    I believe there's a rule or law that says something like if you receive something and want to keep it for yourself then you have to pay the market price to keep it, otherwise it belongs to the government.

    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    Even if your employer was completely fine with you keeping it, you would have to at least pay income tax on it. =P
