6.  Covenant Not to Sue.


6.1  Subject to the excepted matters set forth herein (including, but not limited to the Confidentiality Requirements), the Releasing Parties agree that they will forever refrain and forbear from commencing, instituting or prosecuting any lawsuit, action or other proceeding, in law, equity, or otherwise, against the Released Parties, in any way arising out of or relating to the Released Claims.

Nothing contained in this Section, however, shall be interpreted or construed to prohibit or in any way to limit the right of a non-breaching Released Party or of any of its assigns to obtain, in addition to injunctive relief, an award of monetary damages against any person or entity breaching this Covenant Not to Sue and Agreement.

Similarly, the Releasing Parties agree that no fact, event, circumstance, evidence, or transaction which could now be asserted or which may hereafter be discovered relating to the subject matter discussed above, shall affect in any manner the final, absolute, and unconditional nature of the release set forth above.
