: Hi folks,
: Now I am looking at leaving the company and want to develop this system further and possibly market it to similar construction firms for a Project Management tool. I have been told that since (1) it was "improved" on company equipment and (2) that I gave it freely to others to use that I no longer own the Intellectual Property Rights for this system - my company does. Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated.
Dear Mr. Andrews,
Without taking professional responsibility, from what you say you have been misinformed, unless there are writings signed by you to effect the tranfer of your rights.
