10. TERMINATION 

10.1 Expiration. Subject to this Section 10 below, this Agreement shall expire, on a Licensed Product-by-Licensed Product and country-by-country basis, on the date on which Kite, its Affiliates and sublicensees permanently cease to research, develop, sell and commercialize the Licensed Product in such country (the “Term”).

 

10.2 Termination for Convenience. The Licensee Kite may terminate this Agreement, in its sole discretion, upon thirty (30) days prior written notice to the Licensor Cabaret and Dr. Eshhar.

 

10.3 Termination for Cause. Except as otherwise provided in Section 12, each party may terminate this Agreement upon or after the breach of any material provision of this Agreement by the other party if the other party has not cured such breach within sixty (60) days (or such longer period as such party may reasonably agree if said breach is incapable of cure within such sixty (60) days) after receipt of express written notice thereof by such party.

 

10.4 Insolvency. This Agreement may be terminated by the Licensor Cabaret in the event of an Insolvency Event occurring in relation to the Licensee Kite, by giving a notice of termination to Kite. The termination shall take effect upon delivery of the notice of termination by Cabaret. “Insolvency Event” shall mean that, with respect to Kite, any of the following occurs: (i) Kite makes any arrangement or composition with or any assignment for the benefit of its creditors generally; (ii) a petition is presented that is not dismissed within 120 days or a court order is made or a resolution is passed for the winding up of Kite or for the making of an administration order or for the appointment of a provisional liquidator or a judicial factor or similar officer in relation to Kite; (iii) an encumbrancer takes possession of or a trustee, receiver, liquidator, provisional liquidator, administrator, manager ad interim, administrative receiver, judicial factor or similar officer is appointed, in each case for all or substantially all of Kite’s intellectual property rights and such appointment materially prejudices Cabaret’s rights under this Agreement; or (iv) Kite does, or suffers to be done in relation to it, any analogous action or proceeding in any jurisdiction anywhere in the world (including without limitation any actions or proceedings relating to bankruptcy law of any nature in the United States of America).

 

10.5 Effect of Expiration or Termination. Expiration or termination of this Agreement shall not relieve the parties of any obligation accruing prior to such expiration or termination, and the provisions of Sections 5.2, 8, 10.5, 10.6, 11 and 13 shall survive the expiration or termination of this Agreement. Upon any termination of this Agreement, all licenses granted herein shall terminate, nevertheless, Cabaret shall grant a direct license to any Sublicensee of Kite hereunder having the same scope as such sublicense and on terms and conditions no less favorable to such Sublicensee than the terms and conditions of this Agreement, provided that such Sublicensee is not in default of any applicable obligations under this Agreement and agrees in writing to be bound by the terms and conditions of such direct license.

 

10.6 Termination Fee. In the event that Kite terminates this Agreement termination for convenience under Section 10.2 prior to the third (3rd) anniversary of the Effective Date, Kite shall pay to Cabaret a termination fee in an amount equal to US$500,000 within thirty (30) days of such termination.

사안의 개요 및 쟁점

(1) 외국회사 특허권자 vs 국내회사 특허라이선스 체결

(2)  특허발명방법발명, 특허권자로부터 통상실시권 획득

(3)  상실시권자, 국내회사의 요청으로 특허발명의 전용품 마찰교반용접기를 제작하여 통상실시권자에게 납품한 행위

(4) 쟁점 - 특허권의 간접침해 해당여부

 

법원 판단간접침해 해당하지 않음

 

대법원 2017290095 판결요지

 

특허법 제127조 제2호는 특허가 방법의 발명인 경우 그 방법의 실시에만 사용하는 물건을 생산양도대여 또는 수입하거나 그 물건의 양도 또는 대여의 청약을 하는 행위를 업으로서 하는 경우에는 특허권 또는 전용실시권을 침해한 것으로 본다고 규정하고 있다. 이러한 간접침해 제도는 어디까지나 특허권이 부당하게 확장되지 아니하는 범위에서 그 실효성을 확보하고자 하는 것이다(대법원 2015. 7. 23. 선고 201442110 판결 등 참조).

 

방법의 발명(이하방법발명이라고 한다)에 관한 특허권자로부터 허락을 받은 실시권자가 제3자에게 그 방법의 실시에만 사용하는 물건(이하전용품이라고 한다)의 제작을 의뢰하여 그로부터 전용품을 공급받아 방법발명을 실시하는 경우에 있어서

 

그러한 3자의 전용품 생산양도 등의 행위를 특허권의 간접침해로 인정하면, 실시권자의 실시권에 부당한 제약을 가하게 되고, 특허권이 부당하게 확장되는 결과를 초래한다.

 

또한, 특허권자는 실시권을 설정할 때 제3자로부터 전용품을 공급받아 방법발명을 실시할 것까지 예상하여 실시료를 책정하는 등의 방법으로 당해 특허권의 가치에 상응하는 이윤을 회수할 수 있으므로, 실시권자가 제3자로부터 전용품을 공급받는다고 하여 특허권자의 독점적 이익이 새롭게 침해된다고 보기도 어렵다.

 

따라서 방법발명에 관한 특허권자로부터 허락을 받은 실시권자가 제3자에게 전용품의 제작을 의뢰하여 그로부터 전용품을 공급받아 방법발명을 실시하는 경우에 있어서 그러한 제3자의 전용품 생산, 양도 등의 행위는 특허권의 간접침해에 해당한다고 볼 수 없다.

미국 Cook Inc.Boston Scientific Corp.은 의료기기 stent 분야의 경쟁업체입니다. 양사는 1997stent에 항암제 paclitaxel을 코팅한 stent (paclitaxel-coated stent) 제품개발을 진행하였습니다. Angiotech사는 paclitaxel 특허권을 보유하고 있었습니다.

 

양사 모두 exclusive license를 체결하여, 각자 Exclusive right 보유한 licensee입니다. 공존의 의미로 co-exclusive로 표현하기도 합니다. 우리나라 특허법상 전용실시권 공유와 유사한 것으로 이해됩니다.

 

1. 분쟁대상 계약조항

Licensee Cook & Boston Scientific에 대한 GRANT 조항은 "use, manufacture, have manufactured, distribute and sell, and to grant sublicenses to its Affiliates to use, manufacture, have manufactured, distribute and sell, the Angiotech Technology ... for use in the Licensed Applications."입니다.

 

한편, "none of the parties could assign their rights or obligations under the agreement without the prior written consent of the other two."과 같은 명시적 제한 조항이 포함되어 있습니다.

 

2. Cook사의 계약위반 쟁점 행위

Cook사는 2001년 일방적으로 Advanced Cardiovascular Systems, Inc. ("ACS")와 다음과 같은 일련의 계약 5건을 체결하였습니다. (1) a Paclitaxel Coated Stent ("PCS") Distribution Agreement, (2) a Component Supply Agreement, (3) a PCS Development Agreement, (4) a Stent Delivery System Distribution Agreement, (5) a Cross-License Agreement

 

Cook사는 위 라이선스에서 허용한 판매행위는 최종 소비자에 대한 판매뿐만 아니라 판매를 사업으로 하는 도매상 등 중간상인에 대한 판매도 포함한다는 입장입니다. 판매범위에 특별한 제한을 둘 수 없다고 주장합니다.

 

허락된 생산행위도 직접 생산뿐만 아니라 제3자에게 대한 위탁생산도 포함된다는 입장입니다. 특히 계약 문언에 "have manufactured"도 포함되어 있습니다.

 

3. 계약위반 분쟁 및 쟁점

CookBoston Scientific는 경쟁업체로 동일한 exclusive licensee이기 때문에 라이선스 계약범위에 관한 첨예하게 이해관계가 대립됩니다. Cook의 행위에 대해 Boston Scientific에서는 계약상 권리양도금지 조항을 위반하는 사실상 계약이전(de facto assignment)에 해당한다고 주장하였습니다.

 

반면, Cook사는 ACSAngiotech 특허기술에 대한 access도 없고 직접 권리를 획득하지도 않는다는 점을 강조하면서, Angiotech사와 라이선스 계약으로 허용된 권리행사에 불과하다고 주장합니다.

 

4. 미국법원 1,2심 판결 요지

미국법원은 Cook/ACS 계약을 “a transparent attempt to draft around the limitations clearly expressed within the Angiotech Agreement”로 보았습니다. 오직 Cook사와 Boston Scientific사만 라이선스 독점권의 공유자로서 Angiotech Technology 사용권을 갖는다는 범위제한을 내포하고 있다고 판시하였습니다.

 

양사에 독점권을 공동으로 부여한 계약에서 당사자들의 진정한 의사는 당사자 2개사 이외에 제3자 타사에 대한 위탁생산 또는 위탁판매를 예정하지 않았다고 보았습니다. 만약 그렇게 된다면 licensee 중 상대방에게 심대한 이해관계를 미치기 때문입니다.

 

3자의 위수탁 생산, 판매행위는 계약문언상 포함된 것으로 해석될 수도 있었습니다. 그러나, 당사자의 진정한 의사와 합리적 상식을 고려하여 계약상 허용범위에서 배제한 사례입니다.

Such purchase orders shall be submitted to CyDex at least [*] but not more than [*] prior to the required delivery date specified therein. If any purchase order or other document submitted by Hospira hereunder or any other document passing between the parties contains terms or conditions in addition to or inconsistent with the terms of this Agreement, the terms of this Agreement shall control and prevail and the parties hereby agree that such additional or inconsistent terms shall simply be ignored and deemed not to exist, unless they are expressly identified as being additional to or inconsistent with this Section 3.2 and are signed by officers of both parties.

