Edwards Properties in the case of A.G. Edwards as Indemnitor, and the Kanbay Properties or Deliverables, in the case of Kanbay as Indemnitor) infringes a proprietary right of a third party, the Indemnitor shall, with respect to and to the extent of the portion of the claim pertaining to such Property, at its sole expense, defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Indemnitee with respect to such claim and all costs, expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees), fines, penalties, deficiencies, losses, liabilities (including MASTER SERVICES AGREEMENT V.09.17.03 -5- <Page> settlements and judgments) resulting from, arising from or relating to such claim. THIS SECTION SETS FORTH THE COMPLETE LIABILITY OF THE PARTIES WITH RESPECT TO INFRINGEMENT OF INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. 6.2. SOLE CONTROL. If an Indemnitee becomes subject to a third party claim, notice thereof shall be given by the Indemnitee to the Indemnitor as promptly as practicable. Any delay by the Indemnitee in providing such notice shall not limit the Indemnitor's obligations pursuant to this Agreement except to the extent of any losses caused by such delay. To the extent of the portion of the claim for which the Indemnitor is responsible pursuant to this Agreement, the Indemnitor under any of the indemnities set forth in this Agreement shall promptly assume and have sole control of the defense of any such claim and all negotiations for settlement; provided, however, that the Indemnitee may, at its own cost, participate, through its attorneys or otherwise, in such investigation, trial and defense of such claim and any appeal arising therefrom. The Indemnitee shall cooperate, at the cost of the Indemnitor, with the Indemnitor in the investigation, trial and defense of such claim and any appeal arising therefrom. The Indemnitor shall not be obligated to indemnify the Indemnitee under any settlement made without the Indemnitor's consent or in the event the Indemnitee fails to reasonably cooperate (at the Indemnitor's expense) in the defense of any such claim. The Indemnitor shall have no authority to make any admission on behalf of the Indemnitee or enter into any agreement imposing an affirmative obligation on the Indemnitee without the Indemnitee's prior written consent. 6.3. OPTION TO AVOID INFRINGEMENT. Without limiting Kanbay's indemnification obligations hereunder, in the event that in Kanbay's opinion, any portion of the Kanbay Properties or any Deliverable developed in connection with this Agreement is likely to or does become the subject of a claim of infringement of any letters patent, copyright, trademark, service mark, trade name, trade secret or other intellectual or proprietary right of any third party (the "Disputed Portion"), Kanbay may, at its sole option and expense, procure for A.G. Edwards the right to continue using the Disputed Portion, modify the Disputed Portion to make it noninfringing, or replace the Disputed Portion with a substantially similar, noninfringing replacement. If Kanbay does not exercise one of the above options, (i) Kanbay shall send A.G. Edwards a written notice requiring A.G. Edwards to terminate its use of the Disputed Portion within a reasonable period (but not less than thirty (30) days), (ii) A.G. Edwards shall terminate its use of the Disputed Portion within said period, and (iii) Kanbay shall refund a pro rata portion of fees paid by A.G. Edwards to Kanbay representing the fees paid for the development or provision of the Disputed Portion. If, however, A.G. Edwards fails to terminate its use of the Disputed Portion after such reasonable notice period, A.G. Edwards shall indemnify Kanbay for any and all claims of infringement against it to the extent resulting from A.G. Edwards's continued use of the Disputed Portion. 7.
