services to You in connection with Your rights granted in
this License. All such Licensees must execute appropriate
documents with respect to such work consistent with the
terms of this License, and acknowledging their
work-made-for-hire status or assigning exclusive right to
the work product and associated Intellectual Property Rights
to You.
3.Requirements and Responsibilities.
3.1 Research Use License. As a condition of exercising the rights
granted under Section 2.1 a) above, You agree to comply with the following:
a) Your Contribution to the Community. All Error
Corrections and Shared Modifications which You create or
contribute to are automatically subject to the licenses
granted under Section 2.2 above. You are encouraged to
license all of Your other Modifications under Section 2.2 as
Shared Modifications, but are not required to do so. You
agree to notify Original Contributor of any errors in the
Specification.
b) Source Code Availability. You agree to provide all Your
Error Corrections to Original Contributor as soon as
reasonably practicable and, in any event, prior to Internal
Deployment Use or Commercial Use, if applicable. Original
Contributor may, at its discretion, post Source Code for
Your Error Corrections and Shared Modifications on the
Community Webserver. You may also post Error Corrections
and Shared Modifications on a web-server of Your choice;
provided, that You must take reasonable precautions to
ensure that only Licensees have access to such Error
Corrections and Shared Modifications. Such precautions
shall include, without limitation, a password protection
scheme limited to Licensees and a click-on, download
certification of Licensee status required of those
attempting to download from the server. An example of an
acceptable certification is attached as Attachment A-2.
c) Notices. All Error Corrections and Shared Modifications
You create or contribute to must include a file documenting
the additions and changes You made and the date of such
additions and changes. You must also include the notice set
forth in Attachment A-1 in the file header. If it is not
possible to put the notice in a particular Source Code file
due to its structure, then You must include the notice in a
location (such as a relevant directory file), where a
recipient would be most likely to look for such a notice.
d) Redistribution.
(i) Source. Covered Code may be distributed in Source Code
form only to another Licensee (except for students as
provided below). You may not offer or impose any terms on
any Covered Code that alter the rights, requirements, or
responsibilities of such Licensee. You may distribute
Covered Code to students for use in connection with their
course work and research projects undertaken at accredited
educational institutions. Such students need not be
Licensees, but must be given a copy of the notice set forth
in Attachment A-3 and such notice must also be included in a
file header or prominent location in the Source Code made
available to such students.
(ii) Executable. You may distribute Executable version(s)
of Covered Code to Licensees and other third parties only
for the purpose of evaluation and comment in connection with
Research Use by You and under a license of Your choice, but
which limits use of such Executable version(s) of Covered
Code only to that purpose.
(iii) Modified Class,Interface and Package Naming. In
connection with Research Use by You only, You may use
Original Contributor's class, interface and package names
only to accurately reference or invoke the Source Code files
You modify. Original Contributor grants to You a limited
license to the extent necessary for such purposes.
(iv) You expressly agree that any distribution, in whole or
in part, of Modifications developed by You shall only be
done pursuant to the term and conditions of this License.
e) Extensions.
(i) Covered Code. You may not include any Source Code of
Community Code in any Extensions;
(ii) Publication. No later than the date on which You first
distribute such Extension for Commercial Use, You must
publish to the industry, on a non-confidential basis and
free of all copyright restrictions with respect to
reproduction and use, an accurate and current specification
for any Extension. In addition, You must make available an
appropriate test suite, pursuant to the same rights as the
specification, sufficiently detailed to allow any third
party reasonably skilled in the technology to produce
implementations of the Extension compatible with the
specification. Such test suites must be made available as
soon as reasonably practicable but, in no event, later than
ninety (90) days after Your first Commercial Use of the
Extension. You must use reasonable efforts to promptly
clarify and correct the specification and the test suite
upon written request by Original Contributor.
(iii) Open. You agree to refrain from enforcing any
Intellectual Property Rights You may have covering any
interface(s) of Your Extension, which would prevent the
implementation of such interface(s) by Original Contributor
or any Licensee. This obligation does not prevent You from
enforcing any Intellectual Property Right You have that
would otherwise be infringed by an implementation of Your
Extension.
