RECITALS
 
 
Quick-Med and Avery entered into a Joint Development and Exclusive Option Agreement, effective as of April 17, 2009, (the “Joint Development Agreement”) to collaborate on technology developments and applications related to applying NIMBUS® and related antimicrobial technologies to adhesives for medical and other applications.  The Joint Development Agreement gave Avery an option to enter into an exclusive license to use certain patents and know-how owned by Quick-Med and Avery exercised such option.  As a result, Quick-Med is willing to grant Avery such an exclusive license under the terms of this Agreement.
 
 
AGREEMENT
 
 
In consideration of the promises herein, and for good and valuable consideration, the receipt and sufficiency of which are hereby acknowledged, the Parties agree to be bound by the following terms and conditions:
 
1. Definitions; Construction and Interpretation.
 
       1.1 Definitions.  As used in this Agreement, the terms defined in Exhibit A will have the meanings given to those terms therein.  Other capitalized terms used in this Agreement are defined in the context in which they are used and will have the meanings given to them below.
 
      1.2 Construction.  This Agreement together with the Exhibits hereto (all of which are hereby incorporated herein and made a part hereof) constitutes the complete, final and exclusive agreement between the Parties regarding the subject matter hereof and cancels and supersedes all prior or contemporaneous agreements, understandings, and communication, whether written or oral, between the Parties.  Except as expressly provided in this Agreement, neither this Agreement nor any term hereof may be amended, waived, discharged or terminated other than by a written instrument signed by the Party against whom enforcement of any such amendment, waiver, discharge or termination is sought.  The terms on any purchase order or similar document submitted by either Party to the other, and the terms on the web site of either Party, will have no effect on the terms of this Agreement.
 
 
2. License Grant.
 
2.1. License Grant.  Subject to the terms of this Agreement, Quick-Med grants to Avery and its Affiliates a worldwide, exclusive right and license to Use the Licensed Patents Claims and Licensed Know-How in the Field of Use.
 
       2.2. Sublicensing.    Quick-Med hereby grants to Avery during the Term the right to grant sublicenses of the rights granted to Avery to one or more Affiliates or to third parties solely for the right to develop, manufacture and sell the Licensed Products for the purposes set forth in this Agreement.  Each such sublicense shall be subject to written agreement and Avery shall provide Quick-Med with written notice of such sublicense within thirty (30) days following its execution confirming that such sublicense agreement is consistent with the terms of this Agreement and incorporates such terms as required to provide Quick-Med with the same protection and rights provided hereunder.  Avery agrees to use its commercially reasonable efforts to enforce compliance by the sublicensee under each such sublicense agreement.  In the event that Avery grants a sublicense to an Affiliate or a third party for which Avery receives only royalty payments for allowing the sale of Licensed Products (“Royalty Only Payments”), Avery and Quick-Med will negotiate an amendment to this Agreement in good faith to provide for a commercially reasonable, and mutually agreed upon, royalty to Quick-Med for such sublicense in lieu of incorporating such Royalty Only Payments into Net Sales for purposes of calculating the amount of Quick-Med’s royalty under Section 7.2.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Avery and Quick-Med agree to a new royalty for a sublicense of the kind described in the preceding sentence, the Parties acknowledge and agree that: (a) such new royalty amount will be used in calculating whether the Minimum Royalty Amount has been achieved and (b) the amount of the Royalty Only Payments received by Avery from such sublicense will be included in Net Sales for purposes of determining what level of Annual Net Sales has been achieved in the royalties chart in Section 2 of Exhibit C for calculating Quick-Med’s royalty under Section 7.2.  Quick-Med agrees that any information provided by Avery regarding such sublicense(s), including the identity of the sublicensee, the fact that a business relationship exists and all disclosed terms and conditions is Avery Confidential Information and Quick-Med shall treat such Confidential Information in accordance with Section 15 hereof.  Upon termination of this Agreement, any sublicense granted hereunder shall immediately cease and terminate without any additional action by Quick-Med.

