There are several. They include:

  2. You are Zip’s client and, therefore, stand on solid footing when negotiating licensing rates.* If the price of a license is too high and outside a budget, then you will have time to consider other talent. *(This does not mean, however, that we are your legal counsel because we are not selling legal services. Any legal advice needed should be directed to your legal counsel before signing an agreement.)
