     (y) to the extent not otherwise included, all Proceeds, Supporting Obligations and products of any and all of the foregoing and all collateral security and guarantees given by any Person with respect to any of the foregoing;
provided, however, that notwithstanding any of the other provisions set forth in this Article 2 (and notwithstanding any recording of the Agent’s Lien in the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office or other registry office in any jurisdiction), this Agreement shall not constitute a grant of a security interest in, and the Collateral shall not include, (i) any property or assets constituting “Excluded Property” in the Indenture or (ii) any property to the extent that such grant of a security interest is prohibited by any applicable Law of an Official Body, requires a consent not obtained of any Official Body pursuant to such Law or is prohibited by, or constitutes a breach or default under or results in the termination of or gives rise to any right of acceleration, modification or cancellation or requires any consent not obtained under, any contract, license, agreement, instrument or other document evidencing or giving rise to such property or, in the case of any Investment Property, or Pledged Note, any applicable shareholder or similar agreement governing such Investment Property, or Pledged Note, except to the extent that such Law or the term in such contract, license, agreement, instrument or other document or shareholder or similar agreement providing for such prohibition, breach, default or termination or requiring such consent is ineffective under applicable Law including Sections 9-406, 9-407, 9-408 or 9-409 of the New York UCC (or any successor provision or provisions); provided, further, that no security interest shall be granted in United States “intent-to-use” trademark or service mark applications unless and until acceptable evidence of use of the trademark or service mark has been filed with and accepted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office pursuant to Section 1(c) or Section 1(d) of the Lanham Act (U.S.C. 1051, et. seq.), and to the extent that, and solely during the period in which, the grant of a security interest therein would impair the validity or enforceability of such intent-to-use trademark or service mark applications under applicable federal Law.

The Agent agrees that, at any Grantor’s reasonable request and expense, it will provide such Grantor confirmation that the assets described in this paragraph are in fact excluded from the Collateral during such limited period only upon receipt of an Officers’ Certificate or an Opinion of Counsel to that effect. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event that Rule 3-16 of Regulation S-X under the Securities Act requires (or is replaced with another rule or regulation, or any other law, rule or regulation is adopted, which would require) the filing with the SEC of separate financial statements of any Grantor, then the capital stock or other securities of such Grantor, shall automatically be deemed released and not to be and not to have been part of the Collateral but only to the extent necessary to not be subject to such requirement. In such event, this Agreement may be amended or modified,

8


 

without the consent of any Noteholder, upon the Agent’s receipt of a written authorization from the Issuer stating that such amendment is permitted hereunder, which the Agent shall be entitled to conclusively rely upon, to the extent necessary to evidence the release of the lien created hereby on the shares of capital stock or other securities that are so deemed to no longer constitute part of the Collateral.
ARTICLE 3
Representations and Warranties
     To induce the Noteholders to purchase the Secured Notes, each Grantor hereby represents and warrants to the Agent and each other Secured Party that:
     Section 3.01. Title; No Other Liens.

     (b) At any time and from time to time, and at the sole expense of such Grantor, such Grantor will promptly and duly execute and deliver, and have recorded, such further instruments and documents and take such further actions as shall be required by applicable law for the purpose of obtaining, perfecting or preserving the security interests purported to be granted under this Agreement and of the rights and remedies herein granted, including, without limitation, (i) filing any financing or continuation statements under the Uniform Commercial Code (or other similar laws) in effect in any jurisdiction with respect to the security interests created hereby and (ii) in the case of the Deposit Accounts, Investment Property, Letter of Credit Rights and the Securities Accounts and any other relevant Collateral, taking any actions necessary to enable the Agent to obtain “control” (within the meaning of the applicable Uniform Commercial Code) with respect thereto, provided that the Grantor shall not be required to take any of the actions set forth in this clause (ii) with respect to Excluded Accounts.
     (c) If any Grantor shall at any time acquire a Commercial Tort Claim, in which the claim amount individually exceeds $2,000,000, such Grantor shall promptly notify the Agent in a writing signed by such Grantor of the details thereof and grant to the Agent for the benefit of the Secured Parties in such writing a security interest therein and in the Proceeds thereof, with such writing to be in form and substance required by applicable law and such writing shall constitute a supplement to Schedule A hereto.

