Each Party agrees that a final judgment in any such action, litigation or proceeding is conclusive and may be enforced in other jurisdictions by suit on the judgment or in any other manner provided by law.
(b) Choice of Forum for Non-United States Buyers. If Buyer resides (if Buyer is an individual) or is domiciled (if Buyer is an entity) outside of the United States of America, any claim or dispute brought by Buyer and arising out of or related to this Agreement or the Goods shall be submitted to BINDING arbitration in DENVER, COLORADO, USA UNLESS WOWZA AGREES IN WRITING TO WAIVE SUCH REQUIREMENT, in which case section (a), above, will control. Such arbitration shall be before an arbitrator-member of the American Arbitration Association (“AAA”) to be mutually agreed to by the parties, or, in the event the parties cannot agree on a single such arbitrator-member, to a panel of three arbitrator-members selected in accordance with the rules of the AAA. The dispute shall be settled in accordance with the Commercial Arbitration Rules of the AAA and the decision of the arbitrator(s) shall be final and binding upon the parties and judgment may be obtained thereon in a court of competent jurisdiction. Subject to the limitations of liability contained herein, the prevailing Party shall be entitled to recover from the other Party the fees and expenses of the arbitration as well as reasonable attorneys' fees, costs and expenses incurred by the prevailing Party. The Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards shall apply to this Agreement if Buyer resides or is domiciled outside of the United States.
30. Waiver of Jury Trial. Each Party acknowledges and agrees that any controversy that may arise under this Agreement, is likely to involve complicated and difficult issues and, therefore, each such Party irrevocably and unconditionally waives any right it may have to a trial by jury in respect of any legal action arising out of or relating to this Agreement, including any exhibits, schedules, attachments or appendices attached to this Agreement, or the transactions contemplated hereby.
31. Counterparts. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which is deemed an original, but all of which together are deemed to be one and the same agreement. Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in herein, a copy of this Agreement signed or agreed to and delivered by electronic acknowledgement, electronic signature, facsimile, email or other means of electronic transmission is deemed to have the same legal effect as delivery of an original signed copy of this Agreement.
32. Force Majeure. Any delay or failure of Wowza to perform its obligations under this Agreement will be excused to the extent the delay or failure was caused directly by an event beyond Wowza’s reasonable control (which events may include natural disasters, embargoes, explosions, riots, wars, acts of terrorism, strikes, labor stoppages or slowdowns, supplier delays, or other industrial disturbances, and shortage of adequate power or transportation facilities).
33. Relationship of the Parties. The relationship between the parties is that of independent contractors. Nothing contained in this Agreement shall be construed as creating any agency, partnership, franchise, business opportunity, joint venture or other form of joint enterprise, employment or fiduciary relationship between the parties, and neither Party shall have authority to contract for or bind the other Party in any manner whatsoever. No relationship of exclusivity shall be construed from this Agreement.
