Yeah, the corporate contract. I'm a software manager for a big faceless corporate entity.
I've tried to start my own web sites, but found that I can't compete with Facebook and Amazon, even with nifty SEO ideas to get me to the top of Google and Bing. It was fun learning though, and getting back to writing code - which my day job no longer allows.
I'm sure that my employer actually owns the IP now for those 2 little sites. Good luck with that.
More recently, I've returned to playing music as a hobby, and am finding that I'm decent at writing rock songs.. the music anyway.
Never thought about it before parent's post, but I wonder if my company owns my creative output too, even though it has nothing to do with technology.