 

17.3 Forecasts and Excess Demand. No later than the First Commercial Sale date, Hospira shall provide to CyDex a [*] forecast of its requirements for Captisol, with the first [*] of such forecast constituting a binding commitment upon Hospira to purchase such quantities under firm purchase orders submitted for the respective applicable [*] in accordance with Section 3.2. The balance of the forecast shall merely represent reasonable good-faith estimates for planning purposes only and shall not obligate Hospira to purchase any such amounts. On a [***] basis, Hospira shall update the forecast. If Hospira fails to provide any updated forecast in accordance with this Section 3.3, the forecast last provided by Hospira shall be deemed to be resubmitted as Hospira’s binding forecast for the next succeeding [*] period, and with the same quantity and timing as had been forecasted (or deemed to be forecasted) for the [*] of the prior forecast being repeated as the forecasted quantity and timing for the forecast’s [*]. CyDex shall notify Hospira as soon as possible, but in any event within [*] of the receipt of any forecast, if CyDex will be unable to deliver Captisol in accordance with such forecast. CyDex’s providing of such notification shall not be interpreted in any manner as relieving CyDex of its obligations under this Agreement, nor shall it prevent Hospira from pursuing any and all rights and remedies Hospira may have based on CyDex’s failure to be able to deliver Captisol in accordance with the terms of this Agreement. If any purchase order includes an Excess Demand, then (a) CyDex shall supply the quantity of Captisol which does not constitute an Excess Demand to Hospira in accordance with Section 3.2, and (b) CyDex shall use commercially reasonable efforts to supply the Excess Demand quantities of Captisol requested by Hospira in its purchase orders as soon as commercially possible.

(b) If CyDex is unable to deliver the Captisol on the date specified by Hospira, CyDex shall notify Hospira as soon as possible, but in any event within [***] of receipt of the purchase order. CyDex’s providing of such notification shall not be interpreted in any manner as relieving CyDex of its obligations under this Agreement, nor shall it prevent Hospira from pursuing any and all rights and remedies Hospira may have based on CyDex’s failure to deliver the Captisol in accordance with the terms of this Agreement.

 

(c) With each shipment of Captisol, CyDex shall, if so requested, provide by reference or otherwise all documentation as is reasonably required by any [*] from time to time in connection with Hospira’s research, development, modification, manufacture, importation, exportation, use, promotion, marketing, distribution, packaging, offering for sale, selling, and otherwise commercially exploitation, as applicable, of Captisol or the Finished Product. If such documentation is not supplied Hospira may reject the Captisol.

 

17.5 Safety Stock. Within [*] of CyDex’s receipt of the first purchase order from Hospira, CyDex shall establish and maintain a safety stock of at least [*] of Captisol available to Hospira based on Hospira’s latest forecast provided under Section 3.3. CyDex shall keep Hospira reasonably informed of the level of inventory identified as the safety stock and shall notify Hospira in the event any deliveries to Hospira deplete the current safety stock levels.

(d) Alternate Manufacturers. If CyDex fails to supply to Hospira, or if CyDex will be unable to supply Hospira with [***]% or more of the quantity of Captisol properly forecasted and ordered by Hospira in accordance with this Agreement, for a period of [*] then CyDex shall immediately provide written notice to Hospira of the [*].

The written notice of rejection shall be given to CyDex and shall include identification of the lot number and description of the Specification failure or other defect.

 

(c) Following receipt of written notice of rejection of a particular lot of Captisol, in addition to any other rights or remedies Hospira may have under this Agreement, in equity, or at law, CyDex shall, at Hospira’s option, provide a credit, refund or prompt replacement of Captisol to Hospira; provided, however, that if CyDex does not agree with Hospira’s claim of noncompliance with Specifications or other defect, then the parties shall designate a mutually acceptable Third Party laboratory to make a determination on such matter from a sample obtained from the batch or other quantity shipped to Hospira. The decision of the Third Party laboratory shall be binding on all parties hereto and all expenses related to such Third Party investigation shall be borne by the party found to have been mistaken.

(a) Upfront License Fee and Prepayment. Hospira shall within [*] after the Effective Date (and in any event, before December 30, 2011) pay to CyDex a non-refundable upfront license fee of $500,000, in consideration of the rights granted Hospira under this Agreement. In addition, Hospira shall within [*] after the Effective Date (and in any event, before December 30, 2011) pay to CyDex $2,500,000 by wire transfer as a one-time materials purchase prepayment usable only as a cumulative $2,500,000 credit toward future purchases of Captisol hereunder. Such credit shall be applied to the first $2,500,000 of Captisol purchased hereunder, until exhausted. In the event that this Agreement is terminated, then to the extent so provided in Section 11.4 CyDex shall immediately make a payment to Hospira in the amount of any such remaining prepayment credit.

 

(b) Extension of Exclusivity Period. To retain the benefits of having the Exclusivity Period remain in force for additional time, Hospira shall have the option to extend one or more times the expiration date of the Exclusivity Period. Not more than [*] before and not less than [*] before the Exclusivity Period would otherwise expire (taking into account any previous proper extension or extensions of the Exclusivity Period pursuant to this Section 4.1(b)), CyDex shall deliver to Hospira written notice that the Exclusivity Period is set to expire. Hospira may, in its sole discretion, extend the Exclusivity Period by making a non-refundable payment, by wire transfer, of $[*] to CyDex within [*] after the receipt of CyDex’s notice. Each such extension shall extend the erstwhile expiration date of the Exclusivity Period for [*] beyond when it would otherwise have expired. For avoidance of doubt: (i) such option to extend can be exercised in compliance with this Section 4.1(b) multiple times, but no extension can extend the Exclusivity Period beyond the end of the Term, (ii) if CyDex does not provide notice to Hospira at least [*] before the end of the then current term of the Exclusivity Period, the Exclusivity Period will automatically extend for [*] after Hospira’s receipt of any such notice and Hospira shall have the right to further extend the Exclusivity Period as set forth above by making the required payment within [*] after receipt of CyDex’s notice, and (iii) the Exclusivity Period cannot be resuscitated after it has expired or terminated.

 

18.3 Taxes. All amounts due hereunder exclude all applicable sales, use, and other taxes and duties, and Hospira will be responsible for payment of all such taxes (other than taxes based on CyDex’s income), arising from the payment of amounts due under this Agreement. The parties agree to cooperate with one another and use reasonable efforts to avoid or reduce tax withholding or similar obligations in respect of payments made by Hospira to CyDex under this Agreement. To the extent Hospira is required to deduct and withhold taxes on any payment to CyDex, Hospira shall pay the amounts of such taxes to the proper governmental authority in a timely manner and promptly transmit to CyDex official receipts issued by the appropriate taxing authority and/or an official tax certificate, or such other evidence as CyDex may reasonably request, to establish that such taxes have been paid. CyDex shall provide Hospira any tax forms that may be reasonably necessary in order for Hospira to not withhold tax or to withhold tax at a reduced rate under an applicable bilateral income tax treaty. CyDex shall use reasonable efforts to provide any such tax forms to Hospira at least [***] before the due date for any payment for which CyDex desires that Hospira apply a reduced withholding rate. Each party shall provide the other with reasonable assistance to enable the recovery, as permitted by applicable law, of withholding taxes, value added taxes, or similar obligations resulting from payments made under this Agreement, such recovery to be for the benefit of the party bearing such withholding tax or value added tax.

19.1 Records and Reports.

(a) Records. During the Term and for a period of [*], Hospira shall, and shall require its Affiliates to, maintain accurate records relating to Net Sales of the Finished Product.

 

(b) Reports. During the Term, Hospira shall provide CyDex with written a report that identifies whether each respective Section 4.1(c) milestone has been achieved.

 

19.2 Audit. Upon reasonable prior notice, such Section 5.1 records shall be available during regular business hours for examination and audit at the expense of CyDex by an independent certified public accountant selected by CyDex and reasonably acceptable to Hospira, for the sole purpose of verifying Net Sales. CyDex shall [*]. Such records may not be audited more often than [*] and the records for any period may not be audited more than once. During any audit, the scope of such audit shall only include, with respect to those items of deduction for which Hospira, under its then-current system, calculates using a fixed allocation system, a review of actual allocated deductions thereunder unless and until such time as Hospira has changed its system to reflect actual deductions for such category of deductions. In the event that Hospira begins tracking actual costs and deductions on a product by product basis generally (which it has no obligation to do hereunder), Hospira will implement such actual tracking for purposes of this Agreement in lieu of fixed allocation percentages and the calculation of such actual costs and deductions shall thereafter become subject to audit pursuant to this Section 5.2. All information learned in the course of any audit or inspection under this Section 5.2 shall be deemed to be Confidential Information of Hospira, subject to the terms and provisions of Section 7 below.

When Licensee or any of its Sublicensee of Third Party Distributors sells the Product for monies other than Dollars, Licensee will convert any non-Dollar currencies into Dollars with the exchange rate for the purchase of Dollars with such domestic currency as quoted by The Wall Street Journal, New York edition, at an average rate for the Calendar Quarter for which the payment is made.

 

8.5 Accounting. 

(a) Licensee shall determine Net Sales with respect to the Product sold using its standard accounting procedures, consistent with GAAP, as if the Product was a solely owned product of Licensee, except as specifically provided in this Agreement. In the case of amounts to be determined by Third Parties (for example, Net Sales by Sublicensees), such amounts shall be determined in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in effect in the country in which such Third Party is engaged. Licensor and Licensee also recognize that such procedures may change from time to time and that any such changes may affect the definition of Net Sales. Licensor and Licensee agree that, where such changes are economically material to Licensor, adjustments shall be made to compensate Licensor in order to preserve the same economics as are reflected under this Agreement under Licensee’s accounting procedures in effect prior to such change. Where the change is or would be material to Licensor, Licensee shall provide an explanation of the proposed change and an accounting of the effect of the change on the relevant revenue, cost, or expense category.

 

(b) In the event of the payment or receipt of noncash consideration in connection with the performance of activities under this Agreement Licensee shall advise Licensor of such transaction, including without limitation Licensee’s assessment of the fair market value of such noncash consideration and the basis therefor. Such transaction shall be accounted for on a cash equivalent basis, as mutually agreed by Licensor and Licensee in good faith.

 

(c) Withholding Tax. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary herein, in the event that withholding taxes apply with respect to any amounts due from Licensee hereunder, Licensee shall be entitled to withhold from any payment due to Licensor under this Agreement any taxes that Licensee is required to pay and such withholding shall decrease by an equivalent amount the payment due to Licensor. Licensee shall provide Licensor with notification of any anticipated withholding requirements with as much advance notice as practicable and shall cooperate in good faith with Licensor to legally minimize such withholding taxes. Licensee will timely pay to the proper governmental authority the amount of any taxes withheld and will provide Licensor with an official tax certificate or other evidence of tax obligation, together with proof of payment from the relevant governmental authority sufficient to enable Licensor to claim such payment of taxes. 

