When it comes to patents, many people outside the industry often think that the person registered as the inventor of a patent automatically owns that patent. While this is certainly the case in some cases, there are several cases where another person, or even a company, may be granted ownership of the patent. This is called a «patent order» and is the subject of today`s article. NOW, THEREFORE, for a good and valuable consideration whose receipt is heres not to receive, the agent in question has sold, awarded, transferred and sold, transferred, transferred and translated by these gifts, sold, transferred, transferred and translated, to the agent in question, his successors, his legal representatives and his ceders from the date of effect presented above. , all rights, titles and interests, and under the rights of patents in the – to make use of the priority of these patent rights as comprehensively and comprehensively as the Ziter would not have done had this assignment and sale not taken place, as well as all claims for damages for prior infringement of patent rights , with the right to sue and recover the same for the use and enjoyment of the agent`s self-use, and for the use and enjoyment of their successors, their beneficiaries of the transfer or other legal representatives. In addition to the aforementioned patent award agreement, it is also recommended that a specific written assignment from the inventor to the company be made each time a patent application is filed. If this is done, there will be fewer problems if an inventor leaves the company before the patent application is completed or attempts to challenge the patent on the street. Although these two patent activities are somehow similar, they are in fact very different. A licensing agreement means that the patent holder (or «licensee») grants another person or company (the «licensee») the right to use the patented technology for an agreed period of time.
However, the licensee remains the owner of the patent. On the other hand, the granting of patents involves a complete and permanent transfer (or «assignment») of the ownership of a patent by the owner (or «agent») to another party (the «agent»). Simply put, patent granting includes «property,» while the patent license includes «authorization to use.» Here too, it is very important that the distribution area be clear, precise and consistent throughout the document. A lawyer can help you develop the language that specifies what is assigned. Curious about the history of patent granting? Look at the specific data here! In the United States, patent orders can be registered with the USPTO. This can be done in the U.S. Patent Office`s Recordation Branch. Although this can be done online (and at no cost if the execution is carried out electronically) via the Electronic PatentIng System (EPAS), it should be noted that all patenting documents must be filed within three months of the date of the patent assignment. Enter the information for all patent and patent applications assigned. Describe the territory for which the allocation is made, for example.
B «United States,» «global,» etc. Since the assignment can only cover a portion of the applicable territory, it is very important that the description of the territory be clear and correct. A lawyer can help you describe the area accurately if you have any questions. Enter the name of the party awarding the patent or patent application. The USPTO patent patent database stores all patent registrations from August 1980 to the present day. The transfer file is updated by the USPTO, the last entry must be the current agent. However, the system does not verify the accuracy of the data, the current agent indicates and updates in a timely manner. It is best to check the accuracy using a third-party database. In principle, patenting is a legal possibility for an inventor to transfer ownership of a patent to a company.