The Agent shall endeavor to provide the Issuer with notice at or about the time of the exercise of its rights pursuant to the preceding sentence, provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not in any way compromise or adversely affect the exercise of any rights or remedies hereunder. If requested in writing by the Agent at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, any payments of Receivables, when collected by any Grantor, (i) shall be forthwith (and, in any event, within two Business Days) deposited by such Grantor in the exact form received, duly indorsed by such Grantor to the Agent if required, in a Collateral Account maintained under the sole dominion and control of the Agent, subject to withdrawal by the Agent for the account of the Secured Parties only as provided in Section 6.04, and (ii) until so turned over, shall be held

12


 

by such Grantor in trust for the Agent and the Secured Parties, segregated from other funds of such Grantor.
     (c) At the Agent’s written request at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Grantor shall deliver to the Agent all original and other documents evidencing, and relating to, the agreements and transactions which gave rise to the Receivables, including without limitation, all original orders, invoices and shipping receipts.
     Section 6.02. Communications with Obligors: Grantors Remain Liable.
     (a) The Agent in its own name or in the name of others may after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default communicate with obligors under the Receivables and parties to the Contracts to verify with them to the Agent’s satisfaction the existence, amount and terms of any Receivables or Contracts. The Agent shall endeavor to provide the Issuer with notice at or about the time of the exercise of its rights pursuant to the preceding sentence, provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not in any way compromise or adversely affect the exercise of any rights or remedies hereunder.
     (b) Upon the written request of the Agent at any time after the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, each Grantor shall notify obligors on the Receivables and parties to the Contracts that the Receivables and the Contracts, as the case may be, have been assigned to the Agent for the ratable benefit of the Secured Parties and that payments in respect thereof shall be made directly to the Agent.
     (c) Anything herein to the contrary notwithstanding, each Grantor shall remain liable under each of the Receivables and Contracts to observe and perform all the conditions and obligations to be observed and performed by it thereunder, all in accordance with the terms of any agreement giving rise thereto. Neither the Agent nor any Secured Party shall have any obligation or liability under any Receivable (or any agreement giving rise thereto) or Contract by reason of or arising out of this Agreement or the receipt by the Agent or any Secured Party of any payment relating thereto, nor shall the Agent or any Secured Party be obligated in any manner to perform any of the obligations of any Grantor under or pursuant to any Receivable (or any agreement giving rise thereto) or Contract, to make any payment, to make any inquiry as to the nature or the sufficiency of any payment received by it or as to the sufficiency of any performance by any party thereunder, to present or file any claim, to take any action to enforce any performance or to collect the payment of any amounts which may have been assigned to it or to which it may be entitled at any time or times.
     Section 6.03. Proceeds to Be Turned Over to Agent. In addition to the rights of the Agent and the Secured Parties specified in Section 6.01 with respect

13


 

