The following documents and information previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission by InfoSpace.com, Inc.

All documents subsequently filed by the Company pursuant to Sections 13(a), 13(c), 14 and 15(d) of the Exchange Act, prior to the filing of a post-effective amendment which indicates that all securities registered have been sold or which deregisters all securities then remaining unsold, shall be deemed to be incorporated by reference in this Registration Statement and to be part hereof from the date of filing of such documents. Item 4. Description of Securities. Not Applicable. Item 5. Interests of Named Experts and Counsel. Not Applicable. Item 6. Indemnification of Directors and Officers. Section 145 of the Delaware General Corporation Law authorizes a court to award, or a corporation's Board of Directors to grant, indemnity to directors and officers in terms sufficiently broad to permit such indemnification under certain circumstances for liabilities (including II-1

reimbursement for expenses incurred) arising under the Securities Act. Further, in accordance with the Delaware General Corporation Law, the Company's Restated Certificate of Incorporation eliminates the liability of a director of the Company to the Company and its stockholders for monetary damages for breaches of such director's fiduciary duty of care in certain instances. The Restated Bylaws (the "Restated Bylaws") of the Company provides for indemnification of certain agents to the maximum extent permitted by the Delaware General Corporation Law. Persons covered by this indemnification include any current or former directors and officers of the Company, as well as persons who serve at the request of the Company as directors, officers, employees or agents of another enterprise. In addition, the Company has entered into contractual agreements with each director and certain officers of the Company designated by the Board to indemnify such individuals to the full extent permitted by law. These agreements also resolve certain procedural and substantive matters that are not covered, or are covered in less detail, in the Restated Bylaws or by the Delaware General Corporation Law. Item 7. Exemption From Registration Claimed. Not Applicable. Item 8. Exhibits. EXHIBIT NUMBER DESCRIPTION - -------- ------------------------------------------------------------------ 4.1 INEX Corporation Share Option Plan. 5.1 Opinion of counsel as to legality of securities being registered. 23.1 Consent of Independent Accountants. 23.2 Consent of Counsel (contained in Exhibit 5.1). 24.1 Power of Attorney (contained on signature page hereto). Item 9. Undertakings. (a) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes: (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement to include any material information with respect to the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement. (2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be a new Registration Statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. (3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective amendment any of the securities being registered, which remain unsold at the termination of the offering. II-2

(b) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of determining any liability under the Securities Act, each filing of the registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the Exchange Act (and, where applicable, each filing of an employee benefit plan's annual report pursuant to section 15(d) of the Exchange Act) that is incorporated by reference in the Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof. (c) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the Securities Act may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling persons of the registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise, the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or controlling person of the registrant in the successful defense of any action, suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.

Participants in the Plan shall be directors, senior ------------ officers, employees and Key Contributors of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates (including officers thereof, whether or not directors) who, by the nature of their positions or jobs are, in the opinion of the Board of Directors, upon the recommendation of the President of the Corporation, in a position to contribute to the success of the Corporation. At the request of any Participant, options granted to such Participant may be issued to and registered in the name of a personal holding company wholly-owned by such Participant ("Holding Company") or to a registered retirement savings plan established by such Participant ("RRSP") and, in such event, the provisions of this Plan shall apply to such options mutatis mutandis as though they were issued to and registered in the name of the Participant. Section 2.03 Amount of Options. The determination regarding the aggregate ----------------- number of Common Shares subject to options in favour of any Participant will take into consideration the Participant's present and potential contribution to the success of the Corporation and shall be determined from time to time by the Board of Directors. The aggregate number of Common Shares reserved for issuance upon the exercise of options pursuant to this Plan and any other Share Compensation Arrangements, subject to adjustment or increase of such number pursuant to Section 2.10 hereof, shall be 775,000 Common Shares. The maximum number of Common Shares reserved for issuance to any one Participant upon the exercise of options shall not exceed 10% of the total number of Common Shares outstanding on a non-diluted basis, immediately prior to such issuance. Section 2.04 Limits with respect to Insiders. ------------------------------- (a) The number of Common Shares issuable to Insiders pursuant to options granted under the Plan, together with Common Shares issuable to Insiders under any other Share Compensation Arrangement of the Corporation, shall not: (i) exceed 25% of the number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to the grant of any such option; or (ii) result in the issuance to Insiders, within a one year period, of in excess of 25% of the number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to the grant of any such option. (b) The number of Common Shares issuable to any Insider and such Insider's Associates pursuant to options granted under the Plan, together with Common Shares issuable to such Insider or such Insider's Associates under any other Share Compensation Arrangement of the Corporation shall not, within a one year period, exceed 10% of the number of Common Shares outstanding immediately prior to the grant of any such option. -2-

