Kirk Turner solved his problem: <<The lawyer just called, and I used Geoff's suggestion. I questioned the clause and found out that it WAS boilerplate, just as Geoff guessed. The lawyer admitted that the subject matter experts are the ones at risk, and I am just a humble assembler and producer of their facts. Boy, I'm glad I don't have to spring for the insurance! >>

Good to hear this worked out for you, but make sure that you get all edits approved "in writing" (e-mail will suffice). That's the only way to cover yourself against any errors that slip through the process. I have another clause I insert in a contract which reads something like the following: "Payment for any editing work that has been submitted by the editor constitutes the client's confirmation that the edited material has been reviewed and approved by the client, and that any remaining errors are the client's responsibility."
