7.2 WPD shall consult with MBI in the event that WPD determines that any additional patent applications (“Additional Patents”) for the Sublicensed Subject Matter in the Sublicensed Territory should be filed. Should MBI and WPD agree that an Additional Patent covering an invention in the Sublicensed Territory shall be filed, then MBI, at all times subject to the terms of the applicable MD Anderson License Agreements, will prepare and file appropriate patent applications covering the invention so identified. In such instance, WPD shall be responsible for all costs of searching, preparing, filing, prosecuting and maintaining the Additional Patents in the Sublicensed Territories. For purposes of clarity only, (i) WPD shall not be responsible for any part of the Annual Maintenance Fee, as that term may be defined in any applicable MD Anderson License Agreement, or any other maintenance fees for the Sublicensed Patent Rights except for maintenance fees for any Additional Patents, and (ii) WPD shall not be responsible for any other costs specified under Article VI of any of the MD Anderson License Agreement unless such costs are specifically assigned to WPD under the terms of this Agreement.
7.3 MBI shall own any and all rights, titles, and interests, including all intellectual property rights, in any and all variations, modifications, improvements, or enhancements of or relating to the Sublicensed Subject Matter (whether patentable or not) (collectively “Improvements”) whether conceived, developed, created or reduced to practice by MBI or WPD (regardless of whether WPD-Incorporated IP is utilized) during the term of this Agreement. As between WPD and MBI, WPD shall own all rights and title and interests including all intellectual property rights in all intellectual property or other subject matter developed or acquired independent of the Sublicensed Subject Matter and owned by WPD or licensed from third parties by WPD (“WPD Intellectual Property”). MBI acknowledges that in the course of developing the Sublicensed Product, WPD may incorporate in the Sublicensed Product certain WPD Intellectual Property that is developed and owned by WPD prior to the Effective Date (“WPD-Incorporated IP”).
a. MBI hereby grants WPD an exclusive license under the Improvements to research, develop, manufacture, have manufactured, use, import, offer to sell and sell Sublicensed Products in the Sublicensed Territory.
b. WPD hereby grants MBI an exclusive license under WPD-Incorporated IP to research, develop, manufacture, have manufactured, use, import, offer to sell and sell Licensed Products in any territory outside of the Sublicensed Territories. WPD hereby grants MBI a non-exclusive license under the WPD-Incorporated IP to research develop, manufacture, have manufactured, use, import, offer to sell Licensed Products in the Sublicensed Territories upon expiration or earlier termination of this Agreement.



7.4 To the extent that MBI and not UTMDACC or any other third party, has control over the preparation, filing prosecution and maintenance of a patent application or patent:
a. MBI shall keep WPD reasonably informed of the status of any patent application or patent directed to the Sublicensed Patent Rights in the Sublicensed Territories, and will provide WPD with a copy of any patent applications included within the Sublicensed Patent Rights in the Sublicensed Territories, as well as copies of any material documents received or filed during the prosecution of Additional Patents in the Sublicensed Territories included within the Sublicensed Patent Rights;
b. MBI shall not knowingly abandon any such patent application or patent included within the Additional Patents without reasonable advanced notice to WPD; If WPD is not in default on any of its obligations under this Agreement, MBI shall consider in good faith any requests made by WPD to continue prosecution, but the final decision to continue or abandon shall be in MBI’s sole discretion. The parties agree that they share a common legal interest to get valid enforceable patents and that each party will maintain as privileged all information received pursuant to this section 7.4. In addition such information shall be considered to fall within the definition of “Confidential Information” as set forth in Article XIII.
ARTICLE VIII.
INFRINGEMENT BY THIRD PARTIES
1.Subject to any limitations as may be set forth in the MD Anderson License Agreements and Dermin License Agreements WPD, at its expense, shall have the first right to (but shall not be obligated to) enforce any patent included within the Sublicensed Patent Rights against infringement by third parties in the Sublicensed Territories. After reimbursement of reasonable legal costs and expenses related to such recovery incurred by WPD, WPD agrees to pay MBI (a) the applicable royalty detailed in Section 6.1 and 6.2 above for any monetary recovery that is for sales of Sublicensed Product lost due to the infringement, and fifty percent (50%) of related punitive damages received by WPD or its affiliates; or (b) fifty percent (50%) of reasonable royalties awarded and received by WPD or its affiliates, and fifty percent (50%) of related punitive damages received by WPD or its affiliates in any monetary recovery in which the award is for reasonable royalties.  
8.2 If either WPD or MBI becomes aware of any infringement or potential infringement of the Sublicensed Patent Rights, each shall promptly notify the other of such in writing. If WPD does not file suit against a potential infringer or take alternative action reasonably acceptable to MBI to end such infringement or potential infringement, within three (3) months of knowledge thereof, then, provided that such infringement is still on going, MBI may, at its sole discretion, enforce any patent licensed hereunder on behalf of itself and WPD,



