Within ninety (90) days after the end of each fiscal year of the Payor, or upon such other payment schedule as Alibaba and Purchaser may otherwise agree (the "Payment Date"), the Payor shall pay to Alibaba IT (A50) and/or to Alibaba (as directed by Alibaba) the Software Technology Services Fee, the Alipay Royalty, and the New FIG Royalty each as owed during such fiscal year or other agreed-upon period.

The Payor shall pay all amounts due under this Amended IPLA in Renminbi in the manner to be further agreed by the Parties.

(b) The "Accrued Deposit Amount" shall initially be zero. If the Target Amount is greater than the Fee/Royalty Sum, Purchaser shall deposit with and/or loan to Alibaba an amount equal to the difference between the Fee/Royalty Sum and the Target Amount, and the Accrued Deposit Amount shall be increased by the amount of such deposit. Alibaba shall, from time to time upon written request of the Purchaser, deliver to the Purchaser one or more notes and/or certificates of deposit evidencing any loans and/or deposits, respectively, made pursuant to the preceding sentence.

(c) The "Accrued Excess Fee Amount" shall initially be zero. If the Adjusted Target Amount is less than the Fee/Royalty Sum, Purchaser shall pay only the Target Amount to Alibaba on the Payment Date, the difference between the Target Amount and the Fee/Royalty Sum paid shall be deferred and no longer due as of such Payment Date, and the Accrued Excess Fee Amount shall be increased by the amount of such difference. The Accrued Excess Fee Amount shall remain an outstanding obligation of the Purchaser unless and until paid or extinguished in accordance with this Amended IPLA. Upon any payment of any Alipay Royalty, New FIG Royalty and Software Technology Services Fee in accordance with this Article V that in the aggregate for a given Alipay fiscal year is less than the amount that would have been paid had the Accrued Excess Fee Amount been zero, Purchaser will pay to Alibaba an amount of the Accrued Excess Fee Amount equal to such difference, and the Accrued Excess Fee Amount shall be reduced by such amount.

ARTICLE VI

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY PROSECUTION AND ENFORCEMENT

Section 6.1 IP Prosecution and Registration.

(a) Alibaba shall have the sole control and discretion over the filing for, prosecution and maintenance of any Alipay-Related IP and New FIG Business-Related IP.

(b) Alibaba shall have the first right, at its option, but subject to the exceptions set forth in Section 6.1(c), to control at its own expense the filing for, and prosecution and maintenance of, any Alipay-Exclusive IP or New FIG Business-Exclusive IP ("Alipay-Exclusive Prosecution Function"). For so long as there are personnel employed or engaged by Alibaba or its Subsidiaries (or operating under the management or supervision of a manager or supervisor employed or engaged by Alibaba or its Subsidiaries) who have responsibility for patent applications, domain name registrations, and/or trademark registrations of Purchaser or its Subsidiaries, or that comprise Alipay-Exclusive IP or New FIG Business-Exclusive IP (as the Parties acknowledge to be the case as of the Effective Date), such personnel will (i) continue to have access to the prosecution files and docket system to review the status of any filings for, and prosecution of, the Alipay Exclusive IP and the New FIG-Business Exclusive IP and (ii) have the responsibility and an obligation to raise with Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary and Alibaba any objections to the manner in which any Alipay-Exclusive IP or New FIG Business-Exclusive IP is being handled, including whether and how any Alipay-Exclusive Patents, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Names, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Names, Alipay-Exclusive Trademarks or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademarks are being filed for, prosecuted and/or maintained. Alibaba shall, at Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's request and at reasonable intervals, provide Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary with information reasonably requested by Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary regarding the status of filing, prosecution and maintenance of any Alipay-Exclusive Patents, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Names, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Names, Alipay-Exclusive Trademarks or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademarks, or allow appropriate personnel of Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to directly access such information (in either event, permitting the appropriate personnel of Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary or their outside counsel reasonable access to the files, or copies of the files, of the Alipay-Exclusive Patents, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Names, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Names, Alipay-Exclusive Trademarks and New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademarks) and considering, in good faith, any suggestions or recommendations such personnel or counsel may have with respect to the conduct of the prosecution and maintenance of such Alipay Exclusive-Patents, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Names, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Names, Alipay-Exclusive Trademarks and New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademarks.


