What do you mean? Scrub it out and send it in with different terms on it? One story I got of a photographers site was this:

"this is just like the Queen release. When I signed it (yes, don't shoot me), I asterisked the £1 bit. On the back, at the bottom in small handwriting I put '* £1 not received by xxxxx' and signed it. This was sent back to Queen's solicitor, let alone the record co. and actually had cr4p in it about handing over my negatives, which even the PR guy agreed was stupid.

Anyway, to this day I have never received my £1, and if I received a cheque I'd not cash it nor acknowledge its receipt (that's the legal bit). I've never been chased by anyone for anything and frankly never expect to. If they can't prove you've got your £1, then the contract isn't worth the paper its on and that's legal fact. "

Becuase, let's face it, they're not going to be handing £1 coins or cheques out.

Either write back to them saying that you require amendments and stating what they are, or amend the form itself (and initial the amendments). At worst it'll meant that the terms of the contract aren't enforceable because there was no agreement between you on them.

Got it - so effectively by "opening negotiations" you start a process. So it is better to do that than "ignore it and implicitly accept"?

That depends on whether you want to accept!

It's pretty academic now anyway as I'm not going to go; but in that situation I wouldn't ~want~ to accept... Not sure anyone would! :-)
