Scott SheriffRe: Freelance Editing + non competition agreement

This is you answering your own question.
"My issue is ..... I do not work full time for this woman, maybe I edit 1 or 2 projects a year from her (all low pay). She cannot guarantee me a certain number of hours or wage. PBS said they want to continue working with me. They do not want to work with my boss because she does not actually do any editing and going through her is a waste of time and money."


I wouldn't consider this 'stealing' a client.
Don't even think about signing a non-compete with this person. It's pointless since she isn't an editor, and you are not attempting to take her 'producer' job. I don't really see where you are competing with her. And as Cory pointed out, these are notoriously hard to enforce in many states. If you check into it, you may find out this is a violation of your states labor laws. If a client decides that she isn't providing value, and you are, that is her fault. Not yours. If she doesn't like it, and decides not to offer you a couple of low pay jobs this year it doesn't sound like your missing out on much of anything.

I have a system, it has stuff in it, and stuff hooked to it. I have a camera, it can record stuff. I read the manuals, and know how to use this stuff and lots of other stuff too.
You should be suitably impressed...
