in reply to Professional Employees and Works for Hire

I've been aware of this ever since I took full time employment with my current employer. It was even pointed out to me that legally my employer could confiscate my home network claiming that any work I did to make it function was their 'intellectual' property.

It is a condition of employment that precludes open participation in Open Source... Or even working on one's own website/domain as it no longer truely is one's own.

    What?!? They can confiscate property you have purchased with your own money on your own time? What next, confiscate your kids because you raised them?!?!?
