1308 Ownership in Vessel Designs

 

The intellectual property right in a vessel design vests in one of the following:

 

• The designer;

 

• The designer’s legal representative(s), if the designer is deceased or legally incapacitated;

 

• If the design was made within the regular scope of the designer’s employment, the employer for whom the designer created the design; or

 

• A person to whom the rights of the designer or of such employer have been transferred.

 

The person in whom the property right vests is considered the owner of the design. 17 U.S.C. § 1320 (A).