 

8.6 Books and Records; Audit Request. 

(a) During the term of this Agreement and for three (3) years thereafter, Licensee shall keep and maintain, and shall cause each of its Affiliates, and Sublicensees, if any, to keep and maintain, at their respective regular places of business complete and accurate books, records, and accounts in accordance with GAAP, or other accounting standards mandated by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission if applicable to Licensee, in sufficient detail to reflect all amounts required to be paid under this Agreement, as well as any other books, records or accounts required to be maintained in connection with the Product under any Applicable Laws, necessary to permit the audits contemplated under Section 8.8(b). Prior to destroying any books, records or accounts which are material to the Parties’ rights and obligations under this Agreement, Licensee must seek prior written consent from Licensor, which consent may not be unreasonably withheld.

 

 (b) During the term of this Agreement and for three (3) years thereafter, Licensor shall have access to and the right to examine such relevant records and accounts that Licensee is required to maintain pursuant to Section 8.8(a) at Licensee’s premises for the sole purpose of verifying the accuracy of any report or payment made under this Agreement in the three (3) preceding years; provided, however, that any such examination: (i) shall not occur more than once during each Calendar Year (except that if as a result of any audit pursuant to this Section 8.8(b), an error in favor of Licensee exceeding five percent (5%) of any payments previously reported as owed by Licensee to Licensor is discovered, the frequency of audits under this Section 8.10(b) shall not be so limited); (ii) shall be during normal business hours upon reasonable prior written notice which shall in no event be less than thirty (30) days; and (iii) shall not unreasonably interfere with Licensee’s operations and activities. If Licensor desires to audit such records, it shall engage an independent, certified public accountant reasonably acceptable to Licensee, to examine such records under conditions of confidentiality with respect thereto at least as stringent as those specified in Article 13. The expense of any such audit shall be borne by Licensor; provided, however, that, if an error of more than five percent (5%) in favor of Licensor is discovered as a result of such audit, then such expenses shall be paid by Licensee. If such accountant concludes that additional payment amounts were owed to Licensor during any period, Licensee shall pay such payment amount (including without limitation interest thereon from the date such amounts were payable) within thirty (30) days after the date Licensor delivers to Licensee such accountant’s written report so concluding, unless Licensee notifies Licensor of any dispute regarding the audit. If such accountant concludes that Licensee has overpaid any amounts to Licensor during any period, in Licensor’s discretion, Licensee may credit such amounts against future payments due Licensor or Licensor may pay such amounts (including without limitation interest thereon from the date such amounts were payable), unless Licensor notifies Licensee of any dispute regarding the audit. Any Information received by Licensor pursuant to this Section 8.10 shall be deemed to be Confidential Information of Licensee for purposes of Article 13. 

 

8.7 Blocked Currency. If by Applicable Laws or fiscal policy of a particular country, conversion into Dollars or transfer of funds of a convertible currency to the United States is restricted or forbidden, royalties accrued in such country shall be paid to Licensor in the country in local currency by deposit in a local bank designated by Licensor for such deposit, unless Licensor and Licensee otherwise agree. 

 

8.8 Interest. If Licensor does not receive payment of any sum due to it on or before the due date, simple interest shall thereafter accrue on the sum due to Licensor from the due date until the date of payment at a rate equal to three month Dollar LIBOR Rate, as reported in the online edition of The Wall Street Journal as of Noon (New York Time) on such due date, or the maximum rate allowable by Applicable Laws, whichever is less. 

 

8.9 Transaction Expenses. Licensee shall upon execution and delivery of this Agreement pay the documented reasonable fees and expenses of Licensor’s advisors and counsel incurred by Licensor in structuring, negotiating, memorializing, and otherwise undertaking the transaction contemplated by this Agreement. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Licensee’s obligation under this Section 8.11 shall be limited to an amount not to exceed $2,000,000.

1. 특허무효 확정된 경우 특허발명 실시계약에 미치는 효력에 관한 기본법리

 

특허가 무효로 확정되면 특허권은 특허법 제133조 제1항 제4호의 경우를 제외하고는 처음부터 없었던 것으로 간주된다(특허법 제133조 제3). 그러나 특허발명 실시계약이 체결된 이후에 계약의 대상인 특허권이 무효로 확정된 경우 특허발명 실시계약이 계약 체결 시부터 무효로 되는지는 특허권의 효력과는 별개로 판단하여야 한다.

 

특허발명 실시계약을 체결하면 특허권자는 실시권자의 특허발명 실시에 대하여 특허권 침해로 인한 손해배상이나 그 금지 등을 청구할 수 없고, 특허가 무효로 확정되기 전에는 특허권의 독점적ㆍ배타적 효력에 따라 제3자의 특허발명 실시가 금지된다.

 

이러한 점에 비추어 특허발명 실시계약의 목적이 된 특허발명의 실시가 불가능한 경우가 아니라면 특허 무효의 소급효에도 불구하고 그와 같은 특허를 대상으로 하여 체결된 특허발명 실시계약이 그 계약의 체결 당시부터 원시적으로 이행불능 상태에 있었다고 볼 수는 없고, 다만 특허 무효가 확정되면 그때부터 특허발명 실시계약은 이행불능 상태에 빠지게 된다고 보아야 한다(대법원 2014. 11. 13. 선고 201242666, 42673 판결 등 참조).

 

따라서 특허발명 실시계약 체결 이후에 특허가 무효로 확정되었더라도 특허발명 실시계약이 원시적으로 이행불능 상태에 있었다거나 그 밖에 특허발명 실시계약 자체에 별도의 무효사유가 없는 한, 특허권자는 원칙적으로 특허발명 실시계약이 유효하게 존재하는 기간 동안 실시료의 지급을 청구할 수 있다. 

 

2. 특허무효 확정된 경우 특허발명 실시계약 상 특허무효 확정 전 기간에 지급해야 할 실시료를 구할 수 있는지 여부

 

대법원 2019. 4. 25. 선고 2018287362 판결 요지판결문 첨부

특허발명 실시계약이 체결된 이후에 계약의 대상이 된 특허가 진보성이 없다는 이유로 무효로 확정된 사안에서, 위 실시계약이 원시적 불능이라고 할 수 없어 특허권자가 이미 지급받은 특허실시료를 반환할 의무가 없다고 한 대법원 201242666, 42673 판결에 이어, 특허권자는 특허무효 확정 이전에 미지급된 특허실시료의 지급을 구할 수 있는 것이 원칙이다.

 

3. 대법원 201242666 판결 사안 특허무효 소급효 제한 적용 라이선스 계약 취소 불인정 + 기 지급한 로열티 반환청구 불인정 + 장래 로열티 지급의무 소멸

 

(1)   특허실시계약의 체결 이후 대상특허가 무효로 확정된 경우 특허권자가 실시권자로부터 이미 지급받은 특허실시료를 부당이득으로 반환할 의무가 있는지 여부 - 부정

(2)   실시계약의 체결 이후 계약의 대상이 된 특허가 무효로 확정된 경우 착오를 이유로 특허발명 실시계약을 취소할 수 있는지 여부 부정

 

“특허발명 실시계약에 의하여 특허권자는 실시권자의 특허발명 실시에 대하여 특허권 침해로 인한 손해배상이나 그 금지 등을 청구할 수 없게 될 뿐만 아니라 특허가 무효로 확정되기 이전에 존재하는 특허권의 독점적ㆍ배타적 효력에 의하여 제3자의 특허발명 실시가 금지되는 점에 비추어 보면, 특허발명 실시계약의 목적이 된 특허발명의 실시가 불가능한 경우가 아닌 한 특허무효의 소급효에도 불구하고 그와 같은 특허를 대상으로 하여 체결된 특허발명 실시계약이 그 계약의 체결 당시부터 원시적으로 이행불능 상태에 있었다고 볼 수는 없고, 다만 특허무효가 확정되면 그때부터 특허발명 실시계약은 이행불능 상태에 빠지게 된다고 보아야 한다.

 

따라서 특허발명 실시계약 체결 이후에 특허가 무효로 확정되었더라도 앞서 본 바와 같이 특허발명 실시계약이 원시적으로 이행불능 상태에 있었다거나 그 밖에 특허발명 실시계약 자체에 별도의 무효사유가 없는 한 특허권자가 특허발명 실시계약에 따라 실시권자로부터 이미 지급받은 특허실시료 중 특허발명 실시계약이 유효하게 존재하는 기간에 상응하는 부분을 실시권자에게 부당이득으로 반환할 의무가 있다고 할 수 없다. 

 

특허는 그 성질상 특허등록 이후에 무효로 될 가능성이 내재되어 있는 점을 감안하면, 특허발명 실시계약 체결 이후에 계약의 대상인 특허의 무효가 확정되었더라도 그 특허의 유효성이 계약체결의 동기로서 표시되었고 그것이 법률행위의 내용의 중요부분에 해당하는 등의 사정이 없는 한, 착오를 이유로 특허발명 실시계약을 취소할 수는 없다고 할 것이다.”

 

4. 실시권자 Licensee의 특허권자 Licensor 상대로 대상특허에 대한 무효심판청구 가능 - 특허무효의 경우 계약상 실시료 Royalty 지급의무 범위 소멸: 대법원 2019. 2. 21. 선고 20172819 전원합의체 판결

 

특허권의 실시권자에게는 실시료 지급이나 실시 범위 등 여러 제한 사항이 부가되는 것이 일반적이므로, 실시권자는 무효심판을 통해 특허에 대한 무효심결을 받음으로써 이러한 제약에서 벗어날 수 있다.

 

그리고 특허에 무효사유가 존재하더라도 그에 대한 무효심결이 확정되기까지는 그 특허권은 유효하게 존속하고 함부로 그 존재를 부정할 수 없으며, 무효심판을 청구하더라도 무효심결이 확정되기까지는 상당한 시간과 비용이 소요된다.

