7.2 Unless otherwise set out in the Project Proposal, upon payment in full of all Charges and other sums due under the Contract, all Intellectual Property Rights in the Deliverable(s) shall become the property of the Client, and Pb shall (insofar as it is able to do so) assign absolutely with full title guarantee all such Intellectual Property Rights to the Client.

13.6 Waiver. A waiver of any right or remedy under the Contract or by law is only effective if given in writing and shall not be deemed a waiver of any subsequent right or remedy.
