18. Indemnification by Licensor.  Licensor will under no circumstances, be obligated to indemnify, defend, or hold Licensee harmless from any liability, claims, demands, causes of action, judgments, damages, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ and experts’ fees and costs) arising out of or as a result of Licensee’s or its sub-licensees’ use of the Licensed IP under this Agreement.

19. Indemnification by Licensee.  Licensee must indemnify, defend, and hold Licensor harmless from all liability, claims, demands, causes of action, judgments, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ and experts’ fee and costs) arising out of or as a result from Licensee’s or its sub-licensees’ use of the Licensed IP other than any third party claims covered by this Agreement.  Licensee will not be obligated to defend or hold harmless Licensor in the event that any claims, demands, causes of action, judgments, or expenses arose out of willful misconduct, gross negligence, or bad faith by Licensor.

20. Indemnification Procedure.  Promptly after receipt by Licensor of notice of any indemnification claim, Licensor must give Licensee written notice describing the claim in reasonable detail, along with copies of any correspondence, court documents, or other writings stating the claim.  Licensee will be responsible for the defense or settlement of the claim, at its own expense and by counsel of its own selection and Licensor will have the right (at its own expense) to participate in the defense of the claim.  Licensor must reasonably cooperate with Licensee and its counsel in the defense and settlement of the claim.  Licensee cannot enter into any settlement with respect to any claim without the prior written consent of Licensor, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld.  If Licensee declines to assume the defense of the claim, Licensor may assume such defense and settle the claim as it deems appropriate, provided that Licensor does not enter into any settlement with respect to the claim without the prior written consent of Licensee, which consent will not be unreasonably withheld.

21. Limitations of Liability. EXCEPT FOR ANY REMEDIES THAT CANNOT BE EXCLUDED OR LIMITED BY LAW, NEITHER PARTY, NOR ANY AFFILIATE, WILL BE LIABLE UNDER THIS AGREEMENT TO THE OTHER PARTY, ANY AFFILIATE OR OTHER THIRD PERSON FOR ANY INDIRECT, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, SPECIAL, RELIANCE, OR PUNITIVE DAMAGES OR LOST OR IMPUTED PROFITS, LOST DATA OR COST OF PROCUREMENT OF SUBSTITUTE GOODS OR SERVICES. THIS LIMITATION OF LIABILITY MAY NOT BE VALID IN SOME STATES. LICENSEE MAY HAVE RIGHTS THAT CANNOT BE WAIVED UNDER CONSUMER PROTECTION AND OTHER LAWS.  LICENSOR DOES NOT SEEK TO LIMIT LICENSEE’S WARRANTY OR REMEDIES TO ANY EXTENT NOT PERMITTED BY LAW.

22. Term.  This Agreement will commence upon purchase of the license  by the licensee and will continue in full force and effect for an initial period of 1 year and annually as renewals are purchased.

23. Termination.  Either Party may terminate this Agreement immediately upon delivery of written notice to the other Party specifying clearly the grounds for termination if the other Party commits a material breach of its obligations under this Agreement and fails to cure the breach within 30 days after written notice of the breach is received by the breaching Party.  For the avoidance of doubt, termination will be without prejudice to any liability incurred prior to the effective date of termination.

24. Assignment.  This Agreement may not be assigned by Licensee without Licensor’s prior written consent.  Licensor may assign this Agreement, in whole or in part, to any Affiliate or successor.  The rights and obligations under this Agreement will be binding upon the Parties and their successors.  The use of the Licensed IP, however, shall inure solely to the benefit of Licensor and its respective successors and permitted assigns.  Any attempted assignment or delegation in contravention of these provisions will be void and ineffective.

25. Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement is held invalid, illegal or unenforceable by a court of competent jurisdiction, the remainder of the Agreement will be valid and enforceable and the Parties will negotiate in good faith a substitute, valid and enforceable provision which most nearly puts into effect the intent of the Parties.

26. No Waiver.  This Agreement may not be altered, modified, or amended in any way except in writing signed by both Parties.  The failure of a Party to enforce any provision of the Agreement will not be construed to be a waiver of the right of such Party to thereafter enforce that provision or any other provision or right.

27. Entire Agreement.  This Agreement and the attachments hereto represent and constitute the entire agreement between the Parties, and supersede and merge all prior negotiations, agreements, and understandings, oral or written, with respect to any and all matters between the Parties.

28. Governing Law.  The Parties hereby agree that this Agreement will be governed by, and constructed and enforced in accordance with the laws of the State of New York, without reference to rules governing choice of laws. 

29. Disputes. Any dispute arising from this Agreement shall be resolved in the courts of the State of New York.

30. Notices.  All notices, demands or other communications to be given under this Agreement by either Party to the other may be effected either by personal delivery in writing or by U.S. mail, registered or certified, postage prepaid with return receipt requested. Mailed notices shall be addressed to the other Party at the address appearing in the introductory paragraph of this Agreement, but each Party may change such address by written notice in accordance with this paragraph. Notices delivered personally will be deemed communicated as of actual receipt. Mailed notices will be deemed communicated as of two (2) days after mailing.

31. Amendments.  Subject to any express limitations set out therein, the License and Consideration Sections in this Agreement may be amended  or modified by Licensor, consistent with the processes established by Licensor to reflect the addition and/or removal of an item of intellectual property; for legal or reasonable commercial reasons, to  delete countries where the licensed IP can be used, and Licensee will be notified of each such deletion accordingly; and to amend the amount of fees, but no more frequently than 90 days.  Unless otherwise agreed, amendments will take effect upon being communicated in writing to Licensee.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the Parties have entered into this Agreement as of the licensee’s purchase of a MCM Business License. By purchasing the MCM Business License, the licensee validates this agreement between Licensor and Licensee. With every renewal, the Licensee accepts all new versions of the license and is therefore fully responsible to review all updated licenses prior to annual renewal.