 

이러한 이유로 특허권에 대한 실시권을 설정받지 않고 실시하고 싶은 사람이라도 우선 특허권자로부터 실시권을 설정받아 특허발명을 실시하고 그 무효 여부에 대한 다툼을 추후로 미루어 둘 수 있으므로, 실시권을 설정받았다는 이유로 특허의 무효 여부를 다투지 않겠다는 의사를 표시하였다고 단정할 수도 없다.”

특허발명의 실시허략, 기술이전 라이선스를 체결하면서 계약서에서 Licensee는 대상특허의 무효도전(patent challenge)을 할 수 없다는 명시적 조항을 둔 경우 Licensee가 무효주장을 할 수 있는지 문제됩니다. Licensee에게 대상 특허의 유효성에 대해 다투지 않을 의무를 계약으로 강제할 수 있는지 여부가 쟁점입니다.

 

원칙적으로 licensee 입장에서 대상특허의 무효도전을 하는 것은 허용됩니다. 미국연방대법원 Lear v. Adkins (1969) 판결에서 “a licensee cannot be estopped from challenging the validity of a patent merely because it benefitted from the license agreement.”라고 명시적으로 라이센시의 특허도전을 허용하였습니다.

 

그러나, 라이선스 계약위반으로 이미 성립된 계약위반책임을 회피하기 위해 사후적으로 제기하는 특허무효주장은 허용되지 않는다는 것이 미국법원 판결입니다.  Studiengesellshaft Kohle v. Shell Oil (CAFC 1997) 판결: Lear does not apply where a licensee seeks to avoid contractual obligations already owed at the time of the suit. It "must prevent the injustice of allowing a licensee to exploit the protection of the contract and patent rights and then later to abandon conveniently its obligations under those same rights."

 

앞서 소개한 사안 - Licensee Neurocrine의 계약위반책임 항변으로 계약대상특허의 무효 주장을 배척한 판결 

 

미국법원은 sublicense 허용조건으로 licensor의 사전동의를 받도록 한 계약조항을 위반한 행위에 대한 손해배상을 구하는 범위내에서 licensee의 특허무효 항변이 허용되지 않는다고 판결하였습니다.

 

다만, 사안을 구별하여, 특허권자가 특허기술 사용에 대한 장래 royalty를 청구하는 경우는 licensee의 특허무효 항변이 허용될 수 있다는 취지의 판결입니다. 이 부분에 대한 라이선스 계약위반 사항은 없기 때문입니다.

 

라이선스 계약을 준수하면서 대상특허 무효도전 허용 – MedImmune 판결

 

미연방대법원은 MedImmune 판결에서 Licensee는 계약상 로열티를 계속 지불하면서도 특허무효 확인 소송을 제기할 수 있다고 판결하였습니다. 라이센스 계약에 위배하여 로열티의 지급을 중지하는 경우, 특허권자로부터 제소당하여 침해에 대한 고의가 인정되면 3배까지 배상금을 지불하여야 할 위험이 있으므로 해당 특허의 무효를 확신하여도 마지못해 로열티를 지불하게 된다면실제의 분쟁이 발생한 것이라고 볼 수 있다고 보았습니다.

 

우리나라 공정위 특허라이선스 계약 관련 심사지침 - ‘무효인 특허의 존속 등을 위하여 부당하게 실시권자가 관련 특허의 효력을 다투는 것을 금지하는 행위는 공정거래법 위반 소지 있음, 해당 계약조항의 효력 불인정 소지 있음, 해당 사안에 대한 판결 없음

 

대법원 2019. 2. 21. 선고 20172819 전원합의체 판결: 실시권자 Licensee의 특허권자 Licensor 상대로 대상특허에 대한 무효심판청구 가능 - 특허무효의 경우 계약상 실시료 Royalty 지급의무 범위 소멸:

Licensor 이익을 위한 부쟁조항 예문 Example

라이센시의 특별한 상황에서는 인정한 미연방대법원 MedImmune 판결이 나온 지 벌써 10년이 지났습니다. 현재에도 Licensee의 부쟁의무 조항에 대해 정답을 명확하게 말할 수 없을 정도로 매우 어려운 쟁점사항(issue)입니다. 최근 본 미국 블로그 내용 중에서 라이선스 실무자에게 참고자료로 도움될 것 같은 계약문구 examples을 간략하게 인용합니다.

 

Examples of Patent Challenge Definition Clause

Example 1: if licensee or its affiliate under a license commences an action in which it challenges the validity, enforceability or scope of any of the patent rights under, then [a remedy will be triggered, such as termination of the license, doubling of the royalty rate, or some other event].

 

Example 2: in the event any licensee (or sublicensee or any entity or person acting on its behalf) initiates any proceeding or otherwise asserts any claim challenging the validity or enforceability of any licensed patent right in any court, administrative agency or other forum, then [a remedy will be triggered].

 

Example 3: any legal or administrative challenge to the validity, patentability, enforceability and/or non-infringement of any of the licensed patent or otherwise opposing the licensed patent.

 

Examples of Licensor’s Remedies

-      Right to Terminate the License

-      Increase in Royalty Rates

-      Liquidated Damages

-      Reimbursement of Legal Fees

1. 사안의 개요

 

Gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH)은 전립선암, 자궁암, 유방암을 포함하여 많은 내분비계 질환과 관련된 것으로 알려져 있습니다. NY 소재 Mt. Sinai 의과대학 Dr. Sealfon 교수는 1998년경 GnRH 관련 질병치료제 개발의 기본 tool에 해당하는 연구개발성과에 대한 2건의 특허를 등록하고, 1999. 8. 27. San Diego 소재 벤처기업 Neurocrine Biosciences nonexclusive license를 허여하는 계약을 체결하였고, Neurocrine10여년간의 연구개발 끝에 2010년경 대기업 Abbott(현재 AbbVie)와 신약연구개발 성과(신약후보 물질 Elagolix )에 대한 exclusive license 계약을 체결하였습니다.

 

최초 라이선스 계약서 중 sublicense 허용조항은 다음과 같습니다. – The Licensee Neurocrine may "grant sublicenses under the License only with the prior written consent" of the Licensor Mt. Sinai.

 

Neurocrine에서 AbbVie와 라이선스 계약을 체결하면서 Mt. Sinai 의과대학의 사전동의를 받지 않았습니다. 그것이 라이선스 계약위반에 해당하는지, 손해배상책임 여부가 문제됩니다.

 

한편, Elagolix는 현재 FDA 허가심사 중인데, Mt. Sinai 의과대학에서 향후 신약에 대한 Royalty를 받을 수 있는지 등이 중대한 문제입니다.

 

2. 특허라이선스와 Licensee의 특허무효 부쟁의무   

 

원칙적으로 licensee 입장에서 대상특허의 무효항변을 제기하는 것은 허용됩니다. 미국연방대법원 Lear v. Adkins (1969) 판결: a licensee cannot be estopped from challenging the validity of a patent merely because it benefitted from the license agreement.

 

그러나, 라이선스 계약위반으로 이미 성립된 책임을 회피하기 위해 사후적으로 제기하는 특허무효주장은 허용되지 않는다는 것이 미국법원 판결입니다. Studiengesellshaft Kohle v. Shell Oil (CAFC 1997) 판결: Lear does not apply where a licensee seeks to avoid contractual obligations already owed at the time of the suit. It "must prevent the injustice of allowing a licensee to exploit the protection of the contract and patent rights and then later to abandon conveniently its obligations under those same rights."

 

3. 미국법원의 Licensee Neurocrine의 대상특허 무효 항변 배척 판결 

 

미국법원은 sublicense 허용조건으로 licensor의 사전동의를 받도록 한 계약조항을 위반한 행위에 대한 손해배상을 구하는 범위내에서 licensee의 특허무효 항변이 허용되지 않는다고 판결하였습니다.

 

다만, 사안을 구별하여, 특허권자가 특허기술 사용에 대한 장래 royalty를 청구하는 경우는 licensee의 특허무효 항변이 허용될 수 있다는 취지의 판결입니다. 이 부분에 대한 라이선스 계약위반 사항은 없기 때문입니다.

 

참고로 licensee특허비침해 주장도 하였지만, 미국법원은 위 사안에서 라이선스 계약위반에 대한 항변으로 허용될 수 없다고 명확하게 판결하였습니다.

 

대학의 특허발명에 출발하여 벤처기업에서 10여년간 연구개발한 성과를 다시 대규모 제약회사에 라이선스하여 최종적으로 신약허가신청까지 성공한 사례입니다. 여기서 최초 대학과 체결한 라이선스 계약에 관한 분쟁으로 라이선스 실무자들에게 흥미로운 사건입니다.

 

중도 합의로 종결되어 최종 손해배상금액까지 결정한 최종 판결이 나오지 않을 가능성이 높지만 비록 중간판결일지라도 모니터링해볼 흥미로운 사례라고 생각합니다.

1. 머리말

 

대학기술을 license하여 산학공동협력연구 Research Collaboration Agreement를 체결하는 경우 후속 연구개발성과에 대한 권리귀속, 그 기술을 대기업 등 제3자에게 다시 license하거나 이전하는 등 사업화하여 수익을 창출할 수 있는 sublicense 단계에서의 수익배분 문제는 핵심쟁점 중 하나입니다.

 

최대한 파이를 키워야만 서로 나누어 가질 조각도 커진다는 기본전제는 분명합니다. 먼저 파이를 키우는 후속 연구개발과 sublicense는 서로 적극적으로 지원해야 합니다. 그 다음 파이조각 나누기는 쉽지 않습니다. 왜냐하면, 후속 연구개발성과에 대한 권리관계 판단이 쉽지 않기 때문입니다. 통상 sublicense는 원천기술보다 후속 연구개발성과를 본 후 원천기술에 그것을 포함하여 대상으로 하거나 원천기술보다 후속 연구개발성과를 주된 대상기술로 하기 때문입니다. 후속연구개발에 대한 기여도가 똑같지 않기 때문에 소유권 또는 지분권 등에 관한 분쟁 가능성이 높습니다.

