Affiliate agrees to cooperate in whatever way VIGEO requests to attempt to protect Confidential Information from disclosure by operation of law. Affiliate agrees that its obligations in this section are necessary and reasonable in order to protect VIGEO and its business, and Affiliate agrees that the remedy of damages would be inadequate to compensate VIGEO for any breach by Affiliate of its obligations set out under this section.
