When deliveries are spread over a period, each delivery shall be invoiced when dispatched and each invoice shall be treated as a separate account and payable accordingly.

SAP shall defend and indemnify Buyer against patent infringing damages finally awarded in any legal action brought by a third party against Buyer directly arising from a Product directly infringing against any Singapore patent and/or intellectual property rights.

Procure for Buyer the right to continue using said Product,
replace the same with a non-infringing Product,
modify the Product so it becomes non-infringing, or
remove the Product and refund its purchase price.
The foregoing sets forth the entire liability of SAP for patent and/or intellectual property right infringement by a Product. If any suit or proceeding is brought against SAP based on claims that the Product supplied by SAP in compliance with Buyer's specifications directly infringe any fully issued Singapore patent and/or intellectual property right, then the patent indemnity obligations herein stated with respect to SAP shall reciprocally apply with respect to Buyer.
