At the end of the day, since I never signed any kind of licensing agreement or copyright transfer, I am still the owner of my code, even if I allow the company to use it, correct? If I leave the company, could I reasonably use that code for whatever purposes I fit, even if selling my code to someone else or asking my old company to license it if they wish to keep using it? How would other Slashdotters handle this situation?"
