Employee Inventions Act

In Germany, there is a special law called the Employee Invention Act, which is known as the Arbeitnehmererfindergesetz (ArbEG). It regulates the relationship between employer and employee in the case of inventions. The law standardises the transfer of rights to an invention from the employee to the employer, as well as the rules for remuneration for inventions and the obligations that arise when they are used in the context of an employment relationship.
