Use: --- (i) Subject to Licensor's prior approval as hereinafter required, Licensee shall commence the manufacture, sale and distribution of each and every one of the Products as soon as practicable after the Commencement Date. If Licensee has not commenced the manufacture, sale and distribution of an approved line of Products by June 30, 1990, Licensor may elect to treat such an occurrence as an incurable default by Licensee under this agreement. (ii) Licensee shall not cause or authorize any use of the Trademarks in any area of the world outside the Territory and shall not knowingly manufacture, sell or otherwise deal with or distribute any of the Products or any other goods, articles or services bearing any words or symbols associated with or confusingly similar to the Trademarks or associated with Licensor on behalf of, or to, any person, firm or corporation, that Licensee believes or has reason to believe intend, or are likely, to deal with the same in any area of the world outside the Territory. Licensee shall, upon notice from Licensor, immediately and permanently cease delivering Products to any person, firm or corporation named in such notice as one that directly or indirectly deals with the Products outside the Territory. (iii) Nothing contained in this Paragraph 2.a. or this agreement shall prevent Licensor from (a) using or granting others the right or license to use the Trademarks on or in connection with the Products in any area of the world other than the Territory or on or in connection with goods (other than the Products) of all other types and descriptions in any area of the world, including the Territory or (b) producing or having produced limited quantities of the Products to be used by Licensor or its affiliates in the Territory specifically for promotional and advertising purposes and not for sale. (iv) Licensee warrants and represents that it has, and will continue to have throughout the entire term of this agreement, the legal right to enter into this agreement and to assume the obligations hereunder and that there are no, and Licensee shall not enter into during the term hereof, contracts, agreements or -3- <PAGE> understandings with anyone which would in any way restrict or prevent Licensee from its performances and obligations under this agreement. Licensee shall be responsible for obtaining, at its own expense, any and all licenses, permits, approvals (including governmental or other agency licenses, permits and approvals) necessary for Licensee to design, manufacture, advertise, distribute and sell the Products, or to pay royalties or taxes or to fulfill any other obligation or exercise any right of Licensee under this License. In the event Licensee is unable, for any reason, to obtain all of the necessary permits, licenses or approvals prior to the Commencement Date, Licensor shall have the right to terminate this agreement upon notice to Licensee without any period of grace and without any obligation to Licensee whatsoever. b. Best Efforts: Licensee shall, throughout the term of the License and as permitted by this agreement, constantly use its best efforts in the advertising, promoting, selling and distributing and any other dealing with or disposal of the Products to protect the good name and goodwill associated with the Trademarks and Licensor and to obtain the greatest number of sales of the Products, such sales to be reported in measurements of both units and local currency, throughout the entire Territory and the entire term of this agreement and any extensions thereof. Except as provided in Paragraphs 2.a.(iii) and 2.q. hereof, Licensee shall be responsible for and shall assume and pay for all costs and expenses related to the design, manufacture, sale, promotion, advertising and distribution of the Products. c. Royalties: (i) Guaranteed Royalties: Licensee shall pay to Licensor or its nominee guaranteed minimum royalties (hereinafter called "Guaranteed Royalty" or "Guaranteed Royalties") in the amount specified in Paragraph S.9. of the Schedule; which shall be payable in four (4) equal installments with each such installment due on or before the first (lst) day of each License Quarter (i.e., October 1, January 1, April 1 and July 1) of each such License Year. (ii) Earned Royalties: In addition to Guaranteed Royalties, Licensee shall pay to Licensor or its nominee percentage royalties (hereinafter called "Earned Royalties") for each License Year in the amount equal to the amount by which in each License Year the amount specified in Paragraph S.10. of the Schedule exceeds the Guaranteed Royalty for such License Year. Earned Royalties shall be payable in accordance with the terms and conditions of Paragraph 2.d. and 2.e. below. -4- <PAGE> (iii) Interest: All sums including but not limited to the Guaranteed and Earned Royalties, that shall not be paid on the due date shall bear interest at an amount equal to