 

특히 대학교수가 licensee 기업으로부터 위탁연구용역을 수주하는 경우도 많기 때문에 위탁연구 관련 발명의 발명자에 해당하는지 아니면 단순 외주 용역에 불과한지, 특히 소속대학은 직무발명 법리에 근거한 지분권이 있는지 등등 복잡한 문제가 생깁니다. 아래에서 미국대학 중 기술이전 실적이 많고 또 소송 등 권리행사에 적극적인 Wisconsin 대학의 분쟁사례 판결을 참고로 소개합니다.

 

2. 기술이전 및 산학협력연구

 

. 대학기술 라이선스 및 산학협동연구

 

1999 Wisconsin 대학교수는 SCD 저해화합물의 콜레스테롤 저하 효능을 발견하였고, Wisconsin 대학산학협력단에서 2000년 연구결과에 대한 provisional patent application을 출원하였습니다. 그 후 캐나다 제약회사 Xenon에서 특허출원기술을 포함한 exclusive license agreement Wisconsin 대학교수를 포함한 연구진과 콜레스테롤 저하 효능의 신약개발에 관한 공동연구개발계약을 체결하고, 공동연구개발을 진행하여 다수 신물질의 효과를 확인하였습니다. Xenon사는 그 다음 해 2001 provisional patent application에 대한 우선권을 주장하면서 추가 연구성과를 포함하여 대학과 공동 특허출원을 하였습니다.

 

. 후속 연구개발성과에 대한 회사의 단독 특허출원

 

한편, Xenon은 계속하여 license 대상 물질을 넘어서 그 범위를 확대하여 수천개의 화합물의 약효를 확인하는 추가 연구개발 프로젝트를 추진하였고, 이때 위스콘신 대학이 아닌 제3의 외부 전문 연구기관과 위탁연구용역을 진행하였습니다.

 

그 결과 효능이 뛰어난 PPA 군 화합물 20여개를 선택한 후, 다시 Wisconsin 대학의 교수에게 보내 효능을 재확인하는 위탁연구용역을 하였습니다. 그 최종 결과물을 갖고 Xenon사 단독으로 PPA군 화합물에 대한 후속 특허출원을 하였습니다.

 

. Norvatis sublicense 성사 및 분쟁발생  

 

Xenon사는 후속으로 단독 출원했던 신약후보물질 PPA 관련 기술에 대해, 대형 제약회사 Novartis와 특허출원 후 3,4년이 지나 기술이전 및 license하는 계약을 체결하였습니다.

 

Wisconsin 대학은 Xenon의 후속 연구성과물에 대한 단독 특허출원 기술내용, PPA 기술내용도 Wisconsin 대학과 공동 출원한 선행 특허출원의 청구범위에 속하고, 대학과 체결한 exclusive license 적용대상이므로 계약상 sublicense에 해당하고, 따라서 약정한 sublicense fee를 대학에 지불해야 한다고 주장합니다.

 

반면, licensee Xenon사에서는 후속 연구성과 PPA 관련 기술내용은 대학과 무관하게 독자적인 연구개발의 성과물로서 단독소유라고 주장하였습니다.

 

또한, 설령 그 기술내용이 선출원 특허의 청구범위에 속한다고 하더라도 미국법상 공동 출원인 Xenon사는 타 공유자의 동의 없이 자유롭게 license 하는 등 실시할 권리가 있다고 주장합니다. , 특허공유자는 타 공유자에게 수익 배분의 부담 없이 자유롭게 공유 특허발명을 양도 또는 라이선스를 할 수 있기 때문에 Norvatis로부터 받은 로열티 수입 중 일부를 위스콘신 대학에 배분해 주어야 할 의무는 없다고 주장합니다.

 

3. 미국법원 판결

 

Xenon사의 방어논리 중 핵심포인트는 미국특허법상 공동출원인, 특허공유자의 특허기술전체에 대한 자유로운 실시권에 기초한 것입니다. 미국법원은 특허법상 공유자의 권리의무관계는 당사자 사이의 계약으로 달리 정할 수 있고, 그 경우 당사자 사이 계약내용이 이 우선 적용된다는 기본원칙을 명확하게 밝혔습니다.

 

Xenon사는 Wisconsin 대학 산학협력단과 체결한 계약서에서 sublicense를 허용하고 그 경우 대학에 일정한 sublicense fee를 지불하기로 약정하였고, 그와 같은 계약은 공동출원인, 공유특허권자 사이에서도 유효한데, Xenon사에서 그와 같은 계약을 위반했다고 판결하였습니다.

 

결국 Xenon사는 exclusive license agreement에서 약정한 바에 따라 Norvatis로부터 받은upfront payment는 물론 향후 running royalty 중 일부를 sublicense fee로서 위스콘신 산단에 지불해야 한다는 판결입니다.

 

한편, 추가 PPA 화합물 20여개를 Wisconsin 대학교수에게 보내 효능을 재확인하기 위한 위탁연구용역에 관련 쟁점이 있습니다. Wisconsin 대학은 공동연구개발계약 범위 내에 속하고 대학교수는 공동발명자, 대학은 그 직무발명의 승계인으로서 권리 공유자라는 입장입니다. 미국법원은 회사 단독 소유권을 부정하고 산단에 공유자 권리를 인정하였습니다.

 

우리나라에서도 대학교수와 위탁연구용약을 자주 합니다. 그 결과물에 대해 대학 산학협력단의 지분권을 부인하고 의뢰자 회사의 단독 권리를 주장하는 경우가 많습니다. 해당 교수가 발명자로 인정된다면, 직무발명 등 관련 법에 따라 판단해 본다면, 설령 해당 대학교수가 용인하더라도 회사의 단독 소유 주장은 인정받기 어렵다 생각합니다.

(d) except as expressly permitted hereunder, Licensee agrees not to, and agrees to cause its Affiliates and Sublicensees not to (i) assign, transfer, convey or otherwise encumber any right, title or interest in or to the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or any Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, (ii) grant in any manner any license or other right, title or interest in or to any of the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or the Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, (iii) agree to or otherwise become bound by any covenant not to sue for any infringement, misuse or other action or inaction with respect to any of the Licensed Rights, the Sublicensed Rights, or the Regulatory Approvals and Documentation in respect of the Product, or (iv) bring any action or proceeding or otherwise assert any claim under any Applicable Law in the event any licensee (or sublicensee or any entity or person acting on its behalf) initiates any proceeding or otherwise assert any claim in any court, administrative agency, or other forum with jurisdiction over such proceeding or claim, that any of the Licensed Rights or Sublicensed Rights are invalid, unenforceable, or not infringed, violated, or misappropriated. In the event that Licensee or any Affiliate or Sublicensee of Licensee initiates any proceeding or otherwise asserts any claim in violation of clause (iv) of this Section 10.3, and the result thereof is a final decision, ruling, holding, award, or other disposition to the effect that any of the Licensed Rights or Sublicensed Rights are valid, enforceable, or infringed, violated, or misappropriated, then each of the royalty rates set forth in the table in Section 8.3(a) will each be increased by [*] and the party initiating such proceeding or otherwise asserting such claim shall pay the attorneys’ fees and expenses incurred by Licensor in defending against such proceeding or claim.

 

10.4 Inaccuracies. Without limiting either Party’s rights and remedies at law, in equity or under this Agreement, if, at any point in time (not just at the times when the warranties are deemed granted), either Party becomes aware of any inaccuracies in the foregoing warranties and representations, such Party shall promptly notify the other Party of such inaccuracies, with a detailed written explanation.

1. 진술 및 보증조항 관련 분쟁

정유회사의 M&A 주식양수도계약서에서 '양도인은 양수인에게 주식양수도계약 체결일 및 양수도 실행일에 일체의 행정법규를 위반한 사실이 없고, 이와 관련하여 행정기관으로부터 조사를 받고 있거나 협의를 진행하는 것은 없다는 내용의 진술 및 보증조항, 나아가 '양수도 실행일 이후 보증 위반사항이 발견된 경우나 약속사항 위반으로 손해가 발생할 경우 500억원을 초과하지 않는 범위 내에서 배상하기로 한다'는 책임조항이 포함되어 있었습니다.

 

그런데, 양도인 회사는 군용유류 구매입찰에서 담합행위 등 공정거래법을 위반했다는 이유로 거액의 과징금 납부명령을 받았고 거액의 손해배상청구소송까지 제기 받았습니다. 이에 양수인이 진술 및 보증조항 위반을 이유로 책임조항을 적용하여 양도인에 대한 손해배상청구 소송을 제기하였습니다.

 

2. 항소심 서울고등법원 200819678 판결

항소심 법원은 양수인도 진술 및 보증위반 사항을 알면서도 계약을 체결했다는 이유로 양도인의 책임을 인정하지 않았습니다. 판결문 중 핵심부분을 인용하면 다음과 같습니다. "양수인도 이 사건 담합행위에 직접 참여했던 탓에 주식양수도계약 체결 당시에 이미 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사실을 알고 있었고, 계약협상 및 가격산정에 반영할 수 있었음에도 방치하였다가 이후 위반사실이 존재한다는 사정을 들어 양도인 피고에게 책임을 묻는 것은 공평의 이념 및 신의칙상 허용될 수 없으므로, 양도인 피고는 위와 같은 악의의 주식양수인인 원고에 대하여 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반에 따른 책임을 부담하지 않는다."

 

3. 대법원 201264253 판결

원심판결을 파기 환송하였습니다. "이 사건 주식양수도계약의 양수도 실행일 이후에 이 사건 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사항이 발견되고 그로 인하여 손해가 발생하면, 원고가 그 위반사항을 계약체결 당시 알았는지 여부와 관계없이, 피고들이 원고에게 그 위반사항과 상당인과관계 있는 손해를 배상하기로 하는 합의를 한 것으로 봄이 상당하다.

 

양수인 원고가 이 사건 진술 및 보증조항과 관련된 이 사건 담합행위를 알고 있었고 이 사건 담합행위로 인한 공정거래위원회의 제재 가능성 등을 이 사건 주식양수도대금 산정에 반영할 기회를 가지고 있었다고 하더라도 그러한 점만으로 원고의 손해배상청구가 공평의 이념 및 신의칙에 반한다고 볼 수 없다."

