If so, you shall be responsible for obtaining all necessary rights and permissions, including intellectual property rights or waivers thereof, and contractual documentation in connection with its use. If possible, you shall assign to us all intellectual property rights in the Third Party Content in accordance with clause 3.1 below, or if not possible, you shall ensure that the intellectual property rights in such Third Party Content are licensed to us on an exclusive, perpetual and royalty-free basis for our full use and exploitation.
