Amazon Game Studios to its own devs: All your codebase doesn't belong to us


Common practice

Since (at least) the 80s, the following terms have been common in contracts I have been asked to sign: (1) "We own everything you create while you are employed with us - whether on company time or your own time." and (2) "You are prohibited from working in this field for 10 years following termination of employment with this organization."

I have always refused to sign them until they are stricken.
