Prioritized Listings Syndication Agreement - LookSmart Ltd. and eLiberation Inc.
PRIORITIZED LISTINGS SYNDICATION AGREEMENT THIS PRIORITIZED LISTINGS SYNDICATION AGREEMENT (the "Agreement"), made as of October 12, 2001 (the "Effective Date"), is made by and between LookSmart, Ltd., a Delaware corporation ("LookSmart"), and ELiberation Inc., a California corporation ("ELiberation") (each, a "Party", or collectively referred to as the "Parties"). WHEREAS, ELiberation is the owner and provider of the cost-per-click search engine ePilot (the "ePilot Service"); WHEREAS, LookSmart is the owner of an Internet search and directory service which includes the ability to search the Internet for relevant content by typing a word or set of words into a search box (the "LookSmart Service"); WHEREAS, the Parties desire to offer LookSmart Service as an integrated component of the ePilot Service; NOW, THEREFORE, for good and valuable consideration, the sufficiency of which is hereby acknowledged, the parties agree as follows: 1. INTEGRATION OF LOOKSMART SERVICE INTO EPILOT SERVICE. 1.1. DEFINITIONS. "LookSmart Search Results" means a set of Prioritized Listings provided by LookSmart from its proprietary database in response to an Internet user's keyword search query on the EPilot Service. The LookSmart Search Results, when integrated into the EPilot Service, will appear on the EPilot Service search results. "ELiberation Affiliate" shall mean the web site operators who distribute the EPilot Service or refer Internet users to the EPilot Service. "ELiberation Affiliate Site" shall mean the default Internet home page or primary search functionality of ELiberation Affiliates. "ePilot Site" shall mean the default Internet home page that is accessed by ELiberation subscribers or other Internet users and is located at www.ePilot.com. "Destination Page" means the LookSmart customer's web page accessed by clicking on a Prioritized Listing. "Prioritized Listing" means a text-based site title, description (maximum 255 characters, including spaces) and URL hyperlink (with tracking code) which is drawn from the LookSmart database of Prioritized Listings in response to a keyword search query. 1 <PAGE> "Referral" occurs when a bona fide Internet user (which excludes a robot, spider, software, scraper or other mechanical, artificial or fraudulent means, or a person who is not seeking to use the Distribution Provider Service for a legitimate web search, e.g., has been paid or otherwise motivated to click) clicks through on a Listing and accesses a Destination Page. The Listings Provider will identify Referrals by means of a "come from tag" in the Redirect URL hyperlink from Listings. For the avoidance of doubt, no Referral will occur unless the Destination Page is fully served to the end-user's browser. 2. INTEGRATION. LookSmart will provide the LookSmart Search Results in response to a user's keyword search query via a text-based data feed from the LookSmart database. The web pages containing LookSmart Search Results will be served and hosted by ELiberation, provided that ELiberation shall serve the LookSmart Search Results in the order presented to ELiberation by LookSmart. The database and search algorithm (and any modifications thereto during the Term) used to generate the LookSmart Search Results are proprietary to LookSmart and shall remain entirely within LookSmart's control. All Prioritized Listings returned by LookSmart in response to a search query shall in all cases be included by ELiberation (a) in the order provided by LookSmart and (b) in order of prominence relative to other ELiberation results based on the price that LookSmart is paying ELiberation for such queries. If a user's search query does not result in any matches with search results from the LookSmart database, then no LookSmart Search Results will be displayed on the search results page. LookSmart retains the right to modify the appearance and content of the LookSmart Search Results, as well as the underlying database and search algorithm, so long as the modifications do not substantially change the location and layout described in this paragraph. ELiberation will complete integration and launch the Prioritized Listings no later than 14 days from the Effective Date of this Agreement, provided that ELiberation is given all necessary resources and assistance by LookSmart within 5 ays of such date. 3. FEES AND PAYMENT. LookSmart shall pay to ELiberation a specified amount per Referral on a monthly basis based on the volume of Referrals ELiberation generates, as follows: *** LookSmart will make such payments to ELiberation within 30 days after the end of calendar month. 4. RESPONSIBILITY FOR LOOKSMART SEARCH RESULTS. LookSmart will be solely responsible for the generation and collection of revenue from advertising or sponsorships on the LookSmart Search Results, and shall have sole responsibility for building the Prioritized Listings database and delivery of the LookSmart Search Results to ELiberation. LookSmart shall retain sole discretion as to the location, type and content of advertising served on the LookSmart Search Results. 5. REPORTING AND USER DATA. 5.1 MONTHLY TRAFFIC REPORTS. LookSmart shall provide to ELiberation monthly Referral summaries within 30 days following the end of each month detailing the number of Referrals and the revenue generated in the corresponding month ("Traffic Reports"). *** Portions of this page have been omitted pursuant to a request for confidential treatment and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 2 <PAGE> LookSmart's determination of the number of Referrals during any period shall be dispositive, unless there is a ten (10%) or greater discrepancy between the numbers reported by the parties, in which case the parties will promptly meet and work together in good faith to determine the cause of the discrepancy. Once a discrepancy is identified, the Parties will make any necessary adjustments at the time of the next payment. 5.2. BOOKS & RECORDS; AUDITING. During the Term of this Agreement and for a period of six months thereafter, the Parties will each maintain accurate and complete books and records, including copies of all customer and other correspondence, relating to such Party's performance of its obligations under this Agreement. Each Party will have the right, no more than once in any twelve (12) month period during the Term, to audit the other Party's books and records which are relevant to the performance of its obligations under this Agreement upon ten (10) days' prior written notice. Such audits will be performed by the auditing Party's representatives and will be conducted during normal business hours. Costs for such audits will be paid for by the auditing Party, unless the results of the audit show a shortfall in any payment owed or paid to ELiberation during the period covered by the audit exceeding ten percent (10%), in which case the reasonable costs for the audit will be paid by LookSmart. 5.3. TRAFFIC INCREASES; AFFILIATE DISTRIBUTION AND CLICK THROUGH RATE. ELiberation will provide LookSmart with 30 days prior written notice (or as soon as possible if implementation is completed in less than 30 days) before launching the ePilot Service with new affiliates or traffic sources that will, in ELiberation's reasonable opinion, increase the number of monthly Referrals by the greater of (i) 30% or more over then-current levels or (ii) increase the total monthly Referrals to over two million Referrals per month. Notice shall include the proposed time frame for launching the LookSmart Search Results and ELiberation's reasonable estimate of the likely increase in traffic on a monthly basis during the remainder of the Term. LookSmart will have no obligation to pay for Referrals for which a timely notice is not provided under this section. LookSmart reserves the right, upon written notice to ELiberation, to refuse to allow distribution, sublicensing and syndication of the LookSmart Search Results on the particular affiliate or traffic source, in its sole discretion. If at any time during the term of this Agreement, the average Click Through Rate (total Referrals to LookSmart divided by total queries) from the iPilot Service falls below 0.5% over a 14 day period, LookSmart will have the option to stop processing queries, and the parties will promptly meet and work together in good faith to determine the cause of the low Click Through Rate. Upon LookSmart's request, ELiberation will make commercially reasonable effort to offer reporting of affiliate traffic to allow LookSmart to determine the performance of Prioritized Listings on the ePilot Service and ePilot Affiliate Sites. 6. LICENSES. 6.1. TRADEMARK LICENSE. During the Term of this Agreement, each party hereby grants to the other party a non-exclusive, non-sub-licensable, non-transferable, royalty-free right and license (the "Trademark License") to use, display and reproduce such party's name, logo, trademarks and service marks (the "Trademarks"), solely for the purposes of displaying and maintaining the LookSmart Service and EPilot Service as set forth in this Agreement.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein, the parties agree that during the term of this Amendment, the Agreement will be amended as follows: 1. Section 1. Section is hereby amended to include the following definitions: "CLICK" occurs when a bona fide Internet user (which excludes a robot, spider, software, scraper or other mechanical, artificial or fraudulent means, or a person who is not seeking to use the Partner Network for a legitimate web search, e.g. has been paid or otherwise motivated to click) clicks on a Paid Listing and accesses the destination site. "GROSS REVENUE" means total invoices generated from Search Results on Partner Network during the applicable period, plus or minus any net credits or returns from previous periods. "PAID LISTING" means a listing for which a third party has paid to include in Search Results.

