You Tube Interview on political video

Besides the content, there are a number of things about this video that highlight emerging forms of communication and other changes to society. The format is novel, as the interviewer never actually spoke to the interviewee. I haven't been following this story, and I'm caught by the references to his lost job. Why did his video cause him to lose his job? And more universally, its a problem today that one's digital IP is often a source of contention with employers. What are the rules (what should they be?) about how strictly an employer can control one's IP outside of the office?
