My understanding is that it means that you hold the person you have
the contract with harmless in case of any lawsuits that come out of
the work you've contracted to do for them. (Phew, that's a
mouthful!)  With illustration, they're usually concerned about suits
about plagiarism (e.g. - if I copied a copyrighted image and sold it
as original work...)
The PEGS has some good info about this (Graphic Artists Guild Pricing
and Ethical Guidelines book).

Phillip - that's pretty much how I feel about it, but am waffling I
guess because I really like this job. But probably not enough to
compromise on this...
