Ask Patents is a question and answer site for people interested in improving and participating in the patent system. It's 100% free, no registration required.

A coinventor and I have filed and future filings as coinventors. We understand it's best protection for both of us to have a corp own the Patents rather than ourselves, with us owning the corporation. If this is such an established best practice I thought there should be an IP holding co corp template as to the type of corp, where to create it (for american inventors) and bylaws which outline basic concerns such as what happens in a buyout, distribution of profit from licensing, potential disagreements in selling IP, etc.
Many important concerns arise which need to be addressed. Are they all itemized somewhere so we can cover them all?
