      Description

      Individuals may join the JCP in their own right, but are required to submit an Exhibit B in which their employer states that necessary IP rights will be granted.

      There are several problems with this approach. For example:

      • People change employers.
      • Exhibit B grants IP rights only for a specific JSR rather than the broader rights (for all JSRs) granted under Section 6.
      • Commercial entities can game the system by having their employees join as individuals.

      Clarify the Agent relationship (who is a "duly authorized representative of Employer?")

      Clarify the relationship between non-commercial organizations and their members.
