USB 3_0 Adopters Agreement_020411 1.5 “Compliant Portion” means only those specific portions of products (hardware, software or combinations thereof) that implement and are compliant with all relevant portions of the Final Specification(as applicable to such portions), provided such portions are within the bounds of the Scope. 1.6 “Final Specification” means the USB 3.0 Specification as adopted and published by the Promoters. For purposes of this definition, the Final Specification shall not include any implementation examples unless such implementation examples are expressly identified as being included as part of the limited patent license in the Final Specification as adopted. 1.7 “Necessary Claims” means claims of a patent or patent application that (a) are owned or controlled by a party now or at any future time until termination under Section 4 below; and (b) are necessarily infringed by implementing those portions of the Final Specification within the bounds of the Scope, wherein a claim is necessarily infringed only when it is not possible to avoid infringing it because there is no commercially plausible non-infringing alternative for implementing such portions of the Final Specification within the bounds of the Scope. Notwithstanding the foregoing sentence, Necessary Claims do not include any claims (x) other than those set forth above even if contained in the same patent or patent application as Necessary Claims; (y) that read solely on any implementations of any portion of the Final Specification that are not within the bounds of the Scope; or (z) that, if licensed, would require consent from, and/or a payment of royalties by the licensor to unaffiliated third parties. 1.8 “Promoters” means each company that has signed a USB 3.0 Specification Promoters Agreement and its Affiliates. 1.9 “Scope” means the protocols, electrical signaling characteristics, mechanical requirements for connectors and cabling, and firmware descriptors and device and driver architectures solely to the extent disclosed with particularity in the Final Specification where the sole purpose of such disclosure is to enable products to interoperate, interconnect or communicate as defined within the Final Specification.
