This Agreement is personal to Licensee and may not be assigned or transferred for any reason whatsoever (including, without limitation, by operation of law, merger, reorganization, or as a result of an acquisition or change of control involving Licensee) without Viggle’s prior written consent and any action or conduct in violation of the foregoing shall be void and without effect. Viggle expressly reserves the right to assign this Agreement and to delegate any of its obligations hereunder.
