Intentionally Omitted. 1.2. Demand Registration. (a) Request for Registration. If the Company shall receive from any Initiating Holder a written request that the Company effect any registration, qualification or compliance with respect to Registrable Securities (a "Demand"), the Company will: (i) promptly give written notice ("Company Notice") of the proposed registration, qualification or compliance to all other Holders; and 4 <PAGE> (ii) as soon as practicable, use its best efforts to effect all such registrations, qualifications and compliances (including, without limitation, the execution of an undertaking to file post-effective amendments, appropriate qualifications under applicable "blue sky" or other state securities laws and appropriate compliance with exemptive regulations promulgated under the Securities Act and any other governmental requirements or regulations) as may be so requested and as would permit or facilitate the public sale and distribution of all or such portion of such Initiating Holder's or Initiating Holders' Registrable Securities as are specified in such Demand, together with all or such portion of the Registrable Securities of any Holder or Holders joining in such Demand as are specified in a written request given within 20 days after receipt of the Company Notice; provided, however, that the Company shall not be obligated to take any action to effect any such registration, qualification or compliance pursuant to this Section 1.2: (A) at any time prior to (i) the effective date of the registration statement in respect of the first underwritten registered public offering by the Company next following the date of this Agreement or (ii) one year after the date of this Agreement, whichever first occurs; (B) during the period commencing on the 10th day next preceding the effective date of a registration statement filed with SEC pursuant to this Section 1.2 and ending on the 180th day next following such effective date; (C) during the period commencing on the 60th day next preceding the Company's good faith estimate of the date of filing of, and ending on the 60th day next following the effective date of, a Company registration pursuant to Section 1.3 hereof, provided the Company is actively employing in good faith all reasonable efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective; (D) in any particular jurisdiction in which the Company would be required to qualify to do business or become subject to taxation or general service of process, unless the Company already is so subject to service in such jurisdiction; or (E) after the Company has effected four (4) such registrations pursuant to this Section 1.2(a) and such registrations have been declared or ordered effective by the SEC. Subject to the foregoing clauses (A) through (E), the Company shall file a registration statement covering the Registrable Securities so requested to be registered as soon as practicable, but in no event later than 60 days after receipt of the request(s) of the Initiating Holder(s) therefor; provided, however, that if the Company shall furnish to such holders a certificate signed by its Chief Executive Officer or President stating that in the good faith judgment of the Board of Directors it would be detrimental to the Company and its stockholders for such registration statement to be filed at or about the date requested by the Initiating Holders and it is therefore necessary or commercially desirable to defer the filing of such registration statement, the Company shall have an additional period of not more than 120 days after the 5 <PAGE> expiration of the initial 60-day period within which to file such registration statement; provided, however, that the Company shall not be entitled to utilize this right more than once in any 12-month period. (b) Underwriting. If the Holders intend to distribute the Registrable Securities covered by their request by means of an underwritten offering, they shall so advise the Company as part of their request made pursuant to this Section 1.2 and the Company shall include such information in the Company Notice. In such case, the underwriter shall be selected by the Company and shall be reasonably acceptable to a majority-in-interest of the Initiating Holders. The right of any Holder to registration pursuant to this Section 1.2 shall be conditioned upon such Holder's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein. The Company shall (together with all Holders proposing to distribute their securities by means of such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter or underwriters. Notwithstanding any other provision of this Section 1.2, if the "Managing Underwriter" (as such term is used in Rule 12b-2 under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the "Exchange Act")) advises the Initiating Holders in writing that marketing factors require a limitation of the number of shares to be offered or sold, the Initiating Holders shall so advise all Holders, and the number of shares of Registrable Securities that may be included in the underwritten registration shall be allocated among all Holders thereof in the proportion, as nearly as practicable, that the respective amounts of Registrable Securities held by each such Holder bears to the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities held by all such Holders. If any Holder of Registrable Securities disapproves of the terms of the underwriting, such Holder may elect to withdraw its Registrable Securities therefrom by written notice to the Company, the underwriter and the Initiating Holders. Any Registrable Securities which are excluded from the underwriting by reason of the Managing Underwriter's marketing limitation or withdrawn from such underwriting forthwith shall be withdrawn from such registration. (c) Company Shares. If the Managing Underwriter has not limited the number of Registrable Securities to be underwritten, the Company may include therein securities for its own account or for the account of others if the Managing Underwriter so agrees and if the number of Registrable Securities which would otherwise have been included in such registration and underwriting will not thereby be limited. 