Someone below mentioned a non-compete clause that they have an editor sign when working with a client. Does anyone have an actual one they can email me. I would like to protect myself while sub-contracting both production and editing work. Also how are these enforced? Do you have a legal leg to stand on?
Hello Greg. Non-compete clauses are governed by state law, and I understand that in most cases the state courts refuse to enforce them unless they are written with extremely clear and narrow wording(duration, geographical location of band, type of work that is included, etc). Most of the time, these clauses are a waste of ink, but you should ask you attorney as to whether they are enforced in your state. I have one in file if you want it. email me t info @ explorart.com. Cheers,
