hello,
I came accross with the sentence below and I can't figure out what it exactly means. If you help me to understand what it says, I'll be glad.
Thanks in advance

the parties shall indemnify each other that the intellectual property broght by the party into the territory of the other party for the implementation of any other project or activities is not resulted from any infringement of third Party's property rights

It seems to mean: If you are on Team A, and you join Team B for a project, you must indemnify Team B against liability if you use intellectual property that you've stolen from Team C.

I am neither a teacher nor a lawyer.

It is saying that you and I (the parties) guarantee that any intellectual property (for example a software program) that we bring to each others country (territory) for use (implementation) in any project is not pirated or copied without permission (resulted from infringement of someone else's rights).

So whatever the intellectual property may be it is legal and being used properly.

Again, I am not a lawyer, but this is how I would interprete this if I saw it in a contract.

Could "is resulted from" be intended to mean "does not result in"? It is common in legal documents to read " ... does not result in the infringement of the intellectual property rights enjoyed by any third party within that territory."

I actual think it's a sentence by a non-native speaker, or it's been transcribed incorrectly.

But I still think they're asking for indemnity if such a misuse of intellectual property occurs - not a guarantee that it won't occur.

But I'm not a lawyer either.
