I hereby acknowledge that my submission is governed by my agreement as an employee of The Coca-Cola Company, a Delaware corporation, or any direct or indirect subsidiary or affiliate of The Coca-Cola Company, including specifically its joint ventures, (such employer for the purposes of this Agreement being hereinafter referred to as "the Company") as well as this Agreement.
In consideration of my employment, or my continued employment as the case may be, I have agreed and hereby restate my agreement that I agree to and do hereby assign to the Company, without charge, all my right, title and interest in and to any and all inventions and discoveries that I may make, solely or jointly with others, while in the employ of the Company and that relate to or are useful or may be useful in connection with the business of the Company or were made using any resources of the Company, and all my right, title and interest in and to any and all applications for patents anywhere in the world based on such invention or discovery, including any continuations, divisions, reissues, extensions, revivals or the like of such patents and all patent rights issuing on the same.
Upon request of the Company, whether during or subsequent to this employment, I shall execute and deliver any instruments or take any actions as may be deemed by the Company necessary or proper to vest all my right, title and interest in and to said inventions, discoveries, applications and patents in the Company and to secure or maintain the same. All necessary and proper expenses in connection with the foregoing shall be borne by the Company, and if services in connection therewith are performed at the Company's request after termination of employment, the Company will pay reasonable compensation for such services.
Any inventions and discoveries relating to the Company's business made by me within one year after termination of my employment with the Company shall be deemed to be within this provision, unless I can prove that the same were conceived and made following said termination and such conception or invention is not based upon or related to any Trade Secret, as defined herein, received pursuant to my employment with the Company.
Further, I hereby assign to the Company, without charge, all my right, title and interest in and to all original works of authorship in any tangible form, prepared by me, solely or jointly with others. In addition, the Company and I hereby agree that any such original work of authorship that qualifies as a "work made for hire" under the U.S. copyright laws shall be a "work made for hire" and shall be owned by the Company.
I acknowledge and agree that in the event I breach, I threaten in any way to breach, or it is inevitable that I will breach, any of the provisions of this Agreement, damages shall be an inadequate remedy and the Company shall be entitled, without bond, to injunctive or other equitable relief. The Company's rights in this respect are in addition to all rights otherwise available at law or in equity.
In the event that any provision of this Agreement is found invalid or unenforceable by a court of law or other appropriate authority, the invalidity or unenforceability of such provision shall not affect the other provisions of this Agreement, which shall remain in full force and effect.
This Agreement shall inure to the benefit of the Company, successors and assigns or nominees of the Company, and I specifically agree to execute any and all documents considered convenient or necessary to assign transfer, sustain and maintain inventions, discoveries, copyrightable material, applications and patents, both in this and foreign countries, to and on behalf of the Company.
