I've been offered a contract that includes the clause:
"The Employee wishes to acknowledge that during the course of employment with (company) any discoveries and developments made by the Employee will be owned fully by (company)..."
Does this constitute an IP rights grab? Anyone know any suggested rewordings for this sort of thing?
Well, I complained. The company has come back with this suggested revised text:
"The Employee wishes to acknowledge that during the course of employment with (company) any discoveries and developments made by the Employee related to (company)'s Technology or Products will be owned fully by (company)..."
Does this sound reasonable to you all?
Microsoft delendum est.