to payments of Receivables, if an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, upon written request from the Agent, all Proceeds received by any Grantor consisting of cash, checks and other near-cash items shall be held by such Grantor in trust for the Agent and the Secured Parties, segregated from other funds of such Grantor, and shall, forthwith upon receipt by such Grantor, be turned over to the Agent in the exact form received by such Grantor (duly indorsed by such Grantor to the Agent, if requested). All Proceeds received by the Agent hereunder shall be held by the Agent in a Collateral Account maintained under its sole dominion and control. All such Proceeds while held by the Agent in a Collateral Account (or by such Grantor in trust for the Agent and the Secured Parties) shall continue to be held as collateral security for all the Secured Obligations and shall not constitute payment thereof until applied as provided in Section 6.04.
     Section 6.04. Application of Proceeds. If an Event of Default shall have occurred and be continuing, at any time at the Agent’s election, subject to any Collateral Agency Agreement, the Agent may apply all or any part of the Collateral, whether or not held in the Deposit Accounts, the Securities Accounts or any other Collateral Account, first to the payment of all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind incurred by the Agent in connection with the sale, care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of the Agent and the Secured Parties hereunder, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees and disbursements, and then in payment of the Secured Obligations in the order set forth in Section 5.05 of the Indenture.
     Section 6.05. Code and Other Remedies. If an Event of Default shall occur and be continuing, the Agent, on behalf of the Secured Parties, may exercise, in addition to all other rights and remedies granted to them in this Agreement and in any other instrument or agreement securing, evidencing or relating to the Secured Obligations, all rights and remedies of a secured party under the New York UCC or any other applicable law. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Agent, without prior demand of performance or other demand, presentment, protest, advertisement or notice of any kind (except any prior notice required by law referred to below) to or upon any Grantor or any other Person (all and each of which demands, defenses, advertisements and notices are hereby waived), may in such circumstances forthwith collect, receive, appropriate and realize upon the Collateral, or any part thereof, and/or may forthwith sell, lease, assign, give option or options to purchase, or otherwise dispose of and deliver the Collateral or any part thereof (or contract to do any of the foregoing), in one or more parcels at public or private sale or sales, at any exchange, broker’s board or office of the Agent or any Secured Party or elsewhere upon such terms and conditions as it may deem advisable and at such prices as it may deem best, for cash or on credit or for future delivery without assumption of any credit risk. The Agent shall endeavor to provide the applicable Grantor with notice at or about the time of the exercise of remedies in the proceeding sentence, provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not in any way compromise

14


 

or adversely affect the exercise of such remedies or the Agent’s rights hereunder. The Agent or any Secured Party shall have the right upon any such public sale or sales, and, to the extent permitted by law, upon any such private sale or sales, to purchase the whole or any part of the Collateral so sold, free of any right or equity of redemption in any Grantor, which right or equity is hereby waived and released. Each Grantor further agrees, at the Agent’s request, to assemble the Collateral and make it available to the Agent at places which the Agent shall reasonably select, whether at such Grantor’s premises or elsewhere. The Agent shall apply the net proceeds of any action taken by it pursuant to this Section 6.05, after deducting all reasonable costs and expenses of every kind incurred in connection therewith or incidental to the care or safekeeping of any of the Collateral or in any way relating to the Collateral or the rights of the Agent and the Secured Parties hereunder, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys’ fees and disbursements, to the payment in whole or in part of the Secured Obligations, in such order as required by Section 5.05 of the Indenture, and only after such application and after the payment by the Agent of any other amount required by any provision of law, including, without limitation, Section 9-615(a)(3) of the New York UCC, need the Agent account for the surplus, if any, to any Grantor. To the extent permitted by applicable law, each Grantor waives all claims, damages and demands it may acquire against the Agent or any Secured Party arising out of the exercise by them of any rights hereunder. If any prior notice of a proposed sale or other disposition of Collateral shall be required by law, such notice shall be deemed reasonable and proper if given at least 10 days before such sale or other disposition.
     Section 6.06. Subordination. Each Grantor hereby agrees that, upon the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, unless otherwise agreed by the Agent, all Indebtedness owing to it by the Issuer or any Subsidiary of the Issuer shall be fully subordinated to the indefeasible payment in full in cash of the Secured Obligations.
     Section 6.07. Deficiency. Each Grantor shall remain liable for any deficiency if the proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral are insufficient to pay the Secured Obligations and the fees and disbursements of any attorneys employed by the Agent or any Secured Party to collect such deficiency.
ARTICLE 7
The Agent
     Section 7.01. Agent’s Appointment as Attorney-in-fact, Etc. (a) Each Grantor hereby irrevocably constitutes and appoints the Agent and any officer or agent thereof, with full power of substitution, as its true and lawful attorney-in-fact with full irrevocable power and authority in the place and stead of such

