"A case", yes. But we were talking about defaults. Until you prove
otherwise, NYS law assumes everything you create belongs to your employer.

Mmmmm. Too drastic for me.

Original line from The Warrior's Apprentice by Lois McMaster Bujold:
"Only on Barrayar would pulling a loaded needler start a stampede toward one."
English-to-Russian-to-English mangling thereof: "Only on Barrayar you risk to
lose support instead of finding it when you threat with the charged weapon."