The amount that an advertiser pays to LookSmart influences (among other factors) the position in which the advertiser's listing appears in Sponsored Search. 2. Section 3. Section 3 is hereby deleted and replaced with the following: COST PER CLICK (CPC). Subject to the terms and conditions hereof, for any given calendar month, LookSmart will pay Partner ***% of Gross Revenue for all valid Clicks generated by Partner, as recorded by LookSmart's proprietary click tracking system. LookSmart will have sole discretion to adjust the CPC bid revenue share to more than ***% of Gross Revenue for each search term. Partner may use the CPC bid included in the live feed for its internal purposes, but the parties agree that all CPC bid amounts submitted by LookSmart are confidential information for internal use only, and shall not be posted on Partner's or Partner's Network web pages or disclosed to any third parties. 3. Section 8. Section 8 is hereby deleted and replaced with the following: 8.1 TERM. The term of this Agreement (the "TERM") will begin on the Effective Date of this Amendment and will end *** later.

Either party may terminate this Agreement if the other party (i) materially breaches its obligations hereunder and such breach remains uncured for thirty (30) days following delivery of written notice to the breaching party of the breach, or (ii) is subject *** Portions of this page have been omitted pursuant to a request for confidential treatment and filed separately with the Securities and Exchange Commission. 1 <PAGE> to voluntary or involuntary bankruptcy proceedings, insolvency, liquidation or otherwise substantially discontinues its business operations. 8.3 EFFECT OF TERMINATION. Termination of this Agreement by either party will not act as a waiver of any breach of this Agreement and will not act as a release of either party hereto from any accrued liability (including payments as set forth in the following section) or liability for breach of such party's obligations under this Agreement. Within thirty (30) days following the expiration or termination of this Agreement, each party will pay to the other party all sums, if any, due and owing as of the date of expiration or termination, net of any amounts due from the other party as of such date. Upon the expiration or termination of this Agreement for whatever reason, each party shall immediately cease to use the other party's trademarks, proprietary information, Search Results, intellectual property (including derivative works or modifications thereof) and Confidential Information in any manner whatsoever, and shall destroy or return (at the option of the other party), any such property, or materials representing the same to the other party, and provide the other party with an officer's certificate attesting to such return/destruction. For the avoidance of doubt, upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, the license granted hereunder shall terminate and Partner and its agents shall immediately cease all use of the Search Results. 8.4 SURVIVABILITY. Sections 7 through 12 hereof shall survive and continue beyond the term and termination of this Agreement for a period of one year. 4. Section 12.2.

In the event of any conflict between the terms hereof and the terms of the Agreement, the terms hereof shall govern. This Amendment may be executed in counterparts, each of which may be an original or fax copy, and all of which together shall form one instrument. LOOKSMART LTD. INTERCHANGE CORPORATION By: /s/ A.
