They may be inclined to break the contract if they receive a big enough incentive to do so because a wronged claimant with the benefit of a exclusivity agreement will still be duty bound to show losses as a consequence of the breach and this may not compare to the extra amount that the owner may gain by reneging on the contract, however morally condemnable it undoubtedly is.