1.3. "Piggyback" Registration. (a) Registration. If at any time or from time to time, the Company shall determine to register shares of Common Stock for its own account or the account of any of its stockholders, other than a registration on Form S-1 or S-8 relating solely to employee stock option or purchase plans, or a registration on Form S-4, or a registration on any other form (other than Form S-1, S-2, S-3, SB-1 or SB-2, or their successor forms) or any successor to such forms, which does not include substantially the same information as would be required to be included in a registration statement covering the sale of Registrable Securities, the Company will: (i) promptly give to each Holder written notice thereof; and 6 <PAGE> (ii) include in such registration, and in any underwriting involved therein, all the Registrable Securities specified in a written request or requests, made within 20 days after receipt of such written notice from the Company, by any Holder, except as set forth in Section 1.3(b) below. (b) Underwriting. If the registration as to which the Company gives notice is in respect of a registered underwritten public offering the Company shall so advise the Holders as a part of the written notice given pursuant to Section 1.3(a)(i). In such event the right of any Holder to registration pursuant to this Section 1.3 shall be conditioned upon such Holder's participation in such underwriting and the inclusion of such Holder's Registrable Securities in the underwriting to the extent provided herein. All Holders proposing to distribute their securities through such underwriting shall (together with the Company and the other stockholders distributing their securities through such underwriting) enter into an underwriting agreement in customary form with the underwriter or underwriters selected for such underwriting by the Company. If the Managing Underwriter of an offering of securities effected pursuant to this Section 1.3 reasonably shall determine and advise the Company in writing that in its opinion the aggregate number of Registrable Securities requested to be included in the Company's registration statement creates a substantial risk that the proceeds or the price per share that the Company (or in the case of a registration which does not include any securities being offered or sold for the Company's own account, the person(s) for whose account the registration statement is filed) would receive pursuant to the offering would be materially reduced or that the success of the offering otherwise would be materially adversely affected, then the number of Registrable Securities to be included in the Company's registration statement for the account of the Holders thereof shall be reduced pro rata among such Holders to the aggregate amount deemed appropriate by such Managing Underwriter; provided, however, if securities are being offered for the account of other persons or entities as well as the Company, then with respect to the Registrable Securities intended to be included for the account of the Holder thereof, the proportion by which the number of Registrable Securities intended to be included by such Holders is reduced shall not exceed the proportion by which the number of securities intended to be registered by such other persons or entities is reduced. If any Holder disapproves of the terms of the underwriting, he may elect to withdraw therefrom by written notice to the Company and the Managing Underwriter. Any Registrable Securities excluded or withdrawn from such underwriting forthwith shall be withdrawn from such registration. No Holder shall have any right to participate in, and Section 1.3(a) shall not apply to, the first registered public offering involving an underwriting consummated by the Company after the date of this Agreement (the "Follow-on Offering"); provided that each such Holder shall have a right to participate in the Follow-on Offering, irrespective of the date of consummation thereof, if the Follow-on Offering is not consummated within one year from the date hereof, subject, however, in any case to approval of such participation by the Managing Underwriter therefor. For any selling Holder which is a partnership or corporation, the partners, retired partners and stockholders of such Holder, or the estates and family members of any such partners and retired partners and any trusts for the benefit of any of the foregoing persons shall be deemed to be a single selling Holder such that any pro rata reduction with respect to such selling Holder shall be based upon the aggregate amount of Registrable Securities owned by all entities and individuals included in such selling Holder. 7 <PAGE> (c) Company shall have the right to withdraw any "piggyback" registration for any reason upon reasonable notice to each Holder. 1.4. Expenses of Registration. All Registration Expenses incurred in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance pursuant to this Section 1, Registration Rights shall be borne by the Company, except as follows: (a) The Company shall not be required to pay for expenses of any registration pursuant to Section 1.2 , the request for which has been subsequently withdrawn by the Initiating Holders, in which case such expenses shall be borne by the Holders requesting such withdrawal unless, at the time of such withdrawal, the Holders have learned of a material adverse change in the condition, business or prospects of the Company from that known by the Initiating Holders at the time of their request. (b) The Company shall not be required to pay underwriters' fees, discounts or commissions relating to Registrable Securities or any broker or dealer concessions or allowances relating to the distribution thereof. 