Intellectual Property Legal Questions and Answers

Intellectual Property

Joint Agreement

California

Asked on Mar 21, 2023

Can a JV hold patents?

I am currently exploring the possibility of forming a joint venture (JV) with another company in my industry. As part of our business plan, we are considering the development of new products and technologies that may be patentable. However, I am unsure if a JV has the legal capacity to hold patents and protect our intellectual property rights. Therefore, I would like to seek advice from a lawyer on this matter.

Jane D.

Answered Apr 14, 2023

As a legal entity, a joint venture (JV) can own a patent. Given the temporary nature of JVs and the fact that there will be multiple owners of any patents, there is a complex mix of intellectual property (IP) ownership rights, dispute resolution, and enforcement issues that need to be agreed upon in order to properly protect everyone's intellectual property rights. Consideration will need to be given to what IP ownership and rights will look like during and after the JV and it may be easier to have both companies listed as the patent authors for inventions from the outset (versus naming the JV as the author). A joint IP agreement is the best solution to outline the rights of each party, the process for developing patentable technologies sufficient to be a patent author, filing and prosecuting patents, and future licensing and exploitation of the patent.

Independent Contractor Agreement

North Carolina

Asked on Nov 10, 2023

How to address IP rights in contractor agreements?

I am an entrepreneur who has recently started a business and is looking to hire independent contractors to help with my operations. I want to make sure that I have a clear understanding of the Intellectual Property rights associated with this agreement, so that I can ensure that any IP created by the contractors is legally protected.

N'kia N.

Answered Nov 14, 2023

A business has multiple options for protecting its intellectual property when working with an independent contractor. For a few examples: 1. A "work made for hire" agreement or clause can establish that the business is the owner of intellectual property that the independent contractor creates. 2. A confidentiality or non-disclosure agreement or clause can require the independent contractor to maintain the confidentiality (and limit or prohibit the independent contractor's disclosure) of the business' confidential or proprietary information. This can include the business' trade secrets (one type of intellectual property), as well as other information that might not rise to the level of trade secrets. 3. A non-competition agreement or clause can prohibit the independent contractor from using, or allowing someone else to use, the business' intellectual property to compete with the business. An independent contractor agreement with intellectual property considerations could implicate various federal and state-specific laws. A knowledgeable North Carolina attorney should be able to help you with an independent contractor agreement that complies with all the applicable laws. To ensure that you have a clear understanding of the intellectual property rights associated with your independent contractor agreement, you should consult with a knowledgeable attorney.

Employment Handbook

Florida

Asked on Jun 15, 2023

Employment handbook intellectual property policy?

I recently started a new job and was provided with an employee handbook that outlines company policies and procedures. I am concerned about the intellectual property policy outlined in the handbook, as it is not clear to me whether I have any ownership rights over the work I am creating for the company. I would like to understand my rights with respect to the intellectual property I am creating for the company, and what I can do to ensure that I am protected.

Daniel D.

Answered Jul 21, 2023

Without seeing the handbook it would be difficult to answer your question. Generally, what an employee creates for the Company is Company property, unless you have an agreement with them that states otherwise. It would also be helpful to know if you are an employee or independent contractor. Sometimes Company's give employee handbooks to independent contractors but the classification of whether you are an employee or independent contractor is important to this analysis.

Trademark Application

North Carolina

Asked on May 12, 2022

What are the fees for starting a nonprofit in North Carolina

I have been operating a ministry for helping prisoners that are released by way of podcast, but now we are growing and want to provide hygiene and other assistance for them as well. I have ran into issues with people wanting to donate but I am not operating as a nonprofit at this time. I am trying to accomplish this so I won't have to keep paying out of my pocket for the expenses.

Holly T.

Answered Jun 17, 2022

You can look to NCnonprofits.org for basic info, but you are a growing content creator. You need help planning growth, content, releases and waivers, sponsorships and a trademark if you intend to grow this Podcast. TLCtrademarks loves advising content creators.
