114     Recipient a non-exclusive, worldwide, royalty-free license under Contributor's
115     Copyright/Trade Secrets to do the following:
116    
117     (a) use, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display,
118     publicly perform and Distribute in source code and object code form the
119     Contribution of such Contributor and any such derivative works, subject to
120     the terms and conditions of this Agreement including Section 4; and
121    
122     (b) use the know-how, information and knowledge embedded in the
123     Contribution, without any obligation to keep the foregoing confidential so
124     long as Recipient does not otherwise violate this Agreement.
125    
126     2.2 Contributor grants to each Recipient, a world-wide, royalty-free, non-
127     exclusive license under Contributor's Necessary Patent Claims to make, use,
128     sell, offer for sale, or import the such Contributor's Contribution and the Program
129     only to the minimum extent necessary to exercise the rights granted in Section
130     2.1(a).
131    
132     2.3 Each Contributor represents that to its knowledge it has sufficient rights in
133     its Contribution, if any, to grant the licenses set forth in Sections 2.1 and 2.2.
134    
135     2.4 Except as expressly stated in Sections 2.1 and 2.2, Recipient receives no
136     rights or licenses to the intellectual property of any Contributor under this
137     Agreement, whether expressly, by implication, estoppel or otherwise. All rights in
138     the Program not expressly granted under this Agreement are reserved.
139    
140     2.5 Recipient shall retain its entire right, title, and interest in and to
141     Contributions disclosed by Recipient hereunder, including all Copyrights/Trade
142     Secret Rights and patent rights embodied therein, subject to the underlying rights
143     embodied in the Original Program and further subject to those rights expressly
144     granted in this Agreement. Recipient agrees that Recipient shall not remove or
145     alter any proprietary notices contained in the Contributions licensed to Recipient
146     hereunder and shall reproduce and include such notices on any copies of the
147     Contributions made by Recipient in any media.
148    
149     2.6 License to Marks.
150    
151     (a) OSCI shall retain all right, title and interest in and to the Marks
152     worldwide, subject to the limited license granted to Recipient in this
153     Section 2.6. OSCI hereby grants Recipient a non-exclusive, royalty-free,
154     limited license to use the Marks solely in connection with its exercise of
155     the rights granted pursuant to this Agreement and to indicate that the
156     products being marketed by Recipient are compatible with, and meet the
157     standards of, the SystemC modeling language. All uses of the Marks shall
158     be in accordance with OSCI’s trademark usage policy set forth in Exhibit
159     D.
160    
161     (b) Recipient shall assist OSCI to the extent reasonably necessary to
162     protect and maintain the Marks worldwide, including, but not limited to,
163     giving prompt notice to OSCI of any known or potential infringement of the
164     Marks, and cooperating with OSCI in preparing and executing any
165     documents necessary to register the Marks, or as may be required by the
166     laws or rules of any country or jurisdiction. In its sole discretion, OSCI
167     may commence, prosecute or defend any action or claim concerning the
168     Marks. OSCI shall have the right to control any such litigation, and
169     Recipient shall fully cooperate with OSCI in any such litigation. OSCI shall
170     reimburse Recipient for the reasonable costs associated with providing
171     such assistance, except to the extent that such costs result from
172     Recipient’s breach of this Section 2.6. Recipient shall not commence any
173     action regarding the Marks without OSCI’s prior written consent.
174    
175     (c) All goodwill with respect to the Marks shall accrue for the sole
176     benefit of OSCI. Recipient shall maintain the quality of any products,
177     associated packaging, collateral and marketing materials on which it uses
178     any of the Marks in a manner consistent with all terms, conditions and
179     requirements set forth in this Section 2.6 and at a level that meets or
180     exceeds Recipient’s overall reputation for quality and that is at least
181     commensurate with industry standards.
182    
183     2.7 RECIPIENT UNDERSTANDS THAT ALTHOUGH EACH CONTRIBUTOR
184     GRANTS THE LICENSES TO ITS CONTRIBUTIONS SET FORTH HEREIN, NO
185     ASSURANCES ARE PROVIDED BY ANY CONTRIBUTOR THAT THE
186     CONTRIBUTION ALONE OR IN COMBINATION WITH THE PROGRAM DOES
187     NOT INFRINGE THE PATENT OR OTHER INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY
188     RIGHTS OF ANY OTHER ENTITY. EACH CONTRIBUTOR DISCLAIMS ANY
189     LIABILITY TO RECIPIENT FOR CLAIMS BROUGHT BY ANY OTHER ENTITY
190     BASED ON INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS OR
191     OTHERWISE. In addition, as a condition to exercising the rights and licenses
192     granted hereunder, each Recipient hereby assumes sole responsibility to secure
193     any other intellectual property rights needed, if any. For example, if a third party
194     patent license is required to allow Recipient to Distribute the Program, it is
