Q. Creative rights

Q.Creative rights
I am working at a content company. When I took the job, I signed a contract stating that the company would have rights to my creative works. If I write a book during my off-time, will the company be able to claim right to my work?

A. ) When you joined the company then it would have given you a role and broad scope of work including the area where you have to write or create a content for. So when you create something during your off time and using your own resources and not the company provided then it will belong to you.
Having said that it may happen that what you have created has taken lots of inspiration and sources from your area of work (job) then company may raise a concern or ask for IP rights.
So you need to careful the way and the topic on which you writing and also keep a clear demarcation between your office work and private work.

A. ) Dear Client,
Writing a book is a creative work not pushing the file from one table to the other.
Since the company will have the right to creative work means book will automatically
come under this category.
