PATENT PROSECUTION, MAINTENANCE, & INFRINGEMENT
4.1 Prosecution & Maintenance.
4.1.1 Title to all PATENT RIGHTS pursuant to this Agreement shall reside in JHU.
4.1.2 The parties acknowledge that, under the Head License, JHU shall take primary responsibility for the prosecution and maintenance of all PATENT RIGHTS in the TERRITORY. JHU shall have primary responsibility for the PATENT RIGHTS prosecuted and maintained in any jurisdiction in the TERRITORY, and at INTIs expense, shall file, prosecute and maintain all such patents and patent applications that, subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, INTI has obtained a license hereunder. JHU shall have full and complete control over all patent prosecution matters in connection therewith under the PATENT RIGHTS in the TERRITORY, provided however, that Mayne Pharma shall (a) timely provide to INTI copies of non-confidential official actions and written correspondence with the USPTO regarding the PATENT RIGHTS in the TERRITORY, and (b) consult with INTI and allow INTI an opportunity to comment, which comments Mayne Pharma will consider and as appropriate, pass onto JHU.

Provided Mayne Pharma has provided INTI with at least *** advance written notice of any filing or response deadline or fee due date, by written notification to Mayne Pharma at least *** in advance of any filing or response deadline, or fee due date (or where Mayne Pharma has not provided sufficient advance notice, such shorter period such that INTI has at least *** to consider its election), INTI may elect not to have a patent application filed or not to pay expenses associated with prosecuting or maintaining any patent application or patent comprising the PATENT RIGHTS, provided that INTI pays for all costs incurred up to receipt of such notification. Failure to provide such notification can be considered to be INTIs authorization to proceed at INTIs expense. Upon such notification, on behalf of Mayne Pharma, JHU may file, prosecute, and/or maintain such patent applications or patent at its own expense and for its own benefit and any rights or license granted hereunder held by INTI or any SUBLICENSEE(S) relating to the PATENT RIGHTS which comprise the subject of such patent applications or patent and/or apply to the TERRITORY, shall terminate.
4.2 Notification. Each party will notify the other promptly in writing when any infringement by another is uncovered or suspected.
(a) Mayne Pharma shall have the first right to enforce any patent within PATENT RIGHTS against any infringement or alleged infringement thereof within LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY. Subject to Paragraph 4.5A, *** will pay all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees for litigation and opinion) incurred by *** in connection with such enforcement (Enforcement Costs). Before Mayne Pharma commences an action with respect to any infringement of such patents, INTI acknowledges and agrees that Mayne Pharma shall give careful consideration to the views of JHU and to potential effects on the public interest in making its decision whether or not to sue. INTI acknowledges and agrees that no settlement, consent judgment or other voluntary final disposition of the suit may be entered into without the prior written consent of JHU, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. This right to sue for infringement shall not be used in an arbitrary or capricious manner. INTI shall reasonably cooperate in any such litigation at *** expense, including in accordance with Paragraph
4.6. Should INTI seek the first right to enforce any patent within PATENT RIGHTS against any infringement or alleged infringement thereof within LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY, then it shall notify Mayne Pharma who will, if it consents, seek the consent of JHU (which consent INTI acknowledges may be withheld or granted subject to conditions by JHU acting in its discretion).
(b) If INTI elects not to pay Enforcement Costs in respect of a particular infringement in the TERRITORY, then it shall so notify Mayne Pharma in writing within *** of receiving notice that an infringement exists, and Mayne Pharma may, in its sole judgment and at its own expense, take steps to enforce any patent and control, settle, and defend such suit in a manner consistent with the terms and provisions hereof, and recover, for its own account, any damages, awards or settlements resulting therefrom, or may allow JHU to do so.
4.4 Patent Invalidity Suit. Mayne Pharma shall have the first right to defend any declaratory judgment action or similar proceeding (including post grant review before any patent office or inter partes review before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the USPTO) alleging invalidity of any of the PATENT RIGHTS where such action or similar proceeding is brought by a party primarily seeking to compete within LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY. Subject to Paragraph 4.5A, *** will pay all reasonable costs and expenses (including reasonable attorney fees for litigation and opinion) incurred by *** in connection with such defense. INTI acknowledges and agrees that no settlement, consent judgment or other voluntary final disposition of the suit may be entered into without the prior written consent of JHU, which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld. Should INTI seek the first right to defend any declaratory judgment action or similar proceeding (including post grant review before any patent office or inter partes review before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the USPTO) alleging invalidity of any of the PATENT RIGHTS within LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY, then it shall notify Mayne Pharma who, if it consents, will seek the consent of JHU (which consent INTI acknowledges may be withheld or granted subject to conditions by Mayne Pharma or JHU (as applicable) acting in its discretion). If it is not clear whether a party is primarily seeking to compete within LICENSED FIELD or outside the LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY, then JHU may elect to take over the sole defense of the action at its own expense. INTI and Mayne Pharma shall cooperate fully with JHU in connection with any such action at JHUs expense.
