6.  ENHANCEMENT PROGRAM

Licensee has also purchased a one-year subscription to the eOne Enhancement Program commencing on the date of this Agreement. Under this program, eOne will provide Licensee all updates, upgrades, refinements and added features to the Software that are commercially released by eOne during the subscription period.

Enhancement Programs for any future years, if made available by eOne and purchased by Licensee, shall be made available at the then current eOne list price for such Enhancement Programs. Annual subscriptions to the eOne Enhancement Program are calculated from the commencement date of this Agreement and will be invoiced one-month before the expiration of the current subscription period (“live period”). Such invoices can be levied by an eOne Reseller Partner or by eOne directly, the cost of the Enhancement Program being 17.5% of the then current eOne list price for eOne products subject to this Agreement.

Should eOne not receive payment for renewal of Licensees subscription to the eOne Enhancement Program prior to the expiration of any live period, the following penalties will apply for Licensee’s making late payment or wishing to rejoin the program at a later date:

  • Customers who have lapsed for 1 to 90 days will pay 25% of the current list price, as a one time payment should they wish renew in the Annual Enhancement Program.
  • Customers who have been lapsed for 91 days to one year will pay 30% of the current list price, as a one time payment should they wish to renew in the Annual Enhancement Program.
  • Customers who have been lapsed for more than 1 year will pay 35% of the current list price, as a one time payment should they wish to renew in the Annual Enhancement Program.

Customer AEP dates will change according to the date of payment to eOne. Once a customer payment has been received, that date (payment date) will become the new eOne Enhancement Program date of the customer.

Example:

i.e. 1. A customer has not payed AEP since 1st January 2011 (1-90 days) they will be required to pay 25%, and once payment has been received, ‘that’ date will constitute the customers new AEP date.

i.e. 2. A customer has not payed AEP since 1st June 2010 (91-365 days) they will be required to pay 30%, and once payment has been received, ‘that’ date will constitute the customers new AEP date.

i.e. 3. A customer has not payed AEP since 1st January 2010 (One year plus) they will be required to pay 35%, and once payment has been received, ‘that’ date will constitute the customers new AEP date.

a) enters into a composition with its creditors;

b) enters into any form of voluntary or statutory administration;

c) goes into liquidation; or

d) a receiver, administrator, or statutory manager is appointed in respect of it.

 

The above provision does not in any way restrict eOne’s ability to transfer or assign its rights to any other third party; as such the above provisions only apply to the entity that holds the property rights in the software from time to time.

Licensee accordingly agrees that in the event of such a breach by Licensee, eOne shall be entitled, without giving an undertaking as to damages, to injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent or curtail any actual or threatened default by the Licensee. In addition eOne shall be entitled to such other remedies as may be available at law, including damages
