Skilled workers of the early nineteenth century enjoyed a degree of professional independence because workplace knowledge and technical skill were their ''property, '' or at least their attribute. In most sectors of today's economy, however, it is a foundational and widely accepted truth that businesses retain legal ownership of employee-generated intellectual property.