195     Recipient's responsibility to acquire that license before Distributing the Program.
196    
197     3. DESCRIPTION AND DEPOSIT OF CONTRIBUTIONS
198    
199     3.1 To the extent Recipient wishes to become a Contributor by making a
200     Contribution, such Contributor shall:
201    
202     (a) (i) deposit such Contribution in Source Code form at
203     http://www.systemc.org/ according to the Contribution instructions found at
204     such site, or (ii) disclose such Contribution at a meeting of any working
205     group of OSCI;
206    
207     (b) (i) describe such Contribution in reasonable detail on Exhibit B
208     (including the additions or changes such Contributor made to create the
209     Contribution and the date of any such changes or additions), (ii)
210     completing a Contribution Questionnaire with respect to such Contribution,
211     and (iii) delivering both documents to OSCI. All Contributions made after
212     the date hereof shall be effectuated by Contributor (x) amending Exhibit B
213     and delivering such amended Exhibit B to OSCI, which amended exhibit
214     shall automatically replace the existing Exhibit B, (y) competing a
215     Contribution Questionnaire with respect to such Contribution, and (z)
216     delivering both documents to OSCI;
217    
218     (c) cause such Contribution to contain a file documenting such
219     Contributor's name and contact information, additions or changes such
220     Contributor made to create the Contribution, and the date of any such
221     changes or additions;
222    
223     (d) cause such Contribution to include in each file a prominent
224     statement substantially similar to the following: "The following code is
225     derived, directly or indirectly, from the SystemC source code Copyright (c)
226     1996-{date here} by all Contributors. All Rights reserved. The contents of
227     this file are subject to the restrictions and limitations set forth in the
228     SystemC Open Source License Version 2.3 (the "License"). You may not
229     use this file except in compliance with such restrictions and limitations.
230     You may obtain instructions on how to receive a copy of the License at
231     http://www.systemc.org/. Software distributed by Contributors under the
232     License is distributed exclusively on an "AS IS" basis, WITHOUT
233     WARRANTY OF ANY KIND, either express or implied. See the License
234     for the specific language governing rights and limitations under the
235     License."; and
236     (e) cause such Contribution to include a text file titled "LEGAL" which
237     describes any intellectual property rights of which Contributor is aware that
238     it or any third party may hold in the functionality or code of such
239     Contribution.
240    
241     3.2 OSCI or the administrators of the http://www.systemc.org/ web site shall
242     have the right to authorize removal from such site any Contribution at any time.
243    
244     4. REQUIREMENTS OF DISTRIBUTION
245    
246     4.1 A Recipient may choose to Distribute the Program in object code form
247     under its own license agreement, provided that:
248    
249     (a) Recipient complies with the terms and conditions of this
250     Agreement; and
251    
252     (b) the terms and conditions of Recipient's license agreement with its
253     licensees:
254    
255     i. effectively disclaim on behalf of all Contributors all
256     warranties and conditions, express and implied, including
257     warranties or conditions of title and non-infringement, and implied
258     warranties or conditions of merchantability and fitness for a
259     particular purpose;
260    
261     ii. effectively exclude on behalf of all Contributors all liability for
262     damages, including, but not limited to, direct, indirect, special,
263     incidental and consequential damages, such as lost profits;
264    
265     iii. state that any provisions which differ from this Agreement
266     are offered by that Recipient alone and not by any other party; and
267    
268     iv. state that source code for the Program is available from such
269     Recipient, and inform licensees how to obtain it in a reasonable
270     manner on or through a medium customarily used for software
271     exchange.
272    
273     4.2 If a Recipient chooses to Distribute the Program in source code form then:
274    
275     (a) the Program must be Distributed under this Agreement; and
276    
277     (b) a copy of this Agreement must be included with each copy of the
278     Program.
279    
280     4.3 Each Recipient must include the following in a conspicuous location in the
281     Program so Distributed or transferred:
282     Copyright (c) 1996-{date here}, by all Contributors. All rights
283     reserved.
284    
285     4.4 In addition, each Recipient that creates and Distributes or otherwise
286     transfers a Modification whether or not such Modification has been deposited
287     pursuant to Section 3 must identify the originator of such Modification in a
288     manner that reasonably allows third parties to identify the originator of the
289     Modification.
290    
291     5. INDEMNIFICATION
292    
293     A Recipient who Distributes the Program (a "Distributor") may accept certain
294     responsibilities with respect to end users, business partners and the like. While this
295     license is intended to facilitate the commercial use of the Program, a Distributor shall
296     Distribute the Program in a manner which does not create potential liability for
297     Contributors. Therefore each Distributor hereby agrees to defend and indemnify every
298     Contributor ("Indemnified Contributor") against any losses, damages and costs
299     (collectively "Losses") arising from claims, lawsuits and other legal actions brought by a
300     third party against the Indemnified Contributor to the extent caused by the acts or
301     omissions of such Distributor, including but not limited to the terms and conditions under
302     which Distributor offered the Program, in connection with its Distribution of the Program.