2.3. Exclusivity.  The rights and licenses granted to Avery and its Affiliates under Section 2.1 are fully exclusive within the Field of Use for the Licensed Patent Claims and Licensed Know-How, including as to Quick-Med itself, except as provided in Sections 2.4 and 2.5.
 
       2.4. Conditions for Maintaining Exclusivity.   The rights and licenses in Section 2.1 of this Agreement will remain exclusive as long as (a) Avery pays to Quick-Med the Lockout Fees prior to Launch Date and pays the Minimum Royalty Amount after the Launch Date (the Lockout Fees and Minimum Royalty Amount, collectively, the “Minimum Royalty Payments”) as discussed in Section 7 below, and (b) Avery continues to make commercially reasonable efforts after the Launch Date to generate sales of Licensed Product.  If Avery does not pay the Minimum Royalty Payments for a given calendar quarter, Quick-Med may, at any time within 30 days after the end of such quarter provide Avery with 60 days’ notice of Quick-Med’s intention to terminate the exclusivity of the rights and licenses granted to Avery under Section 2.1 (but not the rights and licenses themselves or this Agreement) as a result of such a shortfall.  Avery will thereafter have the opportunity to cure such shortfall within such 60 day notice period by paying the amount of any shortfall to Quick-Med.  If Avery fails to cure such shortfall within the 60 day notice period, the rights and licenses granted to Avery under Section 2.1 (but not the rights and licenses themselves or this Agreement) shall terminate automatically at the end of the 60 days without further notice to Avery.  For the avoidance of doubt, if Quick-Med terminates the exclusivity of the rights and licenses granted to Avery under Section 2.1, the license granted under Section 2.1 will be deemed a non-exclusive license and all other rights in this Agreement will not be affected.
 
2.5. Failure to Meet Minimum Royalty Payments.  In the event Avery fails to pay all of the quarterly Minimum Royalty Payments due in a calendar year but nevertheless makes payments aggregating to at least ***** of the Minimum Royalty Payment amount due in such calendar year, Quick-Med’s sole remedy shall be to terminate the exclusivity of the rights and licenses granted to Avery under Section 2.1 (but not the rights and licenses themselves or this Agreement) and/or Avery’s right of first option under Sections 8.1, 8.2, and/or 8.3 of this Agreement.  Provided further, in the event for a given calendar year Avery fails to make at least ***** of the combined quarterly Minimum Royalty Payments due in the calendar year, Quick-Med’s exclusive remedies (other than collection of earned and unpaid royalties) shall be, at its sole option: (a) termination of this Agreement if Avery does not cure the shortfall within 60 days of receiving written notice from Quick Med or (b) termination of the exclusivity of the rights and licenses granted to Avery under Section 2.1, (but not the rights and licenses themselves or this Agreement) and/or Avery’s right of first option under Sections 8.1, 8.2, and/or 8.3 of this Agreement; provided, however, that if Quick-Med desires to exercise either option, it must do so in writing to Avery within 60 days after the receipt of Avery’s Royalty Report and payment under Exhibit C, section 5.
 
        2.6. Modification to Quick-Med Antimicrobial Technology.  Avery shall not modify, change or vary from the formulation of the Quick-Med Antimicrobial Technology as it is applied to a Licensed Product without first notifying Quick-Med.  If Avery seeks to change or modify the formulation of the Quick-Med Antimicrobial Technology used in a Licensed Product, it shall notify Quick-Med sixty (60) days prior to making such change or modification whereupon, so long as Avery is in compliance with this Agreement, the parties shall reasonably cooperate with Quick-Med to adjust the formulation of the Quick-Med Antimicrobial Technology as necessary to meet the Licensed Product requirements of Avery.