15


 

Grantor and in the name of such Grantor or in its own name, for the purpose of carrying out the terms of this Agreement, to take any and all appropriate action and to execute any and all documents and instruments which may be necessary or desirable to accomplish the purposes of this Agreement, and, without limiting the generality of the foregoing, each Grantor hereby gives the Agent the power and right, on behalf of such Grantor, without prior notice to or assent by such Grantor, to do any or all of the following:
     (i) in the name of such Grantor or its own name, or otherwise, take possession of and indorse and collect any checks, drafts, notes, acceptances or other instruments for the payment of moneys due under any Receivable or Contract or with respect to any other Collateral and file any claim or take any other action or proceeding in any court of law or equity or otherwise deemed appropriate by the Agent for the purpose of collecting any and all such moneys due under any Receivable or Contract or with respect to any other Collateral whenever payable;
     (ii) in the case of any Intellectual Property, execute and deliver, and have recorded, any and all agreements, instruments, documents and papers as the Agent may request to evidence the Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ security interest in such Intellectual Property and the goodwill and General Intangibles of such Grantors relating thereto or represented thereby;
     (iii) pay or discharge taxes and Liens levied or placed on or threatened against the Collateral, effect any repairs or any insurance called for by the terms of this Agreement and pay all or any part of the premiums therefor and the costs thereof;
     (iv) execute, in connection with any sale provided for in Section 6.05, any endorsements, assignments or other instruments of conveyance or transfer with respect to the Collateral; and
     (v) (A) direct any party liable for any payment under any of the Collateral to make payment of any and all moneys due or to become due thereunder directly to the Agent or as the Agent shall direct; (B) ask or demand for, collect, and receive payment of and receipt for, any and all moneys, claims and other amounts due or to become due at any time in respect of or arising out of any Collateral; (C) sign and indorse any invoices, freight or express bills, bills of lading, storage or warehouse receipts, drafts against debtors, assignments, verifications, notices and other documents in connection with any of the Collateral; (D) commence and prosecute any suits, actions or proceedings at law or in equity in any court of competent jurisdiction to collect the Collateral or any portion thereof and to enforce any other right in respect of any Collateral; (E)

16


 

defend any suit, action or proceeding brought against such Grantor with respect to any Collateral; (F) settle, compromise or adjust any such suit, action or proceeding and, in connection therewith, give such discharges or releases as the Agent may deem appropriate; (G) assign any Copyright, Patent or Trademark (along with the goodwill of the business to which any such Copyright, Patent or Trademark pertains), through the world for such term or terms, on such conditions, in such manner, as the Agent shall in its sole discretion determine; and (H) generally, sell, transfer, pledge and make any agreement with respect to or otherwise deal with any of the Collateral as fully and completely as though the Agent were the absolute owner thereof for all purposes, and do, at the Agent’s option and such Grantor’s expense, at any time, or from time to time, all acts and things which the Agent deems necessary to protect, preserve or realize upon the Collateral and the Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ security interests therein and to effect the intent of this Agreement, all as fully and effectively as such Grantor might do.
     The Agent shall endeavor to provide the Issuer with notice at or about the time of the exercise of its rights in the preceding clause (a), provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not in any way compromise or adversely affect the exercise of any rights or remedies hereunder.
     (b) If any Grantor fails to perform or comply with any of its agreements contained herein, the Agent, at its option, but without any obligation so to do, may perform or comply, or otherwise cause performance or compliance, with such agreement.
     (c) The expenses of the Agent incurred in connection with actions undertaken as provided in this Section 7.01, together with, if past due, interest thereon at a rate per annum equal to the interest rate on the 5.00% Notes (or, if no 5.00% Notes are outstanding at such time, the 2.00% Notes), from the date when due to the Agent to the date reimbursed by the relevant Grantor, shall be payable by such Grantor to the Agent upon not less than five (5) Business Days notice.
     (d) Each Grantor hereby ratifies all that said attorneys shall lawfully do or cause to be done by virtue hereof. All powers, authorizations and agencies contained in this Agreement are coupled with an interest and are irrevocable until this Agreement is terminated and the security interests created hereby are released.
     Section 7.02. Duty of Agent. The Agent’s sole duty with respect to the custody, safekeeping and physical preservation of the Collateral in its possession, under Section 9-207 of the New York UCC or otherwise, shall be to deal with it in the same manner as the Agent deals with similar property for its own account. Neither the Agent, any Secured Party nor any of their respective officers, directors, employees or agents shall be liable for failure to demand, collect or realize upon

