Patent Assignment Agreement

Persons who wish to assign a patent should record the terms of their agreement in detailed written contract, because the law provides only limited protection for this type of transaction.

A patent licence agreement and patent assignment agreement may appear to be similar. The main difference between the two agreements is under a license agreement, the patent holder remains the owner of the invention and only grants a right to use the patent. In practice, the distinction means that the assignee is entitled to sue a third party for patent infringement, whereas a licensee cannot.

Patent Assignment Agreement

We recommend using this template for the purpose of transfering all of the assignor's rights in the patent to an assignee.

When a party wishes to acquire all the rights to an invention, the patent holder can either grant an exclusive license to the interested party (see our licence to use template H04200 or manufacturing licence template H04300), or assign the patent to that person.

Because an exclusive license grants a personal right to the property in question, rather than a right of ownership, certain issues may be difficult to resolve and could prevent the parties from entering into their licence agreement.
