continue using the Licensed Programs, replace or modify the Licensed Programs to make them
not infringing, or provide Licensee with a refund of the license fee less depreciation on a 5 (five)
year, straight-line basis. NEAR shall have no liability for any claim of patent, copyright or trade
secret infringement based on the use of a Licensed Program in any form other than the original,
