The copyright in all advertisements shall belong to the ADVERTISER or alternatively shall be the subject of a licence in favour of the ADVERTISER and the ADVERTISER hereby indemnifies the PUBLISHER against any claim, damage or expenses arising from any claim for breach of copyright in respect of any advertisement inserted in space booked by the ADVERTISER.
