in reply to
(OT) Professional Employees: who owns your thoughts?
I'd like to point out that this happened in the USA, the land where
everyone has the right be screwed. Laws in other countries differ.
I believe that in most European countries the company wouldn't even
have gone to court, and if they did, would have lost.
So, if you people are generalizing in this thread (as in "most companies
do ...") they are just generalizing for the USA (and mean
"most American companies do ..."). The world doesn't stop
at the US borders.
