exclusive, non-transferable, revocable license to install and use one copy of the
Software on the DTV, subject to the following limitations and restrictions:
You may not share, duplicate, republish or redistribute the Software;
You may not resell, rent, lease, sublicense, gift, loan, as sign or otherwise
transfer the Software or any of your rights under this Agreement;

Software in combination with any non-Hitachi software; and
You may not use the Software for any commercial purpose.
VIOLATIONS; INDEMNITY. You understand and agree that your use of the
Software in any manner except as permitted under this Agreement could
constitute a serious crime and could subject you to damages and an award to
HITACHI of attorneys' fees in connection with your violation of this Agreement.
You further understand that you may be held legally responsible for any
copyright infringement or other violation of intellectual property rights caused
or facilitated by your failure to abide by the terms of this Agreement. You agree
to defend, indemnify and hold HITACHI and its parent and affiliate companies
harmless from and against any and all liability resulting from any breach by you

and suppliers. Except as expressly provided herein, neither HITACHI nor any
of its licensors or suppliers grants to you under this Agreement any express or
implied right in or to any patents, copyrights, trademarks, trade secrets or other

such Upgrade or other software or intellectual property. In the event HITACHI
provides you with a "flash card" or other media to effect or facilitate an Upgrade,
