If both are legal, I don't understand why 'a bit of both' can't be...
From the way it is written, if written notice was not given 120 days before Sept. 15 2004, the agreement couldn't be terminated again until Sept. 2005. Failure to give written notice 120 days prior to the expiration date moves the expiration date to the next year after Sept 2004
