Default Non-Compete Clauses - Your Opinions?

I would like to ask Sitcoms Online members:What do you think of "Non-Compete Clauses"? You often hear about such a clause if an employee were to leave a particular company. They are very common among commercial radio stations and television stations, especially for radio personalities and television personalities working for media conglomerates. For example, if a radio or television personality quits, or is laid off or fired from one station in the media market they work in, they cannot work for another competing station in the same market until their contract with their former employing station expires.

The definition of a non-compete clause:
Quote:
In contract law, a non-compete clause (often NCC), or covenant not to compete (CNC), is a clause under which one party (usually an employee) agrees not to enter into or start a similar profession or trade in competition against another party (usually the employer).

These things get a very thorough review for fairness if they're challenged in court. If someone is actually fired or laid off (kicked off the payroll) it would be unlikely to be enforced.* The same would be true if it stopped someone from working in the area for more than a year or maybe two after the contract expired, or if it stopped someone from working in related fields, like a DJ barred from working as a producer. Basically, the clause has to be reasonable to be enforced.

*As always, their are exceptions, like if the employee acted outrageously to force the firing.
