Ownership is more than just owning something.
When I was an army officer, we assigned drivers to particular vehicles. Why? Drivers take pride in their vehicles and maintain them better when they take “ownership”. It was enough to assign the vehicle to the driver. Downtime was reduced.
Ownership is a mindset.
If you truly OWN your iP, others will respect it more. So, take the time to own your iP.
It doesn’t take that much time or money. Just make sure the agreements necessary to transfer rights in iP to your company are available and used.