34


(c) If Purchaser or a designated Subsidiary establishes its own Intellectual Property Rights group capable of handling the filing for, or prosecution or maintenance of, patent applications, domain names, and/or trademark registrations ("IP Function Separation"), the Parties shall, at the request of Purchaser or Alibaba, discuss in good faith a process and procedures by which such group will assume responsibility for the Alipay-Exclusive Prosecution Function. The Parties acknowledge that if such process and procedures authorize Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to take actions in the name of Alibaba or its Affiliates, such process and procedures will include reasonable protections for Alibaba and its Affiliates.

(d) If, after but notwithstanding the IP Function Separation, Purchaser elects not to assume responsibility for the Prosecution Function, Alibaba will (i) at Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's request, at reasonable intervals, provide Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary with information reasonably requested by Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary regarding the status of filing, prosecution and maintenance of any Alipay-Exclusive Patents, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Names, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Names, Alipay-Exclusive Trademarks or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademarks, or (ii) allow appropriate personnel of Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to access such information (e.g., through access to Alibaba's docket). If personnel of Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary do not have such access, and Alibaba then elects to abandon, dedicate to the public, or otherwise allow to lapse any Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark, Alibaba shall use commercially reasonable efforts to notify Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary of such election, and Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary shall then have the right, at Alibaba's election, (i) to undertake the prosecution and maintenance of such Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark, at Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's own expense, in the name of Alibaba, or (ii) to receive an assignment to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, subject to Section 2.7(a), of Alibaba's entire right, title and interest in and to such Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark, together with the right to recover any damages for past infringement of any such Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent. If Alibaba elects to allow Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to prosecute an Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark in the name of Alibaba, such prosecution shall be subject to Alibaba's approval, which approval shall not be unreasonably withheld. In any event, Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary shall, at Alibaba's reasonable request, provide Alibaba with reasonable information regarding the status of any applications or registrations for which Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary has undertaken the prosecution or maintenance or which Alibaba has assigned to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary. Until such time as Alibaba elects to abandon, dedicate to the public, or otherwise allow to lapse any Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark, Alibaba will, at Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's reasonable request, use commercially reasonable efforts to include notifications in its applicable Intellectual Property dockets, and to instruct its outside counsel responsible for Intellectual Property prosecution to include in its applicable Intellectual Property dockets maintained on behalf of Alibaba, that no Alipay-Exclusive Patent, New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, Alipay-Exclusive Domain Name, New FIG Business-Exclusive Domain Name, Alipay-Exclusive Trademark or New FIG Business-Exclusive Trademark expressly identified as such in the applicable docket should be abandoned, dedicated to the public or otherwise allowed to lapse without providing advanced notice to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary.


35


(e) Notwithstanding the foregoing, no failure of Alibaba to provide to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary any notice or other information contemplated, or of Alibaba or its outside counsel to include any notifications in any Intellectual Property docket pursuant to this Article VI shall create any liability on the part of Alibaba or any of its Affiliates in excess of Twenty-Five Thousand United States Dollars (US$25,000) per patent or patent application, not to exceed One Hundred Twenty Five Thousand United States Dollars (US$125,000) per patent family.

Section 6.2 Patent Enforcement. Alibaba will have the sole control and discretion over the enforcement or defense of any Alipay-Related Patent and New FIG Business-Related Patent. In the event that Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary reasonably believes that any Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent is being infringed by a third Person, Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary shall promptly notify Alibaba in writing, or in the event that a declaratory judgment action is brought against Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries with respect to an Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent (or a reexamination request or post-grant challenge is filed against an Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent), it shall promptly notify Alibaba in writing.


