1. Notwithstanding Article 36, no member considers it illegal to perform any of the acts covered in this article concerning an integrated circuit containing an illegally reproduced layout design or an object containing such an integrated circuit when the person performing or ordering such acts, when acquiring the integrated circuit or an item containing such an integrated circuit , had no reasonable reason to know that it installed a layout design reproduced illegitimately. Members anticipate that after that person has been sufficiently informed that the design of the layout has been reproduced illegally, that person may perform one of the acts relating to the stock used or ordered before that date, but must pay the right holder an amount corresponding to an appropriate licence, as it should be paid under a freely negotiated license for such a layout design. Subject to paragraph 1 of Article 37, members consider that the following acts are considered illegal if they are carried out without the permission of the right holder: 9) the importation, sale or distribution of a protected layout design, an integrated circuit in which a protected layout design is incorporated or an article containing such an integrated circuit , only to the extent that it continues to contain an illegitimately reproduced layout design. The available term of protection does not end until the expiry of a 20-year period from the date of filing (8) 2. Patent holders also have the right to transfer or transfer the patent to the right and to enter into licensing agreements. (i) the invention claimed in the second patent must result in significant technical progress of considerable economic importance in relation to the invention claimed in the first patent; 2. Members may require an applicant to provide information on the applicant`s corresponding foreign applications and grants. (a) if the product obtained in the patented process is new; (c) the extent and duration of such use are limited to the purpose for which it was approved and, in the case of the semiconductor technique, only for non-commercial public use or to remedy a practice deemed anti-competitive as a result of judicial or administrative proceedings; (g) The authorisation of such use may be rescinded subject to adequate protection of the legitimate interests of the persons thus authorized if and if the circumstances that led to such use no longer exist and may not recur;
