1. License for Purposes of Evaluation and Developing Applications. Licensor hereby grants you a fully-paid, non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, limited license (without the right to sublicense), under Licensor's applicable intellectual property rights to view, download, use and reproduce the Specification only for the purpose of internal evaluation. This includes developing applications intended to run on an implementation of the Specification provided that such applications do not themselves implement any portion(s) of the Specification.
2. License for the Distribution of Compliant Implementations. Licensor also grants you a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide, fully paid-up, royalty free, limited license (without the right to sublicense) under any applicable copyrights or, subject to the provisions of subsection 4 below, patent rights it may have covering the Specification to create and/or distribute an Independent Implementation of the Specification that: (a) fully implements the Specification including all its required interfaces and functionality; (b) does not modify, subset, superset or otherwise extend the Licensor Name Space, or include any public or protected packages, classes, Java interfaces, fields or methods within the Licensor Name Space other than those required/authorized by the Specification or Specifications being implemented; and (c) passes the Technology Compatibility Kit (including satisfying the requirements of the applicable TCK Users Guide) for such Specification ("Compliant Implementation"). In addition, the foregoing license is expressly conditioned on your not acting outside its scope. No license is granted hereunder for any other purpose (including, for example, modifying the Specification, other than to the extent of your fair use rights, or distributing the Specification to third parties).
3. Pass-through Conditions.

4. Reciprocity Concerning Patent Licenses. With respect to any patent claims covered by the license granted under subparagraph 2 above that would be infringed by all technically feasible implementations of the Specification, such license is conditioned upon your offering on fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory terms, to any party seeking it from You, a perpetual, non-exclusive, non-transferable, worldwide license under Your patent rights that are or would be infringed by all technically feasible implementations of the Specification to develop, distribute and use a Compliant Implementation.
5. Definitions. For the purposes of this Agreement: "Independent Implementation" shall mean an implementation of the Specification that neither derives from any of Licensor's source code or binary code materials nor, except with an appropriate and separate license from Licensor, includes any of Licensor's source code or binary code materials; "Licensor Name Space" shall mean the public class or interface declarations whose names begin with "java", "javax", "javax.jcr" or their equivalents in any subsequent naming convention adopted by Licensor through the Java Community Process, or any recognized successors or replacements thereof; and "Technology Compatibility Kit" or "TCK" shall mean the test suite and accompanying TCK User's Guide provided by Licensor which corresponds to the particular version of the Specification being tested.
6. Termination. This Agreement will terminate immediately without notice from Licensor if you fail to comply with any material provision of or act outside the scope of the licenses granted above.
