Don't know if any of you have heard about this, but Ubisoft are trying to enforce a contract stating that anyone who works for them can't work in the same industry for A YEAR after they leave... more here.

There seems to be a lesson here that all games companies are still failing to learn - if you treat your staff like shit, if you don't pay them enough, and then expect them to work not just a couple of hours of overtime, but say, 8 or 9 hours of overtime per day during "busy" times, if you constantly threaten them with replacement, then they will leave.

Surely it can't be that hard to form a union?
