2 Intellectual Property
For intellectual property, firmum makes a distintiction between project property and general property. Project property is that intellectual property that is directly related to a given project, and that can only be used for that project, or for very similar projects. General property, on the other hand, is intellectual property that can also be used outside the project and in other sectors. firmum transfers any project property rights to its client. Should these lead to any patents, then firmum will receive 30% of the market value as compensation. firmum retains all rights to general property developed by it, and will grant its client a project/product specific license to use that property. This license will be non-revocable, and perpertual, once the client has paid in full.
