9.1.    Provision Free from Defects. The Licensor shall provide the Software free of Quality Defects at the time the risk passes and in a form so that it does not infringe any rights of third parties.

Licensor remains, however, entitled to sue at the registered office of the Licensee.
12.3.    Severability. In case individual provisions of this Agreement are or become ineffective, this shall not affect the effectiveness of the remaining provisions. Instead of such ineffective provision a provision which would fairly have been agreed between the Parties for the originally desired economic purpose of this contract shall apply. The same applies for any contractual gaps.
