(c) Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, TMS does not grant TiVo any rights or licenses in or to the TMS Licensed Data, the related names and trademarks or associated components, including, without limitation, the content and proprietary systems used by TMS in connection with the TMS Licensed Data. TiVo shall not provide TMS Competitors or any TiVo Licensee, TiVo Subscriber, TiVo Commercial Service recipients, TiVo Commercial Partners, TiVo Non-Subscription Consumers, TiVo Commercial Partner Subscribers, or TiVo Promotional Partner with tables that match TMS Unique IDs with another data provider's IDs; however, TiVo may internally map TMS Unique IDs with another data provider's IDs only to provide the TiVo Service to third parties.

(ii) To the extent they make wording changes to the TMS Licensed Data, such wording changes may not render the TMS Licensed Data inaccurate or alter its fundamental meaning;
(iii) To the extent that they add or combine other data (e.g., UK data overlays, PPV data, TiVo supplied data) with the TMS Licensed Data, they will indicate that any TMS Licensed Data originates from TMS; and
(iv) They will comply with written notice and instructions TMS provides to TiVo for the attribution required by TMS Partner Data suppliers within the TMS Partner Data. For avoidance of doubt, any breach of this provision will not be a sufficient basis for termination unless:
(a) in cases in which the breach occurs in a display in print under TiVo's control, on the Internet under TiVo's control, or in the software run on the TiVo servers (specifically excluding software running on the DVR boxes), TMS has notified TiVo of a breach thereof and TiVo has failed to cure the breach prospectively pursuant to the cure periods set forth in Section 9; or
(b) in all other cases where the breach occurs, (i) TMS has notified TiVo of a breach and TiVo has failed to make good faith efforts to cure the breach prospectively within a reasonable time, and (ii) TMS has no direct recourse available against a TiVo Licensee, TiVo Commercial Partner, or Promotional Partner.

When dealing with Promotional Partners, TiVo will not replace the TMS Licensed Data such Promotional Partner already licenses from TMS with licenses from TiVo for the same data.

TMS reserves the right to cancel or change any TMS Licensed Data product listed on Exhibit A or developed under this Agreement as a TiVo Development Initiative Product or New Development Product, provided, however, that if TMS does so, then (i) TMS at its sole discretion, must either substitute substantially identical data in substantially the same form and format or reduce on a pro rata basis the fees payable by TiVo for such unavailable elements of TMS Licensed Data, in accordance with the current TMS rate card and refund TiVo the development fees paid by TiVo, if any, for a cancelled TiVo Development Initiative Product; and (ii) TiVo has the right to terminate the Agreement if the TMS Licensed Data is changed materially in that it affects a core feature or functionality of the TiVo Service (“Material Change”). TMS shall give TiVo [*] prior written notice of any anticipated changes in a TMS Licensed Data product that TMS reasonably

(f) TiVo Requests for Operational Support Improvements and Services.

The parties will negotiate in good faith any changes to the [*] set forth in this Section 6. In the event that TMS reasonably deems such display likely to confuse consumers, TiVo shall revise the display layout such that it eliminates such likelihood of confusion, at the written request of TMS; in the event of such revision, TMS will forego any legal claims against TiVo arising out of the display prior to revision. TMS waives, for purposes of this Agreement only, any claim or complaint that the design in Exhibit D is likely to cause confusion.

TiVo may terminate this Agreement in the case of [*] provided that TiVo has given TMS written notice of such breach, and there is no cure within [*] from the date of such notice.
(a) By TMS. TMS shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless TiVo and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents from and against any and all third party claims, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable out-of-pocket attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to any allegation that the TMS Licensed Data, TMS Data Products, or TMS Services, as provided by TMS or modified with TMS' consent or at TMS' direction, infringes or otherwise violates any third party's patent, trademark, copyright, trade secret, right of publicity, or other intellectual property or personal right; except, however, to the extent that such allegation arises out of any edits, modifications or alterations TiVo (or any TiVo Licensee, TiVo Commercial Partner, or TiVo Promotional Partner) makes to the TMS Licensed Data beyond those permitted in section 3(d) without TMS' written consent. If TMS believes that a claim of infringement is likely, then TMS may modify the Allegedly Infringing TMS Licensed Data so that a claim of infringement is no longer likely.

