**CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED**
    to Licensee a fact sheet consisting of a rundown of such Program. Licensor, at its option, shall have the right, subject to Licensee’s reasonable technical specifications, upon at least sixty (60) days’ prior notice to Licensee, to deliver the Programs to Licensee via fiber in lieu of tape.
 
14.   Exhibition Commitment: During the Term, Licensee shall (a) Exhibit no less than **** “All Day Ticket” (“ADT”) each week on **** as shall be mutually agreed upon in writing by Licensor and Licensee, and Licensee agrees to consider a **** ADT if, in the exercise of its good faith business decision, it makes economic sense for Licensee to do so, and (b) Exhibit the premiere and encore of each Program in back-to-back blocks on Thursday or such other day as shall be mutually agreed upon in writing by Licensor and Licensee.
 
15.   Suggested Retail Price: With respect to each Program Exhibited on a Pay-Per-View Basis, $4.95.
 
16.   License Fee Payable to Licensor (SVOD Package): With respect to each Program Exhibited as part of the SVOD Package, subject to the applicable Standard Terms and Conditions, the monthly License Fee for Programs included in the SVOD Package shall equal (i) $**** for each hour of Programs included in the SVOD Package multiplied by (ii) the number of Subscribers to the SVOD Package on the first day of the month of such Program’s Exhibition.
 
17.   License Fee Payable to Licensor (Pay-Per-View Basis): With respect to each Program Exhibited on a Pay-Per-View Basis, subject to the applicable Standard Terms and Conditions (including, without limitation, the payment terms), the License Fee for such Program shall be determined as follows:
  (a)   with respect to Exhibitions on a VOD Basis, the greater of: (i) **** % of Gross Receipts, or (ii) $**** less applicable sales and use taxes; and

  (c)   Licensee shall retain as a distribution fee an amount equal to the sum of (i) **** percent (**** %) of Gross Receipts with respect to Exhibitions of Program(s) on a non-VOD Basis and (ii) **** percent (**** %) of Gross Receipts with respect to Exhibitions on a VOD Basis; it being understood that Licensee, at its expense, shall encode all Programs Exhibited by Licensee on a VOD Basis.

**CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED**
  (d)   In the event that at any time during the Term, Licensee eliminates the channel associated with its ADT programming and, as a result, is unable to fulfill its ADT obligation to Licensor as set forth in Section 14 above, then the Guaranteed License Fee and the amount of the letter of credit (or other mutually agreed upon security instrument) shall, effective as of the date of such elimination, be reduced to $****.
18.   Guaranteed License Fee. No portion of the License Fee payable to Licensor pursuant to Sections 16 and 17 above shall be payable to Licensor until such time that the Programs, in the aggregate, have generated sufficient Gross Receipts and SVOD Package revenues for Licensee to recoup a distribution fee equal to at least $**** for each calendar quarter (the “Guaranteed License Fee”), provided that if the Launch Date occurs on other than the first day of a calendar quarter or the expiration or termination of this Agreement occurs on other than the last day of a calendar quarter, then the Guaranteed License Fee for such calendar quarter shall be prorated based on the number of days during such quarter that the Programs are provided for Exhibition hereunder. For purposes of determining whether Licensee has recouped the Guaranteed License Fee for any calendar quarter, the amount of SVOD Package revenues to be allocated to Licensee as a distribution fee shall be equal to (i) $**** for each hour of Programs included in the SVOD Package during such calendar quarter multiplied by (ii) the aggregate number of Subscribers to the SVOD Package during such quarter as determined pursuant to Section 16 above (i.e., the sum of the number of Subscribers to the SVOD Package on the first day of each month during such quarter). Such Guaranteed License Fee shall be cross-collateralized such that Licensor may apply amounts in excess of $**** retained by Licensee as a distribution fee for any given calendar quarter against the Guaranteed License Fee due for future calendar quarters. No later than sixty (60) days prior to the Launch Date, Licensor, for the benefit of Licensee, shall secure a letter of credit or other mutually agreed upon security instrument in the amount of $****. If, for any calendar quarter during the Term, the sum of (i) the Gross Receipts, (ii) the SVOD Package revenues, and (iii) any amounts cross-collateralized as set forth in the preceding sentence, are insufficient for Licensee to recoup a distribution fee at least equal to the Guaranteed License Fee, and Licensor fails to pay the difference between the Guaranteed License Fee and the distribution fee recouped by Licensee for such quarter within five (5) business days of receipt of the Accounting Statement (as defined in the Standard Terms and Conditions) for the last month in such calendar quarter, then Licensee shall have the right to make a draw under the letter of credit (or other security instrument).
 
19.   Payment Terms: With respect to each Program, subject to the Standard Terms and Conditions, the date five (5) business days after the end of each Accounting Period therefor. “Accounting Period” shall mean, with respect to each Program: (a) a period commencing on the date on which such Program is first Exhibited on a Pay-Per-View Basis hereunder and ending on the date sixty (60) days thereafter (or, if such date is not the last day of a calendar month, the last day of the calendar month in which such date

-4-


 

**CONFIDENTIAL TREATMENT REQUESTED**
    occurs); and (b) each calendar month thereafter for so long as there are monies due and owing Licensor hereunder. Notwithstanding the foregoing, with respect to each Program, no License Fee shall be payable to Licensor until (i) the execution and delivery of this Agreement, (ii) delivery by Licensor of a copy of the endorsement of insurance with coverage as set forth in Section 22 of these Deal Terms, and (iii) until such time that Licensee has recovered its closed-captioning costs related to such Program.
 
