<< But what is wrong with spelling out your responsibilities and expectations
prior to starting work? (snip) if you want to be treated like a
strongly urge you to act like one.
Let's put it this way Hal, you missed the point entirely. The situation
described was where the artist had yet to obtain the contract for work and
wanted the client to sign "a little something" prior to the work contract.
Sort of a pre-work contract. This was so that the dishonest client wouldn't
steal their pre-work presentation. Any "professional" trying such a move
would more likely be shown the door aound here. And, if the client really was
dishonest then it was probably a good thing that they didn't get the work
PS - What was really weird to me in this whole story was going back three
times to do presentations and brainstorming. How many "professionals" out
there would have the time to do such a thing. Then go on to fume and fuss
about it and go to court and waste even more time.
