Perl Scripts Pre-Date Intel Employment
In his declaration filing Rivers states:
"These 110 Perl scripts date back to the time period approximately 2006-2008 and
contain software code that I wrote as an employee of Micron".
So what valid claim can Intel make on them?
Also in the same document Rivers states the following pertaining to the employee list:
"I created a single aggregated file into which I inserted
a column that included an “X” mark to indicate the recipients of the farewell email, then filtered
the subset, in order to copy the addresses into the farewell email."
"I was concerned, however, that upon giving notice of my departure from Intel, I
might be deprived of email access immediately, which would prevent me from sending the
farewell email from my Intel email account. Therefore, I kept a copy of the list, in case I needed
to send the farewell email from a personal email account."
I can relate both to keeping old work for code references or sentimental purposes, and the email list explanation also sounds plausible.
