Contract clause on protection of intellectual property rights

Author: Susan Singleton

When to use this model intellectual property rights contract clause

Use this model contract clause in an employment contract to restate the law on intellectual property rights. It will be particularly useful where, for example, employees design software programs or perform development work in laboratories. If the segment of the clause giving a power of attorney is used, the agreement must be executed as a deed.
