I was asked to agree to the following employment agreement and I have concerns: I acknowledge that all of my work product, including materials, ideas, and other property, whether or not copyrightable, which I create with myself or with others relating to my employment with the company is "work made for hire" for the company within the meaning of the US Copyright Act of 1976 and for all others purposes, and I hereby assign in perpetuity all of my rights in any such work product which may not be work for hire, exclusively to the company.
I will likely file for several patents next year. The subject matter of these patents has nothing to do with the type of business performed by the company who extended me the offer. Furthermore, I would be a seasonal employee.
Do I have reason to be concerned about them taking control of any of my ideas? Also, I understand broadly what work product is, but I do not understand what would constitute work product and yet not be considered as work for hire.
