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.
