If you read your contract
with them, there is a limitation of liability clause on the shipping agreement you signed. It will tell you that their limitation is the cost of the item shipped if lost or the cost of the shipping refunded. As far as the fees for your losses from the show, you will have to demonstrate negligence on their part and there will litigation since you will have to prove their negligence and that would include the defective shipping labels. you would have a potential claim, but only upon proving negligence, which is one thing they cannot limit their liability on, but it will require going to court more than likely because FedEx generally litigates everything.
