Submission + - Have You Sold Your Brain?

Mateo_LeFou writes: "I've been a freelance web developer for a couple years, but got placed in a "regular" job recently by an IT staffing company. I was very disturbed by their employment agreement, as it seems to assert ownership over anything I think during the contract, and for six months afterward. Additionally, the recruiter kept saying it was all "just a bunch of legal jargon" that neither she nor I should try to understand. But I tried to understand anyway, and was shocked at what it seemed to say. Unless I'm missing something, I find it very difficult to accept these terms. What do you think?"

Is it possible that software is not like anything else, that it is meant to be discarded: that the whole point is to always see it as a soap bubble?