the highest percentage allowed by law over the prime rate of interest as established by The First National Bank of Chicago in Chicago, Illinois applicable to ninety (90) day commercial loans effective on the date that such sum should have been paid from such due date until the date on which such sum is paid in full. d. Statements: (i) Within forty-five (45) days after each License Quarter, Licensee shall furnish to Licensor or its nominee a complete and accurate statement certified to be true by the Chief Financial Officer or Company Secretary of Licensee showing for the preceding License Quarter and the License Year through such period the units, description and computations in local currency of "net sales," as hereinafter defined, of all the Products distributed, sold or otherwise disposed of by Licensee in each country in the Territory during the preceding License Quarter, the computation of Earned Royalties as set forth in Paragraph 2.c.(ii) hereof and the amount of Earned Royalties due and payable thereon. When during any License Year such statement shows that the amount of the Guaranteed Royalty for such License Year has been exceeded, Licensee shall commence payment of Earned Royalties for such License Year by remittance, accompanying such statement, of Earned Royalties payable through the period covered by such statement. Any overpayments or underpayments of Earned Royalties caused by errors in prior quarterly statements revealed by the statement for the last License Quarter of any License Year shall be immediately adjusted by the parties. Such statement shall also reflect the advertising expenditures made by Licensee through such period pursuant to Paragraph 2.q. hereof (which will include the details of all such advertising expenditures, supported by copies of vouchers and copies of any print advertising). (ii) As used in this agreement, the term "net sales" means the invoice price charged by Licensee for the Products less (x) refunds, credits and allowances actually made or allowed to customers for returned Products, (y) customary trade discounts (including anticipations) afforded to and actually taken by customers against payment for the Products and (z) value added tax (only where applicable) assessed on sales. If Licensee sells Products to a marketing organization or any individual or company in whole or in part controlled by Licensee, the invoice price used to determine net -5- <PAGE> sales hereunder shall be the invoice price at which the Products are resold by such entity to an unrelated customer in an arm's length transaction. (iii) In the event the percentage of returns of Products in any License Year exceeds thirty percent (30%) of net sales for such License Year, then Licensor may elect to treat such an occurrence as an incurable default by Licensee under this agreement and Paragraph 7. hereof shall apply. e. Payments. (i) All payments Licensee is required to make by the terms of this Agreement shall be made in United States Dollars through a bank specified by Licensor. No deduction shall be made for income or other taxes without Licensor's written permission, unless Licensee is compelled to do so by law; in which case Licensee shall provide Licensor with evidence that such tax has been paid in the proper amount. Licensee shall give due notice to Licensor of any such proposed deductions. In the event payments in the manner provided in this Paragraph 2.e. shall become impossible or illegal by reason of the action of governmental authority, then, at Licensor's option, this Agreement may be terminated; and whether or not Licensor exercises such option, while such restrictions remain in effect, all payments due Licensor shall be made to an account in the Territory, or elsewhere where permitted by law, to be designated by Licensor. (ii) In determining the proper rate of exchange to be applied to the payments due hereunder, it is agreed that: (a) Licensee shall calculate Earned Royalties on a calendar month basis in local currency (with each such month considered to be a separate accounting period for the purpose of computing Earned Royalties). (b) Licensee shall compute a conversion of each such monthly total into United States currency utilizing the rate of exchange in effect on the last day of each relevant calendar month as determined by the Bankers Trust Co. of New York City, New York (U.S.A.). (c) The converted amounts (in U.S. currency) shall be added together on a cumulative basis and when during any License Year such computation shows -6- <PAGE> that the amount of the Guaranteed Royalty for such License Year has been exceeded, Licensee shall commence payment of Earned Royalties for such License Year by remittance of such excess in U.S. currency to Licensor; which remittance will accompany the statement required by Paragraph 2.d. hereof. If there is no excess, no Earned Royalties will be payable for such License Year by