from/against any liability, loss, expense, damages, claims or causes of
arising out of Your use, inability to use, reproduction,
import and/or (re)export of This Product (or portions thereof) and/or
breach of any term of this License.
Warning! Indemnification clause: is it acceptable? It smells as
Ok. Lets look closely at this.
In most of those cases, I cannot see any valid reason for anybody (except
perhaps myself) to sue the company for those actions. Without knowing
exactly what sort of things the company could be liable for based on my
actions, and thus what type of liability I am indemifying them from, I
cannot make any sort of freeness judment on this part of the licence.
Could somebody give examples of what sort of liabilty for them could result
from my perfroming the listed actions?
