IB is in CA.Was there a non-compete clause signed with IB by anybody ?
We sort of have that with the current vBulletin; but that's more management based. Whilst I agree with what you are saying, is this the best thing at the early stage of the product?IMO: hopefully not. You need "veterans" mixed with new blood.
When I sold a business to the Daily Mail group in the UK I was advised that the non-compete clause in the 'sale of business' contract was unenforceable under EU-wide law, I had the same advice when I left the last company I worked for in respect of the 'employment' contract.Non-compete claus won't stand in California, where IB is based.
