BY CLICKING THE "ACCEPT" BUTTON OR INSTALLING OR USING
THE NETSCAPE 6.2.3 SOFTWARE (THE "PRODUCT"), YOU ARE
CONSENTING TO BE BOUND BY AND BECOME A PARTY TO THIS
AGREEMENT AS THE "LICENSEE."

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF THIS
AGREEMENT, YOU MUST NOT CLICK THE "ACCEPT" BUTTON, YOU
MUST NOT INSTALL OR USE THE PRODUCT, AND YOU DO NOT
BECOME A LICENSEE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT.

1. LICENSE AGREEMENT. As used in this Agreement, for residents of
Europe, the Middle East or Africa, "Netscape" shall mean Netscape
Communications Ireland Limited; for residents of Japan, "Netscape" shall
mean Netscape Communications (Japan), Ltd.; for residents of all other
countries, "Netscape" shall mean Netscape Communications Corporation. In
this Agreement "Licensor" shall mean Netscape except under the following
circumstances: (i) if Licensee acquired the Product as a bundled component of
a third party product or service, then such third party shall be Licensor; and
(ii) if any third party software is included as part of the Product installation
and no license is presented for acceptance the first time that third party
software is invoked, then the use of that third party software shall be governed
by this Agreement, but the term "Licensor," with respect to such third party
software, shall mean the manufacturer of that software and not Netscape.
With the exception of the situation described in (ii) above, the use of any
included third party software product shall be governed by the third party's
license agreement and not by this Agreement, whether that license agreement
is presented for acceptance the first time that the third party software is
invoked, is included in a file in electronic form, or is included in the package
in printed form. If more than one license agreement was provided for the
Product, and the terms vary, the order of precedence of those license
agreements is as follows: a signed agreement, a license agreement available
for review on the Netscape website, a printed or electronic agreement that
states clearly that it supersedes other agreements, a printed agreement
provided with the Product, an electronic agreement provided with the Product.

2. LICENSE GRANT. Licensor grants Licensee a non-exclusive and non-
transferable license to reproduce and use for personal or internal business
purposes the executable code version of the Product, provided any copy must
contain all of the original proprietary notices. This license does not entitle
Licensee to receive from Netscape hard-copy documentation, technical
support, telephone assistance, or enhancements or updates to the Product.

3. RESTRICTIONS. Except as otherwise expressly permitted in this
Agreement, or in another Netscape agreement to which Licensee is a party
such as the Netscape Client Customization Kit License Agreement (the "CCK
License Agreement") or a distribution agreement, such as the Netscape
Browser Distribution Program License Agreement, Licensee may not:
(i) modify or create any derivative works of the Product or documentation,
including customization, translation or localization; (ii) decompile,
disassemble, reverse engineer, or otherwise attempt to derive the source code
for the Product (except to the extent applicable laws specifically prohibit such
restriction or as provided by the Netscape Public License or Mozilla Public
License for portions of the Product governed by those licenses);
(iii) redistribute, encumber, sell, rent, lease, sublicense, or otherwise transfer
rights to the Product; (iv) remove or alter any trademark, logo, copyright or
other proprietary notices, legends, symbols or labels in the Product; or
(v) publish any results of benchmark tests run on the Product to a third party
without Netscape's prior written consent.

4. FEES. There is no license fee for the Product. If Licensee wishes to
receive the Product on media, there may be a small charge for the media and
for shipping and handling. Licensee is responsible for any and all taxes.

5. TERMINATION. Without prejudice to any other rights, Licensor may
terminate this Agreement if Licensee breaches any of its terms and conditions.
Upon termination, Licensee shall destroy all copies of the Product.

6. PROPRIETARY RIGHTS. Title, ownership rights, and intellectual
property rights in the Product shall remain in Netscape and/or its suppliers.

The Product is protected by copyright and other intellectual property laws and
by international treaties. Title and related rights in the content accessed
through the Product are the property of the applicable content owner and are
protected by applicable law. The license granted under this Agreement gives

License (NPL) and the Mozilla Public License (MPL). The source code for
the portions of the Product governed by the NPL and MPL is available from
http://www.mozilla.org under those licenses.

THE NEGLIGENCE OF LICENSOR TO THE EXTENT APPLICABLE
LAW PROHIBITS THE LIMITATION OF DAMAGES IN SUCH CASES.

10. DIGITAL CERTIFICATES. The Product supports certain cryptographic
and authentication features, including but not limited to Secure Sockets Layer
communications, that may require the installation and/or use of a digital
certificate. Digital certificates are issued, validated, and revoked by third-
party certification authorities ("CAs") over which Netscape has no control.
Licensee is solely responsible for familiarizing itself with the terms and
conditions established by a CA for the use of, or reliance upon, its digital
certificates, including but not limited to any obligation of Licensee to validate
a digital certificate, maintain the security of a cryptographic key or password,
or pay fees for certification services. Netscape has preloaded digital
certificates of certain CAs into the Product in order to facilitate the
recognition of digital certificates that such CAs have issued to persons,
organizations, or devices (including software code). LICENSEE IS SOLELY
RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DECISION TO USE OR RELY UPON A
DIGITAL CERTIFICATE, INCLUDING THOSE DIGITAL
CERTIFICATES THAT NETSCAPE HAS PRELOADED INTO THE
PRODUCT. NETSCAPE BEARS NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE
VALIDITY OR ACCURACY OF ANY DIGITAL CERTIFICATE, OR FOR
THE SECURITY OR INTEGRITY OF ANY TRANSACTION OR
COMMUNICATION AUTHENTICATED BY A DIGITAL CERTIFICATE.

import laws and restrictions and regulations of the United States and foreign
countries, and not to export, re-export or import the Product or any direct
product thereof in violation of any such restrictions, laws or regulations, or
without all necessary authorizations. Neither the Product nor the underlying
information or technology may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re-
exported (i) to Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, the
Taliban-controlled areas of Afghanistan, or any other country subject to U.S.
trade sanctions applicable to the Product, to individuals or entities controlled

parties, their successors and permitted assigns. (l) Neither party shall be in
default or be liable for any delay, failure in performance (excepting the
