being of other tenants;

(2) that the cable television company or the tenant or a combination
thereof bear the entire cost of the installation, operation or removal
of such facilities; and

(3) that the cable television company agree to indemnify the landlord
for any damage caused by the installation, operation or removal of such
facilities.

(b) demand or accept payment from any tenant, in any form, in exchange
for permitting cable television service on or within his property or
premises, or from any cable television company in exchange therefor in
excess of any amount which the commission shall, by regulation,
determine to be reasonable; or

or avail himself of master or individual antenna equipment.
