  6.02   Patent Costs.
  (a)   During the term of this AGREEMENT, payment of all PATENT RIGHTS EXPENSES shall be the responsibility of OREXIGEN, whether such fees and costs were incurred before or after the EFFECTIVE DATE of this AGREEMENT. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in this AGREEMENT, except as OREXIGEN declines interest in non-US patent pursuit, OREXIGEN shall be responsible for all PATENT RIGHTS EXPENSES associated with the preparation and filing of the PCT application(s) contained within the PATENT RIGHTS as well as all PATENT RIGHTS EXPENSES associated with pursuit and maintenance of the PATENT RIGHTS. Within thirty (30) days of the EFFECTIVE DATE of this AGREEMENT, OREXIGEN agrees to reimburse DANTE for PATENT RIGHTS EXPENSES (not to exceed forty thousand dollars ($40,000)) which were incurred by DANTE, and for which attorney invoices were received and processed by DANTE, before the EFFECTIVE DATE.
  (b)   If OREXIGEN decides to discontinue the financial support of the prosecution or maintenance of a subject PATENT APPLICATION or patent falling within the scope of PATENT RIGHTS, OREXIGEN will give DANTE timely written notice at least two (2) months in advance of the effective date of OREXIGEN’s decision and DANTE will be free to continue prosecution or maintain any such application(s)/patents, and to maintain any protection issuing thereon in the U.S. and in any foreign country at DANTE’s sole expense. In such instances, from the date of DANTE’s receipt of such written notice from OREXIGEN, such patent and/or DANTE PATENT APPLICATION shall no longer be considered to fall within the definition of PATENT RIGHTS (APPENDIX A shall be deemed to be so amended) and OREXIGEN shall forfeit all rights under this AGREEMENT to the subject issued patent(s) and/or subject DANTE