36


(a) As between the Parties hereto, Alibaba shall have the initial right (but not the obligation) to control the enforcement of the Alipay-Exclusive Patents and New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, or defend any declaratory judgment action against Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries (or reexamination request or post-grant challenge) with respect thereto (each, for purposes of this Section 6.2, an "Enforcement Action"). All recoveries obtained by Alibaba from an Enforcement Action pursuant to this Section 6.2(a) will be first used to reimburse Alibaba for its out-of-pocket litigation expenses (including but not limited to any attorneys' fees and court costs) in connection with the Enforcement Action and one hundred percent (100%) of any remaining recoveries will go to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary. For clarity, any such recoveries shall be included in the consolidated pre-tax income of the Purchaser Group for the applicable fiscal year in which they are accrued, and shall be taken into consideration in the calculation of the Alipay Royalty and New FIG Royalty pursuant to Article V. At the request of Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, Alibaba shall keep Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary reasonably informed of the progress of any such Enforcement Action brought or defended by Alibaba pursuant to this Section 6.2(a).

(b) In the event that Alibaba does not initiate an Enforcement Action to enforce the Alipay-Exclusive Patents or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents against a commercially significant infringement by a third Person in the field of the FIG Holdco Business ("Qualifying Infringement"), within ninety (90) days after a formal, written request by Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to initiate such Enforcement Action, Alipay or its designated Subsidiary (in the case of an Alipay-Exclusive Patent) or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary (in the case of a New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent) may initiate an Enforcement Action against such infringement. In the event that Alibaba does not promptly undertake, at Alibaba's expense, the defense of a declaratory judgment action against Purchaser or any of its Subsidiaries (or a reexamination request or post-grant challenge) with respect to any of the Alipay Exclusive Patents or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, Alipay or its designated Subsidiary (in the case of an Alipay-Exclusive Patent) or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary (in the case of a New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent) shall have the right to do so at its own expense. Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, as applicable, must consult with Alibaba prior to initiating any Enforcement Action or defending any declaratory judgment action (or reexamination) pursuant to this Section 6.2(b) with respect to an Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, and shall not assert any Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent against any third Person if, in the written opinion of outside patent counsel mutually agreed to by the Parties, it is more likely than not that such third Person is not infringing the Alipay Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent in the field of the FIG Holdco Business. Alibaba shall have the right (but not the obligation) to cooperate, at Alipay's or its designated Subsidiary's expense or Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's expense, in any Enforcement Action initiated or defended by Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary under this Section 6.2(b) (including joining such Enforcement Action as a party plaintiff if necessary or desirable for initiation or continuation of such Enforcement Action) and shall have the right (but not the obligation) to participate and be represented in any such Enforcement Action with counsel of its choice at Alibaba's own expense. In any event, Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary shall keep Alibaba reasonably informed of the progress of any such Enforcement Action initiated or defended by Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary pursuant to this Section 6.2(b) and, upon Alibaba's request, shall seek Alibaba's input on any substantive submissions or positions it takes in the litigation regarding the scope, validity and enforceability of the Alipay-Exclusive Patents and New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents. Alipay or its designed Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, as applicable, shall have the right to enter into an agreement in settlement of any Enforcement Action brought or defended pursuant to this Section 6.2(b), including the grant of a license within the field of the Alipay Business (in the case of an Alipay-Exclusive Patent) or New FIG Business (in the case of a New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent), but shall not enter into any settlement agreement which would impose any obligation or cost on, or otherwise adversely affect, Alibaba or any of its Subsidiaries (for clarity, for purposes or the foregoing, the Parties acknowledge that a non-exclusive license consistent with this Amended IPLA that is granted to the defendant in any such Enforcement Action shall not be regarded as adversely affecting Alibaba or its Subsidiaries), or make any admission relating to the validity or enforceability of any Alipay-Exclusive Patents or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, without the prior written consent of Alibaba, such consent not to be unreasonably withheld or delayed. All recoveries obtained by Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary from an Enforcement Action pursuant to this Section 6.2(b) will be first used to reimburse Alibaba for its out-of-pocket litigation-related expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees and court costs) in connection with the Enforcement Action and any remaining recoveries will be retained one hundred percent (100%) by Purchaser and/or its Subsidiaries (as designated by Purchaser) and included in the consolidated pre-tax income of the Purchaser Group in the fiscal year in which such recoveries are accrued.