(c) Any Common Shares issuable pursuant to an option granted to a Participant prior to the Participant becoming an Insider shall be excluded for the purposes of the limits set out in Subsections 2.04(a) and 2.04(b) hereof. Section 2.05 Price. The exercise price per Common Share shall be determined by ----- the Board of Directors at the time the option is granted. In the event that the Common Shares are not listed and posted for trading on any stock exchange or other quotation systems, the exercise price shall be as determined by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion. In the event that the Common Shares are listed and posted for trading on the TSE, the exercise price per Common Share shall not be less than the closing price of the Common Shares on the TSE on the last trading day preceding the date on which the grant of the option is approved by the Board of Directors (or if the Common Shares are not then listed and posted for trading on the TSE, on such exchange or quotation system on which the Common Shares are listed and posted for trading as may be selected by the Board of Directors). In the event that the Common Shares did not trade on such last trading day, the exercise price shall be the average of the bid and the ask prices in respect of the Common Shares for the previous five trading days. Section 2.06 Lapsed Options. In the event that options granted under the Share -------------- Option Plan are surrendered, terminate or expire without being exercised in whole or in part, the Common Shares reserved for issuance but not purchased under such lapsed options shall be available for subsequent options to be granted under the Plan. Section 2.07 Consideration, Option Period, Vesting Period and Payment. -------------------------------------------------------- (a) The period during which options may be exercised shall be determined by the Board of Directors, in its discretion, to a maximum of ten years from the date the option is granted (the "Option Period"), except as the same may be reduced with respect to any option as provided in Sections 2.08 and 2.09 hereof respecting termination of employment or death of the Participant. (b) The vesting period of the options shall be determined and/or amended by the Board of Directors in its discretion. Each option must vest within its Option Period and an option may not be exercised until it has vested. (c) Subject to any other provision of this Plan, an option may be exercised from time to time during the Option Period by delivery to the Corporation at its registered office of a written notice of exercise addressed to the Secretary of the Corporation specifying the number of Common Shares with respect to which the option is being exercised and accompanied by payment in full of the exercise price therefor. Certificates for such Common Shares shall be issued and delivered to the Participant as soon as practicable following receipt of such notice and payment. (d) Except as set forth in Sections 2.08 and 2.09 hereof, no option may be exercised unless the Participant is, at the time of such exercise, a director, senior officer or Key Contributor of or in the employ of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates and shall have been continuously a director or senior officer or Key Contributor or so employed since the grant of his or her option. Absence on leave with the approval of the Corporation or a Designated Affiliate shall not be considered an interruption of employment for purposes of the Plan. (e) The exercise of any option will be contingent upon receipt by the Corporation of cash payment of the full exercise price of the Common Shares which are the subject of the exercised option. No Participant or his or her legal representatives, legatees or distributees will be, or will be deemed to be, a holder of any Common Shares with respect to which he or she was granted an option under the Plan, unless and until certificates for such Common Shares are issued to him or her under the terms of the Plan. (f) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Plan or in any option granted to a Participant, the Corporation's obligation to issue Common Shares to a Participant pursuant to the exercise of an option shall be subject to: -3-

(i) completion of such registration or other qualification of such Common Shares or obtaining approval of such regulatory authorities as the Corporation shall determine to be necessary or advisable in connection with the authorization, issuance or sale thereof; (ii) the listing of such Common Shares on the TSE or other exchange or stock quotation system, if applicable, on which the Common Shares are listed and posted for trading; and (iii) the receipt from the Participant of such representations, warranties, agreements and undertakings, including as to future dealings in such Common Shares, as the Corporation or its counsel determines to be necessary or advisable in order to ensure compliance with all applicable securities laws. (g) A Participant may, rather than exercise options which he or she is entitled to exercise under Subsection 2.07(c), elect in lieu of receiving the Common Shares to which such Participant would have been entitled on exercise of such options (the "Designated Shares"), receive instead the number of Common Shares, disregarding fractions which, when multiplied by the fair value per share (which shall be the weighted average trading price of the Common Shares on the TSE (or if the Common Shares are not listed and posted for trading on the TSE, on such other stock exchange or quotation system on which the Common Shares are listed and posted for trading as selected by the Board of Directors) during the five (5) days preceding the date of determination) of the Designated Shares, is equal to the product of the number of Designated Shares times the difference between the fair value and the exercise price per share of the Designated Shares. This Subsection 2.07(g) shall not apply in the event that the Common Shares are not listed and posted for trading on a Canadian stock exchange or recognized quotation system. (h) If there is a Take-over Bid or Issuer Bid made for all or any of the issued and outstanding Common Shares, then the Board of Directors may, by resolution, permit all options outstanding under the Plan to become immediately exercisable in order to permit Common Shares issuable under such options to be tendered to such bid. Section 2.08 Termination of Employment. If a Participant shall: ------------------------- (a) cease to be a director, senior officer or Key Contributor of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates (and is not or does not continue to be an employee thereof); or (b) cease to be employed by the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates (and is not or does not continue to be a director or senior officer thereof) for any reason (other than death) or shall receive notice from the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates of the termination of his or her employment; (collectively, "Termination") he or she or it may, but only within 180 days next succeeding such Termination, exercise his or her or its options to the extent that he or she or it was entitled to exercise such options at the date of such Termination, including the rights under Subsection 2.07(g), provided that in no event shall such right extend beyond the Option Period. Notwithstanding the foregoing, this section is subject to any agreement with any director or senior officer of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates with respect to the rights of such director or senior officer upon Termination or change in control of the Corporation. Section 2.09 Death of Participant. In the event of the death of a Participant -------------------- who is a director, senior officer or Key Contributor of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates or who is an employee having been continuously in the employ of the Corporation or any of its Designated Affiliates for one year from and after the date of the granting of his or her option, the option theretofore granted to him or her shall be exercisable within the six months next succeeding such death (including the rights under Subsection 2.07(g)) and then only: (a) by the person or persons to whom the Participant's rights under the option shall pass by the Participant's will or the laws of descent and distribution; and -4-

