Hire & Fire employment law podcast – Intellectual property created during the course of employment

Employers often hire employees to develop new products, create new techniques or improve processes. But the creation of intellectual property during the course of employment does not automatically grant the employer exclusive ownership of the intellectual property created.

In this episode of Hire & Fire, Erik Ejdesjö, together with John Park, Senior Associate and a specialist in Intellectual Property Rights, discuss who owns the intellectual property created by an employee during the course of their employment, and what further steps an employer should take in order to effectively secure the transfer of such intellectual property rights from its employees.
