Patent Ownership Divisible During Marriage Dissolution

5/11/2013 - Patent ownership can be divided during marriage dissolution. A Florida court found that a patent issued to Mr. Taylor during marriage to Mrs. Taylor was a marital asset that was divided during a Divorce Settlement. Because Mrs. Taylor obtained legal title to the patent, Mr. Taylor had no standing to sue for infringement under the patent because Mrs. Taylor refused to participate in the suit (all co-owners must be joined as co-plaintiffs).