37


(c) Notwithstanding anything set forth in Section 6.2(b), Alibaba may, in its sole discretion, refuse to cooperate with Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary in connection with, or otherwise participate in, any Enforcement Action ("Right of Refusal"), and Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary shall not seek to join Alibaba or any Alibaba Subsidiary as a party in any Enforcement Action. In the event Alibaba exercises its Right of Refusal with respect to any Alipay-Exclusive Patents or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patents, then, upon Alipay's or its designated Subsidiary's or Purchaser's or its designated Subsidiary's written request, Alibaba agrees to cooperate with Alipay or designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to determine if the assignment of any Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent to Alipay or its designated Subsidiary, or to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, as applicable, or waiver of Alibaba's right to enforce the subject Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent would be necessary for the purposes of Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary to pursue or defend the applicable Enforcement Action. If Alibaba and Alipay or its designated Subsidiary , or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary , determine that such an assignment of any Alipay-Exclusive Patent(s) or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent(s), as applicable, or waiver of Alibaba's rights is necessary, then Alibaba will elect, in its sole discretion and subject to the unanimous approval of the Alibaba Independent Committee as to which option to elect: (i) to join in the applicable Enforcement Action, (ii) file appropriate papers with the applicable court confirming that it waives its rights to enforce the applicable Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent and agrees that Alipay or its designated Subsidiary or Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary may enforce such Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent, as applicable, or (iii) to assign to Alipay or its designated Subsidiary, or to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, as applicable, at Alibaba's sole cost and expense and subject to Section 2.7(a), Alibaba's entire right, title and interest in and to such Alipay-Exclusive Patent(s) or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent(s), together with the right to recover any damages for past infringement of such Alipay-Exclusive Patent(s) or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent(s). For clarity, any Alipay-Exclusive Patent or New FIG Business-Exclusive Patent assigned to Alipay or its designated Subsidiary, or to Purchaser or its designated Subsidiary, pursuant to this Section 6.2(c) will constitute Alipay-Retained IP licensed to Alibaba and its Subsidiaries pursuant to Section 2.7(a).

