I feel that the SCO about Linux Intelligence property issue brings the problem for programmers, said programmer P writes some codes for Company A, which is very successful, and if programmer P quits and get another job in Company B. The Company A might sue the Company B for Intelligence property issue. To avoid the problem, Company B will make sure it doesn�t hire programmers (like Programmer P ) from company A.
That is end of Programmer P�s career as it is impossible for Programmer P to take advantage of his experience from company A to search for new career. The worst is that the intelligence property might be the result of Programmer P�s creative and hard working. Programmer P �s creative and hard working benefits company A and public also end of his further.
It is unfair to programmers, isn�t it? What do you think?
