FOURTH AMENDMENT

TO SEARCH AND ADVERTISING SERVICES AND SALES AGREEMENT

This Fourth Amendment to Search and Advertising Services and Sales Agreement (this "Fourth Amendment") is entered into to be effective as of December 13, 2010 ("Fourth Amendment Effective Date") by and between Yahoo! Inc., a Delaware corporation ("Yahoo!"), and Microsoft Corporation, a Washington corporation ("Microsoft").

WHEREAS, Yahoo! and Microsoft are parties to that certain Search and Advertising Services and Sales Agreement, entered into as of December 4, 2009, as amended (collectively, the "Agreement"); and

WHEREAS, Yahoo! and Microsoft desire to further amend the Agreement as set forth herein.

NOW, THEREFORE, in consideration of the mutual promises contained herein, the parties agree as follows:

1. Definitions. Capitalized terms used but not defined herein have the same meanings given in the Agreement.

2. API Calls. Section 2.4.6 of the Agreement is amended by replacing the words "calendar quarter prior to the Effective Date" in the fourth and seventh sentences with the words "the second calendar quarter of 2010." Yahoo! represents that the Historical Call Rate during the second calendar quarter of 2010 is consistent with Yahoo!'s past practices (including those of the calendar quarter prior to the Effective Date) and that Yahoo! did not materially change the Historical Call Rate after the Effective Date.

3. Revenue from Party's Own Paid Listings. The third sentence of Section 2.4.15(e) of the Agreement is deleted and replaced with the following:

"Each party must pay for its own Paid Listings (i.e., neither party will extend itself any favorable pricing and will be billed for its Paid Listings the same as any other Customer) and revenues will be allocated between the parties in accordance with this Agreement as if such revenues were gross revenues earned from the Services."

4. Other Costs. The parties agree to waive the $50 million limit during each Annual Period set forth in Section 8.2.5(y) of the Agreement; provided, however, that this waiver does not alter or increase the $150 million aggregate total reimbursable expenses limit set forth in Section 8.2.5.

5. [*]. The first sentence of Section 10.2.4 shall be deleted and replaced with the following:

"[*]."

6. [*]. The third sentence of Section 10.2.5 of the Agreement is deleted and replaced with the following:

"[*]."

Search Data in connection with display advertising services contained in Section 13.1.1), Microsoft may use Covered Data in connection with Paid Search Services, Contextual Advertising Services and Mobile Paid Search Services implemented in (1) the United States and Canada for the limited purposes stated in Exhibit K (and then only in the manner described therein) and (2) the United Kingdom, Ireland, France and India for the limited purposes stated in Exhibit K, Section A (Pooled Use of Covered Data for [*]) and then only in the manner described in Exhibit K, Section A."

This Fourth Amendment will be governed and construed, to the extent applicable, in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without regard to its conflict of law principles.
