To answer your question, almost all creative folk sign over the rights to their ideas when they sign the creative agency contract. It gets murky if 1) you’re working on a personal laptop 2) outside work hours 3) on stuff that doesn’t relate to your day job.

Imagine it’s because more and more media agencies are pitching creative ideas now. The industry has finally started to work out we never should’ve separated the medium from the message...

Assuming creatives may have some experience here. Have any media people had to? Pros? Cons?,

It’s a formality. Just sign it. What are you planning to invent?!

I have a startup where I had my job write an addendum that they can’t go near it. Theoretically they own anything you come up with during your tenure with these agreements.

You may be able to decline. Sometimes these are optional. But definitely tread with caution.
