Upon termination of the Agreement, the parties’ rights and obligations under the Agreement shall cease, with the exception of Licensor’s obligation to repay any deposits to Licensee and those rights and obligations that specifically survive the expiration or earlier termination of the Agreement.
ASSUMPTION OF RISK. Licensee agrees that all of its property or property of others brought or permitted by it upon the Premises shall be at the risk of Licensee and that, except as respects the negligence or willful misconduct of Licensor, Licensor shall not be liable to Licensee for any loss or damage to such property by reason of theft, damage, or other loss, or due to any “force majeure” event (as defined herein).
MISCELLANEOUS. A waiver of any breach of this Agreement or of any of the terms or conditions by either party hereto shall not be deemed a waiver of rights of said party to demand strict compliance with the terms hereof. All rights and remedies contained in this Agreement shall be cumulative and shall not limit any other right or remedy to which a party may be entitled. This Agreement contains the entire understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior agreements and understandings between the parties hereto. This Agreement may not be modified, altered, or amended except in writing executed by both parties hereto. This Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of successors and assigns of Licensor and Licensee. All notices, statements, accountings, and other documents required to be given or delivered hereunder shall be given in writing either by personal delivery, by certified mail which delivery is evidenced by a signed receipt, or by telex or telecopier unless otherwise specified. All such notices shall be sufficiently given when the same shall be deposited, so addressed, postage prepaid in the mail, or when the same shall have been telexed, telecopies or personally delivered to the recipient. All notices to Licensor shall be copied to Atlanta Braves Team Counsel, and all notices to Licensee shall be copied to Mesquite Productions, Inc., 10202 West Washington Boulevard, Culver City, HC 111, California 90232, Attn: EVP, TV Legal Affairs. If any provision of this Agreement shall be held void, voidable, invalid or inoperative, no other provision of this Agreement shall be affected as a result thereof, and the remaining provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect as though such void, voidable, invalid or inoperative provision had not been contained herein. Reference in the Agreement or the Standard Terms and Conditions to any particular remedy shall not preclude Licensor from any other remedy at law or in equity, including injunction or specific performance. Notwithstanding the foregoing, in no event shall Licensor be entitled to enjoin or seek to enjoin or restrain or otherwise impair in any manner the production, distribution, exploitation, advertising, publicity or promotion of the Program. Nothing contained in the Agreement shall be deemed to constitute Licensor and Licensee partners or joint venturers with each other or with other party. Licensee shall not assign (except to its affiliates), transfer, hypothecate or encumber, directly or indirectly, this Agreement (including the Standard Terms and Conditions), nor any rights granted or obligations undertaken thereby (including without limitation the sale, merger, stock or asset sale, reorganization, re-capitalization or other transfer of majority equity ownership of Licensee), and shall not permit the Premises or any part thereof to be used or occupied by others, and any attempted assignment to non-affiliates shall be null and void and of no force or effect by others. Licensee acknowledges that the terms and conditions of this Agreement are confidential and agrees not to disclose such terms and conditions except to its employees and agents with a need to know and provided such employees and agents are bound to keep such terms confidential. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts, each of which shall be deemed to be an original and all of which together shall constitute one and the same document. Signatures on this Agreement received by Facsimile, Mail, and/or E-mail copies shall be deemed to be legal originals and signatures thereon shall be legal and binding.
