Default Screw you, pay me

Came across this today - an *excellent* talk about getting paid by clients, and the value of legal counsel when appropriate. This is aimed specifically at the creative services industry, but certainly valuable info nevertheless --->

Watching it now. Not a lot of it applies but it's food for thought.

I'll be passing it on to my sis-in-law who is a designer.

Just finished watching it... has some good advice. I thing everyone should take the time to listen to this.
Maybe your contract isn't up to snuff, maybe you don't have everyone sign something when they leave off a computer... maybe you should.

I've passed this on to a web designer/ programmer friend of mine who I heard complaining recently about a client.

Very good advice.
summarized
if you are a professional have a lawyer & a contract
Don't just sing stuff
stick to the contract
If their lawyer is there, yours need to be too