20.   Sponsorship: While traditional advertising (i.e., interruption of programming for the insertion of thirty (30) or sixty (60) -second advertising spots) shall not be permitted without Licensee’s prior written approval, Licensor shall be entitled to include sponsorships (including product placement and signage of Licensor and its sponsors) in (and in conjunction with) any Program. Without Licensee’s prior written consent, Licensor shall not sell entitlement sponsorships in the prohibited categories identified in Exhibit D hereto. For the avoidance of doubt, Licensor’s product placement and signage shall not be subject to such prohibitions.
 
21.   Late Fees and Other Costs. In the event that, after delivery of a Program to Licensee, and subject to Section 6(c) of the Standard Terms and Conditions, Licensor makes any changes in any Program or its promotion (including cancellation), Licensor is responsible for all costs associated with these delays and/or changes including but not limited to editing, audio, communications (e.g., telecopies) and delivery of material, and shall pay to Licensee an amount equal to such costs not later than fifteen (15) days after Licensee’s delivery of documentation evidencing such costs. Notwithstanding anything herein to the contrary and without in any way limiting Licensee’s rights and remedies hereunder or otherwise including, without limitation, in an action at law to recover damages with respect to each Program if such Program is cancelled by or on behalf of Licensor or any performer for any reason, within thirty (30) days of such cancellation, Licensor will remit to Licensee the sum of $25,000, together with an amount equal to all amounts paid by Licensee for the marketing and promotion of such Program (such aggregate amount being herein referred to as the “Cancellation Fee”). In addition, with respect to each Program, Licensee will charge Licensor the following fees in the event of late delivery, or failure to comply with the terms hereof, with respect to the following: (i) 30-second video spot and any other advertising and publicity material, $25,000; and (ii) any tape of each Program hereunder, $25,000.
 
22.   Insurance Requirements: Not later than the Launch Date, Licensor shall procure and maintain in full force and effect standard producer’s liability (errors and omissions) insurance covering the Programs throughout the Territory with minimum limits of at least One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) for any claim arising out of a single occurrence and Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000) for all claims in the aggregate, which insurance shall include title coverage for the Programs and shall be written on either: (A) an occurrence basis, in which event it shall remain in full force and effect until the end of the License Period and may not be permitted to lapse, or (B) a claims-made basis, in which event it shall remain in full force and effect until the end of the License Period, shall cover any claims made at any time until the end of such License Period and shall include an extended reporting period of no less than one year after the expiration of such License Period and may not be permitted to lapse.

     (i) Severability. If any provision of this Agreement shall, for any reason, be held to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable in any respect in any jurisdiction, such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability: (i) shall not affect any other provision of this Agreement, but this Agreement shall be construed as if such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision had never been contained herein, and (ii) shall affect neither such provision nor this Agreement in any other jurisdiction. If, moreover, any restriction or other provision of this Agreement shall for any reason be held to be too broad as to duration, geographical scope, activity or subject, it shall be construed by limiting and reducing such provision or restriction so as to be enforceable to the extent compatible with applicable law, the parties hereby agreeing that said restrictions and other provisions of this Agreement are fair and reasonable as at the date hereof. The parties shall endeavor in good faith negotiations to replace the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions with valid provisions the economic effect of which comes as close as possible to that of the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provisions.
     (j) Independent Contractors. Licensor and Licensee are independent contractors with respect to each other. Nothing herein shall create any association, partnership, joint venture, fiduciary or agency relationship between them. Nothing contained herein shall be deemed to create a specific fund of any Gross Receipts or Licensor’s share thereof, or with respect to any other sums, or to give Licensor a lien on the rights granted to Licensee or the proceeds derived by Licensee from the exercise of such rights or to preclude Licensee from commingling any Gross Receipts with other monies, and Licensor waives any right to claim to the contrary. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, Licensee shall have no fiduciary obligation to Licensor, and Licensee shall not be deemed to have received any sums as an agent or fiduciary for Licensor’s account.
     (k) No Representation. Licensee has not made and shall not be required to make any representations or promises regarding the number of Program Subscribers who will order any Program, the amount of Gross Receipts which will be derived therefrom, or Licensor’s share of such Gross Receipts.
     (l) No Third Party Beneficiaries. Except as expressly provided to the contrary in Section 8 of these Standard Terms and Conditions, this Agreement is not for the benefit of any third party and shall not be deemed to give any right or remedy to any such party whether referred to herein or not.
     (m) Successors and Assigns. Subject to the provisions of Section 11(a) of these Standard Terms and Conditions, this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of each of the parties’ successors and assigns.
     (n) Joint Participation in Drafting this Agreement. The parties acknowledge and confirm that each of their respective attorneys have participated jointly in the drafting, review and revision of this Agreement and that each party has had the benefit of its independent legal counsel’s advice with respect to the terms and provisions hereof and its rights and obligations hereunder. Each party hereto, therefore, stipulates and agrees that the rule of construction to the effect that any ambiguities are to be or may be resolved against the drafting party shall not be employed in the interpretation of this Agreement to favor any party against another and that no
