          Assignor shall, without further consideration therefor, pay and remit to Assignee promptly all monies, rights and other considerations received in respect to Assignee's performance of such obligations from and after the Effective Date. If and when any such consent shall be obtained or such Agreements shall otherwise become assignable or able to be novated, Assignor shall promptly assign and novate all of its rights and obligations thereunder to Assignee without payment of further consideration and Assignee shall, without the payment of any further consideration therefor, assume such rights and obligations and Assignor shall be relieved of any and all liability hereunder.

          Assignee warrants that there has been no breach of the above-mentioned Agreements by any of the parties to that Agreement, and that Assignee is in full compliance with all the terms and conditions of such Agreements, and that there has been nor prior assignment or encumbrance of all or any part of Assignee's rights under such Agreements.

          Assignee authorizes and direct all hotels and internet cafés appearing on Schedules C and D, respectively, to deliver any warrants, checks, drafts, or payments to be issued pursuant to such Agreement to Assignee, who is authorized to receive such warrants, checks, drafts, or payments from and after the Effective Date.
