For all other Sublicenses to Third-Parties except for the standalone Sublicenses as specified herebelow, the amount of royalties paid by Sublicensee(s) to LICENSEE shall be included into the amount of Net Sales. It is understood between the parties, that LICENSOR will be paid by LICENSEE [***] that would be equivalent to what LICENSOR would have received if LICENSEE has been selling directly the PRODUCTS. Such percentage shall not exceed [***] of the amount of revenue actually received by LICENSEE. If LICENSEE grants a Sublicense to the LICENSED PATENTS to a third-party on a standalone basis, LICENSEE shall pay to PMC [***] of any incremental consideration that LICENSEE may receive from any Third-Party Sublicensee such as but not limited to license issue fees, milestone payments and royalties.
