    preventing backtalk from renters

    This reminds me of a time, years ago, when I was looking for work. I was trying to sign up with a temp-work agency. The agreement they wanted me to sign was draconian. It included a clause that bound the signer to any/all regulations that might be set by the future employer(s) - and you had no idea what they might be. It included a clause that gave the temp agency - not the employing company - rights to any copyrightable creation you might make while they (the agency) was hiring you on behalf of a future employer. I refused to sign, and went looking for work elsewhere. On a happy note, that agency is no longer in business.
