General Instructions


Patent Application Assignment Agreement

   This kit includes tools and guidelines for preparing an assignment of a U.K. patent application.

   A patent is a legal device that protects inventors, prohibiting other persons from producing or profiting from their inventions for a defined period of time.  While the patent owner holds certain exclusive rights to make and market the invention, the owner is entitled to transfer those rights to another party by way of an assignment, and may even transfer its rights to the patent application, before the application is submitted and/or approved by the U.K. Intellectual Property Office.

   Included in this kit is a sample agreement setting forth the terms of an assignment of a patent application, as well as a basic introduction to patent law.








General Information
Patent Application Assignment Agreement

A patent is a legal device that protects an inventor and his invention.  The patent prohibits other persons or entities from using or profiting from that invention for a specific period of time, during which the inventor has the exclusive right to exploit the invention.

In order to qualify for a patent, the invention must be new, it must involve an inventive step and it should be capable of industrial application.  Further, the material to be patented must be novel and non-obvious.

In addition to having the right to transfer ones interest in patent, inventors also have the right to transfer their rights in the patent application itself.  When the application is validly assigned and recorded with the Intellectual Property Office, the patent will be issued to the assignee upon approval of the application.

Recordation with the Intellectual Property Office also serves to protect the assignee against good faith purchasers who may attempt to take ownership of the patent subsequent to the assignee.  

If you do choose to record your patent assignment with the U.K. Intellectual Property Office, you should complete and submit form 21/77 to the patent office (Form available on the U.K. Patent office website www.patent.gov.uk). This form 21/77 can be used for registering both patent assignments and licences. No fee is payable for registration of assignments.
