You expressly acknowledge that You have been advised of the contents and effect of such section, and with such knowledge hereby expressly waive whatever benefits I may have pursuant to such section, and release you, notwithstanding the discovery of any information contrary or additional to that now known or believed by them to be true. The filing or bringing by You of any claim, demand, obligation or cause of action in connection with any matter released hereunder shall constitute a breach of this Agreement.
Disputes: THIS Contest IS GOVERNED BY THE LAWS OF the United States of American AND the State of California WITHOUT RESPECT TO CONFLICT OF LAW DOCTRINES. Notwithstanding the foregoing, each party (i.e., each of You and Legion) hereby waives any and all rights and benefits which You or it might be entitled to under the laws of California to litigate any such dispute in court, it being the intention of the parties to arbitrate, according to the provisions hereof, all such disputes. Either party may commence arbitration proceedings by giving the other party written notice thereof and in such notice designating one arbitrator. Within twenty (20) days after receipt of such notice, the other party shall designate in writing another arbitrator. If the other party shall fail or refuse, for whatever reason, to select a second arbitrator within twenty (20) days, as aforesaid, then the first arbitrator appointed shall serve as the sole arbitrator and shall promptly determine the controversy. The two arbitrators shall promptly select a third arbitrator, and if they cannot agree on a third arbitrator within ten (10) days after the appointment of the second arbitrator, either party may secure appointment of the third arbitrator by application to the American Arbitration Association. Each of the arbitrators shall be a person experienced and knowledgeable in the entertainment industry. The arbitrators, when appointed, shall promptly determine the controversy by majority vote and such determination shall be final and each of the parties shall be bound thereby. The arbitration shall be conducted in the County of Los Angeles, State of California, and the arbitration shall be governed by and subject to the laws of the State of California and the then prevailing rules of the American Arbitration Association. The arbitrators' decision shall be controlled by the terms hereunder, and You agree that the amount of any damage award shall be limited to your actual out-of-pocket expenses (i.e., costs associated with entering this Content). Further, under no circumstances shall You be permitted to obtain awards for, and You hereby waive all rights to, punitive, incidental, or consequential damages, any attorney’s fees in connection herewith, any right to have damages multiplied or increased, or any kind of injunction or any other equitable relief (i.e., the only kind of damage award available to You in connection herewith shall be for money). Any decision by the arbitrators shall provide for each party to bear Your or its own costs of arbitration and attorney's fees. If either party shall fail to appear at the hearing on the date designated in accordance with the rules of the American Arbitration Association, or shall otherwise fail to participate in the arbitration proceeding, then the arbitrators or arbitrator, as the case may be, are empowered to proceed ex parte. In no event shall You be entitled to an injunction or any other equitable relief in connection herewith.
