What You Should Know About Intellectual Property in Pleasant Grove, Utah

Intellectual property” is an umbrella term that covers four main categories:

  • Patents: These documents safeguard concepts and the inventions that stem from those ideas.
  • Trademarks: Words, phrases, symbols, designs, or a combination of these things used to identify your goods or services, such as a company’s name or logo, can be protected by trademark.
  • Copyrights: Creative works and forms of expression, such as artworks, musical pieces, and literature, can be secured by copyright.
  • Trade Secrets: Commercial secrets that provide an owner with a competitive advantage.

However, in Utah, “intellectual property” is defined in the Utah Employment Inventions Act as:

“any and all patents, trade secrets, know-how, technology, confidential information, ideas, copyrights, trademarks, and service marks and any and all rights, applications, and registrations relating to them.”

Under this state law, any agreement between an employee and their employer is not enforceable for an invention that was designed by the employee entirely on their own time and was not an employment invention.

In some instances, an arrangement may exist between an employee and their employer, requiring them to assign or license (or at least offer to assign or license) their employer any or all of their rights to an employment invention.
