I am a first time patent co-author.
The patent assignment contains the following:
"the assignors hereby covenant with the Assignee that they shall, at the cost of the Assignee, execute all further documents and do all such things that may be requested by the Assignee and as are necessary for the purpose of enabling the Assignee to make application in its own name in any country of the world for letters patent, design registration and/or similar protection in respect of the said Invention."
Two things make me uncomfortable, firstly I seem to be committing to an unlimited obligation to assist the company.
Secondly, "do all such things" seems crazy. Am I supposed to assist with bribery in a country where such a practice is common or worse assassination?
Does the above stipulation seem normal?
