About 8 months ago a recruiter hooked me up with a guy to do a project. Well the project never happened and I never heard back from the recruiter (actually I think he got layed off). Well recently I contacted the guy with the project. He said the project never went through because the rectruiter had told him a rediculous rate. But we talked about possibly doing work together in the future. Now I am a DBA and use a company name.

Do I have any obligation to call the recruiter and tell him I might work with this guy in the future on a different project?

I don't have a copy of the form I signed (

No. I have had recruters steal potential jobs from me. They need not know anything that you do on your own.

I agree with korkus2000, I wouldnt sweat it if I were you ;).

As long as you didnt sign a 'no compete' clause, you should be fine. And if a recruiter approaches you in the future, you could always negotiate a 'modified' no compete, that states you wont go after that particular project, but that you have no obligation beyound that. Then you can work with the client on future projects.
