Who can use this Patent Assignment?
Anyone acquiring or disposing of a patent needs a formal agreement to record a patent assignment or sale.
What is this Assignment for?
This patent assignment is a short but necessary formal agreement for the transfer of ownership of a patent. It sets out the terms on which the patent will be sold and contains warranties by the Seller with regard to ownership etc.
What are the main issues?
The buyer needs assurances that the seller not only owns the patent but also that there are no adverse claims or third-party rights and that the patent is appropriately registered. This means the seller will give a number of warranties and assurances.
The assignment/transfer of the patent gives the buyer the right to bring proceedings against any third-party who might be infringing the patent as well as the right to use this patent for registration elsewhere.
The seller will also provide extra documentaries support if required – e.g. the reregistration.
