comment Can my company give IP rights away for an application I wrote off hours to another startup?
@Keltari - Ethics and legality is two complete different things, i.e. something might be legal but everyone will agree that it is unethical. Plus, as long as I've been on SO, tags have implied context.

@Keltari - To be fair, the asker also asked about the ethics of the situation which most people haven't been responding to.

@Keltari - Depends upon the jurisdiction though, in the United States you can not gain monetary benefit from the work of an unpaid intern. At a minimum they would have to retroactively pay the asker at least minimum wage. This is part of the reason why interns are typically paid as they officially fall under the work for hire laws at that point.

The person asking is an unpaid intern, I suspect that paid time off will not be possible.

From a legal standpoint in the United States, being an unpaid intern usually means that a lot of the work for hire laws don't apply to you.

comment Is it a good idea to design an architecture thinking that the User Interface classes can be replaced by a command line interface?
@jwd - Maya is an example I picked because I used it a couple years ago, if you have a better one in the same line of thought let me know. Maybe Bryce although it's not as well know?