Section 9.1 Confidential Information. Each Party (the "Receiving Party") shall use the same standard of care to prevent the public disclosure and dissemination of the Confidential Information of the other Party or its Subsidiaries (the "Disclosing Party") as the Receiving Party uses to protect its own comparable Confidential Information. "Confidential Information" of a Party means confidential, non-public marketing plans, product plans, business strategies, financial information, forecasts, Personal Information, Highly Sensitive Information, customer lists and customer data, technical documents and information and any similar confidential, non-public materials and information, regarding such Party and its Affiliates, or their representatives or customers, disclosed by the Disclosing Party to the Receiving Party under or in connection with the IPLA or this Amended IPLA, whether orally, electronically, in writing, or otherwise, including copies thereof, in each case to the extent expressly marked in writing as "Confidential," or, if disclosed orally, identified as confidential at the time of disclosure and set forth or summarized in a written document expressly marked as "Confidential" delivered to the Receiving Party no later than thirty (30) days after the date of the initial oral disclosure thereof, or, if not so marked or identified as "Confidential," shall nevertheless be regarded as Confidential Information if a reasonable person under the circumstances would know the information is considered confidential by the Disclosing Party. Confidential Information of Alibaba includes the Source Code of the Alipay-Exclusive Software and the Source Code and Object Code of the Alipay-Related Software. Notwithstanding the foregoing, (a) Confidential Information may be disclosed on an as needed basis to personnel or subcontractors (in the case of Purchaser, solely to Permitted Subcontractors) of the Receiving Party and its Subsidiaries solely as and to the extent required for the purpose of fulfilling the Receiving Party's obligations or exercising the Receiving Party's rights under any Transaction Document (including, in the case Alibaba and its Subsidiaries, its rights to contract with other Persons for the procurement by Alibaba or its Subsidiaries of services comparable to the Services (as defined in the 2011 Commercial Agreement)), (b) Confidential Information may be disclosed and used as expressly permitted pursuant to the Data Sharing Agreement with respect to Contributed Data (as defined in the Data Sharing Agreement), and (c) nothing in this Section 9.1 shall be deemed to prevent Purchaser and its Subsidiaries from engaging in the FIG Holdco Business or Alibaba and its Subsidiaries from engaging in the business of Alibaba and its Subsidiaries or otherwise preventing Purchaser or Alibaba and their respective Subsidiaries from exercising their rights in and to the Licensed IP, Alipay-Retained IP or Alipay Non-Core IP. Nonetheless, each Receiving Party (x) shall, except as expressly permitted by the Data Sharing Agreement with respect to Contributed Data (as defined in the Data Sharing Agreement), limit the disclosure of the Disclosing Party's Confidential Information to third Persons to what is necessary for a reasonable purpose in the conduct of the business of the Receiving Party (including its Subsidiaries), and (y) Alibaba and its Subsidiaries shall not disclose any Highly Sensitive Information to any third Persons, except as expressly permitted in the Data Sharing Agreement with respect to Contributed Data (as defined in the Data Sharing Agreement), or with respect to user data to the extent that (i) disclosure of such user data is required for the purpose of engaging a third Person to provide services comparable to the Services (as defined in the 2011 Commercial Agreement) (provided that such third Person shall not use such user data for any other purpose), (ii) disclosure of such user data to such third Person in accordance with this Amended IPLA does not violate applicable Law, and (iii) disclosure of such user data to such third Person in accordance with this Amended IPLA does not violate the terms of use or terms of service under which such data was collected. Each Receiving Party shall take all reasonable steps to ensure that any such Confidential Information disclosed to any personnel or subcontractors in accordance with this Section 9.1 is treated as confidential by the personnel, Subsidiary Sublicensees, Permitted Subcontractors, and Alipay End Users to whom it is disclosed, and shall require the foregoing to enter into an agreement which imposes confidentiality obligations no less protective of the Confidential Information than those imposed under this Amended IPLA.

Section 15.4 Headings. The bold-faced headings contained in this Amended IPLA are for convenience of reference only, will not be deemed to be a part of this Amended IPLA and will not be referred to in connection with the construction or interpretation of this Amended IPLA.

Section 15.5 Counterparts and Exchanges by Electronic Transmission or Facsimile. This Amended IPLA may be executed in several counterparts and such counterparts may be delivered in electronic format (including by email), all of which shall be considered one and the same agreement and shall become effective when one or more counterparts have been signed by each of the Parties and delivered to the other Parties, it being understood that all Parties need not sign the same counterpart.

Section 15.6 Arbitration.

(a) Any dispute, controversy or claim arising out of, relating to, or in connection with this Amended IPLA, including the breach, termination or validity hereof, shall be finally settled exclusively by arbitration. The arbitration shall be administered by, and conducted in accordance with the rules of the International Chamber of Commerce (the "ICC") in effect at the time of the arbitration, except as they may be modified by mutual agreement of the Parties. The seat of the arbitration shall be Singapore, provided, that, the arbitrators may hold hearings in such other locations as the arbitrators determine to be most convenient and efficient for all of the Parties to such arbitration under the circumstances. The arbitration shall be conducted in the English language.