Licensee (but in no event shall Licensor be responsible for returning to Licensee any portion of the Guaranteed Royalties paid or payable). f. Records and Audit: Licensee shall keep accurate books of account and records (including but not limited to utilization of consecutively numbered invoices) covering all transactions relating to this agreement or arising out of the License (which records shall be maintained separately from Licensee's books and records relating to other items manufactured or sold by Licensee) and shall permit Licensor or any of its nominees, employees or agents to have full access to and to inspect the same at all reasonable hours of the day to enable Licensor and its nominees, employees or agents to conduct an examination of and to copy, at Licensor's expense, all such books and records. Licensee shall maintain in good order and condition all such books and records for a period of two (2) years after the expiration or termination of the License or, in the event of a dispute between the parties hereto, until that dispute is resolved, whichever date is later, and such books and records shall be kept at the address stated in Paragraph S.12 of the Schedule; except as such address may be changed from time to time in accordance with Paragraph 9. hereof. Receipt or acceptance by Licensor of any statement furnished pursuant hereto or any sums paid by Licensee hereunder shall not preclude Licensor from questioning the correctness thereof at any time, and if any inconsistencies or mistakes are discovered in such statement or payment, they shall be immediately rectified and prompt adjustment and corresponding payments shall be made to compensate therefor. g. Expenses of Conductinq Examinations: If an examination referred to in Paragraph 2.f. above discloses an overpayment or underpayment of Earned Royalties, the appropriate amount shall be immediately paid or refunded to the party entitled thereto. If such examination reveals that for the period covered by such examination there is an error of five percent (5%) or more in the Earned Royalty previously reported as being due from Licensee, all expenses involved in the conducting of such examination shall be borne by Licensee. If such error is less than five percent (5%), such expenses shall be borne by Licensor. In the event an examination discloses an underpayment in excess of nine percent (9%) for -7- <PAGE> any License Year, then Licensor may elect to treat such an occurrence as an incurable default by Licensee under this agreement. h. Product Quality: Licensee hereby warrants and agrees that, the Products manufactured, advertised, promoted, sold, distributed or otherwise disposed of under this agreement shall bear faithfully produced Trademarks and shall meet the high standards of quality, workmanship, material, design, size, color and style established by Licensor in accordance with the terms and conditions of Paragraphs 2.h., 2.i., 2.j. and 2.k. hereof; and Licensee will not knowingly cause or authorize any Product not conforming to the conditions of this Paragraph 2. to be available for sale within the Territory as doing so may adversely affect Licensor's goodwill in the Trademarks. All Products made available for sale in the Territory shall conform to and comply with, in all respects, all governmental and jurisdictional laws, rules and regulations governing the design, quality or safety of such Products. Licensee shall not cause or authorize: the use of any substandard or offensive materials in or used in connection with the Products; in its actions under or related to this License, any violation of any governmental or jurisdictional law, rule or regulation, including but not limited to regulations imposing advertising standards or requiring trade or content description of Products; the use of the Trademarks or any other word, device or symbol associated in any way with Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates in connection with any product or activity that is not the subject of this License. i. Submission of Samples of Products, Wrappinq Materials and Related Materials: Licensee acknowledges that all Products and other items bearing the Trademarks must be approved in advance by Licensor. Licensee shall, at its own expense submit to Licensor or its nominee at least two (2) signed and dated samples, prototypes or equivalents acceptable to Licensor of each of the cartons, containers, labels, wrappers, packages or other inner or outer packaging materials, fixtures, displays, artwork, printing, advertising, sales, marketing and promotional materials and other items bearing the Trademarks and intended for use in connection with the Products (hereinafter called "Wrapping Materials and Related Materials") and of each of the Products that Licensee intends to manufacture, advertise, promote, sell, distribute or otherwise dispose of in the Territory from time to time.

