      I love the standardisation aspect. This is a really worthy aspiration, and has the potential to lead to better understanding between clients and customers.

      I am also intrigued by the prospect of terms becoming so standard and well known that people can define their agreement simply by noting the areas that depart from the standard. Imagine signing an agreement that just says:

      "The parties agree to the freelance standard terms, with the following exceptions:

      - x; and

      -y."

      This practice already exists with ISDA standard terms for over-the-counter derivatives.

      The UI for entering information is great and easy to follow.

      The only thing that I worry about slightly is the disconnect form the 'form' type UI for entering information and the rather complex contractual language that it produces. For example, if I choose 'work for hire' as my IP setting, the only way to understand that this means I do not own the IP I create for clients is to read 3 paragraphs of fairly dense legal text. Interested to see if you find a way to bridge that gap.