(b) The arbitration shall be conducted by three (3) arbitrators. The Party (or the Parties, acting jointly, if there is more than one (1)) initiating arbitration (the "Claimant") shall appoint an arbitrator in its request for arbitration (the "Request"). The other Party (or the other parties, acting jointly, if there are more than one (1)) to the arbitration (the "Respondent") shall appoint an arbitrator within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Request and shall notify the Claimant of such appointment in writing. If within thirty (30) days of receipt of the Request by the Respondent, either Party has not appointed an arbitrator, then that arbitrator shall be appointed by the ICC. The first two (2) arbitrators appointed in accordance with this provision shall appoint a third arbitrator within thirty (30) days after the Respondent has notified Claimant of the appointment of the Respondent's arbitrator or, in the event of a failure by a Party to appoint, within thirty (30) days after the ICC has notified the Parties and any arbitrator already appointed of the appointment of an arbitrator on behalf of the Party failing to appoint. When the third (3rd) arbitrator has accepted the appointment, the two (2) arbitrators making the appointment shall promptly notify the Parties of the appointment. If the first two (2) arbitrators appointed fail to appoint a third arbitrator or so to notify the Parties within the time period prescribed above, then the ICC shall appoint the third (3rd) arbitrator and shall promptly notify the Parties of the appointment. The third (3rd) arbitrator shall act as chair of the tribunal.


50


(c) The arbitral award shall be in writing, state the reasons for the award, and be final and binding on the Parties. The award may include an award of costs, including reasonable attorneys' fees and disbursements. In addition to monetary damages, the arbitral tribunal shall be empowered to award equitable relief, including an injunction and specific performance of any obligation under this Amended IPLA. The arbitral tribunal is not empowered to award damages in excess of compensatory damages, and each Party hereby irrevocably waives any right to recover punitive, exemplary or similar damages with respect to any dispute, except insofar as a claim is for indemnification for an award of punitive damages awarded against a Party in an action brought against it by an independent third Person. The arbitral tribunal shall be authorized in its discretion to grant pre-award and post-award interest at commercial rates. Any costs, fees or taxes incident to enforcing the award shall, to the maximum extent permitted by Law, be charged against the Party resisting such enforcement. Judgment upon the award may be entered by any court having jurisdiction thereof or having jurisdiction over the relevant Party or its assets.

(d) In order to facilitate the comprehensive resolution of related disputes, and upon request of any Party to the arbitration Proceeding, the arbitration tribunal may, within ninety (90) days of its appointment, consolidate the arbitration Proceeding with any other arbitration Proceeding involving any of the Parties relating to the Transaction Documents. The arbitration tribunal shall not consolidate such arbitrations unless it determines that (i) there are issues of fact or law common to the Proceedings, so that a consolidated Proceeding would be more efficient than separate Proceedings, and (i) no Party would be prejudiced as a result of such consolidation through undue delay or otherwise. In the event of different rulings on this question by the arbitration tribunal constituted hereunder and any tribunal constituted under the Transaction Agreement, the ruling of the tribunal constituted under the Transaction Agreement will govern, and that tribunal will decide all disputes in the consolidated Proceeding.

(e) The Parties agree that the arbitration shall be kept confidential and that the existence of the Proceeding and any element of it (including any pleadings, briefs or other documents submitted or exchanged, any testimony or other oral submissions, and any awards) shall not be disclosed beyond the tribunal, the ICC, the Parties, their counsel and any person necessary to the conduct of the Proceeding, except as may be lawfully required in judicial Proceedings relating to the arbitration or otherwise, or as required by NASDAQ rules or the rules of any other quotation system or exchange on which the disclosing Party's securities are listed or applicable Law.

(f) The costs of arbitration shall be borne by the losing Party unless otherwise determined by the arbitration award.

(g) All payments made pursuant to the arbitration decision or award and any judgment entered thereon shall be made in United States dollars (or, if a payment in United States dollars is not permitted by Law and if mutually agreed upon by the Parties, in Renminbi), free from any deduction, offset or withholding for taxes.


