Legal Question

Asked on: 11/28/01, 7:06 pm

Are my ideas my employers?

My employer required me to sign an agreement

that anything I invent is the company's property.

I enjoy 3d animation as a hobby and my job

doesn't involve 3d at all. My supervisor overheard

me discussing my hobby with another employee

and stated that any artwork or animations I create

are the company's property. I asked him to show

me the aggreement stating that and he

threatened to terminate me for questioning him.

He is now asking that bring all my property to work

so it can be examined.

Ummm. Do I need an attorney? The company I

work for is an internet service provider that has

nothing to do with 3D or graphic design.
