2.        License.

a.        Subject to the terms of this Agreement, AMD hereby grants to User a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, royalty-free copyright license to use the Licensed Materials only for the purpose of executing and evaluating the performance of software.  Other than the limited license granted in this Section 2.a., User shall have no other rights in the Licensed Materials or Software, whether express, implied, arising by estoppel or otherwise. If User desires to distribute any of the Licensed Materials or Software, User shall enter into a separate written agreement with AMD.

b.        Without limiting Section 2.a. above, User does NOT have the right:

                                                         i.            to modify, adapt, translate, or create derivative works based upon the Licensed Materials or Software or any part thereof; or

                                                        ii.            to modify, disassemble, reverse engineer, decompile, or otherwise reduce to source code or any human perceivable form any part of the Software, Licensed Materials or updates thereto that are not already source code; or

                                                      iii.            to remove proprietary legends in the Software or Licensed Materials including, but not limited to, legends that protect AMD's patent, trade secret, copyright and other proprietary rights in the Software or Licensed Materials.

3.        Ownership and Copyright of Material. The Software and Licensed Materials are owned by AMD and its licensors and are protected by United States and international intellectual property laws and other international treaty provisions. Except as expressly provided herein, AMD does not grant any express or implied right to User under AMD patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets or other proprietary rights.

4.        Obligations of the Parties.

a.        Licensed Materials and Software. User may use the Licensed Materials and Software only in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement.

b.        Feedback. During the term of this Agreement, User may inform AMD of all errors, difficulties or other problems with the Licensed Materials or Software, collectively referred to as "feedback". AMD may use for any purpose whatsoever, any feedback User provides regarding the Licensed Materials or Software including, but not limited to, usability, bug reports and test reports.

c.        Issuance of Software or Licensed Materials. AMD shall not be obligated to make the Software or Licensed Materials publicly available, in whole or in part.

d.        Support. AMD may, in its sole discretion, provide to User updates to the Software, Licensed Materials and Documentation, and such updates will be covered under this Agreement. AMD is under no obligation to provide User with any updates, support, or maintenance of the Software, Licensed Materials or Documentation.

5.        Disclaimer of Warranty and Indemnity. THE LICENSED MATERIALS, SOFTWARE, AND ANY OTHER MATERIALS PROVIDED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT ARE PROVIDED “AS IS,” WITH ALL FAULTS, AND WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY KIND.  FURTHERMORE, NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, ARE MADE WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED MATERIALS OR SOFTWARE INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, ANY WARRANTIES THAT MAY ARISE FROM USAGE OF TRADE OR COURSE OF DEALING, AND ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF TITLE OR NON-INFRINGEMENT.
                IN NO EVENT SHALL AMD BE LIABLE FOR ANY SPECIAL, DIRECT, INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, EXEMPLARY, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, EXPENSES, LOST PROFITS, LOST SAVINGS, BUSINESS INTERRUPTION, LOST BUSINESS INFORMATION, OR ANY OTHER DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE SOFTWARE OR LICENSED MATERIALS, EVEN IF AMD HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES AND NOTWITHSTANDING THE FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY REMEDY. User acknowledges that its use of the Software or Licensed Materials without charge reflects this allocation of risk. Some states or jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental, consequential or special damages, or the exclusion of implied warranties, and therefore, the above limitations might not apply to User.
       In addition to the disclaimer of warranties set forth above, it is understood that AMD makes no representations concerning the completeness, accuracy or operation of the Software or Licensed Materials.
       Furthermore, User shall have the sole responsibility for adequate protection and backup of its data used in connection with the Software or Licensed Materials, and User shall not make any claim against AMD for lost data, re-run time, inaccurate input, work delays or lost profits resulting from the use of the Software or Licensed Materials.
       USER AGREES TO DEFEND, INDEMNIFY AND HOLD HARMLESS AMD, ITS LICENSORS, ITS LICENSEES, AND ANY OF THEIR DIRECTORS, OFFICERS, EMPLOYEES, AFFILIATES OR AGENTS, FROM AND AGAINST ANY AND ALL LOSS, DAMAGE, LIABILITY AND OTHER EXPENSES (INCLUDING REASONABLE ATTORNEYS' FEES), RELATED TO OR RESULTING FROM (A) THE USE OF ANY SOFTWARE, LICENSED MATERIALS OR DERIVATIVE WORKS THEREOF OR ANY OTHER MATERIALS PROVIDED AS A RESULT OF THIS AGREEMENT OR (B) ANY SOFTWARE OR LICENSED MATERIALS CREATED OR DISTRIBUTED BY USER.

6.        Limitation of Liability. If, notwithstanding the provisions of this Agreement, AMD shall at any time have any liability arising from or by virtue of this Agreement, whether due to AMD's gross negligence, AMD's breach of its obligations under this Agreement, or otherwise, User agrees that in no event will the total aggregate liability of AMD for any claims, losses, or damages exceed $1,000, notwithstanding the failure of essential purpose of any remedy. This limitation of liability is complete and exclusive, shall apply even if AMD has been advised of the possibility of such potential claims, losses, or damages, and shall apply regardless of the success or effectiveness of any other remedies possessed by User, User's customers, or any third parties. This limitation of liability reflects an agreed upon allocation of risk between AMD and User in view of the nature of this transaction. AMD assumes no liability that may arise out of the use or possession of the Software or Licensed Materials.

7.        Termination.  This Agreement is effective until terminated.  User may terminate this Agreement at any time by destroying all copies of the Software and providing written notice to AMD.  AMD may terminate this Agreement upon ninety (90) days written notice.  If User fails to comply with any of its obligations hereunder, AMD shall have the right, at any time, to terminate the Agreement, and within five (5) days after termination of the Agreement for any reason other than the Software or Licensed Materials being released as a standard AMD product, User will remove or certify in writing to the destruction of, the Licensed Materials from its computer systems and return to AMD the Software and Licensed Materials in the form provided by AMD.  This Agreement shall terminate immediately with respect to any person or entity asserting or threatening to assert any intellectual property right against AMD.

8.        General.
