Yes it does. It assigns any damages to any user. It clearly states: if
you want to be The User in this contract, then you "shall indemnify
... the U.S. Government for all ... expenses ... arising from the
utilization of the software". It does not restrict the expenses it
talks about to expenses that are in some way related to MY utilization
of the software.
