This episode of "The IP Podcast" looks at the actual ownership of an invention and who can claim the associated intellectual property rights, as it might not always be as straightforward as it seems.
In fact, it's important to note that the inventor of an invention and the owner of an invention can be different entities.
We also look at whether an employee has the rights to an invention, or the employer, how to identify and confirm ownership of an invention, and whether ownership rights are the same in each country.
