Minh’s Notes

Human-readable chicken scratch

Why read over contracts?

Sure, everyone knows that the person who writes contracts will slip in certain “clauses” – the scene from A Night at the Opera (unofficial link), where the two discuss a “sanity clause,” comes to mind. But you’d never think a company would get this kind of stuff, would you?

The sales representative kindly agreed to remove the clause when I pointed out that it wasn’t really sensible for us to ‘mortgage’ our company and all its intellectual property, and all its future, yet-to-be-created intellectual property, just to obtain telephone services worth under $500 a month.


Thanks to Dave Shea for the link.
