I do some freelance writing for a local newspaper here, and they have a
similar policy. Their attitude is "we'd rather truthfully say that we
destroyed it than have to pay a lawyer to contest a subpoena compelling
discovery." Not the way I'd choose to work, but there you go.

I find this conversation interesting, because it seems like the rate of
businesses trying to contract away their {customers,vendors} legal rights
and protections is increasing. I've never been yet asked for either business
liability or E&O insurance; I think if I was, such insurance would be
accompanied by a signed document indemnifying me in the event the client
fails to provide timely feedback or otherwise meet their deliverables.
