please call me - and pay me
The SA Times reports that a Vodacom ex-employee is planning to sue the network operator. He apparently alleges that he was inadequately compensated for the development of the 'please call me' text service, which asks recipients to call the sender. From a legal viewpoint, one hopes that the matter proceeds to hearing, as decisions on ownership in the South African copyright context are rather thin on the ground.