If any sales by Licensee of Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials do not conform in Licensor's sole opinion to the previously approved samples, then Licensor shall have the right to notify Licensee, in writing, specifying in what respect Licensor disapproves; in such event, Licensee shall, immediately upon receipt of notification of disapproval, suspend all advertising, manufacture, sale and distribution of the disapproved Product, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials until Licensee has made all necessary changes and corrections to the satisfaction of Licensor and obtained Licensor's written reapproval of such Product, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials. Sales by Licensee of Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials that do not conform to the previously approved samples shall constitute a material default under the terms of this License. Licensor shall use its best efforts to signify its approval or reapproval (which shall not be unreasonably withheld) or disapproval within fourteen (14) business days of receipt by Licensor of any Product, Wrapping Material or Related Material. In the event Licensee shall not have been advised of the approval or disapproval by the beginning of the second (2nd) full business day preceding such deadline, Licensee shall notify such person or persons as Licensor may designate from time to time, by telegram, telex, cable or facsimile, and in the event Licensor's designees shall not have notified Licensee of Licensor's disapproval within two (2) business days after receipt of such telegram, telex, cable or facsimile, Licensor's approval of such Product, Wrapping Material or Related Material shall be conclusively presumed. j.

Also, to ensure that all of the Products, Wrapping Materials and Related Materials dealt with by Licensee are constantly maintained in conformance with the previously approved samples, Licensee shall take such action as may be required to ensure that Licensor and its designated agents and representatives shall have the right to enter upon and inspect, at all reasonable hours in the day, any office, factory, warehouse or other facility where any of the Products or Wrapping Materials and Related Materials are designed, manufactured, stored or otherwise dealt with; and Licensor shall have the right to take, without payment, such samples of any of the Products, Wrapping Materials and Related Materials at any such place as Licensor reasonably requires for the purposes of such inspection. If any such dispatched or taken Products, Wrapping Materials and Related Materials fail to conform to the previously approved samples, then Licensor shall have the right to notify Licensee in writing, specifying in what respect Licensor disapproves; in such event, Licensee shall, immediately upon receipt of notification of disapproval, suspend all manufacture, sale and distribution and wherever possible call back from Licensee's customers all of the disapproved Product, Wrapping Material or Related Material until it has made all necessary changes and corrections to the satisfaction of Licensor and obtained Licensor's written reapproval of such Product, Wrapping Material or Related Material. Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials that do not conform to the approved samples, including seconds, shall not be sold, distributed or otherwise released by Licensee unless all references to all Trademarks shall have first been completely obliterated or removed or otherwise made totally unidentifiable. (ii) Licensee may, however, dispose of Products as "off-quality" merchandise. Whenever such off-quality merchandise is sold as aforesaid, no use of or reference to the Trademarks shall be made. Licensee shall notify its customers to assure compliance by them with the requirements of this Paragraph 2.k.(ii). Licensee shall be deemed to have met this obligation by its removal of all labels, tags and marks which would identify the goods as Products and by placing the following legend on all purchasers' invoices for such goods: -10- <PAGE> "Purchaser agrees that it will not use the Trademarks (here described, e.g., PLAYBOY, PLAYMATE and RABBIT HEAD DESIGN) or any other phrase or statement using the Trademarks (here described, e.g., PLAYBOY, PLAYMATE and RABBIT HEAD DESIGN) on any advertising, publicity, labeling, wrapping or packaging with respect to the merchandise listed hereon." (iii) In the event the percentage of off-quality Products in any License Year exceeds thirty percent (30%) of net sales for such License Year, then Licensor may elect to treat such an occurrence as an incurable default by Licensee under this agreement and Paragraph 7. hereof shall apply. 1. List of Sources and Customers: Licensee, on demand from Licensor, shall provide Licensor with a list of the names and addresses of all manufacturing sources, subcontractors, suppliers, dealers, wholesalers, retailers and customers who have been engaged in the manufacture, sale, distribution or other dealings with the Products, Wrapping Materials and Related Materials during the term of the License (such list shall include customers to whom Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials have been delivered after the expiration or termination of this License); and such list shall, if so requested by Licensor, contain the full specification of any designs, utility models, patents or trademarks that may be involved, directly or indirectly, in the manufacture, production or distribution of any of the Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials; and Licensee shall obtain the consent of any relevant third parties for such disclosure.

