2.SCOPE AND BACKGROUND
Under this Agreement Customer can: (i) acquire licenses for a specific number of Licensed Materials and related Documentation on either a Subscription or 99-year License basis, and (ii) obtain Maintenance Services for the Licensed Materials pursuant to the provisions of this Agreement. With the exception of 99-year licenses, all Software licensed on a Subscription basis, may be Used on a wide area network (“WAN”) basis as described in the applicable Product Quotation. For any Software acquired
by Customer through an authorized Cadence reseller the following provisions of this Agreement shall not apply: 4, 6, 13.3(b) and 13.3(c). 99-year Licenses must be Used within five (5) miles of the Designated Equipment. While Cadence shall remain the “licensor” for purposes of the grant of the licenses and other rights hereunder, and Customer shall remain the “licensee” for purposes of the obligations contained herein, Customer shall contract directly with the authorized Cadence reseller for the purchase of License Keys and any Maintenance Services on Software provided by such authorized Cadence reseller.
(a)Grant: Subject to Customer’s timely payment of the Fees as set forth in Section 4 and subject to the limitations set forth in Sections 3(b) and 3(c), Cadence, either directly or by and through one of its affiliates, hereby grants Customer, for the Term of Use as specified in each Product Quotation, a non-transferable, non- exclusive, license to: (i) Use the quantity of Licensed Materials identified in the applicable Product Quotation on the Designated Equipment as established by the number of License Keys issued for the Licensed Materials; and (ii) Use the Documentation as is reasonably necessary for Customer’s licensed Use of the Licensed Materials. All rights not expressly granted to Customer pursuant to this Agreement are reserved by Cadence. Cadence may also agree to provide Customer with an evaluation license for Licensed Materials under this Agreement. Such evaluation licenses shall be evidenced by a Product Quotation designating such Licensed Materials as provided for evaluation purposes only. In such event Section 9 (Technical Support) and Section 10 (Proprietary Rights Indemnity) of this Agreement shall not apply. Unless specifically granted in such Product Quotation, such evaluation licenses may not be accessed through WAN and may not be Used by subcontractors.
(b)Limitations:All rights, title and interest in the Licensed Materials shall remain the exclusive property of Cadence and/or its licensors. The Licensed Materials are the confidential and proprietary property of Cadence or third parties from whom Cadence has obtained the appropriate rights. Customer shall not Use or copy the Licensed Materials except as expressly permitted herein. Customer may only Use those Licensed Materials specified in the applicable Product Quotation. Customer shall not modify, disassemble, decompile or reverse translate or create derivative works from the Licensed Materials or otherwise attempt to derive the source code, or let any third party do so. No right or license is granted or implied under any of Cadence, or its licensors’, patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade names, service marks or other intellectual property rights to Use the Licensed Materials or to authorize others to Use the Licensed Materials beyond the rights and restrictions set forth in this Agreement. By way of example and not limitation, Customer shall not disclose to any third party any benchmarking of; (i) the Software or Design Elements or
(ii) the output of any Software or Design Elements (which
means any form of competitive analysis of the Licensed Materials versus competitive tool products), nor permit any third party to do so. Customer shall not remove or alter any of Cadence’s or its licensors’ restrictive or ownership legends appearing on or in the Licensed Materials and shall reproduce such legends on all copies permitted to be made. Customer may periodically Remix the Initial Configuration or the Then Current Configuration only if specified in the Product Quotation and subject to the limitations set forth in the Product Quotation. Upon request by Cadence, Customer shall execute a Certificate of Discontinued Use upon the completion of each Remix for those Licensed Materials that are exchanged or terminated in the Remix.
(c)Restrictions:Customer shall not let the Licensed Materials be accessed or used by third parties or anyone other than Customer’s employees whose duties require such access or use. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer’s authorized consultants and subcontractors (excluding any direct competitors of Cadence) may Use the Licensed Materials on the Designated Equipment at a Customer facility only, where such Use is incidental to their performing services on Customer’s behalf. Such Use by authorized consultants and subcontractors must be consistent with the license granted to Customer hereunder and Customer must first require such authorized consultants and subcontractors to sign written agreements obligating them to observe the same restrictions concerning the Licensed Materials as are contained in this Agreement. In connection with activities under this Agreement, Customer may provide to Cadence suggestions, descriptions, data feedback and other information, either orally or in writing (collectively, “Feedback”) concerning the Licensed Materials. Customer hereby grants to Cadence and its affiliates, a non- exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide right and license to make, use, sell, reproduce, modify, sublicense, disclose, distribute and otherwise exploit any such Feedback. In addition, Cadence shall be the sole owner of any modifications, additions or other changes made to the Licensed Materials based upon such Feedback. The Licensed Materials may contain certain software applications and portions of applications which are provided to Customer under terms and conditions which are different from this Agreement (such as open source or community source), or which require Cadence to provide Customer with certain notices and/or information (“Excluded Code”). Cadence will identify such Excluded Code in a text file or about box or in a file or files referenced thereby (and shall include any associated license agreement, notices and other related information therein), or the Excluded Code will contain or be accompanied by its own license agreement. Customer’s Use of the Excluded Code will be subject to the terms and conditions of such other license agreement solely to the extent such terms and conditions are inconsistent with the terms and conditions of this Agreement or are required by such other license agreement. By using or not uninstalling such Excluded Code after the initial installation of the
Excluded Code Customer acknowledges and agrees to all such license agreements, notices and information.

Customer shall promptly correct any deficiencies discovered by such audit including payment to Cadence of the amount of any shortfall in Fees uncovered by such audit plus interest at the rate set forth in Section 4(a) below. If the audit uncovers any shortfall in payment of more than five percent (5%) for any quarter, then Customer shall also promptly pay to Cadence the costs and expenses of such audit, including fees of auditors and other professionals incurred by Cadence in connection with such audit.
(a)Fees and Payment:Customer shall pay Cadence the license fees (“LicenseFees”) and maintenance services fees (“MaintenanceServicesFees”) (collectively, the “Fees”). Such Fees shall be remitted so that they are received by Cadence by the dates and in the amounts set forth in the Product Quotation and, except as expressly provided herein, are non-refundable. In addition, Customer’s obligation to remit License Fee payments to Cadence in accordance with the payment schedule set forth in the Product Quotation shall be absolute, unconditional, noncancellable and nonrefundable, and shall not be subject to any abatement, set-off, claim, counterclaim, adjustment, reduction, or defense for any reason, including, but not limited to, any claims that Cadence failed to perform under this Agreement or termination of this Agreement. Past due amounts shall be subject to a monthly service charge of one and one-half percent (1½%) per month of the unpaid balance or the maximum rate allowable by law. In addition to all other sums payable hereunder, Customer shall pay all reasonable out-of-pocket expenses incurred by Cadence, including fees and disbursements of counsel, in connection with collection and other enforcement proceedings resulting therefrom or in connection therewith.
(b)Taxes:All Fees are net.