Avery, in its sole discretion, will have the option to have the Initial 510K Application submitted under its name to the FDA.  If Avery fails to submit within ninety (90) days after receipt of the filing from Quick-Med the Initial 510K Application under its own name to the FDA then Quick-Med may submit, pursue, obtain and maintain the Initial 510K Application under Quick-Med’s name. In order to ensure that Quick-Med will have the right to submit, pursue, obtain and maintain the Initial 510K Application with the FDA in the event that Avery chooses not to do so at any point of the FDA regulatory review process in its own name, Avery will deliver an Assignment Agreement of the Initial 501K Application in substantially the form attached hereto as Exhibit E explicitly transferring and conveying all rights and interests of ownership of the pending Initial 510K Application to Quick-Med. In the event that Avery decides not to submit, pursue, maintain or obtain the Initial 510K Application, upon the request of Quick-Med or the FDA, Avery shall execute all customary documents required by the FDA to effectuate the submission and regulatory examination of the Initial 501K Application in the name of Quick-Med. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Quick-Med shall be entitled to file other 510K applications for Quick-Med’s NIMBUS® ***** Technology without limitation.

11.1        Patent Prosecution and Maintenance.  Quick-Med will have the right, in its sole discretion and at its own expense, to control the domestic and foreign preparation, filing, prosecution, and maintenance of the Licensed Patents Claims (and patent applications covering any Licensed Know-How, the Next Generation Antimicrobial Adhesives Technology and Stay Fresh® Technology), and to select all patent counsel or other professionals to advise, represent or act for it in all matters relating to such patent applications and patents.
 
11.2         Patent Prosecution and Maintenance by Avery.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, Quick-Med shall reasonably prepare, file, prosecute and maintain any foreign or domestic Licensed Patents Claims (or foreign or domestic patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How), or file, prosecute and maintain any foreign or domestic Licensed Patents Claims (or foreign or domestic patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How) as requested by Avery.  In the event Quick-Med fails to take any such requested action within a reasonable period of time, Avery may provide Quick-Med with thirty (30) days prior written notice of its intent to take over the preparation, filing, prosecution, and maintenance of any such Licensed Patents (or any such patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How), which shall be at Avery’s cost and expense.   If Quick-Med (a) does not cure its failure to take such requested action within thirty (30) days after receipt by Quick-Med of the written notice from Avery, or (b) where such cure will reasonably require a period beyond 30 days of such receipt of notice and, within 30 days of such receipt of notice, Quick-Med has not commenced such cure and thereafter used diligent efforts to complete such cure, Avery shall be entitled to take over  the preparation, filing, prosecution, and maintenance of any such Licensed Patents (or any such patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How).  In such event, Quick-Med agrees to and hereby grants to Avery the authority to prepare, file, prosecute and maintain any such Licensed Patents (and any such patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How) as deemed commercially reasonable by Avery.  Thereafter, Avery will control the preparation, filing, prosecution, and maintenance of such Licensed Patents Claims (and such patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How) and select all patent counsel or other professionals to advise, represent or act for it in all matters relating to such patent applications and patents.  Quick-Med will provide all necessary and appropriate powers of attorney and other documents and assistance necessary for Avery to undertake such actions. Quick-Med shall be provided with all watching briefs as to such patent prosecutions, and Quick-Med’s comments shall be considered by Avery’s patent counsel during such prosecutions. If Avery pursues such Licensed Patents (or any such patent applications and patents covering any Licensed Know-How), then all patent applications and any patents arising therefrom shall be owned exclusively by Quick-Med and shall be licensed to Avery under the terms of this Agreement.  Reasonable costs of pursuing such patent applications incurred by Avery may be offset against Royalties due to Quick-Med; provided that Avery shall be entitled to offset no more than 50% of Royalties due for each period until such costs have been fully offset by Avery.
 
