Agreement to Assign Inventions & Patents - What Does it Mean?
Usually, employers want you to sign an agreement to assign inventions and patents when they want ownership of your invention or patent rights. Often, these agreements also require you to disclose all prior inventions, and assist your employer in obtaining patent rights.
By drafting these agreements, your current employer is trying to stop you from using inventions created while you worked for a previous employer, for your own benefit. It also prohibits any future employer from gaining or benefitting from the invention or patent.
Employers often write overly-broad invention and patent assignment agreements and require you to sign it as a condition of employment.
