(i) Pricing Bins. For Books that will be sold at the Settlement Controlled Price, Google and the Registry will agree upon use a set of pre-defined prices for Books (“Pricing Bins”), and each Book will be priced at one of those prices. The initial Pricing Bins for Books will be: $1.99, $2.99, $3.99, $4.99, $5.99, $6.99, $7.99, $8.99, $9.99, $14.99, $19.99 and $29.99. Google and the Registry may agree to establish additional or different Pricing Bins between, below and above these prices at any time; provided, however that (a) the Unclaimed Works Fiduciary has the right to approve the use of such additional or different Pricing Bins for unclaimed Books and (b) the use of such additional or different Pricing Bins for a Registered Rightsholder’s Books is subject to thirty (30) days’ prior notice to such Rightsholder. At any time, the Rightsholder of a Book may specify a maximum and/or a minimum Pricing Bin for its Book and Google will implement such specification within seven (7) days after Google receives notice thereof. In any event, either Google or the Registry has the option to require renegotiation of the number of Pricing Bins or the prices of the Pricing Bins at the end of the three (3)-year period commencing with the Effective Date, and every four (4) years thereafter. Google or the Registry shall give the other party notice at least ninety (90) days prior to the end of the then-current three (3)-or four (4)-year period, as applicable, of its exercise of its option to renegotiate. Such ninety (90)-day period may be extended by mutual written agreement of Google and the Registry. In the event that Google and the Registry cannot agree on changes to the number of Pricing Bins or the prices for each Pricing Bin, as applicable, then the dispute shall be resolved pursuant to Article IX (Dispute Resolution). In the event of such a dispute, the then-current number of Pricing Bins and the prices for each Pricing Bin will continue to apply unless and until the earlier of (1) Google and the Registry agreeing to such changes or (2) the Arbitrator rendering a Decision.
