3. Intellectual Property Obligations. I understand that I am expected, through my position with the Company, to use my creative and inventive capacities to assist the Company. I agree that during my employment I will promptly disclose to the Company any Intellectual Property that I create, conceive, or contribute to. Intellectual Property means any item that would qualify as an Invention or Copyrightable Work. Copyrightable Works means all original works of authorship that I prepare, alone or with others, within the scope of my employment with Company or that relate to a line of business that Company is engaged in or may reasonably be anticipated to engage in, including, but not limited to, reports, computer programs, mask works, drawings, designs, documentation and publications. Inventions means all intellectual property, inventions, designs, discoveries, innovations, ideas, know-how and/or improvements, whether patentable or not, and whether made by me alone or jointly with others, which (a) relate to the existing or foreseeable business interests of Company, (b) relate to Companys actual or anticipated research or development, (c) were developed or discovered with the assistance of Company tools, equipment, personnel or other resources, or (d) are suggested by, related to or results from any task assigned to me, Confidential Information provided to me, or work performed by me for or on behalf of the Company.
3.1 Ownership of Intellectual Property. I agree that all Inventions are and will remain the sole and exclusive property of Company. I do hereby grant and assign all of my right(s), title and interest in and to any and all Inventions, inclusive of all moral rights and rights of control of any kind, to the Company. I recognize that all Copyrightable Works shall to the fullest extent permissible be considered works made for hire in the United States as defined in the U.S. Copyright Laws and in any other country adhering to the works made for hire or similar notion. All such Copyrightable Works shall from the time of creation be owned solely and exclusively by Company throughout the world. If any Copyrightable Works or portion thereof shall not be legally qualified as a work made for hire in the United States or elsewhere, or shall subsequently be held to not be a work made for hire, I do hereby grant and assign all of my right(s) (inclusive of all moral rights and rights of control of any kind), title and interest in and to any and all Copyrightable Works, and all registered and applied for copyrights therein, to the Company.
3.2 Cooperation Obligation. When requested to do so by Company, either during or subsequent to my employment with Company, I will (a) execute all documents requested by Company for the vesting in Company of the entire right, title and interest in and to the Inventions, Confidential Information and Copyrightable Works, and all patent application filed and issuing on the Inventions; (b) execute all documents requested by Company for filing and obtaining of patents or copyrights; and (c) provide assistance that Company reasonably requires to protect its right, title and interest in the Inventions, Confidential Information and Copyrightable Works, including, but not limited to, providing declarations and testifying in administrative and legal proceedings with regard to Inventions, Confidential Information and Copyrightable Works. The Company shall have full control over all applications for patents or other legal protection of these Inventions and Copyrightable Works. The Company is not obligated to use or exploit these Inventions or Copyrightable Works or attribute them to me. In the event that there is any invention, copyrightable work, idea, discovery, development, or other intellectual property that I own or in which I have an interest that is not owned by the Company pursuant to the above terms, and such intellectual property is incorporated into any product or service of the Company, then I hereby grant to the Company and its assigns a nonexclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, fully paid-up, royalty-free, worldwide license to any such item that is so incorporated, including all rights to make, use, sell, reproduce, display, modify, or distribute the item.
