Section 2.03 License. Secured Party is hereby granted a non-exclusive license or other right to use, following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, without charge, Debtor’s labels, patents, copyrights, rights of use of any name, trade secrets, trade names, trademarks, service marks, customer lists and advertising matter, or any property of a similar nature, as it pertains to the Collateral, in completing production of, advertising for sale, and selling any Collateral, and, following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, Debtor’s rights under all licenses and all franchise agreements shall inure to Secured Party’s benefit to the extent assignable and to the extent Debtor has such rights. In addition, Debtor hereby irrevocably agrees that Secured Party may, following the occurrence and during the continuance of an Event of Default, sell any of Debtor’s inventory directly to any Person, including without limitation Persons who have previously purchased Debtor’s inventory from Debtor and in connection with any such sale or other enforcement of Secured Party’s rights under this Security Agreement, may sell inventory which bears any trademark owned by or licensed to Debtor and any inventory that is covered by any copyright owned by or licensed to Debtor and Secured Party may finish any work in process and affix any trademark owned by or licensed to Debtor and sell such inventory as provided herein.

Section 3.08 Status of Instruments. Each Instrument now existing is, and each Instrument hereafter will be, the valid and legally enforceable indebtedness of a bona fide maker thereof for good and valuable consideration, of which a Debtor is the owner and holder, and is not and will not be subject to set-offs, counterclaims or defenses by any maker except as disclosed to Secured Party in writing; and the amount shown on the relevant Debtor’s books in respect thereof will be the true amount owing (unless otherwise identified in writing to Secured Party) and unpaid thereon.

A deviation from the provisions of this Article IV shall not constitute an event of default under this Security Agreement if, prior to the occurrence thereof, such deviation is consented to in writing by Secured Party. Without the prior written consent of Secured Party, Debtor will at all times comply with the covenants contained in this Article IV, from the date hereof and for so long as any part of the Indebtedness (other than contingent indemnification obligations) is outstanding.

Section 4.06 [Reserved].
Section 4.07 Compromise of Collateral. Debtor will not adjust, settle, compromise, release (wholly or partially) any account debtor or obligor with respect to, or allow any credit (other than proceeds subject to Section 4.09(c) hereof) or discount with respect to any of the Collateral without the prior written consent of Secured Party, except in the ordinary course of business.
Section 4.08 Account Obligations. Debtor will duly perform or cause to be performed all obligations of Debtor with respect to the goods or services, the sale or lease or rendition of which gave rise or will give rise to each Account or Instrument.
Section 4.09 Collection and Enforcement of Accounts, General Intangibles and Related Rights.
(a) Except as otherwise provided in Section 4.09(b) hereof, Debtor shall continue to collect, at its own expense, all amounts due or to become due to Debtor with respect to the Accounts, General Intangibles, Instruments and Related Rights in accordance with the provisions of the Agreement. In connection with such collections, Debtor may take (and, following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, at Secured Party’s direction, shall take) such action as Debtor or Secured Party may deem necessary or advisable to enforce collection of the Accounts, General Intangibles and Related Rights.
(b) Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 4.09(a) hereof, Secured Party shall have the right at any time and from time to time, whether with or without written notice to Debtor of its intention to do so, following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, to contact account debtors or obligors under any or all of the Accounts, General Intangibles, Instruments or Related Rights in order to verify information about Debtor’s accounts, to notify such account debtors or obligors of the assignment and security interest of Secured Party in such Accounts, General Intangibles, Instruments or Related Rights and to direct such account debtors or obligors to make payment of all amounts due or to become due Debtor thereunder directly to Secured Party. Upon exercising such right following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Secured Party may additionally, at the expense of Debtor, enforce collection of any or all of the Accounts, General Intangibles, Instruments and Related Rights and may adjust, settle or compromise the amount or payment thereof, in the same manner and to the same extent as Debtor might have done.
