Page 3 of 13

information which is in the public domain during the period of service of Consultant, provided such information is not in the public domain as a consequence of disclosure by Consultant in violation of this Agreement or by any other party in violation of a confidentiality or non­ disclosure agreement with the Company. Upon termination of Consultant's engagement for any reason, or whenever requested by the Company, Consultant shall promptly deliver to the Company any and all Confidential Information, and all copies thereof, including but not limited to, documents, data, papers and records of any nature and in any medium (including, but not limited to, electronic media) in his possession or subject to his control that (i) belong to the Company or the Company Entities or (ii) contain or reflect any information concerning the Company, the Company Entities and affiliates. Consultant hereby acknowledges that the sale or unauthorized use, duplication or disclosure of any Confidential Information by any mean whatsoever and any time before, during or after the Consultant’s engagement with the Company shall constitute a material breach of this Agreement.


(e)Remedies for Breach; Injunctive Relief. The Company and Consultant agree that any restrictive covenants contained in this Agreement are severable and separate, and the unenforceability of any specific covenant herein shall not affect the validity of any other covenant set forth herein. Consultant acknowledges that by virtue of his position with the Company, Consultant will be given access to the Company's and the Company subsidiaries' trade secrets and Confidential Information. Consultant acknowledges that the Company will suffer irreparable harm as a result of a breach of such restrictive covenant by Consultant for which an adequate monetary remedy does not exist and a remedy at law may prove to be inadequate. Accordingly, in the event of any actual or threatened breach by Consultant of any provision of this Agreement, the Company shall, in addition to any other remedies permitted by law, be entitled to obtain remedies in equity, including, but not limited to, specific performance, injunctive relief, a temporary restraining order, and/or a preliminary and/or permanent injunction in any court of competent jurisdiction, to prevent or otherwise restrain a breach of this Section 5 without the necessity of proving damages, posting a bond or other security, and to recover any and all costs and expenses, including reasonable counsel fees, incurred in enforcing this Agreement against Consultant, and Consultant hereby consents to the entry of such relief against his and agrees not to contest such entry. Such relief shall be in addition to, and not in substitution of, any other remedies available to the Company. Consultant shall not defend on the basis that there is an adequate remedy at law. In addition to and not in lieu of any other remedy that the Company may have under this Section 5 or otherwise, in the event of any breach of any provision of this Section 5 during the period during which Consultant is entitled to receive payments and Benefits pursuant to Section 7, such period shall terminate as of the date of such breach and Consultant shall not thereafter be entitled to receive any salary or other payments or Benefits under this Agreement. 


(f)Modification and Survival. Consultant hereby agrees that each provision in this Section shall be treated as a separate and independent clause, and the unenforceability of any one clause shall in no way impair the enforceability of any of the other clauses herein. The parties agree and acknowledge that the duration, scope and geographic area of the covenants described in this Section 5 are fair, reasonable and necessary in order to protect the Confidential Information, goodwill and other legitimate interests of the Company and that adequate consideration has been received by Consultant and Consultant for such obligations. Consultant further acknowledge that after termination of his engagement with the Company for any reason, he will be able to earn a livelihood without violating the covenants described in this Section 5 and Consultant's ability to earn a livelihood without violating such covenants is a material condition to his engagement with the Company. If, however, for any reason any court of competent jurisdiction determines that the restrictions in this Section 5 are 

Page 4 of 13

not reasonable, that consideration is inadequate or that Consultant has been prevented unlawfully from earning a livelihood, such restrictions shall be interpreted, modified or rewritten to include the maximum duration, scope and geographic area identified in this Section 5 as will render such restrictions valid and enforceable. It is the intent of the parties that this section be enforced to the greatest extent allowable in law or equity. The terms of this Section 5, shall survive the termination or expiration of Consultant's engagement with the Company and this Agreement, but only to the extent of the time limitations as set forth herein.

6.Proprietary Rights. 


(a)Property Rights; Intellectual Property. All documents, notes, sales and marketing strategies, projections, forecasts, business plans and presentations, sales and revenue projections or estimates, created by Consultant at any time during the Term or any extension thereof, including without limitation the Consultant's work product, are works for hire and shall be the exclusive property of the Company, and the Company Entities in perpetuity (the “Property Rights”). The Company and the Company Entities own or shall own all right, title and interest throughout the Universe, in any of Consultant's and the Company's and the Company Entities work product and all copyright, trademark and other intellectual property rights in and related thereto throughout the Universe, in perpetuity (“Intellectual Property”). All documents or other tangible property and concepts or inventions, including Internet and other electronic media, relating in any way to the business of the Company or the Company Entities which are conceived or generated by Consultant or come into Consultant's possession during or by virtue of his engagement with the Company shall be and remain the property of the Company and the Company Entities. Consultant must return all such documents and tangible property to the Company on termination of this Agreement for any reason or at such earlier time as the Company may request in writing. 


(b)Works Made for Hire. Consultant acknowledges and agrees that Consultant is and has been retained by the Company to create work product and on a work- made­ for-hire basis for the Company. In this regard, the Company, and not Consultant, is the sole and exclusive owner of authorship and ownership of all right, title and interest in and to any part of the work product, and any portion of the fruit, proceeds, lay-outs, story boards, slogans, designs, flow charts, etc., created, written, developed, finished, produced, disclosed or acquired by Consultant, alone or in collaboration with others, during Consultant's engagement with the Company (collectively, the “Work Product”) and any portion of the Intellectual Property are deemed to vest in or be owned by the Company as a work-made-for- hire or by operation of law or otherwise. Notwithstanding the foregoing, upon the termination of the Agreement or earlier termination, the Company has the right to use any Work Product, Property Rights, and Intellectual Rights in perpetuity. Insofar as the authorship and ownership of all right, title and interest in and to any part of the Work Product and any portion of the Intellectual Property are not deemed to vest in or be owned by the Company as a work-made­ for-hire or by operation of law or otherwise, Consultant agrees to and hereby does assign, sell, transfer, grant and convey to the Company (without the necessity of any further consideration, documentation or further acts by either party) the entirety of whatever right, title and interest Consultant has in the Intellectual Property. At the Company's request, Consultant shall execute any documents reasonably required by the Company to confirm, establish, record, file applications for, renew or maintain the Company's rights and ownership in the Intellectual Property worldwide and will cooperate fully with the Company in connection with any or all of these efforts. The Work Product constitutes “work made for hire” as such term is defined in Section 101 of the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976 (17 U.S.C. §101), as amended, such that all copyrights in such work product, in any and all media and through all forms of communication 

Page 5 of 13

or transmission, whether presently known or hereafter developed, are the exclusive property of the Company. If, for any reason, the Work Product does not qualify as “work made for hire,” Consultant is deemed to have hereby irrevocably sold, assigned and transferred to the Company all such copyrights.


7.Termination. The Company has the right to terminate this Agreement and Consultant’s engagement with the Company on the earlier of (i) the expiration of the Term or (ii) the first to occur of any of the following: 


(a)Death. This Agreement shall automatically terminate upon the date of Consultant’s death.

Material disclosure or use of Confidential Information, other than as required in the performance of Consultant’s duties under this Agreement or as required by law;
