The GRI is not giving permission to exploit any third party rights. The Applicant will ascertain whether any such rights exist, pay any royalties or fees claimed by any third party and obtain all other permission required to carry out Applicant's activities without infringing the proprietary rights of, breaching a duty to, or breaching an agreement with, any third party. Applicant will indemnify, defend, and hold the GRI harmless from all costs, charges, fees, or expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees), losses, damages, liabilities, or judgments arising from or relating to any claim, cause, or allegation asserted by a third party against the GRI based entirely or in part on Applicant's exploitation of the Quote(s) licensed hereunder.

3. Permission is granted only for one usage in the Publication in one edition and in one language. Additional language editions and other derivative works based on the Publication must be separately licensed.

If reproduction is to be made from materials depicting the GRI's property, but not supplied by the GRI, the GRI reserves the right to approve these materials.

Applicant will obtain the GRI's prior written approval of final presentation of Quote(s) prior to general distribution or publication of the Publication where the Quote(s) is to be used on the cover of the Publication.