1.5. Registration Procedures. In the case of each registration, qualification or compliance effected by the Company pursuant to this Agreement, the Company will keep each Holder participating therein advised in writing as to the initiation of each registration, qualification and compliance and as to the completion thereof. Except as otherwise provided in Section 1.4, at its expense the Company will: (a) Prepare and file with the SEC a registration statement with respect to such Registrable Securities and use its best efforts to cause such registration statement to become effective and, upon the request of the Holders of a majority of the Registrable Securities registered thereunder, keep such registration statement effective for up to 180 days. (b) Prepare and file with the SEC such amendments and supplements to such registration statement and the prospectus used in connection with such registration statement as may be necessary to comply with the provisions of the Securities Act with respect to the disposition of all securities covered by such registration statement. (c) Furnish to the Holders such numbers of copies of a prospectus, including a preliminary prospectus, in conformity with the requirements of the Securities Act, and such other documents as they may reasonably request in order to facilitate the disposition of Registrable Securities owned by them. (d) Use its best efforts to register and qualify the securities covered by such registration statement under such other securities or "blue sky" laws of such jurisdictions as shall be reasonably requested by the Holders, provided that the Company shall not be required in connection therewith or as a condition thereto to qualify to do business or, except as required under the Securities Act, to file a general consent to service of process in any such states or jurisdictions. 8 <PAGE> (e) Cause all such Registrable Securities registered pursuant hereunder to be listed on each securities exchange or U.S. automated inter-dealer quotation system of a registered national securities association on which similar securities issued by the Company are then listed. 1.6. Indemnification. (a) The Company will indemnify and hold harmless each Holder of Registrable Securities and each of its officers, directors and partners, and each person controlling such Holder, with respect to which such registration, qualification or compliance has been effected pursuant to this Agreement, and each underwriter, if any, and each person who controls any underwriter of the Registrable Securities held by or issuable to such Holder, against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and liabilities (or actions in respect thereto) arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any prospectus or registration statement (including any supplement or amendment thereto), or based on any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in the case of any prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, or any violation or alleged violation by the Company of the Securities Act, the Exchange Act and any state securities law or any rule or regulation promulgated under the Securities Act, the Exchange Act or any state securities law and relating to action or inaction legally required of the Company in connection with any such registration, qualification or compliance, and will reimburse each such Holder, each of its officers, directors and partners, and each person controlling such Holder, each such underwriter and each person who controls any such underwriter, within a reasonable amount of time after incurred (not to exceed 45 days) for any reasonable legal and any other expenses incurred by them in connection with investigating, defending or settling any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 1.6(a) shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such claim, loss, damage, liability, or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Company (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld); and provided further, that the Company will not be liable in any such case to the extent that any such claim, loss, damage or liability arises out of or is based on any untrue statement or omission based upon written information furnished to the Company by an instrument duly executed by such Holder, controlling person or underwriter specifically for use therein or upon such Holders failure to deliver a copy of a current prospectus (compliant with Section 10 of the Securities Act) or any amendment or supplement thereto (which does not contain any aforesaid misrepresentation or omissions) if the Company theretofore has furnished such Holder with a sufficient number of the copies of the same for delivery by the Holder in connection with the offer and sale of Registrable Securities. (b) Each Holder will, if Registrable Securities held by or issuable to such Holder are included in the securities as to which such registration, qualification or compliance is being effected pursuant to this Agreement, indemnify and hold harmless the Company, each of its directors and officers, each underwriter, if any, of the Company's securities covered by such a registration statement, each person who controls the Company within the meaning of the Securities Act, and each other such Holder, each of its officers, directors and 9 <PAGE> partners and each person controlling such Holder, against all claims, losses, expenses, damages and liabilities (or actions in respect thereof) arising out of or based on any untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) of a material fact contained in any such registration statement or prospectus (including any supplement or amendment thereto) or any omission (or alleged omission) to state therein a material fact required to be stated therein or necessary to make the statements therein (in case of any prospectus, in light of the circumstances under which they were made) not misleading, and will reimburse the Company, such Holders, such directors, officers, partners, persons or underwriters for any reasonable legal or any other expenses incurred in connection with investigating, defending or settling any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action, in each case to the extent, but only to the extent, that such untrue statement (or alleged untrue statement) or omission (or alleged omission) is made in such registration statement or prospectus (including any supplement or amendment thereto) in reliance upon and in conformity with written information furnished to the Company by the Holder in an instrument duly executed by such Holder specifically for use therein; provided, however, that the indemnity agreement contained