145of the Contribution and the Program if, at the time the Contribution is added
146by the Contributor, such addition of the Contribution causes such combination
147to be covered by the Licensed Patents. The patent license shall not apply to
148any other combinations which include the Contribution. No hardware per se is
149licensed hereunder. </span></p>

152Recipient understands that although each Contributor grants the licenses to its
153Contributions set forth herein, no assurances are provided by any Contributor
154that the Program does not infringe the patent or other intellectual property
155rights of any other entity. Each Contributor disclaims any liability to Recipient
156for claims brought by any other entity based on infringement of intellectual
157property rights or otherwise. As a condition to exercising the rights and
158licenses granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility
159to secure any other intellectual property rights needed, if any. For example,
160if a third party patent license is required to allow Recipient to distribute
161the Program, it is Recipient's responsibility to acquire that license before

217<p><b><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>4. COMMERCIAL DISTRIBUTION</span></b> </p>
218
219<p><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>Commercial distributors of software may
220accept certain responsibilities with respect to end users, business partners
221and the like. While this license is intended to facilitate the commercial use
222of the Program, the Contributor who includes the Program in a commercial
223product offering should do so in a manner which does not create potential
224liability for other Contributors. Therefore, if a Contributor includes the
225Program in a commercial product offering, such Contributor (&quot;Commercial
226Contributor&quot;) hereby agrees to defend and indemnify every other
227Contributor (&quot;Indemnified Contributor&quot;) against any losses, damages and
228costs (collectively &quot;Losses&quot;) arising from claims, lawsuits and other
229legal actions brought by a third party against the Indemnified Contributor to
230the extent caused by the acts or omissions of such Commercial Contributor in
231connection with its distribution of the Program in a commercial product
232offering. The obligations in this section do not apply to any claims or Losses
233relating to any actual or alleged intellectual property infringement. In order
234to qualify, an Indemnified Contributor must: a) promptly notify the Commercial
235Contributor in writing of such claim, and b) allow the Commercial Contributor
236to control, and cooperate with the Commercial Contributor in, the defense and
237any related settlement negotiations. The Indemnified Contributor may participate
238in any such claim at its own expense.</span> </p>
239
240<p><span style='font-size:10.0pt'>For example, a Contributor might include the
241Program in a commercial product offering, Product X. That Contributor is then a
242Commercial Contributor. If that Commercial Contributor then makes performance
243claims, or offers warranties related to Product X, those performance claims and
244warranties are such Commercial Contributor's responsibility alone. Under this
245section, the Commercial Contributor would have to defend claims against the
246other Contributors related to those performance claims and warranties, and if a
247court requires any other Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the
248Commercial Contributor must pay those damages.</span> </p>