17


 

any of the Collateral or for any delay in doing so or shall be under any obligation to sell or otherwise dispose of any Collateral upon the request of any Grantor or any other Person or to take any other action whatsoever with regard to the Collateral or any part thereof. The powers conferred on the Agent and the Secured Parties hereunder are solely to protect the Agent’s and the Secured Parties’ interests in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon the Agent or any Secured Party to exercise any such powers. The Agent and the Secured Parties shall be accountable only for amounts that they actually receive as a result of the exercise of such powers, and neither they nor any of their officers, directors, employees or agents shall be responsible to any Grantor for any act or failure to act hereunder, except for their own gross negligence or willful misconduct.
     Section 7.03. Execution of Financing Statements. Pursuant to any applicable law, each Grantor authorizes the Agent to file or record financing statements and other filing or recording documents or instruments with respect to the Collateral without the signature of such Grantor in such form and in such offices is required by applicable law to perfect the security interests of the Agent under this Agreement. Each Grantor authorizes the Agent to use the collateral description “all personal property” or “all assets” in any such financing statements.
     Section 7.04. Authority of Agent. Each Grantor acknowledges that the rights and responsibilities of the Agent under this Agreement with respect to any action taken by the Agent or the exercise or non-exercise by the Agent of any option, voting right, request, judgment or other right or remedy provided for herein or resulting or arising out of this Agreement shall, as between the Agent and the Secured Parties, be governed by the Indenture and by such other agreements with respect thereto as may exist from time to time among them, but, as between the Agent and the Grantors, the Agent shall be conclusively presumed to be acting as agent for the Secured Parties with full and valid authority so to act or refrain from acting, and no Grantor shall be under any obligation, or entitlement, to make any inquiry respecting such authority.
ARTICLE 8
Miscellaneous
     Section 8.01. Amendments in Writing. None of the terms or provisions of this Agreement may be waived, amended, supplemented or otherwise modified except in accordance with the Indenture. For the avoidance of doubt, the Issuer and the Agent may, without the need to obtain the consent of the Noteholders, amend, supplement or otherwise modify any provision hereof or of any other Noteholder Collateral Document (including by entering into any Collateral Agency Agreement or any other new or supplemental agreements) to reflect and give effect to the matters referred to in the definition of Collateral Agency

18


 

Agreement in connection with the incurrence of Additional Secured Obligations and the granting of Additional Pari Passu Liens, to the extent such incurrence or grant is permitted by, and in accordance with, the Indenture (which shall be established by and stated in an Officer’s Certificate and Opinion of Counsel which the Agent shall be entitled to receive prior to entering into any such amendment).

