In addition, the Software utilizes other certain third-party Software components and programs (“Third-Party Software”) which are also subject to their respective licensor’s applicable terms and conditions. You will find such Third-Party Software terms and conditions in the installed documentation accompanying Your copy of the Software, if applicable. Such Third-Party Software terms and conditions work in conjunction with this Agreement and together are complete statements of Your rights and restrictions as they apply to Your use of the Software. It is Your responsibility to review such Third-Party Software terms and conditions and comply with its terms. In the event that any provision of this Agreement is deemed inconsistent with the Third-Party Software terms and conditions, the Third-Party Software terms and conditions shall control.
1.2 In consideration of Your purchase of the Software license, LizardTech grants to You a nonexclusive, nontransferable, limited and perpetual license to use the Software for Your internal business use only, solely in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement. Your Software license is dedicated to one central processing unit (“CPU”) on which the Software is loaded at any one time. You may install and use a copy of the Software on one additional portable computer for the exclusive use of the primary user of the first copy of the Software.
1.3 The Software is unpublished software, trade secret and confidential or proprietary information of LizardTech or its licensors and is commercial software developed at private expense. The Software is a “commercial item,” as that term is defined in 48 C.F.R. 2.101 (Oct. 1995), consisting of “commercial computer software” and “commercial computer software documentation,” as such terms are used in 48 C.F.R. 12.212 (Sept. 1995).

S. government shall be solely in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.
1.4 You may not modify, reverse engineer, disassemble or decompile, or otherwise seek to discover the source code of the Software. Except as otherwise expressly permitted under this Agreement, You may not duplicate the Software except for a sufficient and reasonable number of copies for your licensed use and may only have one copy of each Software media.

2. Additional License Terms and Conditions.
2.1 If the Software requires that You initially contact LizardTech for a specific key code before it will operate, You are permitted to move the Software from the CPU onto which You initially install it, to another CPU, only one (1) time per year without incurring any additional charges from LizardTech. Thereafter, each time You contact LizardTech requesting a key code You will incur LizardTech’s then-current service and handling charge.
2.2 The Software may employ Data Cartridges (“Cartridges”). Cartridges work in conjunction with specific Software previously installed on a user’s system. Cartridges may be installed on a single central processing unit or on a network server that permits access by as many users as You have purchased Software licenses. If the Software employs Cartridges: (i) the portion of the Software that enables Cartridges is licensed under this Agreement as part of the Software to which it applies, and the license conveyed herein with regard to Your use of the Software (and, as applicable, its corresponding Cartridge or Cartridges) is cumulative; and (ii) You are expressly prohibited from attempting to separate a Cartridge from its corresponding Software, or from running these components separately.
2.3 If the Software is the Express View Browser Plug-in for viewing MrSID format files via a standard web browser (“Plug-in”), You are permitted to copy and redistribute the Plug-in directly from Your web site or on tangible media, provided the Plug-in You redistribute is the then current version of the Plug-in as found on LizardTech’s web site and includes all files that came with the Plug-in, including but not limited to the installer and click wrap end-user license agreement. If You redistribute the Plug-in on tangible media, You must affix a permanent label with the following:
The Express View Browser Plug-in is property of Celartem, Inc dba LizardTech. Copyright © 1995 – 2010. All rights reserved. Use permitted only under license from LizardTech.
You need to use the LizardTech logo found at http://www.lizardtech.com/press/gallery.php?album=logos on any website where you reference the Plug-ins. Such use of the logo may establish a link to the location on LizardTech’s website where end-users may download Plug-in(s) for the purpose of viewing MrSID-formatted files. You acknowledge and agree that You are granted no further rights or license to use the LizardTech logo, or any other LizardTech trademarks or logos and that You will not alter or modify such logo in the course of such permitted use, nor will You use the logo in any way that disparages the name or reputation of LizardTech.
If You are unsure whether the Software is a Plug-in, contact LizardTech at firstname.lastname@example.org.
2.4 WARNING. The Software is not designed nor tested for a level of reliability suitable for use in any information system the failure of which can reasonably be expected to cause personal injury. The Software may contain bugs and inaccuracies and You can expect errors, anomalies, and incorrect results under normal use. This Software performs “lossy” data compression. You agree to take precautions to offset these risks such as to maintain full backups of storage media and to not use the Software where personal injury or property damage may result. LizardTech recommends that You retain the original image files or documents from which You create MrSID-formatted or JPEG 2000-formatted files.
