2. DISTRIBUTION & CALCULATION OF LICENSE FEES.
(a) SVOD Distribution: When the Program(s) are distributed via the SVOD Distribution Rights under a CPM model of profit participation, the License Fee shall be payable from the quarterly SVOD Gross Proceeds. In the event that the quarterly SVOD Gross Proceeds do not meet or exceed the amount necessary for REVRY to compensate all Scaled Licensors under their maximum CPM rates for a given quarter, the CPM rates shall be equitably reduced amongst all Scaled Licensors to an amount necessary to permit remittance of payment to the same. In no event will the CPM for Scaled Licensors be reduced any lower than is necessary to achieve the foregoing. In the event that no quarterly SVOD Gross Proceeds are collected, no License Fees will be due. By way of example only, please refer to the following scenario: Licensor A and Licensor B both receive up to a $10 per CPM for the licensing of their content. For Quarter A, Licensor A receives 3 CPMs and Licensor B receives 1 CPM but REVRY’s SVOD Gross Proceeds amount to $36. Because the SVOD Gross Proceeds for Quarter A do not permit the payment of the maximum CPM rate ($10) to Licensor A and Licensor B, the rate will be reduced to $9 per CPM for both licensors in order to permit REVRY to make payment to all Scaled Licensors. Therefore, Licensor A would receive $27 and Licensor B would receive $9 for Quarter A. If on the other hand, REVRY’s SVOD Gross Proceeds for Quarter A are $40 or greater both licensors would receive the maximum CPM rate for Quarter A with Licensor A receiving $30 and Licensor B receiving $10.
(b) TVOD Distribution: When the Program(s) are distributed via the TVOD Distribution Rights, Licensor shall be paid from the TVOD Net Profits.
(c) AVOD/FVOD Distribution: When the Program(s) are distributed via the AVOD or FVOD Distribution Rights either (i) on the Service, or (ii) on any third party distribution platforms that pay based on a CPM model of distribution (e.g. YouTube) – but not including any IPTV Linear distribution – REVRY shall pay Licensor twenty-five percent (25%) of the AVOD CPM payable in accordance with the Payment Schedule.
(d) IPTV Linear Distribution When the Program(s) are distributed via the IPTV Linear Distribution Rights, Licensor shall be entitled to a percentage of the Creator Fund every Quarter equal to the following: the total cumulative running time of the Program(s) programmed during a given Quarter divided by the total amount of time programmed for the same Quarter (“IPTV Linear Fee”). For example, if the total cumulative running time for the Licensed Picture during the Quarter is 10,080 minutes (i.e. 120 minute-long Licensed Picture programmed 84 times during the Quarter) and the total hours programmed during this quarter equals 129,960 minutes (i.e. 24 hours a day for 3 months), Licensee shall pay Licensor approximately 8% of the the Creator Fund for that Quarter (the product of 84 x 120 divided by 129,960 equals .078). Payment of the IPTV Linear Fee shall be made in accordance with the Payment Schedule defined in the License.
3. REVRY PROPERTY
It is hereby agreed and understood by the Parties that REVRY and any property and rights, and all associated intellectual property thereof, including without limitation all audio, copyrights, trademarks, service marks, insignias, technology, websites, softer, products, services, processes, applications, information, materials, and/or any other rights therein, and the Service and all elements thereof, as well as all information and data regarding the REVRY users and their activity (“Analytics”) are owned by or sublicensed to us and are protected by copyright, trademark, trade secret, and other laws (“REVRY Property”).

During the Term, REVRY shall have sole and absolute discretion over the exploitation of the Licensed Rights, including, without limitation, the terms of any and all distribution agreements, the identity of any distributors, the media and platforms to exploit the Licensed Rights, and any and all other creative or business decisions related to exploitation of the Licensed Rights. Licensor hereby waives any right that the Licensor may have to inspect or approve the use of the Program(s) or the advertising, marketing, or promotional materials that may be used in connection therewith.
Furthermore, REVRY shall have no obligation to pre-screen, monitor, review, edit, or otherwise approve of your Program(s) or the content featured therein.

Licensor shall cause its insurer(s) to waive subrogation rights against such additional insureds. Licensor shall pay all deductibles under all such insurance policies. Licensor’s insurance shall be primary and without right of contribution from any other insurance not specifically purchased by Licensor to be in excess of or in contribution with the required insurance, and shall operate as if there were a separate policy covering each additional insured. Licensor shall also advise REVRY of any and all claims submitted under the applicable Error and Omission policy. In the event that Licensor has not obtained an Error & Omission policy covering the respective Program(s) and any person or entity makes any claims or institutes any suit or proceedings alleging any facts, which if true, would constitute a breach by Licensor of any warranty, representation or agreement herein made, REVRY shall give prompt written notice of same to Licensor and REVRY or their successors in interest shall have the right, but not the obligation, to assume the defense thereof. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensor and REVRY shall have the unfettered right to defend themselves from any such claim, suit, or proceeding and REVRY shall have the right to withhold, deduct, and/or recoup its defense costs (including its Error & Omission policy’s deductible) from any compensation owed to Licensor hereunder.

13. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
To the maximum extent permitted by law, REVRY and the REVRY Parties shall not be liable for (a) any direct, indirect, incidental, special, consequential, or exemplary damages, including but not limited to damages for loss of profits, goodwill, use, data or other intangible losses, or (b) damages relating to any materials or content on the Program(s), including without limitation, defamatory, offensive or illegal materials or content on the Program(s), even if foreseeable.

REVRY agrees to notify Licensor in writing of any claim or demand based upon the foregoing promptly upon learning of its existence, and upon REVRY’s request, Licensor shall assume the defense of the claim or demand.
REVRY shall indemnify, defend, and hold harmless the Licensor, all related employees and its officers, agents, designees, successors, assigns and licensees from and against any and all liabilities, claims, costs, damages, and expenses (including reasonable outside attorneys' fees and disbursements) arising out of or in connection with the following: (a) the breach by REVRY of any term, condition, representation or warranty under this Agreement; or (b) the gross negligence or willful misconduct of REVRY.

This Agreement and any action related thereto will be governed by the laws of the State of California without regard to conflict of law provisions.
