I realize this might not be the best forum for this, but I seriously need advice.
My current employer is about to fire me (i know via text i'm not supposed to see, but you know how working with friends can go). 65+% of the project is rightfully mine in that I never signed any waiver releasing the code yet. Renegotiation was supposed to take place very soon as the project is pretty much complete. I believe that's the real reason for the firing. The program itself stand to make millions in a very short time as it is a one of kind medical software in which the beta has had 300% positive reviews and we actually wrote it as a follow up to a version they had originally created 10 years ago. However, this new program is based off NONE of its ver 1 other than the name and concept. Is there anything I can do to ensure proper legal claim of my code and make sure My family and I aren't put on the street with nothing while these pirates seek to become millionaires again?