in this Section 1.6(b) shall not apply to amounts paid in settlement of any such claim, loss, damage, liability or action if such settlement is effected without the consent of the Holder (which consent shall not be unreasonably withheld); and provided further, that the total amount for which any Holder shall be liable under this Section 1.6(b) shall not in any event exceed the aggregate proceeds received by such Holder from the sale of Registrable Securities held by such Holder in connection with the offering that gave rise to this indemnification obligation. (c) Each party entitled to indemnification under this Section 1.6 (the "Indemnified Party") shall give notice to the party required to provide indemnification (the "Indemnifying Party") promptly after such Indemnified Party has actual knowledge of any claim as to which indemnity may be sought, and shall permit the Indemnifying Party to assume the defense of any such claim or any litigation resulting therefrom; provided that counsel for the Indemnifying Party, who shall conduct the defense of such claim or litigation, shall be approved by the Indemnified Party (whose approval shall not be unreasonably withheld), and the Indemnified Party may participate in such defense at such party's expense; and provided further, that the failure of any Indemnified Party to give notice as provided herein shall not relieve the Indemnifying Party of its obligations hereunder, unless such failure resulted in material prejudice to the Indemnifying Party; and provided further, that an Indemnified Party (together with all other Indemnified Parties which may be represented without conflict by one counsel) shall have the right to retain one separate counsel (or firm of counsel), with the fees and expenses to be paid by the Indemnifying Party, if representation of such Indemnified Party by the counsel retained by the Indemnifying Party would be inappropriate due to actual or potential differing interests between such Indemnified Party and any other party represented by such counsel in such proceeding. No Indemnifying Party, in the defense of any such claim or litigation shall, except with the consent of each Indemnified Party, consent to entry of any judgment or enter into any settlement which does not include as an unconditional term thereof the giving by the claimant or plaintiff to such Indemnified Party of a release from all liability in respect to such claim or litigation. (d) If recovery is not available under the foregoing indemnification provisions for any reason or reasons other than as specified therein, any person who otherwise 10 <PAGE> would be entitled to indemnification by the terms thereof nevertheless shall be entitled to contribution with respect to any losses with respect to which such person would be entitled to such indemnification but for such reason or reasons. In determining the amount of contribution to which the respective persons are entitled, there shall be considered the persons' relative knowledge and access to information concerning the matter with respect to which the claim was asserted, the opportunity to correct and prevent any statement or omission, and other equitable considerations appropriate under the circumstances. It is hereby agreed that it would not necessarily be equitable if the amount of such contribution were determined by pro rata or per capita allocation. No person guilty of fraudulent misrepresentation (within the meaning of Section 11(f) of the Securities Act) shall be entitled to contribution from any person who was found guilty of such fraudulent misrepresentation. Notwithstanding the foregoing, no Holder of Registrable Securities shall be required to make a contribution in excess of the aggregate proceeds received by such Holder from the sale of Registrable Securities held by such Holder in connection with the offering that gave rise to the contribution obligation. (e) The obligations of the Company and Holders under this Section 1.6 shall survive the completion of any offering of Registrable Securities in a registration statement under this Section 1, and otherwise. 1.7. Information by Holder. Any Holder or Holders of Registrable Securities included in any registration shall promptly furnish to the Company such information regarding such Holder or Holders and the distribution proposed by such Holder or Holders as the Company may request in writing and as shall be required in connection with any registration, qualification or compliance referred to herein. 1.8. Rule 144 Reporting. From and after such time as the Holders are eligible under Rule 144 to effect resales of Registrable Securities held by them, the Company hereby agrees to file with the SEC all periodic and other reports required to be so filed by it under the Securities Act and the Exchange Act and the rules and regulations thereunder (or, if the Company is not then required to file such reports, it shall, as promptly as reasonably practicable after the written request of any Holder of Registrable Securities therefore, make publicly available the requisite "Rule 15c2-11 information" in respect of the Company so long as and solely to the extent necessary to permit resales of Registrable Securities pursuant to Rule 144), and it shall take such further reasonable action, to the extent required from time to time, to enable such Holder to resell Registrable Securities without registration under the Securities Act. Upon the reasonable request of any Holder of Registrable Securities, the Company shall as promptly as reasonably practicable deliver to such Holder a written statement as to whether it has complied with the foregoing information and filing requirements. 