Advertising Expenditures: In addition to all other amounts or payments, and not to be credited against any Guaranteed or Earned Royalty payment otherwise required under this agreement, Licensee agrees to spend within each License Year for advertising and promotion (specifically trade and/or consumer media such as newspapers, magazines, television and/or radio), not less than three percent (3%) of Licensee's net sales for such License Year. A portion of such advertising sums shall be paid to Licensor as follows: (i) Concurrently with the remittance of the statements required under Paragraph 2.d.(i) hereof, Licensee shall remit to Licensor for use in Licensor's advertising and promotion pool an amount equal to one percent (1%) of Licensee's net sales for the time period covered by such statement, which amount shall be credited against Licensee's annual advertising expenditures required herein. (ii) If the report included with the statement required under Paragraph 2.d.(i) hereof for the last License Quarter of each License Year shows that the required amount has not been spent, the difference between the amount actually spent and the amount to be spent must be remitted to Licensor for use in Licensor's advertising and promotion pool within thirty (30) days after such statement is due. -14- <PAGE> 3. ADDITIONAL COVENANTS OF THE PARTIES. ----------------------------------- a. Reservation of Rights: All rights not expressly and specifically granted herein to Licensee are reserved by Licensor. b. Rights of Licensor: Without limiting the generality of Paragraph 3.a. hereof, nothing herein contained shall be construed as prohibiting Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates from: (i) purchasing any of the Products from Licensee and offering any such Products for sale and selling same to consumers at any nightclub, restaurant, cabaret, resort, hotel or casino operated or franchised by Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates or through Licensor's direct mail fulfillment programs. Licensee shall have the option to fill all such orders at such prices as given to other customers ordering the same quantities of similar merchandise. Licensee shall have thirty (30) days from the date it receives such orders within which to notify Licensor of the exercise of Licensee's option. In the event Licensee does not exercise such option or fails to notify Licensor of the exercise of such option within the thirty (30) day time limit, anything in this Paragraph 3.b. or elsewhere in this agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates shall be allowed to purchase such Products from other manufacturing sources without liability to Licensee and sell such Products as indicated in this Paragraph 3.b. (ii) In the event of any such sale of Products by Licensee to Licensor, Licensee shall ship or deliver such Products either directly to Licensor or, as Licensor may direct, to any other business concern or person. Such sales of Products by Licensee to Licensor shall be, at Licensor's option, at such prices less the applicable Earned Royalty. If Licensor elects to have such sales made less the applicable Earned Royalty, Licensee will not have to pay additional royalties on such sales and will not be required to include such sales in the statements required under Paragraph 2.d.(i) hereof. Licensee may, however, include such sales in the computation of net sales under Paragraph l.c. hereof. Licensee shall bill Licensor in accordance with Licensee's normal billing procedure for any such Products shipped or delivered. -15- <PAGE> c. Rights of Licensee: Except as provided in Paragraphs 2.a.(iii) and 3.b.(i) hereof, Licensee enjoys the full exclusive License granted herein and Licensor agrees not to import or authorize any third (3rd) party to import into the Territory the Products from any place outside of the Territory. 4. TITLE AND PROTECTION. --------------------- a. Indemnification by Licensor: Licensor represents and warrants that: it is the owner of the Trademarks; the Trademarks are valid; and the Trademarks are, to the best of its knowledge, free from any claim by third parties that would interfere with the rights granted to Licensee under this agreement. Licensor shall indemnify, defend and hold Licensee, its agents, officers, directors and employees harmless against any claims or suits, provided prompt notice of which is given Licensor by Licensee, arising solely and directly out of the authorized use of the Trademarks on the Products by Licensee in the Territory, but in no event shall such indemnification include consequential damages. Licensor shall have the option to settle or to undertake and conduct the defense of any such claim or suit; but Licensee shall, upon notice from Licensor and pursuant to Licensor's instructions, handle, undertake and conduct the defense of any such suit at Licensor's expense. If Licensor does not so notify Licensee, Licensee may through counsel of its own choice and at its own expense participate in any such litigation, but