Re: Oracle treating employees badly?

"That meant that if I wrote a book, composed any music, created a video all royalties would go to Oracle."

This is a common type of clause except that they usually say if it's related to your work, or that you have to get agreement in writing to exceptions. Many employers would be reasonable about such things I think, and I doubt that Oracle would be able to win a case claiming that since JR Hartley worked for them when he wrote "Fly Fishing", they owned the rights.
