Slashdot has an article about whether a company owns an idea outside its line-of-business that an employee develops on his own time. Alcatel has won this one , or so it appears.

Note to Californians: this ruling applies specifically in Texas. California has a specific law that means you own stuff developed on your own time, with your own stuff, outside your company's line-of-business. Not all states are so fortunate.
