WHEREAS, the FCC has mandated that XM and Sirius deploy a final receiver design that is interoperable;

WHEREAS, XM and Sirius are, and will continue to be, competitors in, among other things, the marketing and sale of the satellite broadcasting of radio programming to listeners, the acquisition of rights to broadcast such programming and sale of radio advertising availabilities and other forms of advertising or promotional opportunities in connection with that programming (collectively, "Business Opportunities");

"Interoperable Radio" shall mean a radio that, at a minimum, (a) receives and processes the audio portion of both the Sirius Radio System signal and the XM Radio System signal, either as a result of an Interoperable Chipset contained in the unit itself or as a result of an Interoperable Chipset contained in an outboard location which interfaces directly with the unit, and (b) which is capable of providing the user interface for both Sirius Radio System broadcasts and XM Radio System broadcasts, including displaying the artist and title information transmitted as part of such broadcasts, in each case, without the consumer purchasing additional hardware or software.

"Interoperability Technology" shall mean the technology, including the technology which is jointly funded and developed by Sirius and XM pursuant to this Agreement or owned and/or licensed by either party, which is required to design, develop and/or manufacture an Interoperable Radio, as well as any enhancements and modifications jointly funded and developed for such technology pursuant to this Agreement (including the industry standards jointly developed by the parties pursuant to Section 3.03), but shall not include Non-core Technology.