in such event Licensor shall have sole and exclusive control over such defense and Licensor's decisions shall govern and control. Licensee expressly covenants that no compromise or settlement of any claim or suit, or any preliminary negotiations with respect to any compromise or settlement, shall be made or entered into without the prior written approval of Licensor. b. Enforcement: Licensee shall promptly notify Licensor in writing of any actual, suspected or apparent infringement or imitation of the Trademarks on products similar or identical to the Products that may come to the attention of Licensee. Licensor shall take that action in regard to such infringement or imitation as Licensor, in its sole judgment, deems to be reasonable. Licensor shall, in its sole and absolute discretion, decide whether to undertake or conduct any suit or assert any claim with respect to such infringement or imitation; but Licensee shall, upon notice from Licensor and pursuant to Licensor's instructions, vigorously handle, undertake and conduct any such suit or assert any such claim at Licensor's expense in the name of Licensor, or Licensee or in both names as Licensor may direct. Licensee expressly covenants that no compromise or settlement of any such suit or claim, or any preliminary -16- <PAGE> negotiations with respect to any compromise or settlement, shall be made or entered into without the prior written approval of Licensor. Licensee may share in any damage recovery obtained by Licensor as a result of any such suit or claim only if Licensee notified Licensor upon the initiation of such suit or claim that Licensee desires to participate financially in such suit or claim and only in an amount that shall bear the same ratio to the damage recovery as the amount of Licensee's financial participation bears to the total costs and expenses incurred by Licensor in obtaining such damage recovery. In no event shall Licensor be responsible to Licensee for any consequential damages that may result from such infringement or imitation. 5. RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE PARTIES. --------------------------------- a. No Joint Venture: Nothing herein contained shall be construed to place the parties in the relationship of partners or joint venturers, and Licensee shall have no power to obligate or bind Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates in any manner whatsoever. b. Assignment: ----------- (i) Licensor, in entering into this agreement, is relying entirely upon the skills, reputation and personnel, including the officers, directors and shareholders, of Licensee. This agreement and all rights and duties hereunder are personal to Licensee and shall not, without the prior consent of Licensor (which may be given or withheld in the sole discretion of Licensor), be sold, transferred, leased, assigned, mortgaged or otherwise encumbered by Licensee or by operation of law. Any attempt to sell, transfer, lease, assign, mortgage or otherwise encumber this agreement, or any of the rights and duties hereunder, or any change in the principal officers, principal directors or shareholders of Licensee or an entity having a financial interest in Licensee (other than non-controlling shareholders of a corporation whose shares are freely traded on a nationally recognized stock exchange), without the prior written consent of Licensor shall constitute a material violation of and an incurable default under this agreement. The consent of Licensor to any one assignment, transfer, sublicense or subcontract shall not be deemed to be consent to any subsequent assignment, transfer, sublicense or subcontract. (ii) Licensor may assign this agreement to any of its subsidiaries or affiliates or to any entity that succeeds to the interest of Licensor in the Trademarks without the consent of Licensee and shall have the right -17- <PAGE> to nominate any other person, company or corporation to receive royalty income or to undertake the obligations of Licensor under the terms of this agreement whether or not this agreement is so assigned. 6. SUBLICENSING. Licensee may not, without the prior written approval of Licensor, whose approval may be withheld without providing any reasons and whose discretion shall be final and absolute, enter into sublicense or subcontract agreements, with respect to the manufacture, sale and distribution of the Products in the Territory. 