TiVo shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless TMS and its officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents from and against any and all third party claims, damages, costs and expenses (including reasonable out-of-pocket attorneys' fees) arising out of or relating to: any suits or actions alleging that any electronic product or service (including the TiVo Service and TiVo Commercial Service) in which TiVo or a TiVo Commercial Partner uses or incorporates the TMS Licensed Data (an “Allegedly Infringing TiVo Service”), or that any edits, modifications or alterations beyond those permitted in section 3(d) without TMS' written consent, infringes or otherwise violates any third party's patent, trade secret, copyright, trademark or other intellectual property right. If TiVo believes that a claim of infringement is likely, then TiVo may modify or cause the TiVo Commercial Partner to modify the Allegedly Infringing TiVo Service so that a claim of infringement is no longer likely. If TiVo receives written notice of an alleged infringement, then TiVo may: (i) modify or cause the TiVo Commercial Partner to modify the Allegedly Infringing TiVo Service so that it no longer infringes, or (ii) if such modifications cannot be obtained using commercially reasonable efforts and on commercially reasonable terms, terminate this Agreement upon notice to TMS.
(c) General. Any indemnification provided under this Agreement is conditioned upon (i) the indemnitee
providing the indemnitor with prompt written notice of any claim, provided, however, that failure to provide prompt notice does not relieve the indemnitor of its indemnification obligations unless such failure materially prejudices the defense of such claim;
(ii) the indemnitee permitting the indemnitor to assume and control the defense and settlement of such claim; and (iii) the indemnitee fully cooperating in the defense or settlement of such claim. The indemnification provisions of this Agreement survive expiration or termination of this Agreement.
11. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY.
(a) TiVo acknowledges TMS' assertion that the TMS Licensed Data is produced by TMS in good faith from information compiled and supplied by unrelated third parties. EXCEPT AS PROVIDED IN SECTION 8 (Data Quality), TMS PROVIDES THE TMS LICENSED DATA ON AN “AS IS” BASIS, MAKES NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTIES REGARDING THE TMS LICENSED DATA, AND DISCLAIMS ALL WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR ANY PARTICULAR PURPOSE. TIVO'S DAMAGES FOR BREACHES OF SECTION 8 SHALL BE CAPPED AT [*] THE FEES PAYABLE BY TIVO DURING THE PRECEDING TWELVE MONTHS UNDER THIS AGREEMENT OR THE PRECEDING AGREEMENT HAVING AN EFFECTIVE DATE OF MARCH 1, 2004 FOR THE NONCOMPLIANT DATA.
(b) TMS will not be liable for any loss or damage accruing to TiVo by reason of non-delivery, delay or interruption in delivery of TMS Licensed Data due to circumstances beyond the control of TMS, which shall include without limitation, failure of communication equipment.

