Then i realize this happen when i worked at a TV station, we would get memos about what Ads, that we must remove or play over.

Then as i google up things, this seems to be a normal thing for business vs business, but why? Are both scare of the competition? Afraid that some mom and pop company might come in your territory and offer better deals? ( thus why you lobby for city's/counties not to invest in their own ISP).
Ultimately, it's because they have decided to take an "us vs. them" approach to business, whether sensible or not.

All business is us-v-them, just as all courtrooms are basically adversarial.

Maybe we'll grow out of this one day.

(And before you start in on "business cooperation," remember the maxim that no man is truly sad at even his best friend's failure. No business cooperates to their own significant detriment.)

That isn't true universally. Businesses with the same market/niche tend to be adversaries, but not businesses in different markets or businesses operating at different points in the production chain. In the latter case, they are actually friends (for instance, an automaker is friends with the company that produces the steel).

Cooperation is not necessarily free of adversarial facets. Most automakers will and do switch to another steel provider the minute it's financially advantageous to do so, even if it means a huge blow to the prior supplier.

That the C-levels get together for drinks is not necessarily "cooperation."

Just open generally why have them from the start anyways? rather its BvB or BvE..
I don't know if I read this before or answered it.

Hubs tried having employees sign these years ago. Our attorney said you can not do that as you can't stop someone from making a living. And if it was to go to court we would lose.

We actually had one of our employees leave and try and he was a smashing failure within 3 months. He alos didn't have the money to keep it going. Yet another moron over rating his talents and not having the connections. He had no idea how many years it took my husband to get to where he was at the time this clown worked for us.

Now if you are given some kind of compensation, you sell a business, many times that is included in the contract. Like you can't start the same business for 5 years or you can't start this same type of business within 250 miles, etc. Both of the mentioned situations I am aware of.
