I'd like to see the EFF take a case like this and go all the way to the Supreme Court of the United States. The concept of "work made for hire" is just another part of the Intellectual Property system in the United States that is crying out for adjustment, so that the rights of the actual author and the public are brought into balance with those of the employer. Practically any creative person who works in the IT industry could devise a more equitable system than this.
