Assignment of intellectual property checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs and that everyone involved agrees with the assignment of intellectual property. Remember that if you have any questions you can easily Ask a lawyer.

Signing online

  1. You can select to sign online using Rocket Lawyer.

Signing in print

  1. Print a copy for each party to the assignment of intellectual property.

  2. If you refer to any attached materials in the schedules, remember to attach them to the agreement.

  3. Each party must sign and date both copies.

  4. The date of the contract is the date on which the parties signed, if that was the same day. If they signed on different days, then it is the day when the last person signed.

Each party should keep their own original signed agreement.

A copy of the assignment of intellectual property will also be stored under ‘My Documents’ in your Rocket Lawyer account.

Remember that a transfer of registered IPR will need to be registered with the appropriate authorities.  Ask a lawyer if you need help with this.