3. Term. This Agreement is effective until terminated. You may terminate this Agreement by destroying all copies of the Software. This Agreement shall terminate automatically upon failure by You to comply with any of its terms. Upon any such termination and/or notification by LizardTech of such termination, You must destroy the original and any copies of the Software. However, You agree that any provisions of this Agreement that operate to protect LizardTech and/or its rights shall remain in full force and effect.
4. LIMITED WARRANTY. With the exception of Cartridges or Third-Party Software which may come without warranty of any kind, including no right of refund or return, LizardTech warrants that the Software will perform substantially in accordance with its published specifications for ninety (90) days following Your receipt of the Software, regardless of whether You opened the packaging in which You received the Software, or otherwise used the Software. In addition, any media on which the Software is provided will be free from defects in materials and workmanship under normal use and service for a period of ninety (90) days from the date of receipt. EXCEPT FOR THE ABOVE EXPRESS LIMITED WARRANTIES, THE SOFTWARE AND ANY SERVICES WHICH MAY BE PROVIDED BY LIZARDTECH ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND. LIZARDTECH DISCLAIMS ALL OTHER WARRANTIES ON THE SOFTWARE AND SERVICES, EITHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, OR OF ANY IMPLIED WARRANTY ARISING FROM COURSE OF PERFORMANCE, COURSE OF DEALING, USAGE OR TRADE, OR NONINFRINGEMENT. LIZARDTECH DOES NOT WARRANT THAT THE SOFTWARE WILL BE (a) UNINTERRUPTED OR ERROR FREE IN OPERATION, (b) FREE FROM DEFECTS, (c) WILL MEET YOUR REQUIREMENTS, OR (d) WILL BE COMPATIBLE WITH OR OPERATE IN ANY COMBINATION WITH YOUR EQUIPMENT AND OTHER SOFTWARE PROGRAMS SELECTED BY YOU FOR USE WITH THE SOFTWARE. During the Warranty Period, LizardTech’s entire liability and Your exclusive remedy with respect to any nonconforming Software shall be either, at LizardTech’s option, the replacement of the Software or the refund of the license fee paid for the Software if You return the Software to LizardTech together with proof of purchase. LizardTech will not accept returns based on “buyer’s remorse,” or any other grievance unrelated to a material flaw or defect with the Software. IN NO EVENT WILL LIZARDTECH REFUND ANY LICENSE FEES MORE THAN FOURTEEN (14) DAYS AFTER THE DATE YOU FIRST USED THE SOFTWARE, WITHIN THE NINETY (90) DAY WARRANTY PERIOD NOTED ABOVE. YOU AGREE THESE ARE YOUR ONLY REMEDIES EVEN IF THEY FAIL OF THEIR ESSENTIAL PURPOSE(S). Any express warranty as provided above is void if failure of the Software has resulted from any alteration, modification, accident, abuse, misapplication, abnormal use or a virus. Some states may not allow the above exclusion or limitation of warranties so the above exclusions or limitations may not apply to You. This warranty gives You specific legal rights. You may have other rights which vary from state to state or province to province.
5. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT SHALL LIZARDTECH BE LIABLE TO YOU FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL, INCIDENTAL, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES, INCLUDING ANY LOST DATA, DATA USE, PROFITS, REVENUE OR OPPORTUNITIES, EVEN IF A LIZARDTECH REPRESENTATIVE HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. LIZARDTECH’S LIABILITY FOR ANY OTHER DAMAGES SHALL IN NO EVENT EXCEED THE AMOUNT YOU PAID UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. THIS LIMIATION OF LIZARDTECH’S LIABILITY FOR SOFTWARE AND SERVICES WILL APPLY REGARDLESS OF THE FORM OF ACTION, WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR IN TORT INCLUDING BY NEGLIGENCE OR ANY OTHER BASIS. Some states may not allow the above exclusion or limitation of remedies or damages, so the above exclusions or limitations may not apply to You. You may have other rights which vary from state to state or province to province.
6. Relationship between the Parties. The relationship between the parties shall be that of licensee and licensor. Neither party will represent that it has any authority to assume or create any obligation, express or implied, on behalf of the other party, nor to represent the other party as agent, employee, franchisee, or in any other capacity.