11.3           Notices.  During the applicable Option Period, Quick-Med will notify Avery promptly upon the conception, discovery, development, or reduction to practice of any Development within the Field of Use that is part of the Next Generation Antimicrobial Adhesives Technology, part of the Stay Fresh® Technology, or part of the Competitive Technology.  Quick-Med will also notify Avery (a) promptly upon the conception, discovery, development, or reduction to practice of any Development that is part of Licensed Know-How under this Agreement (or may become a Licensed Patent Claim under this Agreement), including, without limitation, a complete technical description of such Licensed Know-How or Licensed Patent Client sufficient to allow Avery to practice the best mode of the Development;  (b) at reasonable, regular intervals, or promptly upon any material change in status or Avery’s reasonable request, about the status of any patent applications or patents which are part of the Licensed Patent Claims under this Agreement;  (c) promptly upon the issuance or extension of any Licensed Patent Claims; and (d) promptly as to all matters that come to its attention that may affect the preparation, filing, prosecution, or maintenance of any Licensed Patent Claims and permit Avery to provide comments and suggestions with respect to such activities, which comments and suggestions will be considered by Quick-Med.

12.  Infringement and Misappropriation.
 
12.1 Notice.  Each Party will promptly notify the other Party of any alleged infringement or misappropriation by a third party of any Licensed Patent Claim or Licensed Know-How (“Infringement”) and provide any information available to that Party relating to such alleged Infringement.
 
12.2 Enforcement.  Quick-Med will have the primary right, but not the obligation, to take action in its own name to secure the cessation of any Infringement, or to enter suit against any third party infringing such Licensed Patent Claim or misappropriating such Licensed Know-How.  Any such action will be at Quick-Med’s expense, employing counsel approved by Avery, such approval not to be unreasonably withheld.  If Quick-Med elects to commence such an action, Avery may, to the extent permitted by law, elect to join as a party in that action.  Regardless of whether Avery elects to join as a party, Avery will reasonably cooperate with and assist Quick-Med in connection with any such action to the extent necessary to initiate and maintain the action (e.g., by providing relevant documents, witnesses and testimony, etc.), and Quick-Med will reimburse Avery for any costs and expenses incurred by Avery in providing such cooperation and assistance.  If Avery elects to join as a party, Avery will jointly control the action with Quick-Med at its own expense.  If Quick-Med elects not to exercise its right to bring suit or take other appropriate action in connection with an infringement of the Licensed Patent Claims or misappropriation of the Licensed Know-How or fails to take any such action within 30 days of first receiving notice of such Infringement, Avery may, upon notice to Quick-Med, take any such action at Quick-Med’s expense and control any such action.  In such case, Quick-Med will reasonably cooperate with and assist Avery in connection with any such action to the extent necessary to initiate and maintain it (e.g., by providing relevant documents, witnesses and testimony, etc.).  No settlement, consent, judgment or other voluntary final disposition of the suit may be entered into without the consent of each Party, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.
 
12.3 Allocation of Damages or other Monetary Awards.  Any damages or other monetary awards recovered by a Party taking any such action or bringing any such suit against any such Infringement will be applied first to defray the costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in the action or suit by the Party bringing the action or suit.  Any remaining amounts will second be applied to defray the unreimbursed costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) incurred in such action or suit by the other Party (if any).  Any remaining amounts will third be applied to defray any lost revenue of Avery as a result of any Infringement.  Any remaining balance will be the property of the Party originally bringing such action or suit.
 
13.  Limitation of Liability.  NOTWITHSTANDING ANY OTHER PROVISION OF THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER PARTY WILL BE LIABLE TO THE OTHER FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, PUNITIVE, EXEMPLARY OR SPECIAL DAMAGES, INCLUDING WITHOUT LIMITATION LOST PROFITS OR REVENUE, EVEN IF SUCH PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES.  EACH PARTY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT THE EXCHANGE OF RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS IN THIS AGREEMENT REFLECTS THE ALLOCATION OF RISK SET FORTH IN THIS AGREEMENT AND THAT THE OTHER PARTY WOULD NOT ENTER INTO THIS AGREEMENT WITHOUT THESE LIMITATIONS ON ITS LIABILITY, AND EACH PARTY AGREES THAT THESE LIMITATIONS WILL APPLY NOTWITHSTANDING ANY FAILURE OF ESSENTIAL PURPOSE OF ANY LIMITED REMEDY.
 
