2. LICENSE GRANT

(a) Subject to this Agreement and in consideration of Your compliance with the Certification Tests and the Certification Policy, the Open Mobile Alliance grants to You for the Term and in the Territory:
(i) a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use only the [email protected] Certified Logo in connection with the Certified Product, provided the [email protected] Certified Logo is used by You specifically as set forth under this Agreement; and
(ii) a royalty-free, non-exclusive, non-transferable license to use the [email protected] Certified Logo in advertising, promotional material or other literature to indicate the Certified Product meets the Certification Tests, provided the [email protected] Certified Logo is used by You specifically as set forth under this Agreement and the Trademark Usage Requirements.
You are specifically granted the right to sublicense the [email protected] Certified Logo solely for the purpose of contracting for the manufacture of Certified Product to Your specifications. You are granted no other right, title, license to or interest in the [email protected] Certified Logo, or any of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks, for any purpose. No right to create modifications or derivatives of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks is granted pursuant to this license.

(b) You acknowledge that the Open Mobile Alliance makes no representations regarding the Open Mobile Alliance's ability to register the Open Mobile Alliance Marks, or the availability for use in any country of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks.

(c) The Open Mobile Alliance may eliminate any jurisdiction from the Territory if it determines that use or continued use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks in such jurisdiction may subject the Open Mobile Alliance or any third party to legal liability, or may jeopardize the Open Mobile Alliance's rights in the Open Mobile Alliance Marks. In such event, as quickly as possible but in no event later than ninety (90) calendar days of receipt of notice from the Open Mobile Alliance, or such earlier date as required by court or judicial order, You shall cease all use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks in such jurisdiction.

(d) Subject only to the rights specifically granted to You hereunder, nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed to limit or restrict, in any way or manner, any right of the Open Mobile Alliance to encumber, transfer, license, access, reference, use, or practice the Open Mobile Alliance Marks in any way for any purpose or use, including, without limitation, the Open Mobile Alliance's use, licensing, and/or registration of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks anywhere in the world for any purpose.

(e) The Open Mobile Alliance reserves the right to alter the [email protected] Certified Logo or to replace it with a different logo ("New Logo"). In such event, upon notice from the Open Mobile Alliance, You shall cease all use of the [email protected] Certified Logo as quickly as reasonably possible on any Certified Product. You agree to use the New Logo supplied by the Open Mobile Alliance for any Certified Product developed subsequent to receipt of notice from the Open Mobile Alliance, provided such New Logo is not confusingly similar with any of Your existing trademarks.

3. USE OF THE OPEN MOBILE ALLIANCE TRADEMARKS

(a) You agree to comply with the Trademark Usage Requirements as defined at the time of first commercial release of Your Certified Product.

(b) You agree that any representations regarding the Certified Product and compliance with any Open Mobile Alliance specifications or Certification Tests must clearly indicate that the representations are made by You, and not by the Open Mobile Alliance.

You agree to display the [email protected] Certified Logo in a size and style less prominent than, and separately from Your or other names, marks or logos, and in such a manner that it is clear that the [email protected] Certified Logo refers only to the specific Certified Product which has passed the Certification Tests and not any other product of Yours or any third party. For example, if the Certified Product which displays the [email protected] Certified Logo is used with any other product that has not passed the Certification Tests, You agree to display the [email protected] Certified Logo in such a manner that it is clear that the [email protected] Certified Logo refers only to the Certified Product (that has passed the Certification Tests) and not to any other product which has not passed the Certification Tests.

(d) You shall legibly display the following trademark legend or the equivalent for countries where the use of TM is inappropriate, provided You have first notified the Open Mobile Alliance in writing of such equivalent legend and the countries where this will be used, on all materials in or on which the Open Mobile Alliance Marks appear:

"TM: The [email protected] Certified, [email protected] and Open Mobile Alliance marks are worldwide trademarks or registered trademarks of Open Mobile Alliance Ltd."

(e) You agree not to use the Open Mobile Alliance Marks in any manner which, in the Open Mobile Alliance's sole discretion, may diminish or otherwise damage the Open Mobile Alliance's reputation or its goodwill in the Open Mobile Alliance Marks, including, but not limited to, uses which would be deemed to be obscene, pornographic, excessively violent or otherwise in poor taste or unlawful, or which are designed to encourage unlawful activities.

(f) You agree that your use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks will not be misleading or likely to cause confusion as to whether your Certified Product is sponsored by, endorsed by or affiliated with the Open Mobile Alliance.

(g) Without prejudice to the provisions of section 3(c), the [email protected] Certified Logo must appear by itself; it may not be combined with any other graphic or textual elements and may not be used as a design element or part of any other logo or trademark.

(h) You may not use the [email protected] Certified Logo on any Certified Product that is in violation of any applicable laws or governmental regulations. You may not use the Open Mobile Alliance Marks in connection with any disparaging statements about the Open Mobile Alliance or statements that otherwise reflect poorly on the Open Mobile Alliance.

(i) You may never use the [email protected] Logo on any Certified Product. Only the [email protected] Certified Logo may be used on Certified Product pursuant to the terms of this Agreement. The [email protected] Logo may be used as set forth in the Trademark Usage Requirements.

4. PROTECTION OF THE OPEN MOBILE ALLIANCE TRADEMARKS

(a) You understand and agree that the Open Mobile Alliance is the sole owner of all right, title, and interest in and to the Open Mobile Alliance Marks, and all goodwill associated with the Open Mobile Alliance Marks and that all use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks inures to the benefit of the Open Mobile Alliance.

(b) You agree not to challenge the Open Mobile Alliance's ownership or use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks; not to attempt to register any Open Mobile Alliance Marks, or any mark or logo substantially similar thereto; not to remove, alter, or add to the Open Mobile Alliance Marks; and not to incorporate the [email protected] Certified Logo or any of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks into Your trademarks, service marks, company names, domain names, or any other similar designations. Any goodwill arising from Your use of the Open Mobile Alliance Marks is solely for the Open Mobile Alliance's benefit and is owned by the Open Mobile Alliance.

(c) If, at any time, You acquire any rights in, or trademark registrations or applications for, the Open Mobile Alliance Marks by operation of law or otherwise, You will immediately upon request from the Open Mobile Alliance and at no expense to the Open Mobile Alliance assign such rights, registrations or applications to the Open Mobile Alliance, along with any and all associated goodwill.

(d) Without prejudice to any rights and remedies otherwise available to the Open Mobile Alliance, You acknowledge and agree that damages would not be an adequate remedy in the event of an unauthorized use, reproduction or display of the [email protected] Certified Logo or Open Mobile Alliance Marks, and, therefore, that the Open Mobile Alliance shall be entitled to relief by way of immediate injunctive or other equitable relief to restrain any such use, reproduction, distribution or disclosure, threatened or actual.