with MBI retaining all recoveries from such enforcement. In addition, in resolution of such infringement, MBI may grant non-exclusive license rights to the alleged infringer notwithstanding WPD’s exclusive license rights granted herein.
8.3 In any suit or dispute involving an infringer, the Parties agree to cooperate fully with each other. Each Party shall cooperate with the other including provision of documents and witnesses in the conduct of litigation against any third party infringement, whether they have commenced it or not. At the request and expense of the Party bringing suit, the other Party will permit access during regular business hours, to all relevant personnel, records, papers, information, samples, specimens and the like in its possession.
ARTICLE IX.
PATENT MARKINGS
1.WPD agrees that all packaging containing individual Sublicensed Products, documentation therefor, and, when possible, actual Sublicensed Products sold by WPD will be permanently and legibly marked with the number of any applicable patents licensed hereunder in accordance with each country’s patent laws to the extent such marking is necessary or required to fully preserve Sublicensed Patent Rights in such country.

For any assignment to be effective the assignee must assume in writing (a copy of which writing will be provided to the other Party) all of the assigning Party's interests, rights, duties, liabilities and obligations under the Agreement and agree to comply with all terms and conditions of the Agreement as if the assignee were the original party to the Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, WPD may not assign this Agreement without the approval of MBI if such assignment would require the approval of MD Anderson or the payment to MD Anderson of any consideration.

ARTICLE XV.
TERM AND TERMINATION
1.The term of this Agreement will commence on the Effective Date and remain in full force and effect until the expiration of the last patent within the Sublicensed Patents, unless earlier termination by either (i) termination of all of the MD Anderson License Agreements, or (ii) pursuant to the terms of this Agreement (“Term”).



2.Subject to any rights herein which survive termination, this Agreement will earlier terminate in its entirety:
a. Automatically, if WPD becomes bankrupt or insolvent and/or if the business of WPD shall be placed in the hands of a receiver or trustee, whether by voluntary act of WPD or otherwise; or
b. Upon thirty (30) calendar days written notice from MBI, if WPD materially breaches or defaults on the payment or report obligations of Article VI, or use of name obligations of Article XI, or any obligation set forth in Article IV, unless before the end of such thirty (30) calendar day notice period, WPD has cured the material default or breach to MBI’s reasonable satisfaction, and so notifies MBI, stating the manner of the cure; or
c. Upon ninety (90) calendar days written notice from MBI if WPD materially breaches or defaults on any other obligation under this Agreement, unless, before the end of such ninety (90) calendar day period, WPD has cured the material default or breach to MBI’s reasonable satisfaction, and so notifies MBI, stating the manner of the cure; or
d. At any time by mutual written agreement between WPD and MBI upon one hundred eighty (180) calendar days written notice to all Parties and subject to any terms herein which survive termination; or
e. Immediately, upon written notice from MBI, if WPD brings any action before any court, agency or tribunal seeking to invalidate or otherwise challenge the enforceability of MBI’s, UTMDACC’s or the Board's ownership of any patent included in the Sublicensed Patent Rights. Any dispute regarding the validity, enforceability or ownership of any patent included in the Patent Rights shall be litigated in the courts located in Houston, Texas, and WPD agrees not to challenge personal jurisdiction in that forum. To the extent that WPD unsuccessfully challenges the validity or enforceability of any patent included in the Patent Rights, WPD agrees to reimburse MBI, UTMDACC and Board for all costs and fees (including attorney's fees) paid by MBI, UTMDACC and Board in defending against such challenge. WPD understands and agrees that, in the event WPD successfully challenges the validity or enforceability of any patent included in the Patent Rights, all payments or other consideration made or otherwise provided by WPD to MBI, UTMDACC or the Board prior to a final, non-appealable adjudication of invalidity and/or unenforceability shall be non-refundable.
f. Notwithstanding any terms to the contrary, if WPD has defaulted or been late on its payment obligations pursuant to this Agreement for a period of five (5)