(c) EXCEPT FOR INTENTIONAL MISCONDUCT OR GROSS NEGLIGENCE OR PURSUANT TO THEIR RESPECTIVE INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, IN NO EVENT WILL TMS OR TIVO BE LIABLE FOR INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR LOST-PROFIT DAMAGES UNLESS LOST PROFITS ARE PROVEN AS ACTUAL DAMAGES.
12. PROPRIETARY INTEREST. TiVo acknowledges that, as between TiVo and TMS, TMS owns all copyrights and other proprietary rights in and to the TMS Licensed Data. TiVo does not, by virtue of this Agreement or by virtue of its access to the TMS Licensed Data, obtain any copyright or other proprietary right or interest in or to the TMS Licensed Data except the rights specifically granted to TiVo herein.
13. CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS.
(a) Confidential Information. During the Term of this Agreement, each party may receive Confidential Information (as hereinafter defined) belonging to the other party (the “disclosing party”) and may not use such Confidential Information except as set forth in this Agreement. Each receiving party shall disclose Confidential Information of the disclosing party only to its employees or agents who are required to have such information for the receiving party to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement and who have been advised of the obligations set forth in this Section 13. The receiving party shall promptly notify the disclosing party of any actual or suspected misuse or unauthorized disclosure of the disclosing
party's Confidential Information. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” of a disclosing party means any information or material that the other party designates as confidential (including without limitation the terms and conditions of this Agreement) unless such information or material (i) is or becomes publicly known through no wrongful act of the receiving party, (ii) is received from a third party without restriction and without breach of any confidentiality obligation to the other party, or (iii) is independently developed by the receiving party without any use of the Confidential Information, as demonstrated by files created as of the time of such independent development.
(b) Compelled Disclosures. If a receiving party is compelled by law, regulation or a court of competent jurisdiction to disclose any of the other party's Confidential Information, the receiving party will promptly notify the disclosing party so that it may seek a protective order or other appropriate remedy.
The receiving party agrees to cooperate at the disclosing party's expense in seeking such order or other remedy. If disclosure is ultimately required, the receiving party will furnish only that portion of the Confidential Information that is legally required, exercise reasonable efforts to obtain assurance that it will receive confidential treatment, and continue to treat such Confidential Information in accordance with this Section 13.
(c) Confidentiality of Agreement. Each party agrees that the terms and conditions of this Agreement will be treated as the other party's Confidential Information; provided, however, that each party may disclose the terms and conditions of this Agreement: (i) as required by any court or other governmental body; (ii) as otherwise required by applicable law; (iii) to legal counsel of the parties; (iv) pursuant to the rules and regulations of any stock association or exchange on which the party's stock is traded; (v) in confidence, to accountants, banks, and financing sources and their advisors; (vi) in confidence, in connection with the enforcement of this Agreement or rights under this Agreement; or (vii) in confidence, in connection with a merger or acquisition of one of the parties or proposed merger or acquisition of one of the parties. Neither party shall issue any statement or communication to any third party (other than their respective agents) regarding the subject matter of this Agreement, including, if applicable, the termination of this Agreement and the reasons therefor, without the consent of the other party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld, except that this restriction is subject to the parties' obligations to comply with applicable securities laws (and in such event each party must use reasonable efforts to provide the other party with a copy of any such statement or communication in advance of such issuance). For the purpose of clarity, the parties may disclose in confidence the terms, conditions and existence of this Agreement to any third parties as necessary to fulfill their respective obligations, and exercise their respective rights under this Agreement. If TiVo uses a third party with whom it needs to share Confidential Information for development purposes, TiVo will require that the third party be subject to the same terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement.
(d) With TMS Competitors, TiVo may not [*]. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TiVo is free to: (i) offer opinions about the TMS Licensed Data, (ii) share TMS Confidential Information with [*], or another [*], only to the extent necessary to facilitate integration of the TiVo Service, and (iii) share TiVo Service specifications regarding data needs.

Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement for reasons other than nonpayment or TiVo's breach of its license grant restriction or under Section 10(a)(i) and 10(a)(ii), TMS will continue to provide TiVo with TMS Licensed Data at TiVo's written request at the rates specified in this Agreement and in accordance with the terms and conditions of this Agreement, for [*] following such termination or expiration. Subject to the other terms and conditions of this Agreement, in particular Section 13 (Confidentiality), TiVo may, during such wind-down period, map TMS Unique IDs with another data
provider's IDs for the purpose of transitioning to such data provider as a substitute for the supply of TMS Licensed Data.
(b) Termination of Rights. On termination or expiration of this Agreement: (i) all rights granted by TMS under this Agreement (except for Section 14(a), as applicable, or the survival provisions set forth in Section 20 as applicable) shall immediately terminate, (ii) within [*] after such termination, TiVo shall [*]; (iii) once [*] have passed from such termination, TiVo will [*]; and (iv) TiVo shall, [*] after such termination, return to TMS any software or other materials provided by TMS under this Agreement or certify that TiVo has destroyed such materials.

