Assignment of intellectual property

For use when you want someone to confirm in writing that certain intellectual property rights are owned by your business.

About the document:

This is a basic intellectual property assignment intended to be used to ensure that the recipient owns all the intellectual property rights in a particular work that has already been created by the assignor.  For example, it could be used to confirm the assignment:

  • by a software developer to a client of all intellectual property rights in a particular software program developed for that client; or
  • by an entrepreneur to their start-up company of all intellectual property rights in a particular product developed by the entrepreneur before the company was incorporated.
