UC grab for intellectual property

Dear Steve,

Like you I worked for the UC (UCLA). When they hired me they asked me to sign the loyalty oath (Angela Davis issues:) and that anything I developed would be theirs. I simply modified the terms to say that it was theirs only if their resources were used. Since it was a unilateral contract, they couldn't get at things I did at home without their resources. The administrator told me that they did it to get an IBM researcher, on loan from IBM to teach there. Since then, I read everything before I sign it, and change the things I don't like. It usually works. 18:05, 11 January 2010 (PST)
