I especially dislike those who started out doing a guidebook for
the organization then went out on their own using what they learned while
working for the organization.
In many companies the work that is done while on the payroll belongs to the
company. They are the ones who provided the funds, the office space and the
direction or ambiance for the work completed. The "product" belongs to the
ATC in the case of DBs guide. If they wanted to they could go to court to
enforce their rights, or at least they could have when it was first taken. My
guess (and it is only a guess since I was not a part of this organization back
then) is that the organization was loosely organized and friendships
developed while working gave up the idea of pursuing legal action against a
"friend." A true friend of the ATC would not take their files.
But as I said I came into this area just recently and perhaps there are
others who know the scoop.