     Section 8.03. No Waiver by Course of Conduct; Cumulative Remedies. Neither the Agent nor any Secured Party shall by any act (except by a written instrument pursuant to Section 8.01), delay, indulgence, omission or otherwise be deemed to have waived any right or remedy hereunder or to have acquiesced in any Default or Event of Default. No failure to exercise, nor any delay in exercising, on the part of the Agent or any Secured Party, any right, power or privilege hereunder shall operate as a waiver thereof. No single or partial exercise of any right, power or privilege hereunder shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof or the exercise of any other right, power or privilege. A waiver by the Agent or any Secured Party of any right or remedy hereunder on any one occasion shall not be construed as a bar to any right or remedy which the Agent or such Secured Party would otherwise have on any future occasion. The rights and remedies herein provided are cumulative, may be exercised singly or concurrently and are not exclusive of any other rights or remedies provided by law.
     Section 8.04. Enforcement Expenses; Indemnification. (a) Each Grantor agrees to pay or reimburse each Secured Party and the Agent for all its costs and expenses incurred in enforcing or preserving any rights under this Agreement and the other Noteholder Documents to which such Grantor is a party, including, without limitation, the reasonable fees and disbursements of counsel (including the allocated fees and expenses of in-house counsel) to the Agent and the Secured Parties.
     (b) Each Grantor agrees to pay, indemnify against and to save the Agent and the Secured Parties harmless from, any and all liabilities with respect to, or resulting from any delay in paying, any and all stamp, excise, sales or other taxes which may be payable or determined to be payable with respect to any of the Collateral or in connection with any of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.
     (c) Each Grantor agrees to pay, and to save the Agent and the Secured Parties harmless from, any and all liabilities, obligations, losses, damages, penalties, actions, judgments, suits, costs, expenses or disbursements of any kind or nature whatsoever with respect to the execution, delivery, enforcement,

performance and administration of this Agreement to the extent the Issuer would be required to do so pursuant to Section 7.07 of the Indenture except those resulting from the Agent’s or any Secured Party’s willful misconduct or gross negligence.
     (d) The agreements in this Section 8.04 shall survive repayment of the Secured Obligations and termination of the Noteholder Documents and the resignation or removal of the Agent.
     Section 8.05. Successors and Assigns. This Agreement shall be binding upon the successors and assigns of each Grantor and shall inure to the benefit of the Agent and the Secured Parties and their successors and assigns; provided that except as permitted by the Indenture, no Grantor may assign, transfer or delegate any of its rights or obligations under this Agreement without the prior written consent of the Agent.
     Section 8.06. Set-off. Each Grantor hereby irrevocably authorizes the Agent and each other Secured Party at any time and from time to time while an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, without notice to such Grantor or any other Grantor, any such notice being expressly waived by each Grantor, to set-off and appropriate and apply any and all deposits (general or special, time or demand, provisional or final), in any currency, and any other credits, indebtedness or claims, in any currency, in each case whether direct or indirect, absolute or contingent, matured or unmatured, at any time held or owing by the Agent or such other Secured Party to or for the credit or the account of such Grantor, or any part thereof in such amounts as the Agent or such other Secured Party may elect, against and on account of the obligations and liabilities of such Grantor to the Agent or such other Secured Party hereunder and claims of every nature and description of the Agent or such other Secured Party against such Grantor, in any currency, whether arising hereunder, under the Indenture or any other Noteholder Document, as the Agent or such other Secured Party may elect, whether or not the Agent or any other Secured Party has made any demand for payment and although such obligations, liabilities and claims may be contingent or unmatured. The Agent and each other Secured Party shall endeavor to notify the Issuer promptly of any such set-off and the application made by the Agent or such other Secured Party of the proceeds thereof, provided that the failure to give such notice shall not affect the validity of such set-off and application. The rights of the Agent and each other Secured Party under this Section 8.06 are in addition to other rights and remedies (including, without limitation, other rights of set-off) which the Agent or such other Secured Party may have.
     Section 8.07. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any number of separate counterparts (including by telecopy), and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.

21


 

     (d) agrees that nothing herein shall affect the right to effect service of process in any other manner permitted by law or shall limit the right to sue in any other jurisdiction; and

     (g) “Secured Obligations” shall mean all Indebtedness and other Obligations under the Indenture, the Secured Notes, the Guarantees (as defined in the Indenture) and the Noteholder Collateral Documents, together with any extensions, renewals, replacements or refundings thereof, and all costs and expenses of enforcement and collection, including reasonable attorney’s fees.

