FOR VALUE RECEIVED the Borrower hereby promises to pay to the Lender the aggregate principal sum of _______________ dollars (U.S.$_____________) in lawful money of the United States (hereinafter referred to as the “Principal Sum”) one day after the thirtieth calendar day of the thirty-sixth (36th) month subsequent to the Effective Date (the “Maturity Date”) together with interest accruing on all amounts due and outstanding under this Note and commencing on the above-referenced Effective Date at the rate of ten percent (10%) per annum to be increased to twenty percent (20%) for any period that the Borrower is in Default hereunder (herein the “Interest”) with any such outstanding Interest to be payable in full to the Lender.  Any capitalized terms used but not defined herein shall have the meaning ascribed to them in the “Securities Purchase Agreement” dated _________, 2011 (the “Loan Agreement”) as entered into between the parties thereto.

1.            PAYMENT.  The Principal Sum and Interest hereby secured will be paid between the Borrower and the Lender or any intermediate holder hereof or any right of setoff or counterclaim; and the receipt of the Lender or the holders hereof for payment of such Principal Sum and Interest will be a sufficient discharge to the Borrower for the same.

(a)           Principal Sum.  Prior to the Maturity Date, the Borrower may prepay any portion of the Principal Sum and/or any accrued Interest thereon in whole or in part after 12 months subsequent to the Effective Date by providing Lender with 10 days’ notice of such prepayment (the “Prepayment Notice”).  At the Lender’s option, the Lender may accept prepayment in cash, shares of the Borrower’s common stock (“Shares”) or a combination thereof.  The Lender shall have 5 days from receipt of the Prepayment Notice to provide the Borrower w ith notice of whether it elects to accept prepayment in cash, Shares or a combination thereof, and if such notice is not provided by the sixth day, the Borrower may choose the prepayment method.



(b)           Interest.  The Borrower shall pay the Interest in cash trimonthly commencing at the end of the third month following the Effective Date.

(c)           Call. At any date after the one-year anniversary of the Effective Date, the Lender may provide notice (the “Call Notice”) to the Borrower that the Lender is calling a portion or all of the Principal Sum provided that such notice must be received by the Borrower at least thirty days prior to the date of any such forced payment (the “Call Date”).  Any such payment to be made pursuant to a Call Notice shall be paid in Shares using the Share Price.

(d)           Payment with Shares. If a payment is to be made in Shares, then the number of Shares paid shall be in an amount equal to the Principal Sum and/or any accrued Interest thereon divided by a per share price (the “Share Price”) of $0.15 (such Share Price to be adjusted accordingly upon the occurrence of any stock splits or stock dividends).   Borrower shall provide a certificate to the Lender representing the Shares the Lender is to receive within ten business days of the respective Maturity Date or Call Date.
(e)   Limitations on Conversions. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in this Note, this Note shall not be convertible by the Holder hereof, and the Company shall not effect any conversion of this Note or otherwise issue any shares of Common Stock pursuant to this Note, to the extent (but only to the extent) that the Holder or any of its affiliates would beneficially own in excess of 4.9% (the “Maximum Percentage”) of the common stock of the Company. To the extent the above limitation applies, the determination of whether this N ote shall be convertible (vis-à-vis other convertible, exercisable or exchangeable securities owned by the Holder or any of its affiliates) shall, subject to such Maximum Percentage limitation, be determined on the basis of the first submission to the Company for conversion, exercise or exchange (as the case may be). No prior inability to convert this Note, or to issue shares of common stock of the Company, pursuant to this paragraph shall have any effect on the applicability of the provisions of this paragraph with respect to any subsequent determination of convertibility. For purposes of this paragraph, beneficial ownership and all determinations and calculations (including, without limitation, with respect to calculations of percentage ownership) shall be determined in accordance with Section 13(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, and the rules and regulations promulgated thereunder. The provisions of this paragraph shall be implemented in a manner otherwise than in strict con formity with the terms of this paragraph to correct this paragraph (or any portion hereof) which may be defective or inconsistent with the intended Maximum Percentage beneficial ownership limitation herein contained or to make changes or supplements necessary or desirable to properly give effect to such Maximum Percentage limitation. The limitations contained in this paragraph shall apply to a successor Holder of this Note. The holders of common stock of the Company shall be third party beneficiaries of this paragraph and the Company may not waive this paragraph without the consent of holders of a majority of its common stock. For any reason at any time, upon the written or oral request of the Holder, the Company shall within one (1) business day confirm orally and in writing to the Holder the number of shares of common stock then outstanding, including by virtue of any prior conversion or exercise of convertible or exercisable securities into common stock. Each delivery by the Holder of a notice under Secti on 1(c) to convert or under Section 1(a) to accept payment in Shares will constitute a representation by the Holder that it has evaluated the limitation set forth in this paragraph and determined that issuance of the full number of shares of common stock of the Company requested by the Holder in such notice is permitted under this paragraph.

2.            Security.  This Note is secured to the extent and in the manner set forth in the Security Agreement with the Lender and other parties thereto.
