In the event you breach the terms of this license, or if, any claims are made against Indie Music Space (its employees, volunteers, officers or directors resulting from your actions) you shall be liable to Indie Music Space for all damages, costs, judgments, expenses (including reasonable attorney fees) which it incurs.
This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Illinois, as applied to contracts entered into and performed within Illinois.