(iv) Class, Interface and Package Naming. You may not add
any packages, or any public or protected classes or
interfaces with names that originate or might appear to
originate from Original Contributor including, without
limitation, package or class names which begin with "sun",
"java", "javax", "jini", "net.jini", "com.sun" or their
equivalents in any subsequent class, interface and/ or
package naming convention adopted by Original Contributor.
It is specifically suggested that You name any new packages
using the "Unique Package Naming Convention" as described in
"The Java Language Specification" by James Gosling, Bill
Joy, and Guy Steele, ISBN 0-201-63451-1, August 1996.
Section 7.7 "Unique Package Names", on page 125 of this
specification which states, in part:
"You form a unique package name by first having (or
belonging to an organization that has) an Internet domain
name, such as "sun.com". You then reverse the name,
component by component, to obtain, in this example,
"Com.sun", and use this as a prefix for Your package names,
using a convention developed within Your organization to
further administer package names."
3.2 Additional Requirements and Responsibilities. Any
additional requirements and responsibilities relating to the
Technology are listed in Attachment F (Additional
Requirements and Responsibilities), if applicable, and are
hereby incorporated into this Section 3.
4. Versions of the License.
4.1 License Versions. Original Contributor may publish
revised versions of the License from time to time. Each
version will be given a distinguishing version number.
4.2 Effect. Once a particular version of Covered Code has
been provided under a version of the License, You may always
continue to use such Covered Code under the terms of that
version of the License. You may also choose to use such
Covered Code under the terms of any subsequent version of
the License. No one other than Original Contributor has the
right to promulgate License versions.

intellectual property protection and enforcement in certain
countries, You agree not to redistribute the Original Code,
Upgraded Code, TCK and Specifications to any country other
than the list of restricted countries on the SCSL Webpage.

b) Distribution of Executable Code. You may distribute the
Executable version(s) of Compliant Covered Code under a
license of Your choice, which may contain terms different
from this License, provided (i) that You are in compliance
with the terms of this License, and (ii) You must make it
absolutely clear that any terms which differ from this
License are offered by You alone, not by Original
Contributor or any other Contributor.
c) Branding. Products integrating Compliant Covered Code
used for Commercial Use must be branded with the Technology
compliance logo under a separate trademark license required
to be executed by You and Original Contributor concurrent
with execution of this Attachment D.
5. Indemnity/Limitation of Liability. The provisions of
Section 7.1 of the Research Use license are superseded by
the following:
a) Your Indemnity Obligation. You hereby agree to defend,
at Your expense, any legal proceeding brought against
Original Contributor or any Licensee to the extent it is
based on a claim: (i) that the use, reproduction or
distribution of any of Your Error Corrections or Shared
Modifications is an infringement of a third party trade
secret or a copyright in a country that is a signatory to
the Berne Convention; (ii) arising in connection with any
representation, warranty, support, indemnity, liability or
other license terms You may offer in connection with any
Covered Code; or (iii) arising from Your Commercial Use of
Covered Code, other than a claim covered by Section 5.b)
below, or a patent claim based solely on Covered Code not
provided by You. You will pay all damages costs and fees
awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction, or such
settlement amount negotiated by You, attributable to such
claim.
b) Original Contributor's Indemnity Obligation. Original
Contributor will defend, at its expense, any legal
proceeding brought against You, to the extent it is based on
a claim that Your authorized Commercial Use of Original Code
and Upgraded Code is an infringement of a third party trade
secret or a copyright in a country that is a signatory to
the Berne Convention, and will pay all damages costs and
fees awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction, or such
settlement amount negotiated by Original Contributor,
attributable to such claim. The foregoing shall not apply
to any claims of intellectual property infringement based
upon the combination of code or documentation supplied by
Original Contributor with code, technology or documentation
from other sources.
c) Right of Intervention. Original Contributor will have
the right, but not the obligation, to defend You, at
Original Contributor's expense, in connection with a claim
that Your Commercial Use of Original Code and Upgraded Code
is an infringement of a third party patent and will, if
Original Contributor chooses to defend You, pay all damages
costs and fees awarded by a court of competent jurisdiction,
or such settlement amount negotiated by Original
Contributor, attributable to such claim.
