for a press, news or photographic service (freelancers must be on specific assignment and submit
original proof of assignment). Each Credential issued by CHB authorizes only the Media

etc.). CHB/IBCA/IHSAA may, in their discretion, grant or deny Credentials, or modify these Terms upon notice. The Credential is not transferable and may be revoked at any time.

Restritcted Areas During Event(s)
At no time are you granted access to any restricted area during the event.  This includes any hospitality areas set up for college or high school coaches, and any reserved areas for College Coaches only during the contest.  Abuse of this restriction will result in the revocation of media credentials.

content described above in any commercial manner), except with the prior consent of CHB.

copying/shipping costs at a price to be agreed upon by CHB and the Media Member and/or

published by Media Member or grant permission to or license such reproduced photos or videos.

commercial purposes, unless a separate license is obtained from CHB/IBCA/IHSAA. Use of the Credential

releases permitting the use of any third party's proprietary material, however denominated,
included in any photograph taken, or other material obtained, in connection with the Credential.

occurring before, during or after play, or while otherwise on event site.

The Media Member shall jointly and severally indemnify, defend and hold the Releasees

(including reasonable attorneys' fees and costs of suit/arbitration) arising out of or in connection
with any act or omission done, or alleged to have been done, by Media Member, including,

claim that might give rise to liability of the Media Member as an indemnitor, CHB/IBCA/IHSAA shall (a)
have the right to fully participate in the litigation of such claim with counsel selected by Media
Member, and approved by CHB/IBCA/IHSAA, at the Media Member's sole expense; and (b) not be obligated, without its consent, to participate in any settlement of such claim.
