Talk about undermining the industry, literally sawing off the branch you're sitting on. It's a creative industry we're talking about after all. Confused

The United States has this too, in Silicon Valley. Tech companies make you sign non-compete clauses that forbid you to work for competitors after you leave, in order for all the big companies to avoid having to compete with better working conditions and more pay. Not sure how legal or how enforceable it is, but knowing the political culture of the US, I wouldn't be surprised at all if it's all completely legal, or at the very least, abused by employers who don't let their employees know their rights.

It depends where you are in the US. In California, non-competes are unenforceable, and a bunch of big tech companies have been investigated under anti-trust laws regarding whether they had agreements not to go after each others' employees.

Considering how Common Law works, that would be a possibility. That would be more difficult to enforce in other countries when the laws are written in stone and cannot be interpreted in different ways at will.
