Just to get way off-topic here... That's not entirely true.  Certainly
not in the USA & quite possibly not in a number of other countries.
Read up of IP law: if you develop (even on your own time) something
that suggests itself to you due to your normal day-to-day activities
at your place of employment, your employer can claim IP rights over
your work.  Makes if a good reason to have a hobby unrelated to your
profession. :)