calendar days after notice from MBI of such default or failure to pay on any two (2) occasions in a twelve (12)-month period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, WPD may avoid termination under this Section, if WPD pays all past due amounts and a default waiver fee of $50,000.00 within thirty (30) calendar days following the receipt of written notice from MBI identifying the second payment default in the twelve (12) month period. WPD may avoid termination as provided in the foregoing sentence (by payment of all past due amounts and default waiver fee) a maximum of three (3) times during the Term of this Agreement. For purposes of clarification, a separate default waiver fee of $50,000.00 shall be due each time WPD seeks to avoid termination under this provision. It is understood that time is of the essence with respect to the default waiver fees, and these fees are not subject to the thirty (30) day cure period specified in Section 15.2(b); or
3.Early Termination or Amendment Rights. MBI shall have the right, in its sole discretion, to terminate this Agreement in whole, or to materially amend the Agreement by removing a portion of the Sublicensed Subject Matter related to a Buyback Event (defined below), at any time in connection with the completion of any Buyback Event by paying to WPD the Buyback Consideration (defined below), provided however that MBI’s right to terminate this Agreement shall only be exercised if the Buyback Consideration payable to WPD is reasonably expected to exceed the Minimum Buyback Consideration (defined below).

5.This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, all of which together shall constitute a single agreement.
6.This Agreement will be governed by, construed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of Texas. Any dispute between the Parties regarding or related to this Agreement shall be litigated in the courts located in Houston, Texas, and WPD agrees not to challenge personal jurisdiction in that forum.
7.If any provision of this Agreement or application thereof to anyone is adjudicated to be invalid or unenforceable, such invalidity or unenforceability shall not affect any provision or application of this Agreement which can be given effect without the invalid or unenforceable provision or application, and shall not invalidate or render unenforceable such provision or application. Further, the judicial or other competent authority making such determination shall have the power to limit, construe or reduce the duration, scope, activity and/or area of such provision, and/or delete specific words or phrases as necessary to render, such provision enforceable.



8.The headings used in this Agreement have been inserted for convenience of reference only and do not define or limit the provisions hereof. The Exhibits (if any) to this Agreement are incorporated herein by reference and will be deemed a part of this Agreement. Unless otherwise expressly provided herein or the context of this Agreement otherwise requires, (a) words of any gender include each other gender, (b) words such as “herein”, “hereof”, and “hereunder” refer to this Agreement as a whole and not merely to the particular provision in which such words appear, (c) words using the singular will include the plural, and vice versa, (d) the words “include,” “includes” and “including” will be deemed to be followed by the phrase “but not limited to”, “without limitation”, “inter alia” or words of similar import, (e) the word “or” will be deemed to include the word “and” (e.g., “and/or”) and (f) references to “ARTICLE,” “Section,” “subsection”, “clause” or other subdivision, or to a Schedule or Exhibit, without reference to a document are to the specified provision, Schedule or Exhibit of this Agreement. This Agreement will be construed as if it were drafted jointly by the Parties and shall not be strictly construed against either Party.
9.Except for the payment of any amount due hereunder (other than any amount disputed in good faith), neither Party shall be liable to the other for any failure or delay in the fulfillment of its obligations under this Agreement, when any such failure or delay is caused by fire, flood, earthquakes, locusts, explosions, sabotage, terrorism, lack of adequate raw materials (caused by matters beyond the reasonable control of the performing Party), civil commotions, riots, invasions, wars, peril of the sea, acts, restraints, requisitions, regulations, or directions of government authorities (caused by matters beyond the reasonable control of the performing Party), acts of God, or any similar cause beyond the reasonable control of the performing Party (each, a “Force Majeure Event”). In the event that either Party is prevented from discharging its obligations under this Agreement on account of a Force Majeure Event, the performing Party will notify the other Party forthwith, and will nevertheless make every endeavor, in the utmost good faith, to discharge its obligations, even if in a partial or compromised manner. For clarity, a Force Majeure Event shall not excuse a Party from its obligation to pay any money due hereunder.
IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Parties hereto have executed this Agreement by their duly authorized representatives with full right, power and authority to enter into and perform under this Agreement.
