functional search field and, if available, directory tree. The specifications of
the Premier Graphic and its placement on the Page are set forth on Exhibit A
hereto, and Premier Provider's compliance with the content as well as the
technical, visual and functional specifications set forth in Exhibit A are a
material obligation of Premier Provider under this Agreement. Netscape may, upon

         3.2. Stack. Netscape will produce the Page as set forth on Exhibit A.
The Premier Graphic of each of the services appearing in the Premier Provider
category on the Page will appear to be overlapped in a stack (the "STACK"). A
Premier Graphic on the Page will be accessible by the end user by pressing or
"clicking" on a tab (the "TAB") for the relevant Premier Provider's service.
Netscape will produce the Page such that when an end user presses or "clicks"
on hypertext links ("PREMIER LINKS") placed by Premier Provider on the Premier

pages located at the applicable URL's ("PREMIER URL'S") for such pages on the
collection of English-language HTML documents Premier Provider maintains as its
primary web site whose home page is located at the URL http://www.infoseek.com
("PREMIER PROVIDER'S WEB SITE").

         3.3. Rotation. Netscape will rotate the display of (i) Premier Graphics

percent (100%) of the time in which the Default Page is served up to end users.
The Tab for Premier Provider's service will appear left-most on the Page [*] of

default Premier Graphic, the Premier Graphic selected by the end user will be
served on top of the Stack when that end user accesses the Page. If an end user

default basis, the other Premier Graphics will not appear on the top of the
Stack unless selected by the end user.

use, any items of any nature that belong to the other party and all items
containing or related to Confidential Information of the other party.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, if this Agreement expires or is terminated for
any reason, other than by Premier Provider as a result of Netscape's material
breach, Premier Provider shall remain liable for the value of the payments which
are due or, but for such expiration or termination, would otherwise become due
and payable under the terms of this Agreement. The following provisions shall
survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason: Section
7.6 (No Taxes), Section 8.2 (No Liability), Section 9.2 (Effect of Termination),
Section 11 (Responsibility), Section 12 (Limitation of Liability), and Section
13 (General). In addition, to the extent that any credit provided by Premier
Provider to Netscape pursuant to Section 7.7 shall not be applied against
advertising services provided by Premier Provider to Netscape during the Premier
Period, Section 7.7 shall survive the expiration or termination of this
Agreement until all such credits shall be applied against such services.

10. RIGHT TO REFUSE. Netscape will have the right to review the contents and
format of the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical Listing, the Bookmarked Page
and Premier Provider's Advertisement. If Netscape, in its sole discretion, at
any time determines that the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical Listing, the
Bookmarked Page or Premier Provider's Advertisement contains any material, or
presents any material in a manner that Netscape deems inappropriate for any
reason, Netscape will inform Premier Provider of the reason Netscape has made
such determination and may (i) refuse to include the Premier Graphic or the
Alphabetical Listing in the Page, Default Page or Premier Provider's
Advertisement on Netscape's U.S. English-language Web Site, and/or (ii)
immediately terminate this Agreement if Premier Provider has not revised to
Netscape's reasonable satisfaction the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical
Listing, the Bookmarked Page or Premier Provider's Advertisement within one (1)
business day after receipt of written notice from Netscape. If Netscape, in its
sole discretion, at any time determines that the Premier Provider's Web Site
contains any material, or presents any material in a manner, that Netscape deems
inappropriate for any reason, Netscape may immediately terminate this Agreement
upon notice to Premier Provider. Netscape reserves the right to refuse to
include in the Page or Default Page any Premier Graphic, or any Alphabetical
Listing in the Alpha Page,

that does not completely conform to the specifications set forth in Exhibit A,
and any Premier Provider's Advertisement that does not completely conform to the
specifications of the applicable advertising program.

11. RESPONSIBILITY. Premier Provider is solely responsible for any legal
liability arising out of or relating to (i) the Premier Graphic, the
Alphabetical Listing, Premier Provider's Bookmark, the Bookmarked Page and
Premier Provider's Advertisement, and/or (ii) any material to which users can
link through the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical Listing, Premier Provider's
Bookmark, the Bookmarked Page and Premier Provider's Advertisement. Premier
Provider represents and warrants that it holds the necessary rights to permit
the use of the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical Listing, the Premier URL, the
Alphabetical URL, the Premier Links, the Alphabetical Link, Premier Provider's
Bookmark, the Bookmarked Page and Premier Provider's Advertisements by Netscape
for the purpose of this Agreement; and that the permitted use, reproduction,
distribution, or transmission of the Premier Graphic, the Alphabetical Listing,
Premier Provider's Bookmark, the Bookmarked Page, Premier Provider's
Advertisements and any material to which users can link through the Premier
Graphic, Alphabetical Listing, Premier Provider's Bookmark, the Bookmarked Page
and Premier Provider's Advertisements will not violate any criminal laws or any
rights of any third parties, including, but not limited to, infringement or
misappropriation of any copyright, patent, trademark, trade secret, music,
image, or other proprietary or property right, false advertising, unfair
competition, defamation, invasion of privacy or rights of celebrity, violation
of any antidiscrimination law or regulation, or any other right of any person or
entity, or otherwise violate any applicable local, state, national or
international law. Premier Provider agrees to indemnify Netscape and to hold
Netscape harmless from any and all liability, loss, damages, claims, or causes
of action, including reasonable legal fees and expenses that may be incurred by
Netscape, arising out of or related to Premier Provider's breach of any of the
foregoing representations and warranties.

12. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. IN NO EVENT WILL EITHER PARTY BE LIABLE TO THE
OTHER FOR ANY SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, WHETHER BASED ON
BREACH OF CONTRACT, TORT (INCLUDING NEGLIGENCE), OR OTHERWISE, AND WHETHER OR
NOT THAT PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGE. THE LIABILITY
OF EITHER PARTY FOR DAMAGES OR ALLEGED DAMAGES HEREUNDER (EXCEPT FOR DAMAGES OR
ALLEGED DAMAGES ARISING UNDER SECTION 11) WHETHER IN CONTRACT OR TORT OR ANY
OTHER LEGAL THEORY IS LIMITED TO AND SHALL NOT EXCEED THE PAYMENT DUE FROM
PREMIER PROVIDER HEREUNDER.

                                    EXHIBIT A
                           SPECIFICATIONS OF THE PAGE

Site Samplers are available exclusively to Premier and "Marquee" Providers. As
of May 1, 1997, Net Search will support Netscape Navigator versions 2 and 3
(both Macintosh and PC platforms), and Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 (PC
only). (See Net Search Sampler Test Specification, External for complete list).
All other browsers will be routed to a simple version of the page which
encourages users to download a more current version of Netscape's browser.
Netscape will spend up to one hour of engineering time per sampler per month to
integrate the Site Samplers into the Net Search page if available. If more
engineering or QA time than is available becomes necessary to fix bugs
discovered, or if the necessary changes to fix any bugs include changes to the
appearance of the sampler, the Site Sampler will be returned for revision. The
specifications are as follows:

    - SIZE. All Premier Provider materials should be exactly 468 by 165 pixels.
      Design Site Samplers that include text and interactive forms for a default
      font size of 12 points. (Be aware, however, that text and forms may resize
      on your audience's browsers as they change their default font sizes.) Keep
      in mind that the (FONT SIZE=) tag is not implemented in early versions of
      web browsers.

      Site Samplers will be measured by taking a screen shot on a system
      configured as follows: A PC running Windows 95, with the settings
      configured for small fonts, and an NEC MultiSync XV17+ (17 inch) monitor.
      The screen shot will be taken of Netscape Navigator Gold version 3.1, with
      the Proportional Font set at 12pt Times New Roman, and the Fixed Font set
      at 10pt Courier New. The measurement will be taken in Paintbrush. Netscape
      will provide measurement services", if needed, for companies that don't
      have the specified platform configuration.

    - HTML QUIRKS. We have found a few less-than-obvious quirks which cause some
      browsers to crash, which we thought would be helpful to pass on:

         1.       (FORM) tags must follow IMMEDIATELY AFTER your sampler's first
                  (TABLE) tag. Any variation of this whatsoever will cause a
                  significant number of users to crash.

         2.       Any empty (TD) tags should be separated by a carriage return.
                  HTML should read as follows:

                  (TD)

                  (/TD)

                  as opposed to

                  (TD)(/TD)

         3.       If text appears without any spacing between words (for
                  instance, in a sentence as opposed to in a table), any text
                  that falls closer than 50 pixels to the edge of the Site
                  Sampler should be tested on a Unix machine. Often, this text
                  will be cut off on that platform.

         4.       Interleaving HTML tags will cause several browsers to crash.
                  Tags should be ordered as follows:

         5.       (H3)(FONT COLOR="#000055")Text here(/FONT)(/H3) as opposed to

         6.     (H3)(FONT COLOR="#000055")Text here(/H3)(/FONT)

- -        TABLES. In order to maintain the robustness of the page, please do not
         include any more than one nested table, for a total of two tables per
         sampler. Any more than one nested table will cause crashes for a
         significant number of users. One simple table is ideal, as even one
         nested table may cause some implementation problems when integrated
         with the Net Search page. If you are nesting a table, please test
         carefully.

- -        IMAGE MAPS. Only a client-side image map is necessary, since browsers
         which don't support client-side maps will not be directed to the main
         Net Search page.

- -        FILE SIZES. To keep the user's load time low, we request that Premier
         Provider files not exceed 20K unless cleared by the Destinations
         production manager at [email protected]

- -        ANIMATED GIFs. Due to the large number of users whose browsers do not
         support animated GIFs, and their typically large file size, we are not
         implementing animated GIFs at this time.

- -        JAVASCRIPT. JavaScript tends to cause older browsers to behave
         unpredictably and in many cases crash, and there is delicate technology
         in place to implement the Site Sampler functionality. As a result, the
         implementation of Java Script in Site Samplers is not an option at this
         time.

- -        DELIVERY. Content providers should email files to Netscape at
         [email protected] If you are providing multiple files, you
         should place them in a folder labeled with the content provider's name.
         For the best possible results, deliver Site Samplers that are already
         integrated into a copy of the Net Search page.

- -        FILENAMES. It is important that filenames be in the following format:
         search_providername.fmt (for example, search_yoohoo.gif,
         search_yoohoo.htm). If there are two or more files of a certain format,
         filenames should be in the following format: search_providername#.fmt
         (for example, search_yoohoo1.gif, search_yoohoo2.gif). When you update
         your Site Sampler, continue to increment the number to help avoid
         caching issues.

- -        FORMAT. All content providers need to provide HTML files that include
         the layout for their materials. All HTML should be uppercase. Please
         include the TARGET="_top" attribute in all HREF tags. Height and width
         tags need to be specified for all images. Graphics files should be in
         GIF format; all other formats should be cleared with the Destinations
         production manager at [email protected]

- -        GRAPHICS. By limiting the number of individual graphics (server calls)
         in your Site Sampler, you will improve overall page performance and
         allow the page to load more quickly. Cropping as close as possible to
         the image, leaving no white space around them, will also allow the page
         to load more quickly. To minimize dithering and insure that the users
         across all platforms see what you expect them to see, we recommend use
         of the Netscape Color Palette.
