A fair assignment is an assignment or transfer of equity rights. Intellectual property, including patents, copyrights and trademarks, may be transferred, but special conditions are linked to the transfer of patents and trademarks. In the United States, the assignment of a patent is governed by law, 35 U.S.C. Patent rights can be transferred by a «written instrument.» The patent title can also be transferred through other financial transactions, such as the merger. B or support, or through legal operations such as . B in an estate or bankruptcy proceeding. The assignment of a patent can be registered with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Although such registration is not required, an assignment is not registered within three (3) months or prior to a subsequent assignment to the USPTO, so the assignment of a subsequent agent is cancelled without unregistered prior assignment. Unless the contractual agreement is otherwise provided, the assignee is generally not assigned more rights than the assignee and the assignee may remain responsible for the performance of the contract vis-à-vis the original consideration. The speedmaker often delegates tasks in addition to the rights to the agent, but the assignee can ultimately remain responsible.
When the assignee proceeds with the assignment, it implicitly guarantees that the right of transfer is not subject to the defence. If the contract had a provision that rendered the assignment inoperative, the assignee could sue the assignee for breach of that tacit guarantee. Similarly, according to this theory, the agent could also take legal action if the assignee wrongly revoked the assignment. There are many requirements for a fair distribution of assets outside of the clear and unconditional intent to allocate.  These requirements are essential features of a legal assignment: absolute assignment (an unconditional assignment: conditions or part of a debt are not absolute) and the assignment must be signed in writing and by the assignee, especially for real estate.  Two other techniques to prevent the transfer of contracts are retraction clauses or clauses that create a subsequent condition. The first would give the other party the power to terminate the treaty in the event of a surrender; In such circumstances, the contract would automatically terminate. The responsibility of the assignee depends on the contract concluded at the time of the assignment.
