    (b) The Objection Notice shall specify (with particularity and in detail) the purported defects in Delivery of the Film, and all items that must be corrected, delivered or otherwise modified in order to complete same; provided that if within three (3) business days after receiving the Objection Notice, Producer or Guarantor request additional information which they believe in good faith is necessary in order to determine whether Delivery has been effected notwithstanding such Objection Notice, or how any defect in Delivery can be cured, then Distributor shall have three (3) business days after its receipt of such request to respond in good faith thereto (the "Response"). Following the receipt of the Objection Notice or Response, whichever is applicable, Guarantor shall have the following alternatives:

      (i) Effect Delivery in accordance with the specifications of the Objection Notice and (if applicable) the Response, but in no event later than thirty (30) business days after receiving the Objection Notice or Response, whichever is later to occur, and give such party notice thereof ("Cure Notice"); or,

      (ii) Give Distributor written notice ("Arbitration Notice") within five (5) business days after receiving the Objection Notice or Response, whichever is later to occur, that Delivery has been effected notwithstanding the Objection Notice and that Guarantor has elected to submit the issue of whether Delivery has been effected for expedited arbitration in accordance with paragraph 3(a) hereof; provided that if there are any items referred to in the Objection Notice which the Guarantor elects to correct, deliver or modify to enable Guarantor to serve a Cure Notice, the time allowed for serving an Arbitration Notice in respect of any items which the Guarantor does not so intend to correct deliver or modify shall be extended so that it is co-terminous with the period allowed for the service of the Cure Notice.

2. Distributor, Producer and Guarantor hereby agree that in the event any dispute arises between any of the parties hereto as to whether or not Delivery has been effected such dispute will be submitted to binding arbitration as hereinafter provided.

3. If a Cure Notice is given as aforesaid, then Distributor shall have five (5) business days from and after its receipt of same within which to verify that Delivery has been effected in accordance with the specifications of the Objection Notice and (if applicable) the Response and to notify Guarantor, Financier, Distributor and Producer that either:

      (i) Delivery has been effected as aforesaid (and such notice shall constitute an Acceptance Notice for all purposes hereunder); or,

      (ii) Delivery has not been effected and Distributor has elected to submit the issue of whether Delivery has been effected (and such issue only) for expedited arbitration in accordance with paragraph 3(a) below ("Arbitration Notice").

    (a) In the event Distributor or Guarantor elects to submit the issue of whether Delivery has been effected to arbitration pursuant to this agreement, the following shall apply:

      (i) the arbitration shall be submitted to three (3) arbitrators who shall be selected as follows:

        (A) Upon receipt of notice ("Arbitration Notice") from Guarantor or Distributor ("First Party") that it has elected to submit such dispute to arbitration, the party ("Second Party") receiving notice and the party serving notice shall each appoint one arbitrator with knowledge and experience in the United States motion picture industry and the technical delivery issues relating to motion pictures, and said arbitrators so selected shall then appoint a third arbitrator and shall give written notice thereof to both parties within two (2) days of such appointment; provided, however, that if either Distributor or Guarantor shall fail to appoint its respective arbitrator within five (5) business days after receipt of the Arbitration Notice, then the arbitrator appointed by the other party shall have full authority to act as the sole arbitrator of such arbitration; the two party-appointed arbitrators shall appoint the third arbitrator within ten (10) days of the appointment of the later of the two (2) to be appointed, failing which, at the request of either party, the then President of the American Arbitration Association, or his/her replacement in the event the President is unavailable, shall be requested to appoint the third arbitrator within ten (10) days of the application.

      (ii) The arbitration shall commence at a location in Los Angeles, within twenty (20) business days after the selection of the three (3) arbitrators ("Arbitrators"), and such arbitration shall continue on each consecutive business day therefrom until fully concluded, unless continued by the Arbitrators for good cause shown. Except as expressly provided for herein, such arbitration shall be conducted in accordance with the commercial rules and procedures of the American Arbitration Association then in effect;

      (iii) There shall be made available to the Arbitrators all relevant documents and the delivery materials. The parties shall participate in an exchange of information before the hearing. The parties acknowledge and agree that each party shall be entitled to reasonable discovery for the purposes of any such arbitration, including (without limitation) document production and the taking of depositions. The party desiring such discovery may apply to the Arbitrators at the outset of the arbitration for particular discovery requests. The parties will make themselves and all documents as may be required available so as to enable full and complete discovery in a timely fashion. The Arbitrators may deny only such discovery as is unreasonable or is intended unduly to delay the prompt conclusion of the arbitration;

      (iv) The Arbitrators must determine whether Delivery has been effected or has not been effected, and shall promptly notify the parties in writing of the finding made.

      (v) The Arbitrators' award shall provide for payment by the losing party or parties of the Arbitrators' and any court reporter's fees, as well as the reasonable attorneys' fees incurred by the prevailing party in the arbitration.
