- Licensee’s Relief of Obligations. Neither the Indemnified Party’s failure to perform any obligation under this Section 4.2 nor any Indemnified Party’s act or omission in the defense or settlement of any such Third-Party Claim will relieve Licensee of its obligations under this Section 4.2, except to the extent that Licensee can demonstrate that it has been materially prejudiced as a result.
