LIMITED COPYRIGHT LICENSE: Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement,

Intel grants to Licensee a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable,

worldwide and royalty-free license under Intel’s copyrights to:

  1. Reproduce and prepare Derivative Works of

    the Object Code and Source Code solely for Licensee’s own internal use, to design,

    develop, modify or debug Derivative Works that operate in or in conjunction only

    with Intel Chipsets or Intel Processors as specified in Exhibit A;

    Code externally to Licensee’s End Users, either directly or through Licensee’s usual

    distribution channels and methods, but only for use with Intel Chipsets or Intel

    Processors as specified in Exhibit A. Licensee will distribute all Licensed Programs

    under an end user license agreement (“End User License”) containing at a minimum

    the terms and conditions set forth in Exhibit B.


ADDITIONAL CONDITIONS: The rights granted under this Agreement are also subject

to the following limitations:

  1. Licensee will not make any statement that

    the Derivative Works are "certified," or that performance is guaranteed, by Intel;

  2. Licensee will not disassemble, reverse engineer,

    or decompile any Object Code provided to Licensee.

  3. Licensee will not use Intel's name or trademarks

    without prior written permission; and

  4. Licensee may not disclose, distribute or make

    commercial use of the BLDK as a stand-alone product.


Except as specifically permitted in Sections 2.1, above, Licensee is not licensed

to use the BLDK in any other manner, including for Licensee’s other internal or

business use or for use in association with any other products. Licensee will not

license BLDK to any third party. Licensee will include all copyright notices in

all full and partial copies of the BLDK, including all Derived Source Code, and

will not deface, obscure or alter any copyright notices.


Licensee is not obligated to provide Intel with comments or suggestions regarding

Derived Source Code or the BLDK received under this Agreement. Should Licensee,

however, provide Intel with designs, comments or suggestions for the modification,

correction, improvement or enhancement of the BLDK or Intel products which may embody

the BLDK (collectively, “Feedback”), then Licensee grants to Intel a non-exclusive,

irrevocable, worldwide, royalty-free license, including the right to sublicense

Intel licensees and customers, under Licensee’s intellectual property rights in

Neither Intel nor its suppliers make any representation or warranty or condition

of any kind whether express or implied (either in fact or by operation of law) with

respect to the BLDK. Intel and its suppliers expressly disclaim all warranties or

conditions of merchantability or fitness for a particular purpose. Intel and its

suppliers do not warrant that the BLDK is error-free or that operation of the BLDK

will be secure or uninterrupted and hereby disclaim any and all liability on account

thereof. There is also no implied warranty of non-infringement. BLDK is licensed

on an "as is" basis and neither Intel nor its suppliers will provide any support,

assistance, installation, training or other services. Intel and its suppliers may

provide any updates, enhancements or extensions at their sole discretion.

pursuant to this Agreement contain Intel trade secrets. Licensee may not disclose

the terms or existence of this Agreement. Licensee may not disclose any Intel trade

secrets or any other Intel confidential information disclosed or provided under

this Agreement. Additionally, such trade secrets and confidential information may

be subject to the provisions of the applicable nondisclosure agreement(s) between

the parties. Licensee will not make BLDK or Derivative Works available in whole

or in part or in any form, to any person other than Licensee's employees who are

that is not a competitor of Intel. Any attempt to do so will be null and void.




Licensee may terminate this Agreement and the licenses granted in the Agreement

at any time upon Intel’s receipt of written notice.


Intel may terminate this Agreement and any licenses granted in the Agreement at

any time if Licensee fails to cure any material breach of this Agreement within

thirty (30) days after notice of the breach. Such termination will not prejudice

Intel's right to damages or any other remedy available at law or in equity.


Upon termination of the Agreement or any license granted hereunder for any reason

whatsoever, Licensee will completely remove BLDK from all Derived Source Code. In

the event of any termination, Licensee will, at Intel's option, either return to

BLDK and all copies, and any updates provided by Intel, in whole or in part, are

and will remain the property of Intel or its suppliers. Licensee understands and

agree that no license under any Intel patent, copyright (except as expressly described

in Sections 2.1, above), trade secret or other intellectual property right is granted

or conferred upon Licensee in this Agreement or by the providing of the BLDK by

Intel to Licensee hereunder, either expressly, by implication, inducement, estoppel

or otherwise, and that any further license under the intellectual property rights

must be express and in writing.


Title in and to the Derived Source Code will be held by Licensee or Licensee’s suppliers

as appropriate, subject to Intel’s underlying ownership of the BLDK.



Neither party will export, either directly or indirectly, any product, service or

technical data or system incorporating the BLDK without first obtaining any required

license or other approval from the U.S. Department of Commerce or any other agency

or department of the United States Government. In the event any product or software

is exported from the United States or re-exported from a foreign destination by

either party, that party will ensure that the distribution and export/re-export

or import of the product or software is in compliance with all laws, regulations,

orders, or other restrictions of the U.S. Export Administration Regulations and

the appropriate foreign government. Both parties agree that neither it nor any of

its Subsidiaries will export/re-export any software, technical data, process, product,

or service, directly or indirectly, to any country for which the United States government

or any agency thereof or the foreign government from where it is shipping requires

an export license, or other governmental approval, without first obtaining the license

or approval.




Any dispute arising directly under the express terms of this Agreement or the grounds

for termination of any rights granted under this Agreement will be resolved as follows:

First, within forty five (45) days from one party’s written request to the other,

senior executives of both parties will meet to attempt to resolve the dispute. If

the senior executives cannot resolve the dispute, either party may then make a written

demand for formal dispute resolution by tendering to the other party notice of the

dispute and its intent to invoke the terms of this Section 10.1. The parties agree

to meet within ninety (90) days of the demand with an impartial mediator selected

by mutual agreement to participate in a one-day, non-binding mediation. In the event

the parties cannot agree on a mediator, they will each select one nominator, who

will not at that time be employed by either party, and the two nominators will agree

on and appoint the mediator. If the parties have not resolved the dispute or claim

within thirty (30) days after the one-day, non-binding mediation, either party may

begin litigation proceedings.


This is the complete and exclusive Agreement between the parties relating to this

subject matter. No amendment will be effective unless in writing signed by authorized

representatives of both parties.


The terms and conditions stated in the Agreement are declared to be severable. If

any paragraph, provision, or clause in this Agreement will be found or be held to

be invalid or unenforceable in any jurisdiction in which this Agreement is being

performed, the remainder of this Agreement will be valid and enforceable and the

parties will use good faith to negotiate a substitute, valid and enforceable provision

which most nearly effects the parties' intent in entering into this Agreement.


Any claim arising under or relating to this Agreement, will be governed by the laws

of the State of Delaware, excluding its conflicts of laws provisions. The parties

agree that all disputes and litigation regarding the above defined claims will be

subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of the State of Delaware or

of the Federal courts sitting in Delaware.