5


 

including 9-406, 9-407, 9-408 or 9-409 of the New York UCC (or any successor provision or provisions); provided, further, that no security interest shall be granted in any United States “intent-to-use” trademark or service mark applications unless and until acceptable evidence of use of the trademark or service mark has been filed with and accepted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office pursuant to Section 1(c) or Section 1(d) of the Lanham Act (U.S.C. 1051, et seq.), and to the extent that, and solely during the period in which, the grant of a security interest therein would impair the validity or enforceability of such “intent-to-use” trademark or service mark applications under applicable federal Law. After such period and after such evidence of use has been filed and accepted, the Grantor acknowledges that such interest in such trademark or service mark applications will become part of the Collateral. The Agent agrees that, at the Grantor’s reasonable request and expense, it will provide such Grantor confirmation that the assets described in this paragraph are in fact excluded from the Collateral during such limited period only upon receipt of an Officer’s Certificate or an Opinion of Counsel to that effect.
     3. The Grantor covenants and warrants that:
     (a) To the knowledge of the Grantor, on the date hereof, all material Intellectual Property owned by the Grantor is valid, subsisting and unexpired, has not been abandoned and does not, to the knowledge of the Grantor, infringe the intellectual property rights of any other Person;
     (b) The Grantor is the owner of each item of Intellectual Property listed on Schedule A, free and clear of any and all Liens or claims of others except for the Permitted Liens. No financing statement or other public notice with respect to all or any part of the Collateral is on file or of record in any public office, except as permitted pursuant to this Agreement or as permitted by the Indenture;
     4. The Grantor agrees that, until all of the Secured Obligations shall have been indefeasibly satisfied in full, it will not enter into any agreement (for example, a license agreement) which is inconsistent with the Grantor’s obligations under this Agreement, without the Agent’s prior written consent which shall not be unreasonably withheld except that the Grantor may license technology in the ordinary course of business without the Agent’s consent to suppliers and customers to facilitate the manufacture and use of the Grantor’s products.
     5. Agent shall have, in addition to all other rights and remedies given it by this Agreement and those rights and remedies set forth in the Security Agreement and the Indenture, those allowed by applicable Law and the rights and remedies of a secured party under the Uniform Commercial Code as enacted in any jurisdiction in which the Intellectual Property may be located and, without

6


 

limiting the generality of the foregoing, solely if an Event of Default has occurred and is continuing, Agent may immediately, without demand of performance and without other notice (except as set forth below) or demand whatsoever to the Grantor, all of which are hereby expressly waived, and without advertisement, sell at public or private sale or otherwise realize upon, in a city that the Agent shall designate by notice to the Grantor, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania or elsewhere, the whole or from time to time any part of the Intellectual Property, or any interest which the Grantor may have therein and, after deducting from the proceeds of sale or other disposition of the Intellectual Property all expenses (including fees and expenses for brokers and attorneys), shall apply the remainder of such proceeds toward the payment of the Secured Obligations as the Agent, in its sole discretion, shall determine. Any remainder of the proceeds after payment in full of the Secured Obligations shall be paid over to the Grantor. Notice of any sale or other disposition of the Intellectual Property shall be given to the Grantor at least ten (10) days before the time of any intended public or private sale or other disposition of the Intellectual Property is to be made, which the Grantor hereby agrees shall be reasonable notice of such sale or other disposition. At any such sale or other disposition, Agent may, to the extent permissible under applicable Law, purchase the whole or any part of the Intellectual Property sold, free from any right of redemption on the part of the Grantor, which right is hereby waived and released. The Agent shall endeavor to provide the Borrower with notice at or about the time of the exercise of remedies in the preceding sentence, provided that the failure to provide such notice shall not in any way compromise or adversely affect the exercise of such remedies or the Agent’s rights hereunder.
     6. All of Agent’s rights and remedies with respect to the Intellectual Property, whether established hereby, by the Security Agreement or by the Indenture or by any other agreements or by Law, shall be cumulative and may be exercised singularly or concurrently. In the event of any irreconcilable inconsistency in the terms of this Agreement and the Security Agreement, the Security Agreement shall control.
     7. The provisions of this Agreement are severable, and if any clause or provision shall be held invalid and unenforceable in whole or in part in any jurisdiction, then such invalidity or unenforceability shall affect only such clause or provision, or part thereof, in such jurisdiction, and shall not in any manner affect such clause or provision in any other jurisdiction, or any clause or provision of this Agreement in any jurisdiction.
     8. The benefits and burdens of this Agreement shall inure to the benefit of and be binding upon the respective successors and permitted assigns of the parties, provided, however, that except as permitted by the Indenture, the Grantor may not assign or transfer any of its rights or obligations hereunder or any interest herein and any such purported assignment or transfer shall be null and void.