4.5 Recovery. Any recovery by Mayne Pharma under Paragraph 4.3 shall be paid:
(a) first to *** to reimburse its Enforcement Costs; and
(b) following *** recovery of its Enforcement Costs, the Parties shall share equally in the recovery. If the Enforcement Costs exceed the recovery, then *** shall be credited against royalties payable by INTI to Mayne Pharma hereunder in connection with sales of LICENSED PRODUCT covered in the PATENT RIGHTS which are the subject of the infringement suit in the TERRITORY, provided, however, that any such credit under this Paragraph shall not exceed *** of the royalties otherwise payable to Mayne Pharma with regard to sales in the TERRITORY in any one calendar year, with any excess credit being carried forward to future calendar years.

(b) Mayne Pharma obtaining the express consent of INTI prior to selecting counsel, bringing any suit in INTIs name, or entering into any settlement, consent judgment or other voluntary final disposition of the suit, such consent not be unreasonably withheld, except that if JHU consents to INTI enforcing any patent within the PATENT RIGHTS or defending any declaratory judgment action or similar proceeding alleging invalidity of any of the PATENT RIGHTS then INTI shall manage the conduct of any such enforcement or defense but will consult with Mayne Pharma on the same terms as would have applied under Paragraph 4.5A(a) and obtain the prior written consent of Mayne Pharma prior to the events referred to in Paragraph 4.5A(b), such consent not be unreasonably withheld.
4.6 Conduct of litigation where INTI is a party. Where it is necessary or desirable for INTI to be named as a party in any litigation referred to in Paragraph 4.3 or 4.4, INTI will do all acts and execute such legal papers as are reasonably requested by Mayne Pharma in connection with such litigation. The counsel selected by Mayne Pharma for the litigation (subject to the express consent of INTI, not to be unreasonably withheld) shall represent both INTI and Mayne Pharma. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if due to legal conflict, the parties cannot be represented by the same counsel, then each of JHU and Mayne Pharma shall have the right to retain its own separate legal counsel, in which case, the fees of such separate legal counsel shall still be paid by INTI.

JHU and the Inventors will have no legal liability exposure to third parties if JHU does not license the LICENSED PRODUCT(S) and LICENSED SERVICE(S), and any royalties JHU and the Inventors may receive under the Head License is not adequate compensation for such legal liability exposure. Therefore, JHU requires INTI to protect JHU and Inventors from such exposure to the same manner and extent to which insurance, if available, would protect JHU and Inventors. Furthermore, JHU and the Inventors will not, under the provisions of the Head License, this Agreement or otherwise, have control over the manner in which INTI or any SUBLICENSEE(S) or those operating for its account or third parties who purchase LICENSED PRODUCT(S) or LICENSED SERVICE(S) from any of the foregoing entities, develop, manufacture, market or practice the inventions of LICENSED PRODUCT(S) and LICENSED SERVICE(S). Therefore,
INTI and any SUBLICENSEE shall indemnify, defend with counsel reasonably acceptable to JHU, and hold JHU, The Johns Hopkins Health Systems, their present and former trustees, officers, Inventors of PATENT RIGHTS (other than HHMI employees), agents, faculty, employees and students harmless as against any judgments, fees, expenses, or other costs arising from or incidental to any product liability or other lawsuit, claim, demand or other action brought as a consequence of the practice of said inventions by any of the foregoing entities, whether or not JHU or said Inventors, either jointly or severally, is named as a party defendant in any such lawsuit and whether or not JHU or the Inventors are alleged to be negligent or otherwise responsible for any injuries to persons or property. Practice of the inventions covered by LICENSED PRODUCT(S) and LICENSED SERVICE(S), by an agent or any SUBLICENSEE(S) or a third party on behalf of or for the account of INTI or by a third party who purchases LICENSED PRODUCT(S) and LICENSED SERVICE(S) from INTI, shall be considered INTIs practice of said inventions for purposes of this Paragraph. The obligation of INTI to defend and indemnify as set out in this Paragraph shall survive the termination of this Agreement, shall continue even after assignment of rights and responsibilities to an AFFILIATED COMPANY (but not any other assignment by INTI in accordance with Paragraph 10.8), and shall not be limited by any other limitation of liability elsewhere in this Agreement.