14.  Term and Termination.
 
14.1 Term.  This Agreement will begin on the Effective Date and, unless earlier terminated under this Section 14, will continue in full force and effect on a country-by-country basis until all patents, trade secrets, and any other proprietary and legal rights in or to the Licensed Patent Claims and Licensed Know-How have expired or ended.
 
14.2 Termination by Quick-Med. Except as set forth in Section 14.3, the failure by Avery to comply with any of its material obligations contained in this Agreement, shall entitle Quick-Med to give Avery written notice specifying the nature of the default and requiring it to cure such default. If such default is not cured within 60 days after receipt by Avery of written notice from Quick-Med describing such material breach in reasonable detail; or where such cure will reasonably require a period beyond 60 days of such receipt of notice, and Avery has not commenced such cure within 60 days of such receipt of notice and has not used diligent efforts to prosecute such cure to completion, then Quick-Med shall be entitled, without prejudice to any of its other rights conferred on it by this Agreement and in addition to any other remedies available to it by law or in equity, to terminate this Agreement effective upon written notice to Avery. The right of Quick-Med to terminate this Agreement, as hereinabove provided, shall not be affected in any way by its waiver or failure to take action with respect to any previous default.
 
14.3 Avery’s Failure to Pay Minimum Royalties. Quick-Med shall have the termination rights provided in Section 2.5.
 
14.4 Termination by Avery.  This Agreement and the rights and licenses granted herein may be terminated by Avery for any reason or no reason 60 days following written notice by Avery to Quick-Med of Avery’s intent to terminate under this Section 14.4.
 
14.5 Bankruptcy.   A Party may terminate this Agreement immediately by providing written notice if the other Party: (a) applies for or consents to the appointment of a receiver, trustee, liquidator or custodian of itself or of all or a substantial part of its assets, (b) makes a general assignment for the benefit of its creditors, (c) is dissolved or liquidated in full or in substantial part, (d) commences a voluntary case or other proceeding seeking liquidation, reorganization or other relief with respect to itself or its debts under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in effect or consents to such relief or to the appointment of or taking possession of its property by any official in such an involuntary case or such other proceeding commenced against it, (e) takes any action for the purpose of effecting any of the foregoing, and (f) becomes the subject of an involuntary case or other proceeding seeking liquidation, reorganization or other relief with respect to itself or its debts under any bankruptcy, insolvency or other similar law now or hereafter in effect that is not dismissed within ninety (90) days of commencement.
 