7. DEFAULTS AND RIGHTS OF TERMINATION. a. Defaults and Riqht to Cure: If Licensee violates any of its obligations or warranties under the terms of this agreement and fails to remedy such violations within fifteen (15) days after receipt of notice from Licensor of such violations, Licensor shall have the right and option, but not the duty, to terminate this License upon ten (10) days' prior written notice to Licensee. The termination of this License shall be without prejudice to any rights that Licensor may otherwise have against Licensee under this agreement or under law. b. Bankruptcy or Assiqnment for Creditors, Business Discontinuance: If Licensee files a petition in bankruptcy or is adjudicated a bankrupt, or if a petition in bankruptcy is filed against Licensee, or if Licensee shall become insolvent or shall make or agree to make an assignment for the benefit of creditors or an arrangement pursuant to any bankruptcy law, or if Licensee discontinues business, or if a receiver shall be appointed for Licensee, the License shall automatically terminate forthwith without the necessity of any notice whatsoever. If the License is so terminated, Licensee or its receivers, representatives, trustees, agents, administrators, successors or assigns shall have no right to sell, exploit or in any way deal with any Products, Wrapping Materials or Related Materials, except with and under the special written consent and instructions of Licensor that they shall be obligated to follow. c. Loss of Trademark Riqhts: If Licensee's right to use the Trademarks is adjudged illegal or invalid, and such adjudication has become final and non-appealable, or if a settlement agreement is entered into that prohibits Licensee's right to use the Trademarks, this License shall automatically terminate as of the date of such final and non-appealable adjudication or the entry of such settlement agreement without the necessity of any notice whatsoever. Licensee shall have no claim of any nature against Licensor for the loss of the right to use the Trademarks. -18- <PAGE> d. Impossible Performance: Licensee and Licensor shall be released from their respective obligations under this agreement and the License shall terminate, if governmental regulations or other causes arising out of a state of national emergency or war, or any other similar cause beyond the control of the parties hereto, shall render performance impossible. Either party shall so inform the other in writing of any such cause and of its desire to be released, and immediately thereafter the License shall terminate and all royalties on sales of the Products theretofore made shall become immediately due and payable. 8. TERMINATION OR EXPIRATION. ------------------------- a. Effect of Termination or Expiration: Upon and after the expiration or termination of the License, all rights granted to Licensee under this agreement shall forthwith revert to Licensor. Licensee will refrain from any further use of the Trademarks or any further reference to anything, including but not limited to words, devices, designs and symbols, similar to the Trademarks or in any way associated with Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates, in connection with the conduct of Licensee's business, except with the written consent of Licensor and except as expressly provided in this Paragraph 8. b. Reserved Riqhts: The expiration or termination of this License under any of the terms of this License shall not relieve Licensor or Licensee, respectively, of any obligations incurred prior or subsequent to such expiration or termination; nor shall expiration or termination impair or prejudice any of the rights of Licensor or Licensee, respectively, accruing prior or subsequent thereto. Except as provided in Paragraph 8.g. hereof, upon termination, the Guaranteed Royalty for the then current License Year shall be prorated based on the ratio that the number of days in such License Year prior to termination bears to three hundred sixty-five (365). Earned Royalties due for such License Year shall be the excess of Earned Royalty over such prorated Guaranteed Royalty. Any overpayment or underpayment of Guaranteed or Earned Royalties shall be adjusted by the parties in accordance with Paragraph 2.d.(i) hereof. c. Inventory: Within ninety (90) days prior to the expiration of the License, or in the event of its termination, within ten (10) days after (i) receipt of notice of termination or (ii) the happening of any event that terminates the License where no such notice is required, Licensee shall furnish to Licensor a complete and accurate statement showing the number and description of Products in process and on hand. Licensor or its authorized agents shall have the right to conduct a physical inspection and take -19- <PAGE> inventory to ascertain or verify such inventory and statement, and any refusal by Licensee to submit to such physical inventory by Licensor or its authorized agents shall forfeit Licensee's right to complete any work in process and to dispose of all such inventory; Licensor retaining all other legal and equitable rights it may have in the circumstances, which rights are hereby reserved. d. Continued Sales After Termination or Expiration: Upon the expiration of the term of this License or if this License is terminated pursuant to any paragraph of this agreement except paragraphs 2.i., 2.k.