 

4. 실무적 함의

대법원 판결은 계약서 문언이 가장 중요하다는 원칙을 다시 한번 확인하였습니다. 비록 계약체결 당시 당사자가 진술 및 보증 조항의 위반사실을 알고 있었다고 해도 계약서 효력을 함부로 부정할 수 없다고 명확하게 판결하였습니다.

 

처분문서인 계약서의 계약문언이 그 객관적 의미가 명확하다면 특별한 사정이 없는 한 문언대로의 의사표시의 존재와 내용을 인정하여야 합니다. 설령 공평의 이념이나 신의칙을 적용해야 할 사정이 있다고 하더라도, 이과 같은 일반원칙에 근거하여 계약의 효력을 부정하거나 계약상 책임을 제한하는 것은 사적 자치의 원칙이나 법적 안정성에 대한 중대한 위협이 될 수 있으므로 신중을 기하여 극히 예외적으로 인정하여야 한다는 입장입니다.

 

, 무엇보다 계약서 문언을 가장 중시하고 신의칙이나 공평이념 등을 아주 예외적으로 극히 신중하게 적용하라는 취지입니다. 가능성을 완전히 배제하는 것은 아니지만 현실적으로 실제 사례에서 그와 같은 특별한 경우는 인정되기 어렵다는 의미입니다.

 

5. 진술 및 보증 조항 위반과 손해배상책임 범위: 대법원 2018. 7. 20. 선고 2015207044 판결

(1) M&A 계약에서 진술 및 보증 조항을 둔 목적은, 계약 종결과 이행 이후 진술 및 보증하였던 내용과 다른 사실이 발견되어 일방 당사자에게 손해가 발생한 경우에 상대방에게 그 손해를 배상하게 함으로써, 불확실한 상황에 관한 경제적 위험을 배분하고 사후에 현실화된 손해를 감안하여 매매대금을 조정할 수 있게 하기 위한 것이다.

 

(2) M&A 대상회사에 대한 소송이나 분쟁의 존재는 우발채무에 따른 손실로 이어질 가능성이 있어 진술 및 보증의 대상으로 삼는 것이다.

 

(3) 매도인이 대상회사에 대한 소송이나 분쟁을 고지하지 않았고 이후 대상회사에 실제로 우발채무가 발생한 경우 언제나 그 전부가 손해배상의 범위에 포함된다고 볼 수는 없다. 3자가 대상회사를 상대로 터무니없는 소송을 제기하였음에도 매도인이 이를 알리지 않은 상태에서 M&A 계약이 종결, 이행되었는데, 매도인에게 책임을 물을 수 있으므로 매수인으로서는 실질적 피해가 없다는 이유로 대상회사로 하여금 별다른 다툼 없이 거액의 합의금을 지급하도록 하는 경우와 같이, 매도인에게 과도한 책임을 지우는 결과를 초래할 수 있기 때문이다.

 

(4) 그러나 소송 또는 분쟁으로부터 직접 그리고 자연스럽게 도출되거나 합리적으로 예상가능한 범위의 손해에 관하여는 매도인이 그에 관한 배상책임을 부담하여야 한다.

 

(5) 매수인이 거래 종결 후 대상회사 주식을 매각하는 경우 대부분 매수인은 후속 매수인에게 진술 및 보증을 하고 그 위반으로 인한 책임을 부담하게 된다.

 

(6) 만약 매도인의 진술 및 보증 조항 위반으로 매수인의 주식 매각 이후 대상회사에 손실이 발생하고, 그로 인해 매수인이 새로운 매수인에 대하여 책임을 부담하게 되었음에도, 매수인이 주식을 매각하여 주주의 지위에 있지 않다는 이유로 당초의 매도인에게 책임을 물을 수 없는 결과에 이른다면 경제적 위험의 적정한 배분이라는 진술 및 보증 조항의 목적에 반하게 된다.

 

(7) 따라서 당사자들 사이에 특별한 합의가 없다면 매수인이 대상회사의 주식을 처분하더라도 손해배상청구 및 액수 산정에 별다른 영향을 미치지 않는다.

License 후 공동연구개발을 진행하지만 완료까지 오랜 기간이 소요되는 경우, 기술보유 licensor 벤처회사가 투자유치 또는 M&A 등으로 지배권 변동이 발생하기도 합니다. Licensee의 경쟁회사에서 licensor 회사를 M&A하는 경우는 물론, 제품라인이 중복되거나 연구개발전략이 전혀 달리하는 등 다양한 사유로 collaboration 관계를 지속하기 어려운 상황을 맞기도 합니다.

 

이와 같은 상황에 대비하여 미리 해결방안을 계약조항으로 규정해 두는 것이 바람직합니다. 다양한 쟁점이 있겠지만, 최근 올려드린 자문의 계약서 중 해당 조항을 뽑아 아래와 같이 인용합니다. 찬찬히 읽어 보고 살펴보시기 바랍니다.

 

정의 - "CHANGE IN CONTROL" shall mean, with respect to either Party, any of the following events: (i) the acquisition by any Major Pharmaceutical Company of "beneficial ownership" directly or indirectly, of 50% or more of the shares of such Party's capital stock, the holders of which have general voting power under ordinary circumstances to elect at least a majority of such Party's Board of Directors or equivalent body (the "Board of Directors") (the "Voting Stock"); (ii) the approval by the shareholders of such Party of a merger, share exchange, reorganization, consolidation or similar transaction of such Party (a "Transaction"), if any party to the transaction is a Major Pharmaceutical Company other than a Transaction which would result in the beneficial owners of Voting Stock of such Party immediately prior thereto continuing to beneficially own (either by such Voting Stock remaining outstanding or being converted into voting securities of the surviving entity) more than 50% of the Voting Stock of such Party or such surviving entity immediately after such Transaction; or (iii) approval by the shareholders of such Party of a complete liquidation of such Party or a sale or disposition of all or substantially all of the assets of such Party.

 

처리방안 계약조항 - CHANGE IN CONTROL. In the event there shall be a Change in Control with respect to either Party, the Party not involved in the Change in Control shall have a period of ninety (90) days following the Change in Control to give notice to the other Party that it desires to terminate this Agreement. If such notice is given, then the Parties shall arrange for a valuation of the value of their respective interests in this Agreement using the procedures set forth in Section 12.7(b)(i).

 

Upon receipt of the valuation, the Party not involved in the Change in Control shall have the option within thirty (30) days of receipt of the valuation either to (i) withdraw its notice terminating this Agreement or (ii) confirm its desire to terminate, in that case the Party experiencing the Change in Control shall elect either to (a) purchase the other Party's interest at the established value or (b) sell its own interest to the other Party at the appraised value of its interest. The Parties shall negotiate in good faith such other terms and conditions and take such other actions as shall be necessary to effect the sale or purchase contemplated hereby within the shortest possible time.

8.5. Change of Control.

 

8.5.1. Change of Control Notice. Astellas will notify Ironwood in writing, referencing this Section 8.5.1 of this Agreement, immediately upon any Change of Control of Astellas, and will provide such notice where possible at least 60 days prior to the Change of Control.

 

8.5.2. Consequences of a Change of Control.

 

(a) In the event that Astellas is subject to a Change of Control which could reasonably be expected to lead to an Impairment (as defined below), Astellas will notify Ironwood at least [**] days prior to the closing of such transaction, and Ironwood may elect, in its sole discretion, to (i) continue this Agreement in accordance with its terms, (ii) terminate this Agreement on [**] months notice, during which period this Agreement would continue in effect in accordance with its terms, such notice to be delivered within [**] days after the Fair Market Value is determined pursuant to this Section 8.5.2(a). Within [**] days following Ironwood’s receipt of notice from Astellas of a Change of Control that could reasonably be expected to lead to an Impairment, Ironwood will provide notice to Astellas requesting a determination of the Fair Market Value upon a termination of this Agreement pursuant to this Section 8.5.2(a), and the failure to so request such valuation will be deemed the election to continue this Agreement in accordance with its terms. Such determination must be made by the Parties in good faith, and if such determination is not made within [**] days of the request, then as determined by a Valuation Panel. In connection with such termination, Ironwood will be required to pay Astellas an amount equal to the upfront portion of the Fair Market Value within ten days of the effective date of the termination, and, as they become due, payment of any ongoing, and/or recurring license fees, royalties, and other payments that may be part of Fair Market Value.

 

(b) For purposes of this Section 8.5.2, an “Impairment” will only be deemed to occur if (a) it is reasonably anticipated that the entity resulting from such Change of Control will be unable to perform its obligations in accordance with the terms of this Agreement, as reasonably determined based on objective criteria available to both Parties, including without limitation, the new entity’s financial position and product pipeline, (b) the product line of the entity that survives following the Change of Control includes a product in an Oral Formulation in the Field that is in clinical development which is indicated for the treatment of IBSC, CC, OIC (unless as to any such indication, the JSC has determined not to pursue Development for such indication) or any other indication for which the Product is then being Commercialized in the Territory pursuant to this Agreement.

(d) In the event of the insolvency or bankruptcy of Licensor that gives rise to Licensee’s right to terminate this Agreement in accordance with Section 14.3, Licensee may elect to terminate this Agreement or continue the Agreement (subject, to the extent applicable, Section 14.7). 


14.6 General Surviving Obligations. The rights and obligations set forth in this Agreement shall extend beyond the expiration or termination of the Agreement only to the extent expressly provided for herein, or to the extent that the survival of such rights or obligations are necessary to permit their complete fulfillment or discharge. Expiration or termination of this Agreement for any reason shall not (a) release either Party from any obligation that has accrued prior to the effective date of such expiration or termination (including without limitation the obligation to pay amounts accrued and due under this Agreement prior to the effective date of such termination but that are unpaid or become payable thereafter), (b) preclude either Party from claiming any other damages, compensation, or relief that it may be entitled to upon such expiration or termination, or (c) terminate any right to obtain performance of any obligation provided for in this Agreement that shall survive expiration or termination.

