Abstract

This chapter addresses the question of who is entitled to the patent and who will own it. Patent law operates a ‘first to file’ system and the presumption is that the person filing the application is entitled to the patent. Section 7 of the UK Patents Act 1977 nevertheless brings the inventor into the picture as the person who is logically entitled to the patent. There is also room for contractual transactions in this area.
