According to ZDNet, 70% of programmers a personal repository of code that they carry from employer to employer. I don't think many programmers think of this as theft. I'm also quite certain that there aren't many employers who tell programmers explicitly that they can't use any code from previous employers. Most employers would be aghast to find their code ended up in someone else's project, but are perfectly happy to be the beneficiary of such an arrangement.
Does This Surprise Anyone?