7


 

     9. This Agreement and the rights and obligations of the parties under this agreement shall be governed by, and construed and interpreted in accordance with, the Law of the State of New York.
     10. The Grantor (i) hereby irrevocably submits to the nonexclusive general jurisdiction of the courts of the State of New York and the courts of the United States of America for the Southern District of New York, or any successor to said court (hereinafter referred to as the “New York Courts”) for purposes of any suit, action or other proceeding which relates to this Agreement or any other Noteholder Document, (ii) to the extent permitted by applicable Law, hereby waives and agrees not to assert by way of motion, as a defense or otherwise in any such suit, action or proceeding, any claim that it is not personally subject to the jurisdiction of the New York Courts, that such suit, action or proceeding is brought in an inconvenient forum, that the venue of such suit, action or proceeding is improper, or that this Agreement or any Noteholder Document may not be enforced in or by the New York Courts, (iii) hereby agrees not to seek, and hereby waives, any collateral review by any other court, which may be called upon to enforce the judgment of any of the New York Courts, of the merits of any such suit, action or proceeding or the jurisdiction of the New York Courts, and (iv) waives personal service of any and all process upon it and consents that all such service of process be made by certified or registered mail addressed as provided in Section 13 hereof or at such other address of which the Agent shall have been notified pursuant thereto and service so made shall be deemed to be completed upon actual receipt thereof. Nothing herein shall limit any Secured Party’s right to bring any suit, action or other proceeding against the Grantor or any of any of the Grantor’s assets or to serve process on the Grantor by any means authorized by Law.
     11. This Agreement may be executed by one or more of the parties to this Agreement on any number of separate counterparts (including by telecopy), and all of said counterparts taken together shall be deemed to constitute one and the same instrument.
     12. THE GRANTOR HEREBY IRREVOCABLY AND UNCONDITIONALLY WAIVES TRIAL BY A JURY IN ANY LEGAL ACTION OR PROCEEDING RELATING TO THIS AGREEMENT OR ANY OTHER NOTEHOLDER DOCUMENT AND FOR ANY COUNTERCLAIM THEREIN.
     13. All notices, requests and demands to or upon the Agent or the Grantor shall be effected in the manner provided for in Section 13.03 of the Indenture.
     14. In the performance of its obligations, powers and rights hereunder, the Agent shall be entitled to the privileges, powers and immunities afforded to it

as Collateral Agent under the Indenture. The Agent shall be entitled to refuse to take or refrain from taking any discretionary action or exercise any discretionary powers set forth in the Security Agreement unless it has received with respect thereto written direction of the Issuer or a majority of Noteholders in accordance with the Indenture. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained herein, the Agent shall have no responsibility for the creation, perfection, priority, sufficiency or protection of any liens securing Secured Obligations (including, but not limited to, no obligation to prepare, record, file, re-record or re-file any financing statement, continuation statement or other instrument in any public office).