(c) During the term of the Agreement, (i) all amounts and proceeds (including chattel paper, notes and instruments) received by Debtor in respect of the Accounts, General Intangibles, Instruments and Related Rights (1) collected and deposited in a deposit account of Debtor as required under the Agreement; and (ii) upon notice by Secured Party to Debtor that Secured Party either intends to exercise the rights and remedies granted in Section 4.09(b) hereof following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default or that it has so exercised one or more of the rights or remedies granted to it in Section 4.09(b) hereof, as the case may be (it being understood and agreed that the foregoing shall not in any fashion require the Secured Party to give notice of its intent to exercise, or its exercise of, the right and remedies granted to it in Section 4.09(b) hereof), Debtor shall forthwith deliver to Secured Party, to be maintained under the control of Secured Party, the Books and Records relating to the Accounts, the General Intangibles, the Instruments and the Related Rights for the purpose of enabling Secured Party to exercise its rights and remedies under this Security Agreement.
Section 4.10 Proceeds. To the extent required under the Agreement, Debtor will deliver to Secured Party promptly upon receipt, all proceeds received by Debtor from the sale or other disposition of the Collateral in the exact form in which they are received, or in such other form as Secured Party may from time to time direct. To evidence Secured Party’s rights in this regard, following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Debtor will assign or endorse proceeds to Secured Party as Secured Party requests. Upon request of Secured Party following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Debtor will notify obligors on all of the Collateral to make payments directly to Secured Party, and Secured Party may endorse as Debtor’s agent any checks, instruments, chattel paper or other documents connected with the Collateral, take control of proceeds of the Collateral and may hold the proceeds as part of the Collateral and may use cash proceeds to reduce any part of the Indebtedness, or otherwise, and take any action necessary to obtain, preserve and enforce the security interests and liens granted hereunder and maintain and preserve the Collateral.
RIGHTS AND REMEDIES
Section 5.01 With Respect to Collateral. Following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Secured Party is hereby fully authorized and empowered (without necessity of any further consent or authorization from Debtor) and the right is expressly granted to Secured Party, and Debtor hereby constitutes, irrevocably appoints and makes Secured Party Debtor’s true and lawful attorney-in-fact and agent for Debtor and in Debtor’s name, place and stead, which appointment is coupled with an interest in the Collateral, with full power of substitution, in Secured Party’s name or Debtor’s name or otherwise, for Secured Party’s sole use and benefit, but at Debtor’s cost and expense, to exercise without notice, all or any of the following powers at any time with respect to all or any of the Collateral:
(a) to demand, sue for, collect, receive and give acquittance for any and all monies due or to become due by virtue thereof and otherwise deal with proceeds;
(b) to receive, take, endorse, assign and deliver any and all checks, notes, drafts, documents and other negotiable and nonnegotiable instruments and chattel paper taken or received by Secured Party in connection therewith;
(c) to settle, compromise, compound, prosecute or defend any action or proceeding with respect thereto;
(d) to sell, transfer, assign or otherwise deal in or with the same or the proceeds or avails thereof or the relative goods, as fully and effectually as if Secured Party were the absolute owner thereof;
(e) to extend the time of payment of any or all thereof and to grant waivers and make any allowance or other adjustment with reference thereto; and
(f) to enter any post office box and take all items therefrom, to open the same and, after taking all remittances, to return any remaining items to Debtor and to change any post office box to any address or post office box Secured Party chooses;
provided, however, that Secured Party shall be under no obligation or duty to exercise any of the powers hereby conferred upon it and shall be without liability for any act or failure to act in connection with the collection of, or the preservation of any rights under, any Collateral.
Section 5.02 [Reserved].
Section 5.03 Default, Events. At the option of Secured Party and without necessity of demand or notice, all or any part of the Indebtedness shall immediately become due and payable irrespective of any agreed maturity and any obligation of Secured Party for further financial accommodation shall terminate upon the happening of any “Event of Default” under the Agreement.
