You shall not launch or otherwise use any robot, spider, scraper or other automated means to access the Veoh Service in a manner which sends more request messages to the Veoh server in any given period of time than a typical human would normally produce in the same period by using a conventional on-line web browser to read, view and submit materials.

You shall notify Veoh immediately if You become aware of any actual or potential Claims, suits, actions, allegations or charges that could affect Your or Veoh’s ability to fully perform its respective duties or to exercise its respective rights under these TOU.

This defense and indemnification obligation will survive these TOU and Your use of the Veoh Service.
