to serve process in any manner permitted by law.
The parties agree, further, that the prevailing party in any such arbitration as determined by the arbitrators shall be entitled to such costs and attorney's fees, if any, in connection with such arbitration as may be awarded by the arbitrators.  In connection with the arbitrators’ determination for the purpose of which party, if any, is the prevailing party, they shall take into account all of the factors and circumstances including, without limitation, the relief sought, and by whom, and the relief, if any, awarded, and to whom.  In addition, and notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, a party shall not be deemed to be the prevailing party in a claim seeking monetary damages, unless the amount of the arbitration award exceeds the amount offered in a legally binding writing by the other party by fifteen (15%) percent or more.  For example, if the party initiating arbitration (“A”) seeks an award of one hundred thousand ($100,000) dollars plus costs and expenses, the other party (“B”) has offered A fifty thousand ($50,000) dollars in a legally binding written offer prior to the commencement of the arbitration proceeding, and the arbitration panel awards any amount less than fifty-seven thousand five hundred ($57,500) dollars to A, the panel should determine that B has “prevailed”.
The arbitration panel shall have no power to award non-monetary or equitable relief of any sort.  It shall also have no power to award (i) damages inconsistent with any applicable agreement between the parties or (ii) punitive damages or any other damages not measured by the prevailing party’s actual damages; and the parties expressly waive their right to obtain such damages in arbitration or in any other forum.  In no event, even if any other portion of these provisions is held invalid or unenforceable, shall the arbitration panel have power to make an award or impose a remedy which could not be made or imposed by a court deciding the matter in the same jurisdiction.
Discovery shall be permitted in connection with the arbitration only to the extent, if any, expressly authorized by the arbitration panel upon a showing of substantial need by the party seeking discovery.
All aspects of the arbitration shall be treated as confidential.  The parties and the arbitration panel may disclose the existence, content or results of the arbitration only as provided in the rules of the American Arbitration Association in New York, New York.  Before making any such disclosure, a party shall give written notice to all other parties and shall afford such parties a reasonable opportunity to protect their interest.
E. No Assignment by the Licensee.  The rights granted pursuant to this Agreement shall not be transferable by the Licensee, without the Licensor’s prior written consent.
F. Assignment by the Licensor.  This Agreement shall be transferable by the Licensor.
G. Construction.  Each of the parties hereto hereby acknowledges and agrees that (i) Mintz & Fraade, P.C. drafted this Agreement on behalf of both of the parties to this Agreement and (ii) this Agreement shall not, therefore, be construed more strictly against any party responsible for its drafting regardless of any presumption or rule requiring construction against the party whose attorney drafted this Agreement.
H. Entire Agreement.    This Agreement and all documents and instruments referred to herein (i) constitute the entire agreement and supersede all prior agreements and understandings, both written and oral, among the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and thereof, and (ii) are not intended to confer upon any person other than the parties hereto any rights or remedies hereunder.  Each party hereto agrees that, except for the representations and warranties contained in this Agreement, neither the Licensor nor the Licensee makes any other representations or warranties, and each hereby disclaims any other representations and warranties made by itself or any of its officers, directors, managers, employees, agents, financial and legal advisors or other representatives, with respect to the execution and delivery of this Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby, notwithstanding the delivery or disclosure to the other or the other's representatives of any documentation or other information with respect to any one or more of the foregoing.
I. Further Assurances.  The parties agree to execute any and all such other further instruments and documents, and to take any and all such further actions which are reasonably required to effectuate this Agreement and the intents and purposes hereof.
J. Binding Agreement.  This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto and their heirs, executors, administrators, personal representatives, successors and assigns.
K. Non-Waiver.  Except as otherwise expressly provided herein, no waiver of any covenant, condition, or provision of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made unless expressly in writing and signed by the party against whom such waiver is charged; and (i) the failure of any party to insist in any one or more cases upon the performance of any of the provisions, covenants or conditions of this Agreement or to exercise any option herein contained shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of any such provisions, covenants or conditions, (ii) the acceptance of performance of anything required by this Agreement to be performed with knowledge of the breach or failure of a covenant, condition or provision hereof shall not be deemed a waiver of such breach or failure, and (iii) no waiver by any party of one breach by another party shall be construed as a waiver of any other or subsequent breach of this Agreement.
 
 


 
L. Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed simultaneously in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the same instrument.

M. Facsimile Signatures.  Any signature which is delivered via facsimile shall be deemed to be an original and have the same force and effect as if such facsimile signature were the original thereof.

N. Modifications. This Agreement may not be changed, modified, extended, terminated or discharged orally, except by a written agreement specifically referring to this Agreement which is signed by all of the parties to this Agreement.

O. Exhibits.  All Exhibits annexed or attached to this Agreement are incorporated into this Agreement by reference thereto and constitute an integral part of this Agreement.

P. Survival.  All of the provisions and obligations of this Agreement shall survive the termination of this Agreement.

Q. Severability.  The provisions of this Agreement shall be deemed separable. Therefore, if any part of this Agreement is rendered void, invalid or unenforceable, such rendering shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the remainder of this Agreement; provided that if the part or parts which are void, invalid or unenforceable as aforesaid shall substantially impair the value of the whole Agreement to either party, that party may cancel, and terminate the Agreement by giving written notice to the other party.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties to this Agreement have set their hands and seals or caused these presents to be signed of the day and year first above written.
