Intellectual Property

 

Q: How is the Intellectual Property (IP) being split between the two companies? How do I find out how certain IP will be assigned?

 

A: In general, IP needed to perform your job is being split according to the focus area of the two companies—manufacturing IP going with The Foundry Company, design IP with AMD, with some IP being shared. Contact your manager if you have specific questions.

 

Q: What is the process for handling IP that is generally shared between the two companies?

 

A: IP that is shared between the two companies will generally be jointly owned and usable by both AMD and The Foundry Company. There are exceptions to this general rule, however, so please contact your manager or Law Department contact to discuss any questions you may have regarding shared IP.

 

Q: How do we handle IP created between now and close?

 

A: Between now and the close of this transaction, please continue to work as you have before. Invention Disclosure forms may be found here.

 

Q: Will The Foundry Company share IP with third parties? If yes, are there any restrictions on the IP that they can share?

 

A: As ownership of IP is being assigned to each company, the company that owns the IP will generally have full rights to it, including the right to share that IP with third parties. However, in some cases there will be restrictions to the sharing of that IP. Please contact your manager or Law Department contact to discuss any questions you may have regarding shared IP.

Each company will likely also have some access to the other’s IP under NDAs. It is expected that employees will follow good practice in protecting both their company’s IP, as well as any IP they are exposed to under NDA.
