9.    General. Any claim, dispute or controversy relating to this Agreement will be governed by the laws of the State of California without giving effect to any choice of law principles.

This Agreement contains the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding of the parties and merges all prior discussions, both oral and written, between the parties related to the subject matter hereof. The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision shall not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor shall the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision hereof be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. In the event that any provision of this Agreement shall be unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law or be so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity shall not render this Agreement unenforceable or invalid as a whole, and, in such event, such provision shall be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Agreement, this Agreement may only be changed by mutual written agreement of authorized representatives of the parties.