15. GOVERNING LAW; VENUE. This Agreement is governed by and interpreted under the laws of the state of Illinois, excluding Illinois' choice of law rules. Any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement must be brought exclusively in the state or federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois. Both parties hereby irrevocably consent to jurisdiction and venue in the state and federal courts located in Chicago, Illinois for purposes of any suit, action or proceeding arising out of or relating to this Agreement.
16. ASSIGNMENT. Neither party is allowed to assign its rights under this Agreement without the other party's written consent, except in the event of a change of ownership or change of Control of either party, including without limitation by way of merger, consolidation or sale of all or substantially all of the assets or equity of the party or of the parent or ultimate parent entity of such party (“a Change of Control”), in which case no such consent shall be required; provided however in the event of such change in Control resulting in ownership or control of TiVo by a company on Exhibit F or of TMS by a company on Exhibit E, the other party may immediately terminate this Agreement. At any time during the Term, TMS may add one or more companies to Exhibit F if the company meets the definition of “Subsequent Competitor” as defined in Section 1(m); for the sake of clarity, additions to Exhibit F by TMS will not affect any other provisions of this Agreement except this Section 16. TiVo may add one or more companies to Exhibit E at any time during the Term if the company meets the criteria defined further below. Each party's rights and obligations pursuant to this Agreement and any amendments thereof will bind and inure to the benefit of such party's permitted successors or assignees.
In the event TMS terminates this Agreement pursuant to Section 16, such termination shall not take effect until one year after the close of such Change of Control transaction (the “Transition Period”), or sooner if TiVo notifies TMS that it no longer desires to use TMS data for mapping during the Transition Period. During this Transition Period, TMS will allow mapping as provided in paragraph 14(a), except that that mapping period will be for 365 days, provided that during this time TiVo will maintain its confidentiality obligations by creating confidentiality procedures such that the newly controlling or owning party shall be treated as a TMS Competitor for purposes of paragraph 13(d). During the Transition Period, TMS shall continue to license to TiVo only the TMS Licensed Data that TiVo is licensing on the date of termination notice. Once TMS notifies TiVo of termination, all Section 8 development initiatives shall cease. At the end of the Transition Period, TiVo will purge all TMS Licensed Data and provide TMS with reasonable proof of such destruction to TMS.
TiVo can name as an additional company on Exhibit E only companies that meet one or more of the following criteria: (i) [*]; or (v) any entity controlling, controlled by or under common control with any of the companies named on Exhibit E.
17. PUBLICITY. TMS has the right to use the name of TiVo in publicity, advertising, and sales promotion with the prior written consent of TiVo, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. Notwithstanding the foregoing, TMS will not be required to obtain TiVo's prior written consent to include TiVo's name in public lists of TMS clients.
18. NO JOINT VENTURE CREATED. Nothing in this Agreement and its performance may be construed as creating a joint venture, partnership or agency between TiVo and TMS.
19. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This Agreement and its Exhibits contain the entire understandings of TMS and TiVo concerning the subject matter hereof, and supersede and cancel all prior understandings, agreements, representations (whether oral or written) between TMS and TiVo regarding the subject matter hereof, including the Television Listings Data Agreement dated March 1, 2004 and any amendments and addenda thereto, as well as the original Agreement on May 14, 2007 and the amendment of November 15, 2007 and the First Amendment entered into as of June 1, 2009. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (i) the Letter Agreement effective March 23, 2010 concerning Gracenote DVD Cover Art independently survives this Agreement and will continue to apply in reference to this Agreement, and (ii) all other letter agreements or development initiative agreements between the parties, including by way of example, the Letter Agreement of October 1, 2009 with TMS and Blockbuster Inc., shall carry forward in full force and effect. In the event of a conflict between the provisions of this Agreement and any exhibits hereto, the terms of this Agreement prevail. Neither party is bound by, and each party specifically objects to, any term, condition or other provision that is different from or in addition to the provisions of this Agreement (whether or not it would materially alter this Agreement) and which is proffered by the other party in any correspondence or other document, unless the party to be bound thereby specifically agrees to such provision in writing. This Agreement may only be amended by a subsequent writing signed by an authorized representative of TMS and TiVo.
20. SURVIVAL. Notwithstanding anything contained herein to the contrary, Sections 7, 10 through 15 and 19 through 22 and any other provision for which survival is equitable will survive any termination or expiration of this Agreement.
21. WAIVER. Neither the failure of either party to insist upon or enforce strict performance by the other party of any provision of this Agreement or the failure, delay or omission by either party in exercising any right with respect to any term of this Agreement, will be construed as a waiver or relinquishment to any extent of either party's right to assert or rely upon any such provision or right in that or any other instance.
22. FORCE MAJEURE. Neither party shall be liable for failing or delaying performance of its obligations resulting from any condition beyond its reasonable control, including but not limited to, governmental action, acts of terrorism, earthquake, fire, flood or other acts of God, labor conditions, power failures, and Internet disturbances.
In Witness Whereof, the undersigned have executed this Agreement on the dates indicated.
