This is very very disturbing. I truly feel for you, personally. Are there any sites that indicate which companies do (and don't) have such a policy?

Another question that arises would be the following (very non-hypothetical):

Does it also belong to my consulting firm?!? *blinkblinkblink* Who owns it? *sighs* As I've only done design work for the second job, it hasn't gotten to your point, I don't think. But ...
