Agreement to Assign Inventions & Patents – What Does it Mean?
Employers may seek to assign inventions and patents when they want ownership of invention or patent rights. These agreements also may require disclosure of all prior inventions, and assist an employer to obtain patent rights.
By drafting these agreements, an employer may stop an employee from using inventions created while working for a previous employer, for the employee’s own benefit. It also prohibits any future employer from gaining or benefiting from the invention or patent.
These agreements may be incorporated as a condition of employment.
