7.1 Indemnification by Customer.  Customer will defend and indemnify the Ziva Parties from and against any Claims arising out of or related to: (i) the Customer Content; or (ii) Unauthorized Use of the Development Tools.

7.2 Indemnification By Ziva.  Ziva will defend and indemnify Customer, its Affiliates, and its and their respective directors, employees and agents, from and against any Claims that Customer’s use of the Development Tools in accordance with the terms of this Agreement infringes any United States copyright or patent right of any third party.  Ziva’s indemnity obligations under this Section 7.2 do not apply to any infringement resulting from any:  (a) modification to the Development Tools caused by Customer or any third party on Customer’s behalf; (b) combination of the Development Tools with any other products, services or content provided by Customer or any third party; or (c) use of the Development Tools, if the infringement would have been avoided by the use of a current release or Updated version of the Development Tools which Ziva has made available to Customer.

7.4 Infringement Claim.  If Ziva reasonably believes that the Development Tools will be subject to an indemnity Claim for infringement under Section 7.2, Ziva may use commercially reasonable efforts to either: (a) acquire the right for Customer to continue to use the Development Tools in accordance with the License; or (b) provide an Update or other Improvement to avoid the infringement.  If Ziva reasonably determines that neither (a) or (b) above are commercially reasonable, then Ziva may terminate the Term, effective on the date of the notice of termination.  The indemnity and other remedies provided in this Section 7 constitute Ziva’s sole obligation and liability and Customer’s exclusive remedy for or related to any Claim contemplated by Section 7.2.
