Neither this License nor any rights or licenses granted hereunder may be assigned, transferred, delegated, sub-licensed or time shared without the prior written consent of the LICENSOR.

If any provision of this License Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the Agreement will be valid and enforceable and the LICENSOR and LICENSEE will negotiate in good faith a substitute, valid and enforceable provision which most nearly puts into effect the intent of the LICENSOR and LICENSEE.
8. NO WAIVER
This Agreement may not be altered, modified, or amended in any way except in writing signed by both parties. The failure of a party to enforce any provision of the Agreement will not be construed to be a waiver of the right of such party to thereafter enforce that provision or any other provision or right.
