This is an agreement which effectively assigns a patent holder's rights in a pending patent to another party. A pending patent is where an inventor has filed a patent application, but the patent has not yet been granted. The agreement sets forth the specific terms and conditions of the assignment including the identities of the assignor and assignee, a description of the patent application and payment details. It is necessary to memorialize this transaction in written form and to record it with the United States Patent and Trademark Office in order to prevent any future litigation or disagreements. This document should be used by an individual or company located in Kansas that wishes to assign or acquire rights in an invention where the patent is still pending.
