So my job is VERY q
atm. is there anything I can do atm my desk to earn some money on the side? Like cookie clicker but with actually money?
You mean I can't cash these fucking things in? Not even for bitcoins?!
It's the best time for me to do it. I have a little notepad square 2cm x 2cm and just type away.
The stunning new novel by Mrs Alcxxk.
A young womans struggle with mild menstrual cramps while at work.
god you shitbags are quick.
dicks don't suck themselves you know!
maybe yours is broken
complete confusing and seemingly pointless tasks for a couple of pennies each on amazon mturk
sell things on ebay
while stealing from purses.
So they can fire you, make you pay the wages you got paid from your second job to them, and if it is anything creative own the copyright (or whatever Epimer will tell you it actually is)
or "in the course of employment" i.e. as part of your contract for employment. They don't own the rights just because it was made during working hours.
(Caveat: not a copyright lawyer)
but you'll find most emplyoment contracts go a step further and say that anything created during 'working hours' is theirs.
I had thought there was an analogous clause somewhere in the copyright legislation, but could be wrong.
includes the draconian drafting. I'm going to have our employment people talk to our IP about this- no point putting in a dickish clause if it's not even enforceable!
But you're on your own with the CDPA1988 (employment generically is in s11, I think)
my employers then recorded and released the song, and didn't give me any publishing or credits for it
Especially because your moral rights (right to be recognised as author etc) aren't transferable.
just thought it was a relevant and interesting story
who was this? what was the song? how does any of this make sense?
they ended up getting another writer in, but kept a couple of my lines*, and the general theme of my lyrics
*"it's raining outside, but the sun's in my heart/
i can feel that something's gonna start"
That's a bit different then. You might well only have rights to be mentioned as author (and even then, maybe not, since your lyrics weren't used wholesale).
is clearly enough that i'm unquestionably owed a writing credit
but bear in mind we work in very, very different industries. some of the shit people get away with here is literally too scandalous to Internet Disclaim
the collected words of guntrip.
one of my posts was used in their promotional materials :D
than try and understand the stock market
just put half on black and half on red. (this is why I am poor).
Wouldn't even need a minimised window for this.
He was just some middling pleb but had his own office so ran an online store for adult DVDs. He wasnt even sacked when they found out!
hiding in the vents dressed as a ninja.
while working. Not filling out the grid so much (which is a fucking ballache by the way, making it all fit in), but just having a list of words and pondering over clues. I can't imagine doing that for an actual job, I think it would drive you slowly mental.
