- Investigate Client’s usage of the Intellectual Property, including purchasing access to Client’s content (ie. courses, programs, etc);
- Block Client from accessing future programs or content belonging to Company;
- Recover all funds expended on investigating Client’s infringement of Company’s Intellectual Property, including (and especially) legal fees, administrative costs for Company to resolve the matter, and fees spent to access Client’s material to investigate any infringement,
