DAILY LAW TIPS

(Tip 152)
“Who Owns Creations, Discoveries and Inventions Made By An Employee/Agent?

While at work, employees, staff, workers and even agents make registrable intellectual properties(creations, discoveries and innovations) worth billions of Naira. The ownership of such intellectual properties belongs the employers and masters of such employees, workers and agents. Such ownerships are not negotiable or changeable by any agreement because it is provided by law to always belong only to employers. It is understandable because employees use the resources of their employers in making their discoveries and creations.

My authorities are sections 2(4) and 14(4) of the Patent and Designs Act.
