  •  This is grossly unfair (11+ / 0-)

    Ownership restrictions like this are not uncommon in employment contracts, and in higher education.  For example, the work my graduate students do officially is mine and the universities. (There is a sound tradition of helping students and postdoc's develop their "walking project", and it is very good to be able to continue collaboration with a now equal partner as a new faculty member).

    The difference is that you don't have to work for a given employer and you don't have to go to graduate school.  You do have to go to elementary school. So there is no relevant notion of free consent to a restrictive clause.
