2.3 License Limitations. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to confer any rights upon LICENSEE by implication, estoppel, or otherwise to any computer software, trademark, intellectual property, or patent rights of MIT, or of any other entity, except as expressly granted herein. LICENSEE agrees that the PROGRAM shall not be used as the basis of a commercial software or hardware product and that the same shall not be rewritten in another computer language or otherwise adapted to circumvent the need for obtaining a license for use of the PROGRAM other than as specified by this Agreement.
3. CONSIDERATION
In consideration of the RIGHTS GRANTED herein, LICENSEE agrees to provide a written evaluation of the PROGRAM including a description of its functionality or problems, areas for further improvement in the PROGRAM, accurate registration information prior to using the SERVER SOFTWARE and accurate registration information for each user of the CLIENT SOFTWARE. LICENSEE hereby automatically grants to MIT a non-exclusive, royalty-free, irrevocable worldwide license to any LICENSEE BUG FIXES or modifications to the PROGRAM with unlimited rights to sublicense and/or distribute. Such modifications and BUG FIXES shall be provided to MIT promptly upon their creation.
4. OWNERSHIP OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND GRANT BACK
LICENSEE acknowledges that title to the PROGRAM shall remain with MIT. To the extent the PROGRAM is marked with a MIT copyright notice, LICENSEE shall retain such notice on all copies, and on modifications and BUG FIXES where applicable. LICENSEE shall be entitled to establish all proprietary rights for itself in the modifications or BUG FIXES created pursuant to Section 2.1, whether in the nature of trade secrets or copyrights, provided that all such rights are subject to MIT’s copyright and that any copyright registration by LICENSEE gives full attribution to MIT’s copyright.
5. INDEMNIFICATION
LICENSEE shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless MIT, and their respective trustees, officers, faculty, students, employees, and agents, and their respective successors, heirs and assigns, (“Indemnitees”), against any liability, damage, loss, or expense (including reasonable attorneys fees and expenses) incurred by or imposed upon any of the Indemnitees in connection with any claims, suits, actions, demands or judgments arising out of any theory of liability (including, without limitation, actions in the form of tort, warranty, or strict liability and regardless of whether such action has any factual basis) pursuant to any right or license granted under this Agreement.
6. NO REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES
THE PROGRAM IS DELIVERED “AS IS.” NEITHER MIT MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND CONCERNING THE PROGRAM OR THE COPYRIGHT, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, NONINFRINGEMENT, OR THE ABSENCE OF LATENT OR OTHER DEFECTS, WHETHER OR NOT DISCOVERABLE. NEITHER MIT EXTENDS ANY WARRANTIES OF ANY KIND AS TO PROGRAM CONFORMITY WITH WHATEVER USER MANUALS OR OTHER LITERATURE MAY BE ISSUED FROM TIME TO TIME.
IN NO EVENT SHALL MIT, OR THEIR RESPECTIVE TRUSTEES, DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AND AFFILIATES BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OF ANY KIND, INCLUDING,
WITHOUT LIMITATION, ECONOMIC DAMAGES OR INJURY TO PROPERTY AND LOST PROFITS, REGARDLESS OF WHETHER MIT SHALL BE ADVISED, SHALL HAVE OTHER REASON TO KNOW, OR IN FACT SHALL KNOW OF THE POSSIBILITY OF THE FOREGOING.
If, by operation of law or otherwise, any of the aforementioned warranty disclaimers are determined inapplicable, LICENSEE’s sole remedy against MIT, regardless of the form of action, including, but not limited to, negligence and strict liability, shall be replacement of the licensed SERVER SOFTWARE or CLIENT SOFTWARE or the entire PROGRAM with an updated version, if one exists, or refund of the royalties paid to MIT.
