that shit is such bullshit. if he worked on the game while AT work.. fine. but if he did it at home.. screw that.
thats why you dont sign NCs/NDAs
Have you ever been offered a job that didn't require you signing some sort of contract? I'm fairly sure thats pretty standard. You don't want your employees copying your intellectual property and coming out with the same product as you
I have. More than once.
my job now doesn't require one, but then again i wouldnt want to steal anything im coding for personal use anyways. stupid boring stuff for universities
Yup. Now that I own my own company there is no concern at all.
hell fucking best buy made me sign a fucking contract stating i would not take side computer repair jobs
People actually use those Facebook apps? I must be stuck in "old" Facebook mode.
the problem is you never know. i.e. lets say you work at Company A for which you maintain their main website. You then start Company B that does something completely random.
The company then can sue you, because a) how do they know you didn't work on this code while they paid you b) how do they know you didn't use one of their scripts from the website(that you built but which they own) c) how do they know you didn't steal "social networks perform best if you use a blue background" mantra when you designed your site? d) How do they know you didn't use the company issued laptop, with the company issued copy of dream weaver to code everything up?
Its just a huge clusterfuck whenever you get paid by someone, since they own all of your productivity for the hours you work. Oh and lets sa
Its kinda like those games turn based games that were around in 2000, 2001. You have 50 activity points.
Click here to use 5 points to build a tank.
Click here to use 10 points to generate a unit of food.
Click here to use 5 points to roam your land for money.
Click here to use 7 points to invade a neighbor country.
Click here to invite a friend and get 5 activity points.
Click here to spend $5 to get 100 free activity points!
thats such shit, so is freewebs. Fuck freewebs.
Thing is, the game he developed and the company he works for seems to overlap directly.
I think the main thing that my company requires is that you don't work on (on the side, that is) anything related to the project they pay you to work on. This makes sense.
Now if he worked for like... a web hosting company that was suing him for making a game, that would be a bit different. But he's being sued by a online social game company for making his own online social game while working for them.