303     The obligations in this section do not apply to any claims or Losses relating to any
304     actual or alleged intellectual property infringement of the Program. In order to qualify,
305     an Indemnified Contributor must: (a) promptly notify the Distributor in writing of such
306     claim, and (b) allow the Distributor to control, and cooperate with the Distributor in, the
307     defense and any related settlement negotiations. The Indemnified Contributor may
308     participate in the defense of any such claim at its own expense.
309    
310     For example, a Recipient might include the Program in a commercial product offering,
311     Product X. That Recipient is then a Distributor. If that Distributor then makes
312     performance claims, or offers warranties, support, or indemnity or any other license
313     terms related to Product X, those performance claims, offers and other terms are such
314     Distributor's responsibility alone. Under this section, the Distributor would have to
315     defend claims against the Contributors related to those performance claims, offers, and
316     other terms, and if a court requires any Contributor to pay any damages as a result, the
317     Distributor must pay those damages.
318    
319     6. NO WARRANTY
320    
321     EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, THE PROGRAM IS
322     PROVIDED EXCLUSIVELY ON AN "AS IS" BASIS, WITHOUT WARRANTIES OR
323     CONDITIONS OF ANY KIND, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED INCLUDING, WITHOUT
324     LIMITATION, ANY WARRANTIES OR CONDITIONS OF TITLE, NON-INFRINGEMENT,
325     MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. EACH RECIPIENT IS
326     SOLELY RESPONSIBLE FOR DETERMINING THE APPROPRIATENESS OF ITS USE AND
327     DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM AND ASSUMES ALL RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH ITS
328     EXERCISE OF RIGHTS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO
329     THE RISKS AND COSTS OF PROGRAM ERRORS, COMPLIANCE WITH APPLICABLE
330     LAWS, DAMAGE TO OR LOSS OF DATA, PROGRAMS OR EQUIPMENT, AND
331     UNAVAILABILITY OR INTERRUPTION OF OPERATIONS. THIS DISCLAIMER OR
332     WARRANTY CONSTITUTES AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THIS AGREEMENT. NO USE OF
333     THE PROGRAM OR ANY MODIFICATIONS THERETO ARE AUTHORIZED HEREUNDER
334     EXCEPT UNDER THIS DISCLAIMER.
335    
336     7. DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
337    
338     EXCEPT AS EXPRESSLY SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER RECIPIENT NOR
339     ANY CONTRIBUTORS SHALL HAVE ANY LIABILITY FOR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT,
340     INCIDENTAL, SPECIAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES (INCLUDING
341     WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS), HOWEVER CAUSED AND ON ANY THEORY OF
342     LIABILITY, WHETHER IN CONTRACT, STRICT LIABILITY, OR TORT (INCLUDING
343     NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE) ARISING IN ANY WAY OUT OF THE USE OR
344     DISTRIBUTION OF THE PROGRAM OR THE EXERCISE OF ANY RIGHTS GRANTED
345     HEREUNDER, EVEN IF ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.
346    
347     8. U.S. GOVERNMENT USE
348    
349     If Recipient is licensing the Program on behalf of any unit or agency of the United States
350     Government, then the Program and any related documentation is commercial computer
351     software, and, pursuant to FAR 12.212 or DFARS 227.7202 and their successors, as
352     applicable, shall be licensed to the Government under the terms and conditions of this
353     Agreement.
354    
355     9. PATENT CLAIMS
356    
357     If Recipient institutes patent litigation against any entity (including a cross-claim,
358     counterclaim or declaratory judgment claim in a lawsuit) alleging that the Program itself
359     (excluding combinations of the Program with other software or hardware) infringes such
360     Recipient's patent(s), then the rights granted to Recipient by each Contributor under
361     Section 2.2 shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed.
362    
363     10. TERMINATION
364    
365     All Recipient's rights under this Agreement shall terminate if Recipient fails to comply
366     with any of the material terms or conditions of this Agreement and does not cure such
367     failure in a reasonable period of time after becoming aware of such noncompliance. If
368     such occurs, Recipient shall cease use and Distribution of the Program based upon the
369     rights granted to Recipient under this Agreement as soon as reasonably practicable.