14.6 Quick-Med Bankruptcy. All rights and licenses granted under or pursuant to this Agreement by Quick-Med to Avery are for all purposes of Section 365(n) of Title 11, U.S. Code (the “Bankruptcy Code”), licenses of rights to “intellectual property” as defined in the Bankruptcy Code, and all other rights granted to Avery hereunder shall be deemed an agreement supplementary to such licenses.  The parties agree that Avery, as a licensee of such rights under this Agreement, shall retain and may fully exercise all of its rights and elections as licensee, and under all agreements supplementary to such licenses, under the Bankruptcy Code, including without limitation under Section 365(n) thereof, in the event of a rejection of this Agreement by Quick-Med, pursuant to Section 365(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, or during any period prior to such rejection.  Quick-Med agrees during the term of this Agreement to create and maintain current copies or, if not amenable to copying, detailed descriptions or other appropriate embodiments, of all such licensed intellectual property (collectively, the “Embodiments”).  If a case is commenced by or against Quick-Med as a debtor or alleged debtor under the Bankruptcy Code, then, unless and until this Agreement is rejected as provided in the Bankruptcy Code, Quick-Med (in any capacity, including debtor-in-possession) and its successors and assigns (including, without limitation, a Bankruptcy Code trustee) shall either perform all of the obligations provided in this Agreement to be performed by Quick-Med (as an intellectual property license and agreements supplementary to such license under the Bankruptcy Code) or, as “adequate protection” (pursuant to Section 361 of the Bankruptcy Code) of Avery’s interests hereunder (failing which Quick-Med agrees that Avery shall be substantially prejudiced and not adequately protected due to the significant and irreparable losses, not compensable in monetary damages, that Avery shall suffer due to Avery’s inability to gain access to and use the intellectual property licensed hereunder or the Embodiments) provide to Avery all such intellectual property (including all Embodiments) held by Quick-Med and such successors and assigns, and Avery shall be entitled to all rights under any agreement supplementary as Avery may elect in a written request, immediately upon such request.  If a Bankruptcy Code case is commenced by or against Quick-Med as debtor or alleged debtor, this Agreement is rejected as provided in the Bankruptcy Code and Avery elects to retain its rights hereunder (as an intellectual property license and agreements supplementary to such license under the Bankruptcy Code), then Quick-Med (in any capacity, including debtor-in-possession) and its successors and assigns (including, without limitation, a Bankruptcy Code trustee) shall provide to Avery all such rights in and to intellectual property (including all Embodiments), and all rights under agreements (including this Agreement) supplementary to such intellectual property rights held by Quick-Med and such successors and assigns immediately upon Avery’s written request therefor. All rights, powers and remedies of Avery provided under this Section 14.6 are in addition to and not in substitution for any and all other rights, powers and remedies now or hereafter existing at law or in equity (including, without limitation, the Bankruptcy Code) in the event of any such commencement of a bankruptcy proceeding by or against Quick-Med as debtor or alleged debtor.  Avery, in addition to the rights, powers and remedies expressly provided herein, shall be entitled to exercise all other such rights and powers and resort to all other such remedies as may now or hereafter exist at law or in equity (including the Bankruptcy Code) in such event.
 
14.7 Effect of Termination.  Upon termination or expiration of this Agreement, (a) all undisputed Royalties will become due and payable; and (b) each Party will cease use of the other Party’s Licensed Know-How and Confidential Information and will deliver to the other Party all tangible and intangible materials constituting or including the other Party’s Confidential Information.  Termination or expiration of this Agreement will not release either Party from any obligation or liability which will have accrued at the time of termination, or preclude either Party from pursuing all rights at law and in equity with respect to any termination under this Agreement.  The following terms will survive termination of this Agreement:  1, 3, 5, 10, 13, 14, 15 and 16.
 
15.  Confidentiality.  This Agreement is made subject to, and all Confidential Information of the other Party obtained by either Party under this Agreement will be governed by, the terms set forth in Exhibit D.  As of the Effective Date, this Section 15 supersedes all other confidentiality or non-disclosure agreements between the Parties with respect to the subject matter of this Agreement.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, if Avery is actively pursuing a PMA, then the Lockout Fees due under this Exhibit C will be suspended and Avery will not be required to pay any Lockout Fees until such PMA is approved or finally rejected in the United States, or regulatory clearance is obtained within the European Union.  Once such PMA is approved or finally rejected or regulatory clearance is obtained  within the European Union, Avery will be required to pay the Lockout Fees in accordance with the schedule above.  For purposes of clarity, during the time the Lockout Fees are suspended under this paragraph, Avery will have an exclusive license as set forth in Section 2.1 and Quick-Med will not be able to terminate the exclusivity of such license under Section 2.4.
 
After the Launch Date, Avery will not be required to pay any Lockout Fees to maintain the exclusivity of the license granted in this Agreement.

5.           Independent Development.  The terms of confidentiality under this Exhibit D will not be construed to limit either Party’s right to develop independently or acquire products, concepts, systems, processes or techniques without use of the other Party’s Confidential Information.  The Disclosing Party acknowledges that the Receiving Party may develop information internally, or may receive information from other parties, that is similar to the Confidential Information of the Disclosing Party.  Accordingly, nothing in this Exhibit D or in the Agreement will prohibit the Receiving Party from developing or having developed for it products, concepts, systems, processes or techniques that are similar to or compete with the products, concepts, systems, processes or techniques contemplated by or embodied in the Confidential Information provided that the Receiving Party does not violate any of its obligations under this Exhibit D in connection with such development.
