any subsidiaries or affiliates of WCSI which are wholly owned and controlled
by the parent company Profit Financial Corporation, Inc., Cook, and Money Chef
agree to indemnify and hold harmless WCSI against any damage or judgment,

also agree to reimburse WCSI for all expenses, including court costs,

resisting any claim, demand, suit, action or proceeding asserted or
instituted against WCSI based upon the sale of the Product or by reason of
anything contained therein.

connection with the promotion, advertising, distribution, financing,
marketing and production of the Productions or derivatives therefrom, and for
general organizational promotional purposes.

notice, at its headquarters, the financial books related to payment of
royalties hereunder.


Any dispute between the parties arising out of this Agreement which cannot be
amicably settled shall be referred to arbitration upon written notice by
either party to the other. The arbitration shall be governed by the laws of
the State of Nevada. Said arbitration is to be held in Seattle, Washington.
Any award rendered in arbitration shall be binding and conclusive upon the
parties and shall not be subject to appeals or retrying by the court.


In the event this Agreement is placed in the hands of an attorney due to a
default in the payment or performance of any of its terms, the defaulting
party shall pay, immediately upon demand, the other party's reasonable
attorney fees, collection costs, costs of either litigation, mediation, or
arbitration (whichever is appropriate), whether or not a suit or action is
filed, and any other fees or expenses reasonably incurred by the
non-defaulting party.


This Agreement shall be governed by the laws of Nevada.



This Agreement is the entire, final and complete agreement of the parties and
supersedes all written and oral agreements heretofore made or existing by and
between the parties or their representatives.
