Hi All,

I've been negotiating with this new client for five weeks now for a new
writing project.

So far, I've given in to all their demands except content responsibility. I
want them to be responsible for final say of the content. They refuse to
include any reference to content responsibility in the contract.

This project could lead to bigger things, but their refusal to accept
content responsibility bothers me.

Any suggestions?
