FAIL-PROOF FBA EXCLUSIVE REVOCABLE LICENSING AGREEMENT
This License Agreement (the "Agreement") is made effective as of the date of your joining Fail-Proof FBA (FPFBA) between FP FBA, of 1201 N. Orange Street, Ste. 700-794, Wilmington, Delaware 19801-1186 and yourself (in whatever form so participating, to include any entity under or through which you do business and also you in your individual personal capacity).
It is understood by the parties that FPFBA is an aggregate label, an umbrella under which all relevant parties are subsumed including, but not limited to, Fail-Proof FBA, WallDecalsAndArt, and Try Vinyl.
It is understood by the parties that FPFBA has the right, in its sole discretion, to reject any decal or vinyl product it deems inappropriate based on objectionable content. While you may appeal any such decision to decline, FPFBA is the final arbiter in the matter.
In the Agreement, the party who is granting the right to use the licensed property will be referred to as "Licensor" and/or "FPFBA," and the party who is receiving the right to use the licensed property will be referred to as "Licensee" and/or "you."
The parties agree as follows:
FPFBA is an accomplished, well-reputed established Amazon Seller specializing in engineering a proprietary, innovative, and exclusive opportunity for those looking to exploit the power of Amazon without the typical pitfalls that plague standard FBA and FBM models. You are an independent business person or entity desiring to leverage the talents, skills, and expertise of FPFBA in the Amazon retail arena so as to effectuate a more robust and effective business presence in connection with your desire to retail on the Amazon platform. You have identified the FPFBA opportunity as a unique and distinctly advantaged means to meet your purposes, and the FPFBA "Sell Before You Buy" model is the subject of this Agreement.
You agree that all products manufactured on your behalf are promised by FPFBA to be fulfilled on your behalf via an exclusive license to protect you against competition, and FPFBA agrees to permit such exclusive licensed use of this unlimited number of products with the understanding that the exclusive license is revocable only upon your own decision to terminate the marketing thereof or, in the alternative, the wilful disregard for our business relationship and attempt to compete against us with the very products we've granted you exclusive rights to. Accordingly, in consideration of these promises, the parties agree:
1. Grant of License.
FPFBA owns the sum total of all intellectual and other property rights and interests in all products you submit and have approved (the "Approved Work"). In accordance with this Agreement, FPFBA grants you an exclusive license to sell the Approved Work. FPFBA retains title and ownership of the Approved Work and derivative works will be assigned to Licensor by Licensee to use in any demonstrable manner short of competitive selling, except upon the revocation of the license.
2. Payment of Royalty.
You will pay to FPFBA a royalty as calculated pursuant to the formula provided for the Approved Work. The royalty shall be paid every two weeks as Amazon payments are made on or before the fifth day following the payment made by Amazon. With each royalty payment, you will submit to FPFBA a written report that sets forth the calculation of the amount of the royalty payment, and tendered to FPFBA via the Help Desk as instructed.
You shall keep accurate records regarding the quantities of the Approved Work that are sold. FPFBA shall have the right to inspect such records from time to time after providing reasonable notice of such intent to you. However, the primary method of accounting is simply through the submission of sales reports via our Support Desk as outlined in the Course materials.
4. Modifications of the Approved, Licensed Work.
Unless the prior written approval of FPFBA is obtained, you may not modify or change the Approved Work in any manner. All final products are verified & apporoved by FPFBA to ensure the integrity of your opportunity and so as to not infringe on others.
5. Non-Exclusive License To Licensor.
As of the effective date, you grants back to FPFBA a non-exclusive royalty-free license to use the Approved Work as FPFBA sees fit, including for the creation of derivative works; provided, however, this license shall not limit you's rights and public rights under this License.
For all notices required or permitted by this Agreement, the parties shall provide them in writing by fax, personal delivery, registered mail, certified mail, overnight courier or email to the following:

Any claim or right waived or renounced under this Agreement must be in writing, signed by the parties and supported by separate, distinct consideration.
