    can a company not allow their product to be compared on my website?

    I work for a semiconductor company (in california) that makes products and sells them to end customers and has about 20 competitors. There is no good way for the 'end customers/users' of these companies to compare these highly technical products from different manufacturers today. I am starting a new company that can do this. It will be like 'Yahoo auto' kind of site that compares cars, but a lot more math is involved.

    I will be using ideas similar to those used in our present company and some from other companies. None of those ideas are protected by patent laws. The comparison is done based on publicly posted 'datasheets' with some form of math applied to those datas and presented in a different format depending on final user's usage conditions.

    My questions are
    a. Can any company from this set of 20, demand that I do not compare their product on my site? If they do demand, then am I within my rights to decline their request and continue to offer the comparisons.
    c. Can my company sue me? Can I continue to work in the company till the basic work is done such as finishing the website etc etc before I finally resign from existing company? How much can I do for my future business while continuing to work. I know I can be fired at any time but is there cause for being sued.