7.2 HHMI Indemnification. The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), and its trustees, officers, employees, and agents (collectively, HHMI INDEMNITEES), will be indemnified, defended by counsel reasonably acceptable to HHMI, and held harmless by INTI from and against any claim, liability, cost, expense, damage, deficiency, loss, or obligation, of any kind or nature (including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys fees and other costs and expenses of defense) (collectively, Claims), based upon, arising out of, or otherwise relating to this Agreement, including without limitation any cause of action relating to product liability. The previous sentence will not apply to any Claim that is determined with finality by a court of competent jurisdiction to result solely from the gross negligence or willful misconduct of an HHMI INDEMNITEE. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement, INTIs obligation to defend, indemnify and hold harmless the HHMI INDEMNITEES under this paragraph will not be subject to any limitation or exclusion of liability or damages or otherwise limited in any way. This provision shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement.
7.2 Indemnification Procedure. A party intending to claim indemnification under this Agreement (Indemnitee) shall promptly notify the indemnifying party (Indemnitor) in writing of any lawsuit, claim, demand or other action, or any judgments, fees, expenses or other costs in respect of which the Indemnitee intends to claim such indemnification. In the case of any HHMI INDEMNITEE, notice shall be given reasonably promptly following actual receipt of written notice thereof by an officer or attorney of HHMI. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the delay or failure of any HHMI INDEMNITEE to give reasonably prompt notice to an Indemnitor of any such claim shall not affect the rights of such HHMI INDEMNITEE unless, and then only to the extent that, such delay or failure is prejudicial to or otherwise adversely affects the Indemnitor. The Indemnitee reasonably shall cooperate with the Indemnitor in the defense of the lawsuit, claim, demand or other action, and the Indemnitor shall have the right to control the defense and/or settlement of the lawsuit, claim, demand or other action; provided, however, that any such settlement shall not require the Indemnitee (a) to admit any liability; (b) to pay any amounts; (c) impose any restriction on any HHMI INDEMNITEEs conduct of any of its activities; or (d) not include an unconditional release of all HHMI INDEMNITEES from all liability for claims that are the subject matter of the settled Claim, without the prior written consent of such Indemnitee. The Indemnitee shall use reasonable efforts to mitigate any fees, expenses or other costs.
8.1 Confidentiality. If necessary, the parties will exchange information in respect of the subject matter of this Agreement, which they consider to be confidential. The recipient of such information agrees to keep it confidential provided such information is marked as confidential at the time it is sent to the recipient, or if it is disclosed orally, summarised in writing and identified as confidential within *** after its presentation (provided that a failure to do so shall not detract from the obligations in this Paragraph where it was reasonably apparent that such information was confidential in nature). Without limitation, the recipient agrees to employ all reasonable efforts to maintain the information secret and confidential, such efforts to be no less than the degree of care employed by the recipient to preserve and safeguard its own confidential information. The information shall not be disclosed or revealed to anyone except employees of the recipient who have a need to know the information and who have entered into a secrecy agreement with the recipient under which such employees are required to maintain confidential the proprietary information of the recipient and such employees shall be advised by the recipient of the confidential nature of the information and that the information shall be treated accordingly.
The obligations of this Paragraph 8.1 shall also apply to any SUBLICENSEE(S) provided such information by INTI. Mayne Pharmas, INTIs, and SUBLICENSEES obligations under this Paragraph 8.1 shall extend until *** after the termination of this Agreement.
The obligations of this Paragraph 8.1 shall apply to confidential information exchanged prior to, on or after the EFFECTIVE DATE in connection with this Agreement or the transactions contemplated under it. To avoid doubt, the parties agree that nothing in this Agreement detracts from the restrictions on use and disclosure of confidential information under the Second Amended and Restated Supply and License Agreement, dated May 15, 2015, by and between Mayne Pharma Ventures Pty Ltd., an Affiliated Company of Mayne Pharma, and INTI.
8.2 Exceptions. The recipients obligations under Paragraph 8.1 shall not extend to any part of the information:
(a) that can be demonstrated to have been in the public domain or publicly known and readily available to the trade or the public prior to the date of the disclosure; or
(b) that can be demonstrated, from written records to have been in the recipients possession or readily available to the recipient from another source not under obligation of secrecy to the disclosing party prior to the disclosure; or
(c) that becomes part of the public domain or publicly known by publication or otherwise, not due to any unauthorized act by the recipient; or
(d) that is demonstrated from written records to have been developed by or for the receiving party without reference to confidential information disclosed by the disclosing party.
(e) that is required to be disclosed by law, government regulation or court order, or any applicable stock exchange.
