Except for the Wake Ballast Parties and the Indemnified Parties, there are no third-party beneficiaries to this Agreement. You acknowledge and agree that any actual or threatened breach of this Agreement or infringement of proprietary or other third party rights by You would cause irreparable injury to Wake Ballast and Wake Ballast’s licensors and suppliers, and would therefore entitle Wake Ballast or Wake Ballast’s licensors or suppliers, as the case may be, to injunctive relief.
