    I'm sitting on a contract right now, and I'd like to sign it, but admittedly, I'm not fluent in Legalese.

    I'd like to go over it with someone who has a background in joint venture contracts as they pertain to IM. Anyone here fit the bill?

    How long is the contract. I have experience but depends on the contract type.

    You probably want a lawyer to look at it especially if you plan on making significant money with this.

    Make sure to have a shotgun clause. Will save you both a lot of headaches down the road.

    Shotgun clause?

    It's only about 10 pages. The gist is, I have a website. Someone wants to market that website with their own offer on the back end. That part is not a problem. It's everything pertaining to liability, creative rights, and termination of the contract that I'd just like to be made clear.

    Google needs Legalese in their Google Translator. :D

    What jurisdiction are you in? What jurisdiction is the other party in? You might want to consider hiring a licensed attorney. You could probably get a good deal on elance or lawyersguide for example.
