A document that transfers ownership of a patent application from the inventors to another entity
A Patent Application Assignment is a legal document that transfers ownership of a patent application from one party to another. It is typically used when an inventor assigns their rights to the patent application to a company or individual who will then have the right to file and prosecute the patent application. The assignment must be in writing and signed by the inventor or inventors, and should include details such as the patent application number and the specific rights being assigned. The patent application assignment is an important document that ensures that the proper party has ownership of the patent application and can take legal action to protect their rights.
