A number of responses to this thread have suggested bolting from the
agency. This is clearly the wrong approach. As mentioned in early
feedback on this thread, rewriting the contract should be the initial
approach. If the agency pays you, and you like the position, get the
contract you want and keep working. If you can't get them to change the
contract (and I haven't had anyone refuse yet) then vote with your feet
if it is unbearable to have such a contract.

The art of negotiating a contract applies to all customers you may be
serving, not just agencies.

Never be intimidated. No one will ever be offended by you wanting terms
changed to protect you. In fact you will look more professional, you
will seem to be someone who knows what they want and can get it (a value
added trait).
