expenses, interest, awards, judgments and penalties (including reasonable
attorneys fees and expenses) actually suffered or incurred by it, actually
arising out of or resulting from Licensor's failure to meet any of its
obligations hereunder.

     7.3  Licensor shall not be liable or responsible in any manner to Licensee,
whether for indemnification or otherwise, except for indemnity as expressly
provided in this Section.  Licensee acknowledges that Licensor is not making,

     ----------------------- 

     8.1  Licensee shall be deemed to be in default under this Agreement, and
this Agreement and all rights granted hereunder will automatically terminate

          liquidation, rehabilitation, reorganization, conservatorship or other

          similar laws, or seeking the appointment of a trustee, receiver or

          other similar official for itself or any substantial part of its
          property, or consents to any such relief in an involuntary case or
          proceeding commenced against it, or makes a general assignment for the
          benefit of creditors, or takes any corporate action to authorize any
          of the foregoing;

     8.2  Licensee shall be deemed to be in default under this Agreement, and
Licensor may, at its option, immediately terminate this Agreement and all rights
granted hereunder upon notice to Licensee, if any of the following events occur:

(a)       if there is any attempted assignment or sublicense of this Agreement
          or any interest therein by Licensee, contrary to the terms hereof.

     8.3  Licensee shall be deemed to be in default and Licensor may, at its
option, upon sixty (60) days written notice to Licensee terminate this Agreement
and all rights granted hereunder if any of the following events occur and
Licensee fails to cure the default within the sixty (60) day notice period:

(a)       if Licensee breaches any of the covenants set forth herein, not
          specified in Section 8.1 or 8.2; or

(b)       if Licensee violates the competition provisions (Section 6.2) of the
          Asset Purchase Agreement; or

(c)       if any involuntary case or other proceeding is commenced against
          Licensee seeking liquidation, rehabilitation, reorganization,
          conservatorship or other relief with respect to it or to its assets
          under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or seeking the
          appointment of a trustee, receiver or other similar official with
          respect to it or any substantial part of its property.

     8.4  Licensor shall be deemed to be in default under this Agreement, and
this Agreement will automatically terminate without notice to Licensor, in the
event:

(a)       Licensor commences a voluntary case or other proceeding seeking
          liquidation, rehabilitation, reorganization, conservatorship or other
          relief for itself or its assets under bankruptcy, insolvency or other
          similar laws, or seeking the appointment of a trustee, receiver or
          other similar official for itself or any substantial part of its
          property, or consents to any such relief in an involuntary case or
          proceeding commenced against it, or makes a general assignment for the
          benefit of creditors, or takes any corporate action to authorize any
          of the foregoing.

     8.5  Licensor shall be deemed to be in default and Licensee may, at its
option, upon sixty (60) days written notice to Licensor terminate this Agreement
and all rights granted hereunder if any of the following events occur and
Licensor fails to cure the default within the sixty (60) day notice period:

(a)       if any involuntary case or other proceeding is commenced against
          Licensor seeking liquidation, rehabilitation, reorganization,
          conservatorship or other relief with respect to it or to its assets
          under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law, or seeking the
          appointment of a trustee, receiver or other similar official with
          respect to it or any substantial part of its property, or

(b)       Licensor breaches any of its representations or covenants hereunder.

     If Licensee terminates this Agreement on account of Licensor's default,
Licensee may seek monetary relief, specific performance or injunctive relief.
If a court should order specific performance in the form of a license to use the
Marks, Licensor and Licensee agree that they will execute such an agreement on
terms no less favorable to Licensor than those set forth herein.

Agreement shall terminate immediately.

instrument in writing, waive compliance by the other party hereto with any term
or provision hereof on the part of such other party hereto to be performed or

the other party all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorneys' fees,
incurred therein.

11.  Assignment.

16.  Dispute Resolution; Governing Law and Jurisdiction.
     -------------------------------------------------- 

     16.1 The parties agree that if any disputes arise under Section 2, senior
management of the parties will meet (or designate other representatives to meet)
and negotiate in good faith in an attempt to resolve the dispute.  In the event
that the parties are unable to resolve the dispute within thirty (30) days from
the date of written notice of disagreement, either party may submit and the
other party may agree to refer the dispute to binding mediation which shall be
conducted under the then applicable rules of the CPR/INTA Alternative Dispute
Resolution Program, or such other mediation process which shall be agreed to by
the parties.  None of the remaining provisions of this Agreement, including
without limitation, the provisions of Section 8 (Default and Termination) shall
be subject to this dispute resolution provision.  Notwithstanding anything in
this Section 16.1, this section shall not prohibit either party from immediately
seeking equitable relief in court if it so desires.

     16.2 Except as set forth in Section 16.1, this Agreement shall be governed
by, and construed and enforced in accordance with, the laws of the State of New
York U.S.A. without regard to its provisions concerning conflicts or choice of
law.  The parties consent to the jurisdiction of the courts situated in New York
for the resolution of any disputes as to the construction of this Agreement.

     16.3 Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee acknowledges that its failure
to comply with its obligations under this Agreement could cause immediate and

irreparable harm to Licensor for which money damages would be inadequate.
Accordingly, in the event of Licensee's breach of this Agreement, Licensor may
seek equitable relief, including specific performance of Licensee's obligations
and injunctive relief to prevent Licensee's continued use of the Marks.  Such
remedy shall not be deemed to be the exclusive remedy for breach but shall be in
addition to all other remedies available at law or in equity.

17.  Bankruptcy.
     ---------- 

     All rights and licenses granted under or pursuant to this Agreement by
Licensor are, for purposes of Section 365(n) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code,
licenses of rights to "intellectual property" as defined under Section 101 of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

18.  Severability.
     ------------ 

     Any provision hereof which is invalid or unenforceable shall be ineffective
to the extent of such invalidity or unenforceability, without affecting in any
way the remaining provisions hereof.

19.  Interpretation; Absence of Presumption.
     -------------------------------------- 

     This Agreement shall be construed without regard to any presumption or rule
requiring construction or interpretation against the party drafting or causing
any instrument to be drafted.

                            (CONTINUED ON NEXT PAGE)
