He's also saying I'm damaging his reputation with his clients. Especially the same client who was eady to sue him into bankruptcy a few weeks ago, until I did the 70-hour stint he now refuses to even admit he owes. And I'm not happy with him putting the blame on me for his mess-ups.
Good thing we don't have a non-disclosure or a non-compete agreement. I just reminded him of that. Bounce my paychecks, endanger my health, lie to clients, no judge is going to say I owe you continued loyalty. Shove it, Alex.
My now-former boss refused to pay for the extra hours I spent fixing up code last week - code that is based on my GPL'd web framework.
This, of course, is on top of his failure to pay anything for 4 weeks previous (a nice bounced paycheck, etc),
Now, if he had at least made a pretense of paying for last week's coding, he *might* have a claim to it, but it seems to me that obtaining something under false pretenses is pretty much outright fraud. He simply has no claim to an interest in it, since he denies he has to pay for it.
Which leaves me with a "situation." My code is being run, unlicensed. Large portions are not GPL (since I'm the author, I have the right to do this, and many of the modifications wouldn't be of interest to the community anyway, since they're customizations for that one client).
What a mess. I don't believe the customer has the right to use the code, since I placed it on the server under false pretenses - but it's not the customers' fault, and they shouldn't have to suffer because of it. At the same time, my former boss has no right to profit from it, either by billing for it, or by charging a monthly maintenance fee.
I'm going to have to think a bit about this one
