is set forth on Exhibit A hereto. Licensor agrees to update the attached list
within 90 days to indicate therein the titles of all of the Catalog Pictures,
the dates on which they are expected to become available for use by CSB, their
dates of production and such other information as may be reasonably requested by
CSB. Any motion pictures acquired by Licensor on an individual or bulk purchase

many Catalog Pictures as it desires to exploit in the Territory.

     5.2 Commencing in August 1999, CSB shall, to the extent available,

the two (2) "premier" titles which CSB has been licensing per month from
Licensor's "Gonzo", "Amazing", "Toxxxic" or similar collections at a license fee
of $3,000 to $5,000 a title. In addition, at such time as Licensor's existing
license agreement with Playboy Enterprises is terminated prior to its term, CSB
agrees to pre-select two (2) additional new motion pictures, to the extent then
available, at a license fee of $14,000 per title; provided, that: (i) at least
one of the two (2) additional new motion pictures is shot on film ( as opposed
to video); and (ii) the two (2) additional new motion pictures are reasonably
visually distinctive from the other new motion pictures delivered to CSB that
month (e.g., have different directors, different stars, different story lines
and a different general look from the other delivered movies). If the Playboy
Enterprises contract expires pursuant to its terms, CSB agrees that its
obligation to pre-select additional new motion pictures shall relate to an
additional three (3), not two (2), additional neTM motion pictures, and all

promptly notify Licensor of the technical defects in the material delivered and
Licensor will remedy any and all such defects, at no cost to CSB, within ten
(10) days of receipt of such notice. If CSB's rejection is for reasons related
to its editing standards, Licensor will replace the rejected Picture(s) within
thirty (30) days after Licensor receives notice of such rejection, with another
Picture(s) in the same category as that of the Picture rejected. It is
acknowledged and agreed that to the extent that any of the Pictures are of a
general quality equivalent to Licensor's current CalVista line of motion
pictures, such Pictures shall be deemed to meet CSB's general quality standards.


         Except with respect to the pre-existing rights of third parties to the
Catalog Pictures, all still photographs within the "Catalog Pictures", and for
Licensor's rights relating to the Interact and Kiosk Transmission Service, as
further described below, each and all of the Rights granted to CSB hereunder
shall be exclusive to CSB during the Term and Licensor agrees to take all action
necessary to ensure that CSB is accorded the right to exploit such Rights
without interference from any third party.

during the first ninety (90) days following the release date of all New
Releases, except that CSB may use the New Releases on the Interact for
promotional purposes only (and not for commercial use or in connection with a
multiple channel feed). Thereafter, CSB shall have exclusive Internet Rights to
the New Releases for seven (7) years, subject only to Licensor's right to
continue to use the New Releases on its own web site and Internet mall.
