Sponsor shall post notice of such action at the blog (currently hosted on https://replicationmarkets.com) or by email to the addresses provided by registered participants.  Each entrant agrees to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Sponsor against any and all third party claims or demands and all related liabilities, damages, settlements, costs, and expenses (including but not limited to, reasonably attorney fees) arising out of any act, or omission of entrant or violation of these Official Rules.