8.3 Right to Publish. JHU may publish manuscripts, abstracts or the like describing the PATENT RIGHTS and inventions contained therein provided confidential information of INTI as contemplated in Paragraph 8.1, is not included or without first obtaining approval from INTI to include such confidential information. Otherwise, JHU and the Inventors shall be free to publish manuscripts and abstracts or the like directed to the work done at JHU related to the licensed technology without prior approval.
TERM & TERMINATION
9.1 Term. The term of this Agreement shall commence on the EFFECTIVE DATE and shall continue until the earlier of: (a) the date of expiration of the last to expire patent included within PATENT RIGHTS in the TERRITORY; or (b) notice by Mayne Pharma with immediate effect promptly after termination or expiry of the Head License in circumstances where Mayne Pharma no longer has the right to obtain an EXCLUSIVE LICENSE to make, have made, use, import, offer for sale and sell the LICENSED PRODUCT(S) and to provide the LICENSED SERVICE(S) in the TERRITORY under the PATENT RIGHTS in the LICENSED FIELD.
9.2 Termination By Either Party. This Agreement may be terminated by either party giving written notice to the other party, with effect immediately (or any later date specified in the notice), in the event that the other party (a) files or has filed against it a petition under the Bankruptcy Act, makes an assignment for the benefit of creditors, has a receiver appointed for it or a substantial part of its assets, otherwise takes advantage of or has any action taken in respect of it under any statute or law designed for relief of debtors, or (having regard to its legal structure and the jurisdiction in which it is incorporated or operates) any event analogous to one of the foregoing events happens to it or (b) fails to perform or otherwise breaches any of its obligations hereunder, if either (i) following the giving of notice by the terminating party of its intent to terminate and stating the grounds therefor, the party receiving such notice shall not have cured the failure or breach within *** or (ii) that failure to perform or breach is not capable of being cured. In no event, however, shall such notice or intention to terminate be deemed to waive any rights to damages or any other remedy which the party giving notice of breach may have as a consequence of such failure or breach.
9.3 Termination by Mayne Pharma. Mayne Pharma may terminate this Agreement with immediate effect by notice to INTI if the THIRD SLA expires or is terminated.

Upon termination, both parties shall cease any further use of the confidential information disclosed to the receiving
party by the other party. Termination of this Agreement, for whatever reason, shall not affect the obligation of either party to make any payments for which it is liable prior to or upon such termination. Termination shall not affect Mayne Pharmas right to recover unpaid royalties, fees, reimbursement for patent expenses, or other forms of financial compensation incurred prior to termination. Upon termination INTI shall submit a final royalty report to Mayne Pharma and any royalty payments, fees, unreimbursed patent expenses and other financial compensation due Mayne Pharma shall become immediately payable.

INTI and any SUBLICENSEE(S) shall allow at least fourteen *** notice of any proposed public disclosure for JHUs review and comment or to provide written consent.
10.1.2 Mayne Pharma acknowledges that under HHMI policy, Mayne Pharma, AFFILIATED COMPANIES and SUBLICENSEE(S) may not use the name of HHMI or of any HHMI employee (including Dr. Beachy) in a manner that reasonably could constitute an endorsement of a commercial product or service; but that use for other purposes, even if commercially motivated, is permitted provided that (1) the use is limited to accurately reporting factual events or occurrences, and (2) any reference to the name of HHMI or any HHMI employees, including Dr. Beachy, in press releases or similar materials intended for public release is approved by HHMI in advance.
10.2 No Partnership. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to create any agency, employment, partnership, joint venture or similar relationship between the parties other than that of a licensor/licensee.

10.3 Notice of Claim. Each party shall give the other or its representative immediate notice of any suit or action filed, or prompt notice of any claim made, against them arising out of the performance of this Agreement or arising out of the practice of the inventions licensed hereunder.
10.4 Product Liability. Prior to initial human testing or first commercial sale of any LICENSED PRODUCT(S) or LICENSED SERVICE(S) in the LICENSED FIELD in the TERRITORY, INTI shall establish and maintain product liability or other appropriate insurance coverage in the minimum amount of *** per claim and will annually present evidence to JHU or Mayne Pharma that such coverage is being maintained. Upon JHUs or Mayne Pharmas request, INTI will furnish it with a Certificate of Insurance of each product liability insurance policy obtained. Each of JHU, HHMI and Mayne Pharma shall be listed as an additional insured in INTIs said insurance policies. If such Product Liability insurance is underwritten on a claims made basis, INTI agrees that any change in underwriters during the term of this Agreement will require the purchase of prior acts coverage to ensure that coverage will be continuous throughout the term of this Agreement.
