(b) Damages. In the event (i) any Product is diverted (x) by Licensee or its Affiliate sublicensees, or (y) by another party with the assistance of the Licensee or its Affiliate sublicensees, in each case to any country outside the Territory in any manner described in Section 7.2(a), and (i) a patent covering such Product has been granted in such country or in the country(ies) outside the Teritory in which such Product is manufactured (collectively the circumstance described by clause (i) and (ii), a “Diversion Event“), then in addition to any other remedies Gilead may be entitled to at law or in equity, Gilead shall be entitled to injunctive relief and to receive lost profits associated with the Diversion Event, which such lost profits will be determined by taking into consideration the following factors: (1) the quantity of Product that is the subject of such Diversion Event; (2) the average profit Gilead receives from its sale of such Product in the country(ies) outside the Teritory into which such Product was sold or otherwise transferred, and (3) any erosion in Gilead’s market share in such country(ies) outside the Territory as a result of such Diversion Event. This Section 7.2(b) shall survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement with respect to Products sold prior to such expiration or termination.
[Added by Amendment 1] If any party becomes aware of a suspected occurrence of any prohibited activity described in Section 7.2(a)(i)-(vii), such party will notify the other parties promptly, and following such notification, the parties will confer. Gilead (except in the case of Patents relating to EVG, EVG Product, EVG Combination Product or TAF Quad that are subject to the Japan Tobacco Agreement and controlled by Japan Tobacco) will have the right, but not the obligation, to bring an infringement or other action at its own expense, in its own name, and entirely under its own direction and control. Licensee will reasonably assist Gilead (or, where applicable, Japan Tobacco) in such actions or proceedings if so requested, and will lend its name to such actions or proceedings if required by law in order for Gilead (or Japan Tobacco) to bring such an action, which obligations shall survive the expiration or termination of the Agreement.

(b) FCPA and UK Bribery Act. Licensee covenants and agrees that neither the Licensee, nor any of its affiliates, nor any of their respective directors, officers, employees or agents (all of the foregoing, including affiliates collectively, “Licensee Representatives“😉 has taken any action, directly or indirectly, that would result in a violation by such persons of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act of 1977, as amended (such act, including the rules and regulations thereunder, the “FCPA“), the U.K. Bribery Act of 2010 (“Bribery Act“), or any other applicable
antibribery or anticorruption laws, rules or regulations (collectively with the FCPA and the Bribery Act, the “Anticorruption Laws“).

7.5 Covenant Concerning Certain Gilead Patents. Gilead covenants and agrees that it shall not, at any time during the term of this Agreement, bring any claim or proceeding of any kind or nature against Licensee in relation to any of the pending and issued patents identified in Appendix 4 hereto (the “Emtricitabine Patents”) to the extent that Licensee decides to make, use, sell, have sold and export any Product in the Territory that may infringe any claims covering the manufacture, use and sale of emtricitabine (or “FTC”) contained in such Emtricitabine Patents. In the event Licensee terminates its license with respect to TDF pursuant to Section 10.5 (a “TDF Termination”), Gilead covenants and agrees that it shall not, during the term of this Agreement, bring a claim or proceeding of any kind against Licensee in relation to the Emtricitabine Patents with respect to Licensee’s manufacture, use or sale of Products that incorporate TDF and FTC as active pharmaceutical ingredients (such Products, “TDF/FTC Products”) in the TDF Territory. For clarity, upon a TDF Termination, nothing set forth in this Section 7.5 shall be interpreted to prevent Gilead from enforcing any right, title or interest in any of its proprietary rights covering TDF (including the TDF Patents) against Licensee with respect to its activities related to TDF/FTC Products in the TDF–TAF Territory, or from enforcing any right, title or interest in any of its proprietary rights covering FTC (including the Emtricitabine Patents) against Licensee with respect to its activities related to TDF/FTC Products outside the TDF–TAF Territory.
7.6 EXCEPT AS OTHERWISE EXPRESSLY PROVIDED IN THIS AGREEMENT, NEITHER GILEAD NOR MPP MAKES ANY REPRESENTATIONS OR WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO THE LICENSED TECHNOLOGY, PRODUCTS, OR ANY OTHER MATTER UNDER THIS AGREEMENT INCLUDING, WITHOUT LIMITATION, WARRANTIES OF NON–INFRINGEMENT IN THE TERRITORY. Gilead and MPP also do not give any warranty, express or implied, with regard to the safety or efficacy of API or the Product and it shall be the sole responsibility of the Licensee to ensure such safety or efficacy.
