Suspension. If any portion of, or functionality implemented by, the Reference Code, Technology or Technology Specifications becomes the subject of a claim or threatened claim of infringement (“Affected Materials”), Original Contributor may, in its unrestricted discretion, suspend Your rights to use and distribute the Affected Materials under this License. Such suspension of rights will be effective immediately upon Original Contributor’s posting of notice of suspension on the Technology Site.

All Your rights will terminate under this License if You fail to comply with any of the material terms or conditions of this License and do not cure such failure in a reasonable period of time after becoming aware of such noncompliance. If You institute patent litigation against a Licensee with respect to a patent applicable to Licensee Code, then any patent licenses granted by such Licensee to You under this License shall terminate as of the date such litigation is filed. In addition, if You institute patent litigation against any Licensee or Original Contributor alleging that Reference Code, Technology or Technology Specifications infringe Your patent(s), then the rights granted to You under Section III.A above will terminate. Upon termination, You must discontinue all uses and distribution of Licensee Code, except that You may continue to use, reproduce, prepare derivative works of Your Modifications (without the benefit of any license arising from this License) for purposes other than to implement functionality designated in any portion of the Technology Specifications.