Section 5.04 Default, Remedies. If all or any part of the Indebtedness shall become due and payable as specified in Section 5.03 hereof following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, Secured Party may then, or at any time thereafter apply, set off, sell in one or more sales, lease or otherwise dispose of, any or all of the Collateral, in its then condition or following any commercially reasonable preparation or processing, in such order as Secured Party may elect, and any such sale may be made either at public or private sale at its place of business or elsewhere, either for cash or upon credit or for future delivery, at such price as Secured Party may reasonably deem fair, and Secured Party may be the purchaser of any or all Collateral so sold and hold the same thereafter in its own right free from any claim of Debtor or right of redemption. No such purchase or holding by Secured Party shall be deemed a retention by Secured Party in satisfaction of the Indebtedness. All demands, notices and advertisements, and the presentment of property at sale, are hereby waived. If, notwithstanding the foregoing provisions, any applicable provision of the Code or other law requires Secured Party to give reasonable notice of any such sale or disposition or other action, Debtor agrees that TEN (10) days’ prior written notice shall constitute reasonable notice. Secured Party may require Debtor to assemble the Collateral and make it available to Secured Party at a place designated by Secured Party which is reasonably convenient to Secured Party and Debtor. Any sale hereunder may be conducted by an auctioneer or any officer or agent of Secured Party.
Section 5.05 Proceeds. The proceeds of any sale or other disposition of the Collateral and all sums received or collected by Secured Party from or on account of the Collateral shall be applied by Secured Party in the manner set forth in Section 9.615 of the Code as presently in effect.
Section 5.06 Deficiency. Debtor shall remain liable to Secured Party for any Indebtedness, advances, costs, charges and expenses, together with interest thereon remaining unpaid and upon demand following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default, shall pay the same immediately to Secured Party at Secured Party’s offices.
Section 5.07 Secured Party’s Duties. The powers and remedies conferred upon Secured Party by this Security Agreement are solely to protect its interest in the Collateral and shall not impose any duty upon Secured Party to exercise any such power or remedy except as required by applicable law. Secured Party shall be under no duty whatsoever to make or give any presentment, demand for performance, notice of nonperformance, protest, notice of protest, notice of dishonor, or other notice or demand in connection with the Collateral or the Indebtedness, or to take any steps necessary to preserve any rights against prior parties. Secured Party shall not be liable for failure to collect or realize upon any or all of the Indebtedness or Collateral, or for any delay in so doing, nor shall Secured Party be under any duty to take any action whatsoever with regard thereto. Secured Party shall use reasonable care in the custody and preservation of any Collateral in its possession but need not take any steps to keep the Collateral identifiable. Secured Party shall have no duty to comply with any recording, filing or other legal requirements necessary to establish or maintain the validity, priority or enforceability of, or Secured Party’s rights in or to, any of the Collateral.
Section 5.08 Secured Party’s Actions. Debtor waives any right to require Secured Party to proceed against any Person, exhaust any Collateral, or have any Other Liable Party joined with Debtor in any suit arising out of the Indebtedness or this Security Agreement or pursue any other remedy in Secured Party’s power; waives any and all notice of acceptance of this Security Agreement or of creation, modification, renewal or extension for any period of any of the Indebtedness from time to time; and waives any defense arising by reason of any disability or other defense of Debtor or of any Other Liable Party, or by reason of the cessation from any cause whatsoever of the liability of Debtor or of any Other Liable Party. All dealings between Debtor and Secured Party, whether or not resulting in the creation of Indebtedness, shall conclusively be presumed to have been had or consummated in reliance upon this Agreement. Until all Indebtedness shall have been indefeasibly paid in full, Debtor shall not have any right to subrogation, and Debtor waives any right to enforce any remedy which Secured Party now has or may hereafter have against Debtor or any Other Liable Party and waives any benefit of and any right to participate in any Collateral or security whatsoever now or hereafter held by Secured Party. Debtor authorizes Secured Party, without notice or demand and without any reservation of rights against Debtor and without affecting Debtor’s liability hereunder or on the Indebtedness, from time to time to (a) take and hold any other Property as collateral, other than the Collateral, for the payment of any or all of the Indebtedness, and exchange, enforce, waive and release any or all of the Collateral or such other Property; (b) following the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event of Default apply the Collateral or such other Property and direct the order or manner of sale thereof as Secured Party in its discretion may determine; (c) renew and/or extend for any period, accelerate, modify, compromise, settle or release the obligation of Debtor or any Other Liable Party with respect to any or all of the Indebtedness or Collateral; and (d) release or substitute Debtor or any Other Liable Party. “Other Liable Party” shall mean any Person other than Debtor, primarily or secondarily liable for any of the Indebtedness or who grants Secured Party a lien upon and/or a security interest on any Property as security for any of the Indebtedness.
