Re: Part VIII :  Employment Limitations

may need to think about the differences in employment law in different
jurisdications.

AIUI European employment law typically does not recognise the concept
of trade secrets and strictly limits the rights of employers to
material created by an employee in their own time using their
materials. on the other hand, authorization of the work by the
employer may led to loss of rights to material created by the employee
in the employer's time. any agreements related to employment will be
interpreted under employment law rather than contract law (which are
quite different) so even a signed CCLA may offer little help to the
ASF in the event of a dispute. so, may need an additional clause with
different wording for those in similar jurisdictions.

(but of course IANAL)
