programmed code - yours or the company's?

Programming

markybob writes "While working for my current employer, I do a lot in my job (small company), from basic network setup to programming. At the end of the day, since I never signed any kind of licensing agreement or copyright transfer, I am still the owner of my code, even if I allow the company to use it, correct? If I leave the company, could I reasonably use that code for whatever purposes I fit, even if selling my code to someone else or asking my old company to license it if they wish to keep using it? How would other Slashdotters handle this situation?"

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
