Each Burstware Conductor requires a Burstware License Key configured for the host name or IP address of the computer on which the Burstware Conductor is installed. "Burstware License Key" means the unique, encrypted software program provided by Burst (only upon payment of the applicable license fees) that is designed to prevent use of the Licensed Software beyond the scope of the license paid for by Eagle by limiting, as appropriate, and in addition to other limits, the number of Concurrent Burstware Player Connections, the amount of Managed Bandwidth, and the number of Burstware Servers that the Burstware Conductor can manage.

"Burstware Server(TM)" means the computer program included among the Licensed Software that stores audio and/or video content and delivers it to client computers for viewing with the Burstware Player. "Concurrent Burstware Player Connections" means the number of simultaneous connections between Burstware Players installed on client computers and Burstware Servers installed on hardware servers that the Burstware License Key enables the Burstware Conductor to manage simultaneously. "Documentation" means all materials in written, computer readable or other form containing information about the Licensed Software that accompany the Licensed Software, or that Burst may deliver to Eagle during the term of this Agreement for use in the marketing and distribution of the Licensed Software and for distribution to End Users.

"Program Error" means a program defect or "bug" sufficiently material that it results in a version of the Licensed Software, in the form delivered by Burst to Eagle, at the time it is delivered by Burst to Eagle, failing to substantially conform to the Documentation for that version.

"Trademarks" means the trademarks listed in Exhibit B, which Burst may amend at any time upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to Eagle. 1. LICENSED SOFTWARE Burstware.

Except as expressly stated in this section, the license and rights granted under this Agreement are non-exclusive, and nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as granting to Eagle any exclusive rights with respect to any other field of use. 2.4 Exclusivity Carve-Out. All existing customers with licenses covering the field-of-use identified in paragraph 2.3 are grandfathered. Any parties with whom Burst is currently 3 <PAGE> in negotiations for purposes of licensing, merger, acquisition, or an asset sale as of January 31, 2001 are also grandfathered and covered by the language of this exemption. 2.5 Extension of Exclusive Period. Eagle shall be entitled at its option to extend the Exclusive Period for an additional twelve (12) months on the same terms and conditions, provided Eagle purchases at least an additional $200,000 of client licenses during the initial 24-month term. 2.6 Licensed Territory. The United States and its territories and possessions. 2.7 License Fees. The initial Burstware license term of 12 months will be extended to 24 months.

In the event of a Burst merger or asset sale prior to the end of Eagle's 144 holding period or the effective date of an S-1 registration of Burst common stock (stock received in exchange for an investment in Burst, see, attached Exhibit A), Eagle's Burst shares will be, at Eagle's option, liquidated for a value equal to the value received by owners of freely-tradable Burst common stock. If the liquidation value of Burst stock is less than $0.50, Eagle's Burst license will be extended an additional (12) months at no additional cost to Eagle. 2.12 Renewal of License Upon Acquisition of Burst.Com. If Burst or its assets are acquired during the term of Eagle's software license, and if Burstware technology is subsequently embodied in a new software package marketed by the acquiring company, Eagle will be accorded a license to the new software under terms substantially similar to the terms of the initial Burstware license at no additional cost to Eagle. 2.13 Documentation.

In the event that Eagle creates any Java-related API and distributes such API to others for application development, Eagle must promptly publish broadly, an accurate specification for such API for free use by all developers of Java-based software. 2.17 Hazardous Environments. The Licensed Software is not designed or intended for use in online control equipment in environments requiring fail-safe performance, such as the operation of nuclear facilities, aircraft communication or control systems or life support systems, in which software failure could lead to personal injury or severe property or environmental damage.

Eagle acknowledges that the Licensed Software, all enhancements, corrections and modifications to the Licensed Software, all copyrights, patents, trade secrets, or trademarks or other intellectual property rights protecting or pertaining to any aspect of the Licensed Software (or any enhancements, corrections or modifications) and the Documentation, are and shall remain the sole and exclusive property of Burst and, where applicable, Burst's suppliers. This Agreement does not convey title or ownership to Eagle, but instead gives Eagle only the limited rights set forth in Sections 1 and 2. Burst reserves all rights not expressly granted by this Agreement. 4.2 Joint Ownership. Subject to negotiation and reasonable business and legal consideration, Burst and Eagle agree to jointly file patent applications covering inventions embodying intellectual property and know-how of the two companies that may result from Eagle's development of unique applications of the Licensed Software. 4.3 Software Development or Customization.

Such work is to be billed at Burst's actual cost plus 30%. 4.4 Restrictions. Except as expressly authorized in this Agreement, Eagle may not: (i) use, make, sublicense, rent, lease, sell, display, distribute or copy originals or copies of the Licensed Software, or to permit anyone else to do so; (ii) modify, create derivative works of, reverse engineer, unencrypt, decompile, disassemble or otherwise translate the Licensed Software or allow anyone else to do so (except and only to the extent that such activity is expressly permitted by applicable law notwithstanding this limitation); (iii) remove any patent, copyright or trademark or other intellectual property notices that may appear on any part of the Licensed Software or the documentation; and (iv) assign or transfer its rights under this Agreement or its rights to the Licensed Software without the prior written consent of Burst. 6 <PAGE> Upon any such transfer or assignment, Eagle must transfer all copies of the Licensed Software and assignee must agree in writing to all the terms of this Agreement. 4.5 Transfer.

Eagle acknowledges that money damages may not be an adequate remedy for any breach or violation of any requirement set forth in Section 4 of this Agreement and that any such breach or violation may leave Burst without an adequate remedy at law. Eagle therefore agrees that, in addition to any other remedies available at law, in equity or under this Agreement, Burst shall be entitled to obtain temporary, preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, without bond, from a court of competent jurisdiction to restrain any such breach or violation. 5.