The Parties agree that the Parties, as licensees of such rights under this Agreement, shall retain and may fully exercise all of their rights and elections under the United States Bankruptcy Code. The Parties further agree that, in the event of the commencement of a bankruptcy proceeding by or against either Party under the United States Bankruptcy Code, the other Party will be entitled to a complete duplicate of (or complete access to, as appropriate) any such intellectual property and all embodiments of such intellectual property, which, if not already in the non-subject Party’s possession, shall be promptly delivered to it (a) upon any such commencement of a bankruptcy proceeding upon the non-subject Party’s written request therefor, unless the Party subject to such proceeding elects to continue to perform all of its obligations under this Agreement, or (b) if not delivered under clause (a) above, following the rejection of this Agreement by or on behalf of the Party subject to such proceeding upon written request therefor by the non-subject Party.

16. GRANT OF RIGHTS. 

 

16.1 License Grants from CyDex to Hospira.

(a) Licensed Patents. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, CyDex hereby grants to Hospira a world-wide, nontransferable (except with respect to the assignment provision in Section 12.13), sublicensable, [*] during the Term under the Licensed Patents, solely to [*] the Finished Product in the Territory. For the duration of the Exclusivity Period, such license shall be exclusive even as to CyDex and its Affiliates; after the expiration of the Exclusivity Period, such license shall be non-exclusive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that any Licensed Patents are licensed to CyDex or its Affiliates by a Third Party on a non-exclusive basis, Hospira acknowledges that the license granted to Hospira in this Section 2.1(a) to any such Licensed Patents shall during the Exclusivity Period be exclusive as to CyDex and its Affiliates and non-exclusive as to any Third Party licensee who obtained a license to any such Licensed Patents other than from CyDex or any of its Affiliates or any of their sublicensees. Hospira may not sublicense the Licensed Patents, except as expressly set forth in Section 2.2 and Section 2.3 below.

 

(b) Other Intellectual Property License. Subject to the terms and conditions of this Agreement, CyDex hereby grants to Hospira a world-wide, nontransferable (except with respect to the assignment provision in Section 12.13), sublicensable, [*] during the Term to all other CyDex Intellectual Property, including, without limitation, to CyDex’s rights in and to the Captisol Data Package, solely to [*] the Finished Product in the Territory. For the duration of the Exclusivity Period, such license shall be exclusive even as to CyDex and its Affiliates; after the expiration of the Exclusivity Period, such license shall be non-exclusive. Notwithstanding the foregoing, to the extent that any contents of the Captisol Data Package are licensed to CyDex or its Affiliates by a Third Party on a non-exclusive basis, the license granted to Hospira in this Section 2.1(b) to any such contents of the Captisol Data Package shall during the Exclusivity Period be exclusive as to CyDex and its Affiliates and non-exclusive as to any Third Party licensee who obtained a license to any such contents of the Captisol Data Package other than from CyDex or any of its Affiliates or any of their sublicensees. Hospira may not sublicense its rights to the Captisol Data Package, except as expressly set forth in Section 2.2 and Section 2.3 below.

 

(c) Scope of Licenses. CyDex grants no licenses or rights to use other than as expressly set forth herein. Hospira agrees not to use Captisol supplied hereunder other than as expressly set forth herein. Unless otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, CyDex grants no rights to Hospira to manufacture, import, sell or offer for sale bulk Captisol.

 

(d) Bankruptcy Code. All rights and licenses granted under or pursuant to this Agreement by CyDex to Hospira are, and shall otherwise be deemed to be, for purposes of Section 365(n) of the Bankruptcy Code, licenses of rights to “intellectual property” as defined under Section 101 of the Bankruptcy Code. The parties agree that Hospira, as a licensee of such rights under this Agreement, shall retain and may fully exercise all of its rights and elections under the Bankruptcy Code.

 

(e) Disclosure of and Compliance with Licenses. Exhibit C sets forth a list of all licenses under which, pursuant to Section 2.1, Hospira is granted a sub-license by CyDex and/or its Affiliates. If CyDex or any of its Affiliates enters into any future license agreements under which, pursuant to Section 2.1, Hospira is granted a sub-license by CyDex and/or its Affiliates, CyDex will promptly disclose such license agreements to Hospira. CyDex shall comply and shall cause its Affiliates to comply with the provisions of all such licenses, including without limitation all such licensing provisions of the [*].

 

16.2 Sublicensing. Hospira shall have the right to grant sublicenses to any Third Party (collectively “Sublicensees”) under the licenses granted to Hospira pursuant to Section 2.1; [*]

 

16.3 Contracting. Hospira and any of its Affiliates may manufacture the Finished Product (but, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, not the bulk Captisol if the manufacture of bulk Captisol would be Covered by a Licensed Patent for which there is a Valid Claim or if such manufacture would require a license to CyDex Intellectual Property) or contract the manufacture of the Finished Product (but, except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, not the manufacture of bulk Captisol if the manufacture of bulk Captisol would be Covered by a Licensed Patent for which there is a Valid Claim or if such manufacture would require a license to CyDex Intellectual Property) with any Third Party manufacturers selected by Hospira (each a “Contract Manufacturer”). To the extent necessary to engage a Contract Manufacturer for the Finished Product, Hospira shall be permitted under this Agreement to grant any such Contract Manufacturer a sublicense under the licenses granted to Hospira pursuant to Section 2.1; provided that Hospira shall comply with the requirements of Section 2.2. For the sake of clarity, Hospira, its Affiliates and any of their Contract Manufacturers may at all times manufacture [***] provided that the manufacture of such [*] is not Covered by a Licensed Patent for which there is a Valid Claim and such manufacture would not require a license to CyDex Intellectual Property.

 

16.4 Negative Covenants by CyDex.

(a) During the Exclusivity Period, neither CyDex nor any of its Affiliates shall directly themselves, or grant any Third Party any right or license to any of the CyDex Intellectual Property to research, develop, modify, make, have made, import, export, use, promote, market, distribute, package, offer for sale, sell, or otherwise commercially exploit the Finished Product or any Competing Product.

 

(b) During the Exclusivity Period, neither CyDex nor any of its Affiliates shall themselves nor provide any Third Party any assistance whatsoever to [*].

23. INDEMNIFICATION; INSURANCE; LIMITATION OF LIABILITY. 

 

23.1 General Indemnification by CyDex. CyDex shall defend, indemnify and hold Hospira and its Affiliates and Sublicensees, and each of their respective directors, officers, agents and employees, harmless from and against any and all losses, judgments, damages, liabilities, settlements, penalties, fines, costs and expenses (including the reasonable costs and expenses of attorneys and other professionals) (collectively “Losses”) incurred as a result of any claim, demand, action or other proceeding (each, a “Claim”) by a Third Party, to the extent such Losses arise out of: (a) the manufacture, use, handling, promotion, marketing, distribution, importation, sale or offering for sale of Captisol by CyDex, its Affiliates or any of their agents, or (b) CyDex’s breach of this Agreement, including without limitation any of its representations and warranties set forth in Section 8, or (c) any negligent or willful misconduct by CyDex or its Affiliates or any of their respective distributors, officers, directors employees or agents, in each case to the extent that such Losses are not due to Hospira’s or any of its Affiliates’ or Sublicensees’, or any of their respective directors’, officers’, agents’ or employees’ breach of this Agreement or negligence or willful misconduct.

 

23.2 General Indemnification by Hospira. Hospira shall defend, indemnify and hold CyDex and its Affiliates, and each of their respective directors, officers, agents and employees, harmless from and against any and all Losses incurred as a result of any Claim by a Third Party, to the extent such Losses arise out of: (a) the manufacture, use, handling, promotion, marketing, distribution, importation, sale or offering for sale of the Finished Product by Hospira, its Affiliates and Sublicensees, or (b) Hospira’s breach of this Agreement, including without limitation any of its representations and warranties set forth in Section 8, or (c) any negligent or willful misconduct by Hospira or its Affiliates or any of their respective distributors, officers, directors employees or agents, in each case to the extent that such Losses are not due to CyDex’s or any of its Affiliates’ or any of their respective directors’, officers’, agents’ or employees’ breach of this Agreement or negligence or willful misconduct.

 

23.4 Procedure.

 

(a) The person intending to claim indemnification under Section 9 (an “Indemnified Party”) shall promptly notify the other party (the “Indemnifying Party”) of any Claim in respect of which the Indemnified Party intends to claim such indemnification, and a reasonable explanation of the basis for the Claim and the amount of alleged Losses to the extent of the facts then known by the Indemnified Party. (Notwithstanding the foregoing, no delay or deficiency on the part of the Indemnified Party in so notifying the Indemnifying Party will relieve the Indemnifying Party of any liability or obligation under this Agreement except to the extent the Indemnifying Party has suffered actual prejudice directly caused by the delay or other deficiency.) The Indemnifying Party shall assume the defense thereof; provided, however, that if the Indemnifying Party assumes the defense, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to employ counsel separate from counsel employed by the Indemnifying Party in any such action and to participate in the defense thereof, but the fees and expenses of such counsel employed by the Indemnified Party shall be at the sole cost and expense of the Indemnified Party unless the Indemnifying Party consents to the retention of such counsel or unless the named parties to any action or proceeding include both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party and a representation of both the Indemnifying Party and the Indemnified Party by the same counsel would be inappropriate due to the actual or potential differing interests between them. And provided further that, if the Indemnifying Party shall fail to assume the defense of and reasonably defend such Claim, the Indemnified Party shall have the right to retain or assume control of such defense and the Indemnifying Party shall pay (as incurred and on demand) the fees and expenses of counsel retained by the Indemnified Party.

 

(b) The Indemnifying Party shall not be liable for the indemnification of any Claim settled (or resolved by consent to the entry of judgment) without the written consent of the Indemnifying Party (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed). Also, if the Indemnifying Party shall control the defense of any such Claim, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right to settle such Claim; provided, that the Indemnifying Party shall obtain the prior written consent (which shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed) of the Indemnified Party before entering into any settlement of (or resolving by consent to the entry of judgment upon) such Claim unless (A) there is no finding or admission of any violation of law or any violation of the rights of any Third Party by an Indemnified Party, no requirement that the Indemnified Party admit fault or culpability, and no adverse effect on any other claims that may be made by or against the Indemnified Party and (B) the sole relief provided is monetary damages that are paid in full by the Indemnifying Party and such settlement does not require the Indemnified Party to take (or refrain from taking) any action.

