Innovations serve everyone,
but your ideas should remain your ideas.

The law regarding employee inventions is specific to Germany and regulates rights and obligations between employers and employees in the case of employee inventions. Accordingly, the employer has the right to exploit inventions by his employees, in particular to register them as patents.

In return, the employee is entitled to appropriate compensation. For companies, this can be an administrative burden, but it can also provide an incentive for employees to drive innovation.
