As a first step, I wouldn't talk to them about payment if they have gone beyond Net 30, I would get an injunction on shipping the product. If they haven't paid you, the work for hire provision in their contract won't be valid, and you still own the copyright. Of course, this only works for software vendors. It wouldn't work for internal IT jobs. Getting standing to get into Federal Court might be difficult if they don't own you more than $10K, but if they sell more than $10K of product that might be enough.
