By coincidence my contract was up for review just as tilly posted his Works for Hire article. It did indeed have a clause regarding IP rights and I queried it. I was told that it was only in regard to what I did in work time, and that my own personal IP was protected by UK law.

What divides work time and personal IP? What happens if you work from home, even if only occasionally?
Sorry to here you were sacked :(
