Re: <nettime> intellectual property, Hollywood style


this work made for hire thing is something freelance writers are fighting
more and more and in more and more venues. virtually all contracts signed
through third-party employment firms are work-made-for-hire, for instance.

even as a full-timer at a hip internet consulting company, basically
everything i think is owned by my employer. makes me wary of being too
terribly creative on the side, if you see what i mean. my life is work made
for hire.

huh. i wonder if i should be saying this in public with my name attached.
oh, well.
