Let’s say company A hires an employee from company B. Unbeknownst to company A, the employee steals IP when they leave company B and incorporates it in their work for company A. If later company A becomes aware of the actions of the employee and that some of their own IP is based off of company B’s IP, are they required to inform company B of the employee’s actions?
Ex: An employee brings a design model from their previous employer and includes it in work for their new employer. A coworker discovers the true origin of the cad model and informs a supervisor. At this point the stolen cad model has been used to build off of and the employer has profited from the stolen IP. What is the new employer required to do if anything?
