The copyright wording in the contract is so broad that I'd be
uncomfortable signing it. Seems to me it would make sense for your
employer to rewite that section per their attorney's memo, so that it's
clear what they're claiming ownership to. If the company doesn't want
to do that, you may want to check with an attorney before signing.
