It's not like I worked at a ton of companies, but in ours, when we 
recruit, we specifically state in the employment contract that the 
company rescinds all rights on work that is not directly related to the 
client project and is meant to be open sourced. But I'm not sure if 
that's a practice widely adopted. We work with freelancers too, so I 
just wanted to make sure open source contributors felt comfortable and 
perfectly safe working for our company, at the same time protecting the 
clients' interests.
