A friend of mine contracts as a corporate entity. He wrote software over a period of 20 months for a company with no contract or agreement, billed on an hourly basis. Recently, he decided to look elsewhere and in doing so demonstrated some of the software he had written. The company fired him and threatened to sue him. They wanted him to sign a paper saying that the company owned all the software he wrote. He wrote back saying that he owned it and would allow the company to use it royalty free.
Since he wasn't under any kind of NDA, contract, or agreement, is he still a liable as the company says?
