RWS – for what it’s worth, I know in the US that you cannot create a contract that contradicts the law. So, any contract that supposedly protects you from legal action against something that is already law, such as existing copyrights, becomes an invalid contract. All other parts of the contract will stand up in court, but you can be liable for the sections which are not legal. I’m no attorney – so you’d want to speak with someone who knows better.
