Ownership of Intellectual Property-A Refresher
Continuing Legal Education
Intellectual Property (IP) includes inventions, artistic works, literary works, and descriptive signs, words, symbols or names used in commerce. Ownership of IP confers rights to the owner. Because IP is generally created by individuals, the use of IP by others, including the individual's employer, requires a transfer of rights in the form of assignment or license.
This program covers the basics of ownership of IP, especially in employment situations or collaboration between business partners. The basic legal foundations of copyright, trademark and patent ownership will be discussed. Additionally, an examination of the application of these ownership concepts to an online presence and social media will be discussed.
