(a) Discount. For a period of twenty-five (25) years from the date the full Institutional Subscription (whether such product is offered alone or in combination with other Google products) is first offered to Higher Education Institutions, Google shall provide a version of the Institutional Subscription product that is limited to all of the Books and Inserts contained in the Institutional Subscription Database to U of M without charge, provided: (i) U of M has made and is continuing to make all works in the Available Content accessible (or would have made such works available for Digitization but did not do so due to their condition, size, binding tightness, or other physical characteristics) to Google at a reasonable rate (the “reasonableness” of the rate will take into account the number of works remaining in the Available Content that Google desires to Digitize, Google’s then-current ability to process such works and any operational issues or issues beyond the reasonable control of U of M that may result in variations in the rate or delays) unless Google is not then acting in good faith in the performance of any material obligation under this Agreement (provided, however, that such condition in clause (i) shall continue in the event Google begins to act in good faith in the performance of such obligation again); (ii) U of M is not then in an uncured material breach of this Agreement unless Google is not then acting in good faith in the performance of any material obligation under this Agreement (provided, however, that such condition in clause (ii) shall continue in the event Google begins to act in good faith in the performance of such obligation again); and (iii) U of M’s FTEs are less than 60,000. Following such twenty-five (25)-year period, or earlier if any condition in (i), (ii), or (iii) is not met, Google shall provide to U of M a yearly subsidy credited against the annual subscription price of a version of the Institutional Subscription product that is limited to all of the Books and Inserts contained in the Institutional Subscription Database (or, if such Institutional Subscription product is offered in combination with other Google products, the portion of the total annual subscription price attributable to the Institutional Subscription product that is limited to all of the Books and Inserts contained in the Institutional Subscription Database) up to the full annual subscription price of such version of the Institutional Subscription equal to the price of one FTE for every fifty (50) Library Works that (A) were Digitized by Google from the Available Content or provided by U of M to Google in Digitized form under this Agreement and (B) are included in the Institutional Subscription Database. In the event Google prices the annual subscription to such version of the Institutional Subscription other than on an FTE-basis, Google shall provide an equivalent subsidy to U of M credited against such annual subscription price. The percentage discount computed pursuant to this paragraph (a) is referred to herein as the “Applicable Discount;” for clarification, the Applicable Discount would be 100% during any period that the first sentence of this paragraph (a) applies and results in no charge to U of M. The subsidy for any Institutional Subscription term shall be calculated once per year on the date of commencement of the Institutional Subscription term and on each yearly anniversary thereof. If Google is offering a version of the full Institutional Subscription product that does not contain advertising to Higher Education Institutions, it shall make such version available to U of M pursuant to this paragraph.