 

(c) Regardless of who controls the defense, the other party hereto shall reasonably cooperate in the defense as may be requested. Without limitation, the Indemnified Party, and its directors, officers, advisers, agents and employees, shall reasonably cooperate with the Indemnifying Party and its legal representatives in the investigations of any Claim.

 

23.5 Insurance. CyDex will procure and maintain, at its own expense, for the duration of the Agreement, and for [*] thereafter if written on a claims made or occurrence reported form, the types of insurance specified below with carriers rated [*]. Best or like rating agencies:

  a. Workers’ Compensation accordance with applicable statutory requirements and shall provide a waiver of subrogation in favor of Hospira;

  g. Cargo Legal Liability insurance covering all risks of physical loss or damage to cargo handled by CyDex. The limit of liability shall not be less than $[*]. 

 

23.6 Limitation of Liability. EXCEPT FOR (1) PERSONAL INJURY, INCLUDING DEATH, (2) TANGIBLE PROPERTY DAMAGE, (3) EACH PARTY’S INDEMNIFICATION OBLIGATIONS, (4) DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF AN INTENTIONAL BREACH OF THE CONFIDENTIALITY OBLIGATIONS HEREIN, (5) DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF CYDEX’S BREACH OF SECTION 2.4, AND (6) DAMAGES FOR WHICH CYDEX IS RESPONSIBLE PURSUANT SECTION 3.6, 3.7 OR 6.4.

21. CONFIDENTIALITY. 

 

21.1 Definition. Hospira and CyDex each recognizes that, during the Term, it may be necessary for a party (the “Disclosing Party”) to provide Confidential Information (as defined herein) to the other party (the “Receiving Party”) that is highly valuable, the disclosure of which would be highly prejudicial to such party. The disclosure and use of Confidential Information will be governed by the provisions of this Section 7. Neither Hospira nor CyDex shall use the other’s Confidential Information except as expressly permitted in this Agreement. For purposes of this Agreement, “Confidential Information” means all information disclosed by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party in any form whatsoever, including but not limited to product specifications, data, know-how, formulations, product concepts, sample materials, business and technical information, financial data, batch records, trade secrets, processes, techniques, algorithms, programs, designs, drawings, and any other information related to a party’s present or future products, sales, suppliers, customers, employees, investors or business. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, CyDex’s Confidential Information includes all materials provided as part of the Captisol Data Package.

 

21.2 Obligation. CyDex and Hospira agree that they will disclose the other’s Confidential Information to its (or its respective Affiliates’) own officers, employees, consultants and agents only if and to the extent reasonably necessary to carry out their respective responsibilities under this Agreement or in accordance with the exercise of their rights under this Agreement, and such disclosure shall be limited to the extent reasonably possible consistent with such responsibilities and rights. Except as provided in the previous sentence, neither party shall disclose Confidential Information of the other to any Third Party without the other’s prior written consent. Any disclosure to a Third Party shall be pursuant to the terms of a non-disclosure agreement substantially similar to the requirements of this Section 7. The party which disclosed Confidential Information of the other to any Third Party shall be responsible and liable for any disclosure or use by such Third Party (or its disclosees) which would have violated this Agreement if committed by the party itself. Neither party shall use Confidential Information of the other except as expressly allowed by and for the purposes of this Agreement. Each party shall take such action to preserve the confidentiality of each other’s Confidential Information as it would customarily take to preserve the confidentiality of its own Confidential Information (but in no event less than a reasonable standard of care). Unless otherwise specified in this Agreement and subject to terms and conditions in this Agreement, if so requested by the other party a party shall promptly return all relevant records and materials in its possession or control containing or embodying the other party’s Confidential Information (including all copies and extracts of documents); provided, however, that each party may retain one archival copy (and such electronic copies that exist as part of the party’s computer systems, network storage systems and electronic backup systems) of such records and materials solely to be able to monitor its obligations that survive under this Agreement.

 

21.3 Exceptions. The use and non-disclosure obligations set forth in this Section 7 shall not apply to any Confidential Information, or portion thereof, that the Receiving Party can demonstrate by appropriate documentation:

(a) at the time of disclosure is in the public domain;

(b) after disclosure, becomes part of the public domain, by publication or otherwise, through no fault of the Receiving Party or its disclosees;

(c) is independently developed by Receiving Party personnel with no reference or access to the Confidential Information; or

(d) is made available to the Receiving Party by an independent third party without obligation of confidentiality, provided, however, that to the Receiving Party’s knowledge, such information was not obtained by said third party, directly or indirectly, from the Disclosing Party hereunder.

 

In addition, the Receiving Party may disclose information to a court or ADR forum in the process of seeking to enforce through such court or ADR forum its own rights under this Agreement, and also may disclose information that is required to be disclosed by law, by a valid order of a court or by order or regulation of a governmental agency including but not limited to, regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission, or in the course of litigation, provided that in all cases the Receiving Party shall give the other party prompt notice of the pending disclosure and make a reasonable effort to obtain, or to assist the Disclosing Party in obtaining, a protective order or confidential-treatment order preventing or limiting (to the greatest possible extent and for the longest possible period) the disclosure and/or requiring that the Confidential Information so disclosed be used only for the purposes for which the law or regulation required, or for which the order was issued.

 

21.4 Injunction. Each party agrees that should it breach or threaten to breach any provisions of this Section 7, the Disclosing Party will suffer irreparable damages and its remedy at law will be inadequate. Upon any breach or threatened breach by the Receiving Party of this Section 7, the Disclosing Party shall be entitled to seek from any court of competent jurisdiction temporary, preliminary and/or permanent injunctive relief in addition to any other remedy which it may have, without need to post any bond or security, in addition to any and all other legal and equitable rights and remedies available to the Disclosing Party.

 

21.5 Public Announcements. If a press release is required by law or the applicable rules of a national securities exchange to be issued upon execution of this Agreement or reasonably soon thereafter, the parties will mutually agree on such a press release. Neither party shall make any subsequent public announcement concerning this Agreement or the terms hereof not previously made public without the prior written approval of the other party with regard to the form, content, and precise timing of such announcement, except as may be required to be made by either party in order to comply with applicable law, regulations, court orders, or tax or securities filings. Such consent shall not be unreasonably withheld or delayed by such other party. Before any such public announcement, the party wishing to make the announcement will submit a draft of the proposed announcement to the other party in sufficient time to enable such other party to consider and comment thereon. The parties agree that a party may disclose this Agreement’s existence and terms, and material developments or material information generated under this Agreement, in (i) securities filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission (or equivalent foreign agency) to the extent required by law, or (ii) under conditions of confidentiality/nonuse in connection with investment and similar corporate transactions. Notwithstanding the above, once a public announcement has been made, either party shall be free to disclose to third parties any information contained in said public announcement.

26.4 Force Majeure. Neither party shall be liable for failure to perform, or delay in the performance of, its obligations under this Agreement (other than payment obligations) when such failure or delay is caused by an event of force majeure. For purposes of this Agreement, an event of force majeure means any event or circumstance beyond the reasonable control of the affected party, including but not limited to, war, insurrection, riot, fire, flood or other unusual weather condition, explosion, act of God, peril of the sea, strike, lockout or other industrial disturbance, sabotage, embargo, act of governmental authority, compliance with governmental order or national defense requirements, or inability to obtain fuel, power, raw materials, labor or transportation facilities.

Unless otherwise provided, all notices shall be sent:

 

12.8 Use of Name; Publicity. No party shall use the name, trademark, trade name or logo of the other party, its Affiliates or their respective employee(s) in any publicity, promotion, news release or public disclosure relating to this Agreement or its subject matter, without the prior express written permission of the other party, except as may be required by law or the rules of NASDAQ or the New York Stock Exchange. In the event of a required public announcement, the party making such announcement shall provide the other party with a copy of the proposed text before such announcement sufficiently in advance of the scheduled release of such announcement to afford such other party a reasonable opportunity to review and comment upon the proposed text and the timing of such disclosure.

 

12.9 Governing Law. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the internal laws of the State of New York (without giving effect to any conflicts of law principles that require the application of the law of a different state). The United Nations Convention on the International Sale of Goods is hereby expressly excluded.

 

12.10 Entire Agreement; Amendment. This Agreement, together with the Quality Agreement, constitutes the entire agreement of the parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes any and all prior or contemporaneous agreements, written or oral, between CyDex (and/or any of its Affiliates) and Hospira (and/or any of its Affiliates) relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof; provided, that any confidentiality/nonuse provisions of any prior agreement are not superseded and will remain in effect solely with respect to information provided under the terms of such prior agreement that is not subsequently provided to a Party under the terms of this Agreement.

12.12 Waiver. The rights of either party under this Agreement may be exercised from time to time, singularly or in combination, and the exercise of one or more such rights shall not be deemed to be a waiver of any one or more of the others. No waiver of any breach of a term, provision or condition of this Agreement shall be deemed to have been made by either party unless such waiver is addressed in writing and signed by an authorized representative of that party. The failure of either party to insist upon the strict performance of any of the terms, provisions or conditions of this Agreement, or to exercise any option contained in this Agreement, shall not be construed as a waiver or relinquishment for the future of any such term, provision, condition or option or the waiver or relinquishment of any other term, provision, condition or option.

 

12.13 Severability. If any provision of this Agreement is determined by a final and binding court or arbitration judgment to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable to any extent, such provision shall not be not affected or impaired up to the limits of such invalidity, illegality or unenforceability; the validity, legality and enforceability of the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall not be affected or impaired in any way; and the parties agree to negotiate in good faith to replace such invalid, illegal and unenforceable provision (or portion of provision) with a valid, legal and enforceable provision that achieves, to the greatest lawful extent under this Agreement, the economic, business and other purposes of such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision (or portion of provision).

 

12.14 Assignment.
