Adjacent to this idea, all "personal" projects worked on during company time could be considered company property since even if you use your own hardware they're still paying for everything you do while on the clock including that project. I'd rather keep my personal projects personal.

EDIT: Just noticed Shao Voon Wong's comment. Yea, exactly that.