370     However, Recipient's obligations under this Agreement and any licenses granted by
371     Recipient relating to the Program shall survive such termination.
372    
373     11. LICENSE VERSIONS
374    
375     OSCI may publish new versions (including revisions) of this Agreement from time to
376     time. Each new version of the Agreement will be given a distinguishing version number.
377     The Program may always be Distributed subject to the version of the Agreement under
378     which it was received. In addition, after a new version of the Agreement is published,
379     Contributor may elect to Distribute the Program under the new version. No one other
380     than OSCI, acting by a vote of at least 75% of the members of its Board of Directors,
381     has the right to modify this Agreement; provided that Exhibit B and Exhibit C may be
382     amended as specifically set forth in Section 3.1(b), and Exhibit D may be amended as
383     specifically set forth in Section 1.10.
384    
385     12. ELECTRONIC ACCEPTANCE
386    
387     This Agreement may be executed either electronically or on paper. By clicking on the
388     “Accept” button, Recipient warrants that it agrees to all of the terms of this Agreement,
389     that Recipient is authorized to enter into this Agreement, and that this Agreement is
390     legally binding upon Recipient. If Recipient does not agree to be bound by this
391     Agreement, then Recipient shall click the “Decline” button and Recipient shall not
392     receive any rights from the Contributors nor shall Recipient download any materials,
393     including the Program.
394    
395     13. GENERAL
396    
397     This Agreement represents the complete agreement concerning the subject matter
398     hereof and supersedes all prior agreements or representations, oral or written,
399     regarding the subject matter hereof. If any provision of this Agreement is invalid or

401     remainder of the terms of this Agreement, and without further action by the parties
402     hereto, such provision shall be reformed to the minimum extent necessary to make such
403     provision valid and enforceable.
404

451    
452     No Possessives or Plurals. Since they are not nouns, the Marks should never be used in the
453     possessive or plural forms. For example, it is not appropriate to write “SystemC’s software.”
454    
455     No Use as Verbs or as Puns. The Marks should never be used as verbs or as puns.

458     III. PROPER ATTRIBUTION
459    
460     Trademark ownership is attributed in two ways, with the use of a symbol (TM, SM, ®) after the mark
461     and with a legal legend, usually found at the end of a document following the copyright notice.
462     Following are OSCI’s rules for symbols and legends to attribute the Marks:
463    
464     Symbols:
465    
466     Which Symbol Do I Use?
467     The Marks generally function as trademarks rather than servicemarks. Unless you are
468     specifically directed otherwise, please use the ™ or ® symbol after the Marks.
469    
470     Where Do I Place the ® Symbol?
471     The ™ or ® symbol is placed immediately after the mark, either in superscript or subscript.
472    
473     When Do I Use the Symbol?
474     The ™ or ® symbol is to be used after the Marks in the following instances:
475    
476     Most Prominent Uses : A ™ or ® symbol is required after prominent uses of the Marks, e.g., in
477     the headlines and large print text of web pages, advertisements, other promotional materials
478     and press releases, except where space limitations or specific style considerations prevent
479     compliance with this requirement.
480    
481     First Use in Text: A ™ or ® symbol is required after the first use of each Mark in text, e.g.
482     advertising copy or the body of press releases, even though the symbol may have already
483     appeared in the headline or after another prominent use of the mark in the same document.
484    
485     All Logos: The ™ or ® symbol must appear after all logos incorporating the Marks.
486    
487    
488     IV. Legends
489    
490     All Marks that appear on a web page or in a press release, advertisement or other written
491     material (whether in print or electronic form) must be attributed in an appropriate legend. The
492     legend may be presented in “mouseprint” but must be large enough to be read easily. Legends
493     generally appear at the end of a document or the bottom of a web page but may be placed
494     elsewhere, e.g. the inside cover of documentation.
495    
496     The OSCI Legend: The following legend should be used in all materials in which any of the
497     Marks appear:
498    
499     [Insert the Marks] are trademarks or registered trademarks of Open SystemC Initiative, Inc. in
500     the United States and other countries and are used with permission.
501    
502    
503     V. MARKS NEVER COMBINED
504    
505     The Marks should never be combined with the marks of any business other than OSCI. The
506     Marks should always appear visually separate from any other marks appearing in the same
507     materials such that each mark creates a distinct commercial impression. It would, for instance,
508     not be appropriate to superimpose the logo of another business over any OSCI logo.
509    
510    
511     VI. LOGOS
512    
513     Logos incorporating the Marks can only be used in the format provided to you by OSCI for
514     incorporation into your materials or web pages. The logos provided to you by OSCI cannot be
515     modified in any way without OSCI’s prior written approval. Logos copied from OSCI web pages
516     or other materials may not to be used. Please contact webmaster@systemc.org to obtain
517     electronic files containing the OSCI logos and to ask any questions regarding the logos.
