You may use the SDK which consists of the Application Program Interface (API) manual, header files, and sample code, to create, modify, copy and distribute end-user software ("Application Programs") for the sole purpose of the Kyocera Smartphone. The SDK is licensed for use only on the Windows 95/98/2000/NT or Mac OS platforms. Developer may use, modify and distribute, in object code form, the sample source code included with the SDK. Such use must be in conjunction with and as part of the Application Programs and the Application Programs must add significant value to the sample code.
1.2 Marketing Obligations. Developer may employ commercially reasonable efforts to market its Application Programs. Developer shall provide Kyocera with, and obtain approval in writing for, all content of any press releases mentioning Kyocera in advance of such release. Developer shall be solely responsible for creating, managing, editing, reviewing and otherwise controlling the content of all advertisements and promotional materials which relate to the SDK and any Application Programs. Developer agrees and acknowledges that Kyocera shall have the right to disapprove promotional materials that, in Kyocera's business judgment, do not represent suitable quality advertisements, or that reflect unfavorably on Kyocera. Developer shall not utilize any promotional materials, that make use of any Kyocera names or trademarks, not expressly approved by Kyocera in writing. Upon request by Kyocera, in writing, Developer shall immediately remove from Developer's service any advertisements/promotions mentioning Kyocera that Kyocera finds unsuitable.
1.3 New Releases. If Kyocera makes a new release (other than an "Update" release which is designated by Kyocera as a change in the hundredths digit [x.x (x)]) of any component of the SDK available, then: i) Developer shall use reasonable efforts to cease reproduction and distribution of the older version of the SDK component and, ii) shall promptly commence reproduction and distribution of the new release of the SDK component with Developer's Application Programs, provided Developer may deplete its existing inventory of Developer's Application Program containing a prior version of the SDK.