51


(h) Notwithstanding this Section 15.6 or any other provision to the contrary in this Amended IPLA, no Party shall be obligated to follow the foregoing arbitration procedures where such Party intends to apply to any court of competent jurisdiction for an interim injunction or similar equitable relief against any other Party, provided there is no unreasonable delay in the prosecution of that application. None of the Parties shall institute a proceeding in any court or administrative agency to resolve a dispute arising out of, relating to or in connection with this Amended IPLA or the other Transaction Documents, except for a court proceeding to compel arbitration or otherwise enforce this Amended IPLA to arbitrate, to enforce an order or award of the arbitration tribunal or petition for the provisional or emergency remedies provided for herein. The Parties waive objection to venue and consent to the nonexclusive personal jurisdiction of the courts of Singapore in any action to enforce this arbitration agreement, any order or award of the arbitration tribunal or the provisional or emergency remedies provided for herein. In any such permitted court action, the Parties agree that delivery of the complaint or petition by international courier, with proof of delivery, shall constitute valid and sufficient service, and they individually and collectively waive any objection to such service.

Section 15.7 Governing Law. THIS AMENDED IPLA IS MADE UNDER, AND SHALL BE CONSTRUED IN ACCORDANCE WITH, AND, TO THE EXTENT POSSIBLE, ALL OTHER TRANSACTION DOCUMENTS SHALL BE CONSTRUCTED AND ENFORCED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, WITHOUT REGARD TO ANY CONFLICTS OF LAWS PRINCIPLES.

Section 15.8 Assignment. No Party shall transfer this Amended IPLA, or assign any rights or delegate any obligations hereunder, in whole or in part, whether voluntarily or by operation of Law, without the prior written consent of the other Parties. Any purported transfer, assignment or delegation by a Party without the appropriate prior written approval will be null and void and of no force or effect. Subject to the foregoing, this Amended IPLA is binding upon the Parties' successors, heirs and assigns.

Section 15.9 No Assignment of Alipay-Exclusive IP. Alibaba, on behalf of itself and its Subsidiaries, agrees not to assign or transfer any ownership interest in or to any Alipay-Exclusive IP or New FIG Business-Exclusive IP to any third Person (other than to its own Subsidiary), except as explicitly permitted by Section 6.2(c) of this Amended IPLA.

Section 15.10 Remedies Cumulative; Specific Performance. The rights and remedies of the Parties hereto will be cumulative (and not alternative). Each Party agrees that: (a) in the event of any breach or threatened breach by the other Party of any covenant, obligation or other provision set forth in this Amended IPLA, such Party will be entitled (in addition to any other remedy that may be available to it) to seek: (i) a decree or order of specific performance or mandamus to enforce the observance and performance of such covenant, obligation or other provision; and (ii) an injunction restraining such breach or threatened breach; and (b) no Party will be required to provide any bond or other security in connection with any such decree, order or injunction or in connection with any related Proceeding.


52


Section 15.11 Change of Control. Prior to an Income Share Buyout Event resulting in an Issuance Percentage of 100%, without the prior consent of Alibaba, Purchaser shall not enter into, effect or give effect to any Transfer of Equity Securities of the Purchaser or other transaction if to its knowledge after due inquiry, immediately following such transaction, an individual or group (other than Jack Ma (or his successor, in the case of Jack Ma's death or incapacity), other members of management or employees of the Purchaser or its Subsidiaries, and the Management Holdcos (as defined in the Transaction Agreement), and Alibaba, directly or indirectly) would acquire Beneficial Ownership of Equity Securities of the Purchaser representing more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting or economic rights in, or assets of, the Purchaser, it being understood that, without limitation, the applicable proposed Transferor party shall have satisfied his or its obligation of due inquiry if each Transferee party in such Transfer has given an enforceable representation and warranty to each Transferor party to the effect that such individual or group would not, as a result of such Transfer or any other pending or agreed Transfer, acquire Beneficial Ownership of Equity Securities of the Purchaser representing more than fifty percent (50%) of the voting or economic rights in, or assets of, the Purchaser. Prior to an Income Share Buyout Event resulting in an Issuance Percentage of at least 100%, none of Jack Ma (or his successor, in the case of Jack Ma's death or incapacity), the Management Holdcos (as defined in the Transaction Agreement) and Alibaba (directly or indirectly) or Purchaser shall enter into, effect or give effect to any Transfer of Equity Securities of the Purchaser unless immediately following such Transfer, such persons (excluding Purchaser), in the aggregate, retain Beneficial Ownership of Equity Securities (including the power to direct the voting) of the Purchaser constituting a majority voting interest in the Purchaser. Actions taken and agreements made by Purchaser not consistent with this Section 15.11 shall be null and void ab initio.

