1. SUPPLIER shall retain a nonexclusive, royalty-free license throughout the world in each Subject Invention to which the Government obtains title, except if Pfizer fails to disclose the invention within the times specified in paragraph C of this Article. The SUPPLIER license extends to all subsidiaries and affiliates, if any, within the corporate structure of which SUPPLIER is a party and includes the right to grant licenses of the same scope to the extent permitted under U.S. Law and regulations. The license is transferable only with the approval of DARPA, approval for license transfer shall not be unreasonably withheld.

The foregoing SUPPLIER license may be revoked or modified as to a specific Government Purpose use by the Government to the extent necessary to achieve expeditious practical application of the Subject Invention pursuant to an application for an exclusive license submitted consistent with appropriate provisions at 37 CFR Part 404. SUPPLIER shall retain a nonexclusive, non-transferrable (other than to a successor) license in all fields of use other than the specific Government Purpose use that DARPA revokes or modifies. Further, this license shall not be revoked in that field of use or the geographical areas in which SUPPLIER has achieved practical application and continues to make the benefits of the invention reasonably accessible to the public. The license in any foreign country may be revoked or modified at the discretion of DARPA to the extent SUPPLIER, its licensees, or the subsidiaries or affiliates have failed to achieve practical application in that foreign country.
3. Before revocation or modification of the license, DARPA shall furnish SUPPLIER a written notice of its intention to revoke or modify the license, and SUPPLIER shall be allowed thirty (30) calendar days (or such other time as may be authorized by DARPA for good cause shown) after the notice to show cause why the license should not be revoked or modified.
F. Action to Protect the Government’s Interest
1. SUPPLIER agrees to execute or to have executed and promptly deliver to DARPA all instruments necessary to (i) establish or confirm the rights the Government has throughout the world in those Subject Inventions to which SUPPLIER elects to retain title, and (ii) convey title to DARPA when requested under paragraph D of this Article and enable the Government to obtain patent protection throughout the world in that subject invention.
2. SUPPLIER agrees to require, by written agreement, its employees, other than clerical and non-technical employees, to disclose promptly in writing to personnel identified as responsible for the administration of patent matters and in a format suggested by SUPPLIER each Subject Invention made under this Purchase Order, so that SUPPLIER can comply with the disclosure provisions of paragraph C of this Article. SUPPLIER shall instruct employees, through employee agreements or other suitable educational programs, on the importance of reporting inventions in sufficient time to permit the filing of patent applications prior to U. S. or foreign statutory bars and to preserve the Government’s Interest in the Subject Invention.

To the extent any such reporting cannot be carried out by use of iEdison, reports and communications shall be submitted to the Agreements Officer and Administrative Agreements Officer.
I. Preference for American Industry
Notwithstanding any other provision of this clause, SUPPLIER agrees that it shall not grant to any person other than SUPPLIER Affiliates the exclusive right to use or sell any Subject Invention in the United States or Canada unless such person agrees that any product embodying the Subject Invention or produced through the use of the Subject Invention shall be manufactured substantially in the United States or Canada. However, in individual cases, the requirements for such an agreement may be waived by DARPA upon a showing by SUPPLIER that reasonable but unsuccessful efforts have been made to grant licenses on similar terms to potential licensees that would be likely to manufacture substantially in the United States or that, under the circumstances, domestic manufacture is not commercially feasible.
J. March-in Rights
SUPPLIER agrees that, with respect to any Subject Invention in which it has retained title, DARPA has the right to require SUPPLIER, an assignee, or exclusive licensee of a Subject Invention to grant a non-exclusive license to a responsible applicant or applicants, upon terms that are reasonable under the circumstances, and if SUPPLIER, assignee, or exclusive licensee refuses such a request, DARPA has the right to grant such a license itself if DARPA determines that:
1. Such action is necessary because SUPPLIER or assignee has not taken effective steps, consistent with the intent of this Purchase Order, to achieve practical application of the Subject Invention;
2. Such action is necessary to alleviate health or safety needs which are not reasonably satisfied by SUPPLIER, assignee, or their licensees;
3. Such action is necessary to meet requirements for public use and such requirements are not reasonably satisfied by SUPPLIER, assignee, or licensees; or
4. Such action is necessary because the agreement required by paragraph (I) of this Article has not been obtained or waived or because a licensee of the exclusive right to use or sell any Subject Invention in the United States is in breach of such agreement. SUPPLIER and DARPA agree that the procedures set forth at 37 CFR 401.6 shall govern the exercise of march-in-rights.
