In the event SnowShore obtains a patent having one or more claims applicable to the
Standard, SnowShore shall grant to other entities a royalty free, non-exclusive license

patent, whenever issued, that is not necessary to practice the Standard, and (b) does not
extend to any entity or a subsidiary of such entity, that will not grant to SnowShore a
reciprocal license to manufacture, use and/or sell products conforming to the Standard upon
the terms offered hereunder with respect to patents owned by such entity or a subsidiary or
organization controlled by such entity.