Section 5.09 [Reserved].
Section 5.10 Cumulative Security. The execution and delivery of this Security Agreement in no manner shall impair or affect any other security (by endorsement or otherwise) for the payment of the Indebtedness. No security taken hereafter as security for payment of the Indebtedness shall impair in any manner or affect this Security Agreement. All such present and future additional security is to be considered as cumulative security.
Section 5.11 Continuing Agreement. This is a continuing agreement and all the rights, powers and remedies of Secured Party hereunder shall continue to exist until the Indebtedness (other than contingent indemnification obligations) is indefeasibly paid in full as the same becomes due and payable; until Secured Party has no further obligation to advance monies to Debtor or any Other Liable Party. Furthermore, it is contemplated by the parties hereto that there may be times when no Indebtedness is owing; but notwithstanding such occurrence, this Security Agreement shall remain valid and shall be in full force and effect as to subsequent Indebtedness; provided that Secured Party has not executed a written termination statement. Otherwise this Security Agreement shall continue irrespective of the fact that the personal liability of any Other Liable Party may have ceased, and notwithstanding the bankruptcy or incapacity of Debtor or the death, incapacity or bankruptcy of any Other Liable Party or any other event or proceeding affecting Debtor or Other Liable Party.
Section 5.12 Cumulative Rights. The rights, powers and remedies of Secured Party hereunder shall be in addition to all rights, powers and remedies given by statute or rule of law and are cumulative. The exercise of any one or more of the rights, powers and remedies provided herein shall not be construed as a waiver of any of the other rights, powers and remedies of Secured Party. Furthermore, regardless of whether or not the Uniform Commercial Code is in effect in the jurisdiction where such rights, powers and remedies are asserted, Secured Party shall have the rights, powers and remedies of a secured party under the Code, as amended.
Section 5.13 Exercise of Right. Time shall be of the essence for the performance of any act under this Security Agreement or the Indebtedness by Debtor or any Other Liable Party, but neither Secured Party’s acceptance of partial or delinquent payment nor any forbearance, failure or delay by Secured Party in exercising any right, power or remedy shall be deemed a waiver of any obligation of Debtor or any Other Liable Party or of any right, power or remedy of Secured Party or preclude any other or further exercise thereof; and no single or partial exercise of any right, power or remedy shall preclude any other or further exercise thereof, or of the exercise of any other right, power or remedy.
Section 5.14 Remedy and Waiver. Secured Party may remedy any default and may waive any default without waiving the default remedied or waiving any prior or subsequent default.
Section 5.15 Non-Judicial Remedies. Secured Party may enforce its rights hereunder without resort to prior judicial process or judicial hearing, and Debtor expressly waives, renounces and knowingly relinquishes any and all legal rights which might otherwise require Secured Party to enforce its rights by judicial process. In so providing for non-judicial remedies, Debtor recognizes and concedes that such remedies are consistent with the usage of the trade, are responsive to commercial necessity and are the result of bargaining at arm’s length. Nothing herein is intended to prevent Secured Party or Debtor from resorting to judicial process at either party’s option.