d) Prerequisites. Under Sections 5.b) and c) above, You
must, and under Section 5.a) above, Original Contributor or
any Licensee must: (i) provide notice of the claim promptly
to the party providing an indemnity; (ii) give the
indemnifying party sole control of the defense and
settlement of the claim; (iii) provide the indemnifying
party, at indemnifying party's expense, all available
information, assistance and authority to defend; and (iv)
not have compromised or settled such claim or proceeding
without the indemnifying party's prior written consent.
e) Additional Remedies. Should any Original Code, Upgraded
Code, TCK, Specifications, or Modifications become, or in
the indemnifying party's opinion be likely to become, the
subject of a claim of infringement for which indemnity is
provided above, the indemnifying party may, at its sole
option, attempt to procure on reasonable terms the rights
necessary for the indemnified party to exercise its license
rights under this License with respect to the infringing
items, or to modify the infringing items so that they are no
longer infringing without substantially impairing their
function or performance. If the indemnifying party is
unable to do the foregoing after reasonable efforts, then
the indemnifying party may send a notice of such inability
to the indemnified party together with a refund of any
license fees received by the indemnifying party from the
indemnified party for the infringing items applicable to the
indemnified party's future use or distribution of such
infringing items, in which case the indemnifying party will
not be liable for any damages resulting from infringing
activity with respect to the infringing items occurring
after such notice and refund.
6. Support Programs.
Support to You. Technical support is not provided to You by
Original Contributor under this License. You may contract
for one or more support programs from Original Contributor
relating to the Technology which are described on the SCSL
Webpage.

Field of Use:____________________
Royalty per Unit $_____________
b) Royalty Payments. Payment of royalties shall be made
quarterly, shall be due thirty (30) days following the end
of the calendar quarter to which they relate and shall be
submitted with a written statement documenting the basis for
the royalty calculation.
c) Taxes. All payments required by this License shall be
made in United States dollars, are exclusive of taxes, and
Licensee agrees to bear and be responsible for the payment
of all such taxes, including, but not limited to, all sales,
use, rental receipt, personal property or other taxes and
their equivalents which may be levied or assessed in
connection with this License (excluding only taxes based on
Original Contributor's net income). To the extent Licensee
is required to withhold taxes based upon Original
Contributor's income in any country, You agree to provide
Original Contributor with written evidence of such
withholding, suitable for Original Contributor to obtain a
tax credit in the United States.
d) Records. You agree to maintain account books and records
consistent with Generally Accepted Accounting Principles
appropriate to Your domicile, as may be in effect from time
to time, sufficient to allow the correctness of the
royalties required to be paid pursuant to this License to be
determined.
e) Audit Rights. Original Contributor shall have the right
to audit such accounts upon reasonable prior notice using an
independent auditor of Original Contributor's choice (the
"Auditor"). The Auditor shall be bound to keep confidential
the details of Your business affairs and to limit disclosure
of the results of any audit to the sufficiency of the
accounts and the amount, if any, of a payment adjustment
that should be made. Such audits shall not occur more than
once each year (unless discrepancies are discovered in
excess of the five percent (5%) threshold set forth in
Section 7.f) below, in which case two consecutive quarters
per year may be audited). Except as set forth in Section
7.f) below, Original Contributor shall bear all costs and
expenses associated with the exercise of its rights to
audit.
f) Payment Errors. In the event that any errors in payments
shall be determined, such errors shall be corrected by
appropriate adjustment in payment for the quarterly period
during which the error is discovered. In the event of an
underpayment of more than five percent (5%) of the proper
amount owed, upon such underpayment being properly
determined by the Auditor, You agree to reimburse Original
Contributor the amount of the underpayment and all
reasonable costs and expenses associated with the exercise
of its rights to audit, and interest on the overdue amount
at the maximum allowable interest rate from the date of
accrual of such obligation.
8. Notice of Breach or Infringement. Each party shall
notify the other immediately in writing when it becomes
aware of any breach or violation of the terms of this
License, or when You become aware of any potential or actual
infringement by a third party of the Technology or Sun's
Intellectual Property Rights therein.
9. Proprietary Rights Notices. You may not remove any
copyright notices, trademark notices or other proprietary
legends of Original Contributor or its suppliers contained
