Under German law, there is no uniform statutory rule regarding joint ownership of Intellectual Property (IP) rights. Article 8 of the German Copyright Act (UrhG) addresses this issue in some detail, whereas in the case of patents, trademarks and other industrial property rights, the related provisions are restricted to simply acknowledging the mere possibility of joint ownerships, leaving open details and legal consequences.
