In such event, such non-assignable contracts (the "NON-ASSIGNABLE CONTRACTS") shall be excluded from the definition of Assigned Contracts for only so long as the applicable restriction remains in place and such property or asset or the proceeds thereof shall be held and/or received by Seller, if possible, for the benefit of Purchaser and Seller shall, until such time as any Non-Assignable Contract is effectively assigned to Purchaser, act as agent for Purchaser in order to obtain for Purchaser the benefits that would flow from ownership of such asset, including without limitation collecting and paying over to Purchaser any amounts payable to Seller with respect to any Humongous IP pursuant to a Non-Assignable Contract. Seller shall use its Commercially Reasonable Efforts to obtain, and Purchaser agrees to cooperate with Seller in its efforts to obtain, the consent of such third party to the assignment or transfer. If such consent is not obtained, Seller and Purchaser shall cooperate in any reasonable arrangements designed to provide Purchaser the obligations and benefits thereunder such as, by example, entering into a subcontract relationship. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the obligations of Seller under this Section 1.6 shall not include any obligations to make any payment or incur any economic burden. Purchaser shall pay all third party costs associated with obtaining any such assignments. Without limitation to the generality of the foregoing, Seller shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts prior to the Closing in attempting to obtain any required consents and/or assignments in order to effect the transfer to Purchaser, or the entry into by Purchaser, as the case may be, of the League Licenses.

All references to any Encumbrances shall be deemed to exclude such lien. ARTICLE II OTHER AGREEMENTS 2.1 Contingent License. The parties intend that the assignment of rights in the Humongous IP set forth in Sections 1.1 and 1.2 above will be effective in transferring all of Seller's right, title and interest in the Humongous IP to Purchaser, including, but not limited to the scripts, storyboards, outlines, plot structures, speech recordings, images, characters, characterizations, drawings, designs, graphics, artworks, source code, object code and other characteristics embodied therein and any and all existing or in-development games, characters, objects, sound and music. However, to the extent, if any, that the assignment of rights in Sections 1.1 and 1.2 is not legally effective and, as a result, Seller retains any right, title or interest in any of the Humongous IP, Seller hereby grants Purchaser an irrevocable, paid-up, perpetual, royalty-free, exclusive, transferable, sublicensable, worldwide right and license to use, exploit, make, reproduce, distribute, broadcast, transmit, perform and display (publicly or otherwise), sell, offer for sale, market, advertise, and modify all or any portion of the Humongous IP for any purpose (the "CONTINGENT LICENSE"). Further, to the extent, if any, that the assignments and contingent licenses in this Agreement are not legally effective, Seller also hereby forever waives and agrees never to assert against Purchaser or any of its successors in interest any moral right or other right or interest it may retain in the Humongous IP. 2.2 Pre-existing Licenses. Any and all existing agreements between Seller as a licensor, and third parties, as licensee(s), relating to the Humongous IP in existence as of the date of this Agreement, including without limitation such agreements listed on Schedule 2.2 (the "PREEXISTING LICENSES") shall (except in the case of Preexisting Licenses that materially pertain to Seller properties other than, and in addition to, the Humongous IP) be assigned to Purchaser to the extent they are legally transferable by Seller without the consent of any other party. To the extent (if any) that any such Preexisting Licenses cannot be assigned by Purchaser without the consent of the applicable licensee, Seller shall use Commercially Reasonable Efforts to obtain such consent. Upon the signing hereof, Seller shall be deemed fully and irrevocably licensed, on a personal, non-transferable, non-assignable, non-sublicensable (except for the licenses existing as of the Closing Date or as otherwise specified herein) exclusive world-wide royalty free basis until the end of the respective terms of the Preexisting Licenses, to grant the rights granted under any (if any) Preexisting Licenses that are Non-Assignable Contracts or that materially pertain to Seller properties other than, and in addition to, the Humongous IP (the "NON-ASSIGNABLE -7- <PAGE> PREEXISTING LICENSES"). Purchaser acknowledges that any and all Non-Assignable Preexisting Licenses shall remain in full force and effect during the duration of their respective license terms. Seller agrees that it shall not amend or modify the terms of, or extend the license term of, any Non-Assignable Preexisting License. To the extent that a Non-Assignable Preexisting License contains an automatic renewal provision, Seller shall terminate such Non-Assignable Preexisting Agreement, if permissible, at the first opportunity after the Closing Date. All Non-Assignable Preexisting Licenses are designated as such on Schedule 2.2. Purchaser agrees not to enter into any agreement with respect to the Catalogue Games or any other game(s) incorporating or embodying any of the Humongous IP after the signing hereof (except as permitted pursuant to the Distribution Agreement), and, to the extent Purchaser is made aware by Seller, Purchaser agrees to refrain from entering into any agreement or performing any act which, if were done by Seller would violate any provision of any Preexisting License. During the remaining term(s) of any Non-Assignable Preexisting License, Seller shall remit the portion of all revenues received thereunder attributable to any Humongous IP (to be allocated by Seller in good faith, with such allocation subject to Purchaser approval, not to be unreasonably withheld) to Purchaser within forty-five (45) days after the end of the calendar quarter in which Seller receives such revenues. Purchaser acknowledges that Seller is in negotiations with Hasbro relating to Seller licensing certain Humongous IP to Hasbro for use in "plug and play" games (the "HASBRO AGREEMENTS"). Purchaser hereby covenants and agrees to discontinue such negotiations and not to sign any of the Hasbro Agreements. 2.3 Inventory. From the signing hereof until the Closing, Seller agrees to refrain from selling any of the Existing Inventory (a complete list of which is set forth as Schedule 2.3), and from Dumping (as defined below) any of the in-channel inventory of the Catalogue Games in the market. "DUMPING" means the distribution of Catalogue Games at volume levels significantly above Seller's prior practices with respect to the Catalogue Games during the past 12 months, and at price levels significantly below Seller's prior sales practices with respect to products similar to the Catalogue Games; provided, however, that nothing contained herein is deemed to restrict Seller's ability to set product prices at Seller's discretion. Seller shall be responsible for and pay any and all payments, liabilities and obligations due with respect to Seller's (or its distributors') sales of the Catalogue Games prior to Closing and Seller hereby indemnifies Purchaser in connection with any such obligations or liabilities pursuant to Article XI. 2.4 Rights and Liabilities Maintained by Seller with Respect to Non-Assignable Preexisting Licenses. Subject to the provisions of Section 2.2 with respect to the allocation of Non-Assignable Preexisting License revenues, Seller shall maintain the right to retain copies of all documentation, source code, object code and other materials related to the Humongous IP to the extent necessary to exercise Seller's rights to fulfill its obligations pursuant to the Non-Assignable Preexisting Licenses. 2.5 Distribution Agreement. As a condition of closing, Purchaser and Seller shall enter into a distribution agreement, substantially in the form as attached hereto at Schedule 2.5, pursuant to which Seller shall be granted the exclusive right to distribute all of Purchaser's products containing the Humongous IP in the United States, Canada and Mexico (the "DISTRIBUTION AGREEMENT").
