In such jurisdictions, Poser By Design’s liability shall be limited to the greatest extent permitted by applicable law.
The Buyer hereby agrees to indemnify Poser By Design and its directors, officers, agents, and employees and to hold each of them harmless in all respects, including costs and attorney’s fees, from and against any and all claims, demands, suits, or causes of action of whatever kind or nature and resulting settlements, awards, or judgments resulting from any breach by the Buyer of the License.
