21. UNILATERAL DISCLOSURE OF CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION BY LINDOWS.COM

21.1 CONFIDENTIAL INFORMATION: The parties anticipate that Lindows.com may
disclose Confidential Information to Licensee. For purposes hereof,
"Confidential Information" means information of Lindows.com or its customers
(i) which relates to the Lindows.com Software Product and related business
models and plans, and technical information and data of Lindows.com or its
customers or suppliers, or (ii) which, although not related to the Lindows.com
Software Product, is nevertheless disclosed hereunder by Lindows.com or its
customers or an affiliate to Licensee in document or other tangible form
bearing an appropriate legend indicating its confidential or proprietary
nature, or which, if initially disclosed orally or visually is identified as
confidential at the time of disclosure and a written summary hereof, also
marked with such a legend, is provided to Licensee within thirty (30) days of
the initial disclosure. However, information disclosed to Licensee by
Lindows.com that is reasonably deemed to be of a confidential nature shall be
Confidential Information for purposes of this Agreement whether or not it is
identified as such in writing or by stamp. Licensee may use Confidential
Information of Lindows.com only for the purposes of this Agreement and shall
protect such Confidential Information from disclosure to others, using the same
degree of care used to protect its own proprietary information of like
importance, but in any case using no less than a reasonable degree of care.
Licensee may disclose Confidential Information received hereunder only as
reasonably required to perform its obligations under this Agreement and only to
its employees who have a need to know for such purposes and who are bound by
signed, written agreements to protect the received Confidential Information
from unauthorized use and disclosure at least as protective as this Section 21.

21.2 LIMITATIONS: The restrictions of this Agreement on use and disclosure
of Confidential Information shall not apply to information that Licensee can
document: (i) is in the possession or control of Licensee at the time of its
disclosure by Lindows.com to Licensee hereunder; (ii) is, or becomes publicly
known, through no wrongful act of Licensee; (iii) is received by Licensee from
a third party free to disclose it without obligation to Lindows.com; or (iv) is
independently developed by Licensee without reference to Confidential
Information.

21.3 GOVERNMENT USER: In the event Licensee is required by law, regulation
or court order to disclose Confidential Information, Licensee will promptly
notify Lindows.com in writing prior to making any such disclosure in order to
facilitate Lindows.com's ability to seek a protective order or other
appropriate remedy from the appropriate body. Licensee further agrees that if
Licensee is not successful in precluding the requesting legal body from
requiring the disclosure of the Confidential Information, it will furnish only
that portion of the Confidential Information which is legally required and will
exercise all reasonable efforts to obtain reliable assurances that confidential
treatment will be accorded the Confidential Information. Any Confidential
Information released under this Section 21.3 shall remain Confidential
Information or all other purposes.

22. PROTECTION OF LINDOWS.COM SOFTWARE PRODUCT: Notwithstanding the foregoing,
specifically regarding the Lindows.com Software Product, Licensee acknowledges
that the Lindows.com Software Product embodies valuable trade secrets
proprietary to Lindows.com. Accordingly, Licensee shall take reasonable
measures to protect the Lindows.com Software Product from unauthorized access,
disclosure, and use, including without limitation, the placement of any
Proprietary Rights notice on the Lindows.com Software Product that is
reasonably requested by Lindows.com. Licensee shall not: (i) distribute,
transfer, loan, rent, or provide access to the Lindows.com Software Product,
except as provided herein; or (ii) remove or add any Proprietary Rights notice
associated with the Lindows.com Software Product without the express written
permission of Lindows.com.

23. INJUNCTIVE RELIEF: The parties hereby agree that any breach of any provision
of this Agreement regarding confidentiality or protection of Proprietary Rights
would constitute irreparable harm, and that the aggrieved party shall be
entitled to specific performance and/or injunctive relief in addition to other
remedies at law or in equity. This Section 23 shall not be construed to
preclude either party from seeking equitable relief under any other Section of
this Agreement.

24. TERM OF AGREEMENT: The term of this Agreement shall commence as of the
Effective Date hereof and shall continue for twelve (12) months, unless
terminated earlier by either of the parties as described below. Fees will be

25. AUTOMATIC TERMINATION: Unless Licensee promptly, after discovery of the
relevant facts, notifies Lindows.com to the contrary in writing, this Agreement
will terminate immediately without notice upon the institution of insolvency,
bankruptcy, or similar proceedings by or against Licensee, any assignment or
attempted assignment by Licensee for the benefit of creditors, or any
appointment, or application for such appointment, of a receiver for Licensee.

26. TERMINATION: Either party may terminate this Agreement and all rights

arbitrator, and such arbitrator shall be chosen by mutual agreement of the
parties in accordance with AAA rules. The arbitration shall take place in San

subject matter of this Agreement exists. This Agreement shall be construed
under the laws of the State of California, without regard to its conflicts of
law principles or the 1980 United Nations Convention on the International Sale
of Goods. The findings of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on the
parties, and may be entered in any court of competent jurisdiction for
enforcement. Notwithstanding anything contained above in this Section 28 to the
contrary, each party shall have the right to institute judicial proceedings
against the other party or anyone acting by, through or under such other party
in order to enforce the instituting party's rights hereunder through specific
performance, injunction or similar equitable relief.
