7.2.2    As between Licensor and Licensee, but subject to any obligations of Licensor to the REGENXBIO Licensors, Licensor shall have the sole right, but not the obligation, to prosecute any such infringement **** and shall execute all documents necessary to initiate litigation to prosecute, maintain, and settle such action.  Nothing in this Agreement obligates Licensor to bring or prosecute lawsuits against Third Parties for infringement of any Licensed Patents.

7.2.3    Licensee shall have no right to undertake prosecution of any such infringement. 

7.3       Defense of Infringement Claims.  In the event Licensee or Licensor becomes aware that Licensee’s or any of its Affiliates’ or any Sublicensees’ practice of the Licensed Patents is the subject of a claim for patent infringement by a Third Party, that Party shall promptly notify the other, and the Parties shall consider the claim and the most appropriate action to take.  Licensee shall cause each of its Affiliates and each Sublicensee to notify Licensee promptly in the event such entity becomes aware that its practice of the Licensed Patents is the subject of a claim of patent infringement by another.  To the extent Licensor takes any action, Licensor (or the REGENXBIO Licensors) shall have the right to require Licensee’s reasonable cooperation in any such suit, upon written notice to Licensee; and Licensee shall have the obligation to participate upon Licensor’s request, in which event, Licensor shall bear the cost of Licensee’s participation.  Without Licensor’s prior written permission, which shall not be unreasonably denied, Licensee must not settle or compromise any such suit in a manner that imposes any material obligations or restrictions on Licensor or either of the REGENXBIO Licensors or grants any rights to the Licensed Patents other than rights that Licensee has the right to grant under this Agreement.
