            the commencement of my employment. I further agree that all

     b)     THIRD-PARTY INFORMATION. I recognize that the Company has received
            and in the future will receive from third parties their confidential
            or proprietary information subject to a duty on the Company's part
            to maintain the confidentiality of such information and to use it
            only for certain limited purposes. I agree to hold all such
            confidential or proprietary information in the strictest confidence
            and not to disclose it to any person, firm or corporation or to use
            it except as necessary in carrying out my work for the Company
            consistent with the Company's agreement with such third party.

2.   WORK PRODUCT.

     a)     ASSIGNMENT OF WORK PRODUCT. I agree that I will promptly make full
            written disclosure to the Company and will hold in trust for the
            sole right and benefit of the Company, and I hereby assign to the
            Company, or its designee, all my right, title and interest in and to
            any and all inventions, original works of authorship, developments,
            concepts,

            improvements or trade secrets, of whatever nature and whether or not
            patentable or registrable under copyright or similar laws, which I
            may solely or jointly with others conceive or develop or reduce to
            practice, or cause to be conceived or developed or reduced to
            practice, during the period of time I am in the employ of the
            Company (collectively referred to as "Work Product"); and I further
            agree that the foregoing shall also apply to Work Product which

            made by me (solely or jointly with others) within the scope of my
            employment and which are protectable by copyright are "works made
            for hire", as that term is defined in the United States Copyright
            Act.

     b)     MAINTENANCE OF RECORDS. I agree to keep and maintain adequate and
            current written records of all Work Product made by me (solely or

            records will be available to and remain the sole property of the
            Company at all times.

     c)     PATENT AND COPYRIGHT REGISTRATIONS. I agree to assist the Company,
            or its designee, at the Company's expense, in every proper way to
            secure the Company's rights in the Work Product and any copyrights,
            patents, mask work rights or other intellectual property rights
            relating thereto in any and all countries, including the disclosure
            to the Company of all pertinent information and data with respect
            thereto and the execution of all applications, specifications,
            oaths, assignments and all other instruments which the Company shall
            deem necessary in order to apply for and obtain such rights and in
            order to assign and convey to the Company, its successors, assigns
            and nominees to sole and exclusive rights, title and interest in and
            to such Work Product, and any copyright, patents, mask work rights
            or other intellectual property rights relating thereto. This
            provision shall survive the termination of my employment by the
            Company, whether with or without cause.

3.   RETURNING COMPANY PROPERTY. I agree that, at any time upon request of the
     Company, and in any event at the time of the termination of my employment

                  employment by the Company or about which I acquire
                  Confidential Information, and (B) which is (or could
                  reasonably be anticipated to be) marketed or distributed in
                  such a manner and in such a geographic area as to actually
                  compete with such product, process or services of the Company.

            ii)   "Competing Organization" means any person or organization,
                  including myself, engaged in, or about to become engaged in,
                  research on or the acquisition, development, production,
                  distribution, marketing, or providing of a Competing Product.

     b)     As a material inducement to the Company to employ me, and in order
            to protect the Company's Confidential Information and good will, I
            agree to the following stipulations:

            i)    For a period of twelve (12) months after termination of my
                  employment by the Company, whether with or without cause, I
                  will not directly or indirectly solicit or divert or accept
                  business relating in any manner to Competing Products or to
                  products, processes or services of the Company from any of the
                  customers or accounts of the Company with which I had any
                  contact as a result of my employment.

                  directly or indirectly, as an employee, consultant or
                  otherwise, to any Competing Organization in connection with

                  production of any Competing Product.

            iii)  For a period of twelve (12) months after termination of my
                  employment by the Company, whether with or without cause, I
                  will not directly or indirectly solicit or take away, or
                  attempt to solicit or take away, employees of the Company,
                  either for my own business or for any other person or entity.

6.   ENFORCEABILITY AND SEVERABILITY. In the event that any provision of this
     Agreement shall be determined to be unenforceable by any court of competent
     jurisdiction by reason of its extending for too great a period of time or
     over too large a geographic area or over too great a range of activities,
     it shall be interpreted to extend only over the maximum period of time,
     geographic area or range of activities as to which it may be enforceable.

     If any provision of this Agreement shall be determined to be invalid,
     illegal or otherwise unenforceable by any court of competent jurisdiction,
     the validity, legality and enforceability of the other provisions of this
     Agreement shall not be affected thereby. Any invalid, illegal or
     unenforceable provision of this Agreement shall be severable, and after any
     such severance, all other provisions hereof shall remain in full force and
     effect.

7.   BREACH.

     a)     EQUITABLE REMEDIES. I hereby expressly acknowledge that any breach
            or threatened breach of any of the terms and/or conditions set forth
            in this Agreement will result in substantial, continuing and
            irreparable injury to the Company. Therefore, I hereby agree that,
            in addition to any other remedy that may be available to the
            Company, the Company shall be entitled to injunctive or other
            equitable relief by a court of appropriate jurisdiction in the event
            of breach or threatened breach of the terms of this Agreement.

     b)     TOLLING. If any provisions of this Agreement are violated, then the
            time limitations set forth in this Agreement shall be extended for a
            period of time equal to the period of time during which such breach
            occurs, and, in the event the Company is required to seek relief
            from such breach before any court, board or other tribunal, then the
            time limitation shall be extended for a period of time equal to the
            pendency of such proceedings, including all appeals.
