How do I designate ownership of a patent? 2 Answers as of April 29, 2011
Is there boilerplate language that can be used in an Operating Agreement for an LLC that designates ownership of a patent to the LLC when the patent is developed by an LLC member?

I would not rely on boilerplate terms to address such a key issue. Consult an attorney. It may be necessary that each member consult their own attorney, to safeguard their rights.

There is boilerplate language, but knowing which language to use requires a legal analysis of the facts related to your situation. When was the invention invented, what is the scope of the inventors roles and obligation of the company, what resources were used to invent the invention. Lots of details are required in order to figure out which "boilerplate language" to use. If you have any additional questions let me know.