Section 15.12 Waiver. No failure on the part of either Party to exercise any power, right, privilege or remedy under this Amended IPLA, and no delay on the part of any Party in exercising any power, right, privilege or remedy under this Amended IPLA, will operate as a waiver of such power, right, privilege or remedy; and no single or partial exercise of any such power, right, privilege or remedy will preclude any other or further exercise thereof or of any other power, right, privilege or remedy. No Party will be deemed to have waived any claim arising out of this Amended IPLA, or any power, right, privilege or remedy under this Amended IPLA, unless the waiver of such claim, power, right, privilege or remedy is expressly set forth in a written instrument duly executed and delivered on behalf of such Party; and any such waiver will not be applicable or have any effect except in the specific instance in which it is given.

Section 15.13 Amendments. No amendment, waiver, or discharge hereof (including any exhibit or schedule hereto) shall be valid unless in writing and signed (a) by the Party against which such amendment, waiver or discharge is sought to be enforced, and (b) in the case of Alibaba, with respect to amendments of this Amended IPLA (including any amendments to the Alipay Royalty, the New FIG Royalty and the Software Technology Services Fee) and waivers or discharges of any material right of Alibaba or obligations of Purchaser under this Amended IPLA, including those pertaining to Article V, after obtaining consent of the Seller Audit Committee (or the Alibaba Independent Committee for matters for which the consent of the Alibaba Independent Committee is expressly required by this Amended IPLA).


53


Section 15.14 Severability. Each provision of this Amended IPLA shall be deemed a material and integral part hereof. Except as otherwise provided in this Section 15.14, in the event of a final determination of invalidity, illegality or unenforceability of any provision of this Amended IPLA, the Parties shall negotiate in good faith to amend this Amended IPLA (and any other Transaction Documents, as applicable) or to enter into new agreements to replace such invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision(s) with valid, legal and enforceable provisions providing the Parties with benefits, rights and obligations that are equivalent in all material respects as provided by the Amended IPLA (and any other Transaction Documents, as applicable) as if the invalid, illegal or unenforceable provision(s) had been valid, legal and enforceable. In the event the Parties are not able to reach agreement on such amendments or new agreements, then the arbitrators (pursuant to the procedures set forth in Section 15.6 of this Amended IPLA) shall determine, as part of their arbitral award, such amendments or new agreements such to provide the Parties with benefits, rights and obligations that are equivalent in all material respect as provided by the Amended IPLA as if the stricken provision(s) had been valid, legal and enforceable. No Party shall, or shall permit any of its Related Parties to, directly or indirectly assert that any provision of any Transaction Document is invalid, illegal or unenforceable.

Section 15.15 Entire Agreement. This Amended IPLA and all provisions of any Transaction Documents referred to herein, including all schedules and exhibits hereto and thereto, sets forth the entire understanding of the Parties relating to the subject matter hereof and thereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings among or between any of the Parties relating to the subject matter thereof. To the extent there is any inconsistency between (i) a provision of the Transaction Agreement or another Transaction Document that pertains to the subject matter of this Amended IPLA and (ii) a provision of this Amended IPLA that is more specific or detailed with respect to such subject matter, then the provision of this Amended IPLA shall govern and control. Otherwise, the provision of the Transaction Agreement, or of the other Transaction Document (provided it is not inconsistent with a more specific or detailed provision of the Transaction Agreement), shall govern and control to the extent of such inconsistency.

This Amended IPLA is in the English language only, which language will be controlling in all respects, and all versions hereof in any other language will be for accommodation only and will not be binding upon the Parties hereto.
