3.1           ProGaming shall own all right, title, and interest (including patent rights, copyrights, trade secret rights, mask work rights, trademark rights, sui generis database rights, and all other intellectual and industrial property rights of any sort throughout the world) relating to any and all reports, deliverables inventions (whether or not patentable), works of authorship, mask works, designations, designs, know-how, ideas and information made or conceived or reduced to practice, in whole or in part, by the Consultant during the term of this Agreement that relate to the subject matter of, or arise out of, the Services or any Proprietary Information (as defined in Section 4 below) (collectively, the “Inventions”).  The Consultant will promptly disclose and provide all Inventions to ProGaming.  All Inventions are work made for hire to the extent allowed by law and, in addition, the Consultant hereby makes all assignments necessary to accomplish the foregoing ownership.  The Consultant shall further assist ProGaming, at ProGaming’s expense, to further evidence, record and perfect such assignments, and to perfect, obtain, maintain, enforce, and defend any rights assigned.  The Consultant hereby irrevocably designates and appoints ProGaming as its agents and attorneys-in-fact, coupled with an interest, to act for and in the Consultant’s behalf to execute and file any document and to do all other lawfully permitted acts to further the foregoing with the same legal force and effect as if executed by the Consultant.

4.           Confidentiality and Non-Compete

4.1           The Consultant agrees that all Inventions and all other business, technical and financial information (including, without limitation, the identity of and information relating to customers or employees) the Consultant develops, learns, or obtains during the period over which the Consultant is providing the Services, that relate to the business or demonstrably anticipated business of ProGaming, or that are received by or for ProGaming in confidence, constitute “Proprietary Information” belonging to ProGaming.  The Consultant will hold in confidence and not disclose or, except in performing the Services, use any Proprietary Information.  However, the Consultant shall not be obligated under this paragraph with respect to information the Consultant can document is or becomes readily publicly available without restriction through no fault of the Consultant.  Upon termination and as otherwise requested by ProGaming, the Consultant will promptly return to ProGaming all items and copies containing or embodying Proprietary Information.  The Consultant also recognizes and agrees that Consultant has no expectation of privacy with respect to ProGaming’s telecommunications, networking or information processing systems (including, without limitation, stored computer files, email messages and voice messages) and that the Consultant’s activity, and any files or messages, on or using any of those systems may be monitored at any time without notice.

7.           Limitation of Liability

Subject to and without derogating from Section 8.2 below, neither party shall be liable hereunder for any indirect, special, or consequential losses or damages of any kind or nature whatsoever, including lost profits, regardless of whether arising from breach of contract, warranty, tort, strict liability or otherwise, even if advised of the possibility of such loss or damage, or if such loss or damage could have been reasonably foreseen.

8.           Relationship of the Parties.

8.1           This Agreement shall not be construed as an employment, agency, or joint venture agreement.  The Consultant and ProGaming agree that the Consultant shall be an independent contractor of ProGaming for all purposes.  The Consultant shall not participate in, nor be entitled to, any of ProGaming’s employee benefit plans, policies, or arrangements, and shall not be entitled to any compensation other than as provided and set forth in Section 2 above.

8.2           The Consultant agrees to indemnify and hold harmless ProGaming from any and all claims, losses, damages, liabilities, costs, and expenses, including attorneys’ fees, arising directly or indirectly from or in connection with a determination by a court or agency that the Consultant is not an independent contractor.

9.           Miscellaneous

9.1           Entire Agreement. This Agreement set forth the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any prior representations, understandings, or agreements, whether written or oral.

9.2           Assignment.  This Agreement and the services contemplated hereunder are personal to the Consultant and the Consultant shall not have the right or ability to assign, transfer, or subcontract any obligations under this Agreement without the written consent of ProGaming.  Any attempt to do so shall be void.  ProGaming may assign its rights and obligations under this agreement in whole or part.

9.3           Notices.  All notices under this Agreement shall be in writing, and shall be deemed given when personally delivered, or three days after being sent by prepaid certified or registered mail to the address of the party to be noticed as set forth herein or such other address as such party last provided to the other by written notice.

9.4           Equitable Relief.  Any breach of Sections 3 or 4 will cause irreparable harm to ProGaming for which damages would not be an adequate remedy, and, therefore, ProGaming will be entitled to injunctive relief with respect thereto in addition to any other remedies.

9.5           No Waiver. The failure of either party to enforce its rights under this Agreement at any time for any period shall not be construed as a waiver of such rights.

9.6           Modifications. No changes or modifications or waivers to this Agreement will be effective unless in writing and signed by both parties.

9.7           Severability. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be illegal or unenforceable, that provision will be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.

9.8           Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of Delaware without regard to the conflicts of laws provisions thereof.

9.9           Headings. Headings herein are for convenience of reference only and shall in no way affect interpretation of the Agreement.