1.9. "Market Stand-Off" Agreement. Each Holder hereby agrees that, during the period (not to exceed 180 days with respect to the Follow-on Offering, provided the Follow-on Offering is consummated within one year from the date hereof, and 90 days with respect to every other registration) specified by the Company and an underwriter of Common Stock or other securities of the Company following the effective date of a registration statement of the Company filed under the Securities Act, it shall not, to the extent requested by the Company and such underwriter, directly or indirectly sell, offer to sell, contract to sell (including, without 11 <PAGE> limitation, any short sale), grant any option to purchase, pledge or otherwise transfer or dispose of (other than to donees who agree to be similarly bound) any securities of the Company held by it at any time during such period except securities included in such registration; provided, however, that such agreement shall not be required unless all officers and key employees of the Company enter into similar agreements. In order to enforce the foregoing covenant, the Company may impose stop-transfer instructions with respect to any securities of the Company held by any Holder (and the shares of securities of every other person subject to the foregoing restriction) until the end of such period. 2. Right of First Refusal. 2.1. Restrictions on Transfer. No Holder may effect any sale, exchange, transfer, assignment, gift, pledge, encumbrance, hypothecation or alienation of any shares of any series or class of capital stock of the Company (the "Stock") or any direct or indirect interest in or right to such shares, now held by or hereafter acquired by such stockholder, whether voluntarily or involuntarily or by operation of law (hereinafter collectively referred to as a "Transfer"), for a period of one year after the date hereof, except to a Permitted Transferee. 2.2. Right of First Refusal. Until the seventh anniversary of the date hereof, if a Holder of Stock (an "Offering Stockholder") desires to Transfer any or all of the shares of Stock then owned by such Offering Stockholder (the "Transfer Stock") to any person other than a Permitted Transferee of such Holder or in any manner other than in a bona fide public distribution pursuant to an effective registration statement under the Securities Act, such Offering Stockholder shall give written notice (the "Offer Notice") to the Company of the terms and conditions of the proposed sale, and the Company shall have the right and option (but not the obligation) to purchase the Transfer Stock at the price and upon the other terms and conditions set forth in the Offer Notice. The right of first refusal provided for herein shall be exercisable by the Company upon delivery of written notice (the "Purchase Notice") to the Offering Stockholder not more than 10 business days after receipt by the Company of the Offer Notice (the "Exercise Period"). If the Company exercises its right of first refusal hereunder, consummation of the purchase of the Transfer Stock pursuant thereto shall occur on such date as the Company and the Offering Stockholder mutually shall agree, but in no event later than 10 business days next following the date on which the Company shall have delivered the Purchase Notice to the Offering Stockholder; subject to extension of such 10-day period as necessary to comply with applicable securities and other laws and regulations. Upon exercise of the foregoing right of first refusal, the Company and the Offering Stockholder shall be contractually obligated to consummate the purchase contemplated thereby and shall use their reasonable best efforts to obtain all requisite consents and approvals in connection therewith. If the Company declines to purchase the Transfer Stock as provided in this Section 2.2, the Offering Stockholder thereafter shall have the right for a period of 120 days next following the expiration of the Exercise Period (the "Open Sale Period") to transfer all or any portion of the Transfer Stock subject to the Transfer Offer, free and clear of the restrictions and limitations of this Section 2.2, in one or a series of bona fide transactions; provided, however, that such transfer may only be effected pursuant to general terms and conditions (including price) not more beneficial to the Offering 12 <PAGE> Stockholder than those contained in the Offer Notice. If any Transfer Stock is not sold or transferred pursuant to the provisions of this Section 2.2 prior to the expiration of the Open Sale Period, such Transfer Stock again shall become subject to the provisions and restrictions hereof. The Company may assign its rights under this Section 2.2 to Approved Transferees who shall be entitled to deliver the Purchase Notice and purchase the Transfer Stock in accordance with the identical terms of this Section 2.2. Notwithstanding any of the foregoing, the provisions of this Section 2.2 no longer shall be of any force or effect (a) at such time as Mitchell Rubenstein and Laurie S. Silvers shall have sold 60% or more of the Common Stock beneficially owned by them on the date hereof; provided, however, that Transfers of Common Stock by them to family members, to charitable organizations or to trusts for estate planning purposes shall not constitute Transfers for purposes of this paragraph; or (b) if at any time after the second anniversary of this agreement, 15% or less of the Common Stock is beneficially owned by CBS and its Permitted Transferees. The terms of clause (b) in the preceding sentence shall not be applicable if CBS and its Permitted Transferees beneficially own 15% or less of the Common Stock as a result of Transfers by CBS or its Permitted Transferees of at least 50% of the Common Stock acquired by CBS or its assignees pursuant to the Stock Purchase Agreement and the Warrant. 2.3. Permitted Transferees. "Permitted Transferee" shall mean any subsidiary of CBS that owns interests in multiple Internet businesses and which agrees to be bound by the terms and subject to the conditions of this Agreement. All Stock transferred to a Permitted Transferee shall continue to constitute and remain "Stock" hereunder and each such transferee shall be treated as a Holder for all purposes of this Agreement. The prohibitions and restrictions contained in Section 2.1 and 2.2 hereof shall not apply to transfer to any Permitted Transferees. Notwithstanding the foregoing, any attempt by CBS to transfer Stock in violation of this Section 2, whether voluntary or involuntary, shall be null and void, and the Company neither shall effect such a transfer nor treat any purported transferee as a Holder in respect of any shares intended to be transferred. 2.4. Preemptive Rights.