(iii) and 7.b. hereof, and except as provided in Paragraph 8.c. above or expires, Licensee may for a period of ninety (90) days after expiration of the term of this License or notice of termination dispose of, through Licensee's existing, recognized network of distributors, Products, the samples for which have previously been approved as provided under this agreement and that are in process or on hand at the date of expiration of the term of this License or the time such notice of termination is received; but in such event Licensee shall pay royalties and furnish statements with respect to said period in accordance with the terms of this agreement as though the License were still in effect; except that if this License is terminated for failure of Licensee to pay those royalties required under the terms of this agreement, Licensor shall be entitled to receive and Licensee shall pay to Licensor, in addition to Earned Royalties payable on such sale, all amounts received by Licensee for the sale of such Products until all past due amounts, including interest thereon, have been paid. e. Equitable Relief: Subject to Paragraph 8.d. above, Licensee hereby acknowledges that its failure to cease the manufacture, sale or distribution of the Products, Wrapping Materials and Related Materials upon the termination or expiration of this agreement, will result in damage to Licensor and to the rights of any subsequent licensee for which there is no adequate remedy at law. Accordingly, in the event of such failure, Licensor shall be entitled to equitable relief by way of temporary and permanent injunction and such other relief as any court of competent jurisdiction may deem just and proper. In this regard Licensee hereby consents to the judgment of temporary and permanent injunction in favor of Licensor in order to give effect to this Paragraph 8.e. f. Continuity of Sales: In order to enable Licensor to maintain continuity of sales of the Products upon expiration or termination of this agreement, Licensor shall have the right, notwithstanding anything to the contrary contained in Paragraph l.a. hereof, to authorize another person or firm -20- <PAGE> to manufacture, to show, and to solicit and receive orders for, the Products for a time three (3) months preceding the expiration of this agreement, or from the time that notice is given of termination of this agreement, whichever is sooner. Such person or firm shall not, however, be authorized to ship to its customers any of the Products so manufactured and shown until after this agreement has expired or has been terminated. g. Guaranteed Royalties: Anything in this agreement to the contrary notwithstanding, if Licensor terminates this agreement as a result of default by Licensee, Licensee shall immediately pay to Licensor as liquidated damages all outstanding Guaranteed Royalties required to be paid during the "Full Term" (as hereinafter defined) of this agreement in addition to any Earned Royalties that may be due through the effective date of termination. As used in this Paragraph 8.g., "Full Term" shall mean each and every License Year of the initial term and any renewal term that may be in effect at the time of such termination as if this agreement had not been terminated as contemplated under this Paragraph 8.g. 9.

If any provision or any application of any provision hereof is adjudged illegal, unenforceable or invalid and such adjudication has become final and non-appealable, such provision or application shall be deemed deleted without affecting the remainder of this agreement unless such deletion shall have a material adverse effect upon the rights or obligations of either party hereto and notice of such effect is given as provided in the -21- <PAGE> following sentence. Either party may notify the other within forty-five (45) days after such adjudication has become final and non-appealable that in its opinion such deletion would have a material adverse effect upon the notifying party and that the License is terminated by reason thereof; but the existence of such effect and the termination of the License shall be subject to contest by the party receiving such notice if it notifies the other party, within forty- five (45) days after service of the notice of termination upon it, of its desire so to contest the matter and thereafter proceeds promptly with a proceeding so to contest the matter. During such time as the matter is being contested, this agreement shall remain in full force and effect. 11. CONSENTS AND APPROVALS.

There are no representations, promises, warranties, covenants or undertakings other than those contained in this agreement. The failure of either party hereto to enforce, or the delay by either party in enforcing, any of its rights under this agreement shall not be deemed as constituting a waiver or a modification thereof and either party may, within the time provided by applicable law, commence appropriate proceedings to enforce any or all of such rights. No person, firm, group or corporation other than Licensee, Licensor, its subsidiaries and affiliates shall be deemed to have acquired any rights by reason of anything contained in this agreement. -22- <PAGE> IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this instrument to be duly executed as of the day and year first above written.