(b) to the extent that he or she was entitled to exercise the option at the date of his or her death, provided that in no event shall such right extend beyond the Option Period. Section 2.10 Adjustment in Shares Subject to the Plan. In the event that: ---------------------------------------- (a) there is any change in the Common Shares of the Corporation through subdivisions or consolidations of the share capital of the Corporation, or otherwise; (b) the Corporation declares a dividend on Common Shares payable in Common Shares or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Shares; or (c) the Corporation issues Common Shares, or securities convertible into or exchangeable for Common Shares, in respect of, in lieu of, or in exchange for, existing Common Shares, the number of Common Shares available for option, the Common Shares subject to any option, and the option price thereof, shall be adjusted appropriately by the Board of Directors in its sole discretion and such adjustment shall be effective and binding for all purposes of the Plan. Section 2.11 Record Keeping. The Corporation shall maintain a register in -------------- which shall be recorded: (a) the name and address of each Participant in the Plan; and (b) the number of options granted to a Participant and the number of options outstanding. ARTICLE THREE GENERAL Section 3.01 Transferability. The benefits, rights and options accruing to any --------------- Participant in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Plan shall not be transferable by the Participant except (i) from the Participant to his or her Holding Company or RRSP or from a Holding Company or RRSP to the Participant and, in either such event, the provisions of this Plan shall apply mutatis mutandis as though they were originally issued to and registered in the name of the Participant, or (ii) as otherwise specifically provided herein. During the lifetime of a Participant, all benefits, rights and options shall only be exercised by the Participant or by his or her guardian or legal representative. Section 3.02 Employment. Nothing contained in the Plan shall confer upon any ---------- Participant any right with respect to employment or continuance of employment with the Corporation or any Affiliate, or interfere in any way with the right of the Corporation or any Affiliate to terminate the Participant's employment at any time. Participation in the Plan by a Participant shall be voluntary. Section 3.03 Delegation to Compensation Committee. All of the powers ------------------------------------ exercisable by the Board of Directors under the Plan may, to the extent permitted by applicable law and authorized by resolution of the Board of Directors of the Corporation, be exercised by a Compensation Committee.

Any such interpretation or construction of the Plan shall be final and conclusive. All administrative costs of the Plan shall be paid by the Corporation.

As your legal counsel, we have examined the proceedings proposed to be taken in connection with the issuance and sale of the Shares to be issued under the Plan. In arriving at the opinion expressed below, we have examined and relied on the following documents: 1. The Restated Certificate of Incorporation and the Restated Bylaws of the Company; 2. The records of meetings and consents of the Board of Directors and stockholders of the Company and INEX Corporation provided to us by the Company; 3. The INEX Corporation Share Option Plan; 4. The Agreement and Plan of Acquisition and Arrangement dated August 13, 1999 by and between the Company and INEX Corporation, as amended; and 5. The Articles of Arrangement of INEX Corporation and InfoSpace.com Canada Holdings Inc. as filed with the Ministry of Consumer and Commercial Relations for the Province of Ontario pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (Ontario). In addition, we have examined and relied on the originals or copies certified or otherwise identified to our satisfaction of all such corporate records of the Company and such other instruments and other certificates of public officials, officers and representatives of the Company and such other persons, and we have made such investigations of law, as we have deemed appropriate as a basis for the opinions expressed below. Based upon the foregoing, it is our opinion that:

1. The Company has corporate power adequate for the issuance of the Shares in accordance with the S-8 Registration Statement. 2. The Company has taken all necessary corporate action required to authorize the issuance and sale of the Shares. 3. When certificates for the Shares have been duly executed and countersigned, and delivered against due receipt of the exercise price for the Shares as described in the options relating thereto and the Plan, the Shares will be legally and validly issued, fully paid and nonassessable. We consent to the use of this opinion as an exhibit to the Registration Statement and further consent to the use of our name wherever appearing in the Registration Statement, including any Prospectus constituting a part thereof, and any amendments thereto.
