(2) Registry Proposed Adjustments. The Registry may propose adjustments to the then-current agreed upon Pricing Strategy. If Google and the Registry cannot agree to a change to the Pricing Strategy after negotiating for a period of sixty (60) days after the Registry’s notice of its proposal for adjustments, then the dispute shall be resolved pursuant to Article IX (Dispute Resolution) consistent with the objectives set forth in Section 4.1(a)(i) (Objectives). Such sixty (60)-day period may be changed by mutual written agreement of Google and the Registry. In the event of such a dispute, the then-current price will continue to apply unless and until the earlier of (a) Google and the Registry agreeing to changes to the Pricing Strategy or (b) the Arbitrator rendering a Decision. If the renegotiation of the Pricing Strategy concludes, or if the Arbitrator renders a Decision, prior to the Price Change Cut Off Date, then any increase in the price resulting from the renegotiation or Decision will take effect for the academic year first starting after the Price Change Cut Off Date. If the renegotiation of the Pricing Strategy concludes, or if the Arbitrator renders a Decision, on or after the Price Change Cut Off Date, then any price increase will take effect not for the academic year first starting after the Price Change Cut Off Date, but in the next following academic year. In addition, any price increase will not apply to any then-existing subscriber contracts until they are renewed or extended. “Price Change Cut Off Date” means a date that is prior to the commencement of the academic year first starting after such date and that is set to provide Google with a reasonable period of time within which to sell the Institutional Subscription for that academic year without an intervening price increase for Institutional Subscriptions, which period of time reasonably approximates the typical sales cycle for comparable products and services.
