    Simon, I have been down this path too with the legal eagles here. Davids interpretation is the same explained to me by my lawyer.

    He also tells me that the clauses at the end of your invoice (which I also have) is not an iron clad guarrantee in a court of law. If, for instance, you don’t have the signature of the client ‘acknowledging that they have read, understand, and agree to the terms on the invoice’, it can be faught in a court, and there is a good chance you would lose.

    A good legal eagle can still win a case of theft against you if you take back the sign. Possesion still carrys weight in court, no matter what the invoice says.

    End of the day, you got the result you wanted, which is the most important thing in the end.
