Additional Grant of Patent Rights
"Software means the Shimmer-android software distributed by Facebook, Inc.
“Software” means the Shimmer-android software distributed by Facebook, Inc.
Facebook, Inc. ("Facebook") hereby grants to each recipient of the Software
("you") a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, irrevocable
(subject to the termination provision below) license under any Necessary Claims,
to make, have made, use, sell, offer to sell, import, and otherwise transfer the
Software. For avoidance of doubt, no license is granted under Facebook’s rights
in any patent claims that are infringed by (i) modifications to the Software
made by you or any third party or (ii) the Software in combination with any
software or other technology.
Facebook hereby grants you a perpetual, worldwide, royalty-free, non-exclusive, irrevocable (subject to the termination
provision below) license under any rights in any patent claims owned by Facebook, to make, have made, use, sell, offer
to sell, import, and otherwise transfer the Software. For avoidance of doubt, no license is granted under Facebook’s
rights in any patent claims that are infringed by (i) modifications to the Software made by you or a third party, or
(ii) the Software in combination with any software or other technology provided by you or a third party.
The license granted hereunder will terminate, automatically and without notice, for anyone that makes any claim
(including by filing any lawsuit, assertion or other action) alleging (a) direct, indirect, or contributory infringement
or inducement to infringe any patent: (i) by Facebook or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, whether or not such
claim is related to the Software, (ii) by any party if such claim arises in whole or in part from any software, product
or service of Facebook or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, whether or not such claim is related to the Software,
or (iii) by any party relating to the Software; or (b) that any right in any patent claim of Facebook is invalid or
unenforceable.
The license granted hereunder will terminate, automatically and without notice,
if you (or any of your subsidiaries, corporate affiliates or agents) initiate
directly or indirectly, or take a direct financial interest in, any Patent
Assertion: (i) against Facebook or any of its subsidiaries or corporate
affiliates, (ii) against any party if such Patent Assertion arises in whole or
in part from any software, technology, product or service of Facebook or any of
its subsidiaries or corporate affiliates, or (iii) against any party relating to
the Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Facebook or any of its
subsidiaries or corporate affiliates files a lawsuit alleging patent
infringement against you in the first instance, and you respond by filing a
patent infringement counterclaim in that lawsuit against that party that is
unrelated to the Software, the license granted hereunder will not terminate
under section (i) of this paragraph due to such counterclaim.
A "Necessary Claim" is a claim of a patent owned by Facebook that is necessarily
infringed by the Software standing alone.
A "Patent Assertion" is any lawsuit or other action alleging direct, indirect,
or contributory infringement or inducement to infringe any patent, including a
cross-claim or counterclaim.
