      (viii). you will immediately notify us upon becoming aware of any actual or likely infringement of the IP in the Fonts (or any of them) and, where applicable, any breach of the Scope of Licence, and that you shall provide all assistance as reasonably required by us in order to investigate and resolve the matter;

Such files must be in a ‘read only’ format only.
