115 Copyright/Trade Secrets to do the following:
116
117 (a) use, reproduce, prepare derivative works of, publicly display,

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
400 unenforceable under applicable law, it shall not affect the validity or enforceability of the
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

441
442
443 II. PROPER USE OF MARKS
444
445 Trademarks and service marks function as adjectives and generally should not be used as
446 nouns or verbs. Accordingly, as often as possible, the Marks should be used as adjectives
447 immediately preceding the generic noun that refers to the service in question. For example:
448
449 The SystemC™ software
450 The SystemC™ LRM
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.
456
457
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