7. Open Source. “Open Source” software – software available without charge for use, modification and distribution – is often licensed under terms that require the user to make the user’s modifications to the Open Source software or any software that the user ‘combines’ with the Open Source software freely available in source code form. If You use Open Source software in conjunction with the Software, You must ensure that Your use does not: (a) create, or purport to create, obligations for LizardTech or its third-party licensors with respect to the Software; or (b) grant, or purport to grant, to any third party any rights to or immunities under LizardTech or its third-party licensors’ intellectual property or proprietary rights in the Software. For example, You may not develop a software program using a Software program and an Open Source program where such use results in a program file(s) that contains code from both the Software program and the Open Source program (including without limitation libraries) if the Open Source program is licensed under a license that requires any “modifications” be made freely available. You also may not combine the Software with programs licensed under the GNU General Public License (“GPL”) in any manner that could cause, or could be interpreted or asserted to cause, the Software or any modifications thereto to become subject to the terms of the GPL.
8. Third-Party Beneficiaries. You acknowledge that third-party licensors of all or any part of the Software are intended beneficiaries of this Agreement including those provisions that address the protection of intellectual property rights in the Software. If LizardTech fails to enforce any provisions, herein such third-party licensors may enforce such provisions against You.
9. Export Control. You agree that You will not export or re-export the Software or any direct product thereof without the appropriate United States or foreign government export licenses, notifications or approvals. By agreeing to this Agreement, You are certifying that You are not a national of an embargoed county, or otherwise a person with whom the U.S. government has prohibited trade.
10. Severability. Should any provision of this Agreement be deemed by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid, void, ineffective, unenforceable, or unlawful, under present or future laws, the remainder of the provisions shall remain in full force and effect and shall in no way be affected, impaired or invalidated. The failure of either party to enforce any provision of this Agreement shall not be deemed a waiver of that party’s right to later enforce that provision or any other provision.
11. Governing Law. This Agreement will be governed by the laws in force in the State of Oregon, U.S.A., and shall exclude that body of law known as conflicts of law and the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods.
12. Entire Agreement. You acknowledge that You have read this Agreement, understand it and that it is the complete and exclusive statement of Your Agreement with LizardTech, which supersedes any prior agreement, oral or written, between LizardTech and You for the Software. No variation of the terms of this Agreement will be enforceable against LizardTech unless LizardTech gives its express consent, in writing signed by an officer of LizardTech.
Government Reserved Rights
Patented technology incorporated in the Software was developed in part through a project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL) funded by the U.S. Government, and managed under contract by the Regents of the University of California (University). The MrSID Technology is under exclusive commercial license to LizardTech. The U.S. Government and the University have certain reserved rights in the Technology as set forth in this Agreement. For further information, contact LizardTech.
(a) Unless required by law, the use of the name “the University of California” or the name of any facility or campus of the University of California in connection with Your use of the Software or any other aspect of this Agreement is expressly prohibited.
(b) The U.S. Government has a nonexclusive, nontransferable, irrevocable, paid-up license to practice or have practiced throughout the world, for or on behalf of the United States, inventions covered by the University’s Patent Rights, and has other rights under 35 U.S.C. § 200-212 and applicable implementing regulations and under the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Assignment and Confirmatory License through which the DOE’s rights in the Technology were assigned to the University.
(c) Under 35 U.S.C. § 203, the DOE has the right to require LizardTech to grant a nonexclusive, partially exclusive or exclusive license under the Patent Rights in any field of use to a responsible applicant(s) upon terms reasonable under the circumstances, if LizardTech does not adequately attempt to commercialize the MrSID Technology. See 37 CFR 401.6.
(d) LizardTech maintains a discount program for sales of software products incorporating the licensed technology to the U.S. Government, or any agency thereof, or any U.S. Government contractor who certifies that its purchase of such software is for, or on behalf of, the U.S. Government.
(e) The University may assign its rights in its License with LizardTech.
(f) Should LizardTech’s rights in the MrSID Technology under its license with the University for any reason terminate during the term of this Agreement, such event will automatically operate as an assignment by LizardTech to the University of all LizardTech’s rights, title, and interest in this Agreement. In such case, if You are not in default of the terms and conditions herein, You may continue to use the Software under the terms of this Agreement. All provisions for the protection of LizardTech would then protect the University.
(g) The University makes no warranty or representation as to the validity or scope of its Patent Rights, nor that LizardTech software to the extent it incorporates the patented technology will not infringe any patent or other proprietary right and has no obligation to bring or prosecute any actions for patent infringement to protect Your use of the Software. The University has no obligation to furnish any know-how, technical assistance, or technical data to You.
