In the FEW cases I have come across - always a big multi-national - this
situation, I have always sent a reply in writing to my boss for forwarding
to the HR dept. It states that before I started work there I have several
works in progress, published materials and am participating in several
productions. They smile, say "No prob" and nothing is a problem.

What they are trying to stop is the following (poor) example:

Joe Pen works for Shoot-em-games Inc (SEG). SEG release a new game, a month
later Joe releases a sequel HIMSELF. Now, where did he get that code and
training from...
