That is a very helpful summary.
My only quibble is when referring to the fact lawyers may be rushing to impose indemnity clauses perhaps we should mention English law has made it clear you cannot indemnify against a liability for a criminal offence. We have the same issue with indemnify clauses in relation to bribery Act infringements, the criminal part of competition law and the criminals offences of IP law by the way.
It might be worth an article on its own. Warranties are fine of course and you can include the indemnity as long as you make sure the client knows it may well not be enforceable.
