Attorneys should never allow an unfettered transfer of IP or rights and obligations related thereto. Assigning a successor can be a two-way street with differing rights for each party, dependent upon whose IP is at issue, dependent upon whether rights are exclusive or nonexclusive, and dependent upon whether rights are public or confidential. This video reviews the assignment from an inventor/creator to a customer, and to a successor entity.
