I declare that I am legally entitled to assign my entire right, title and interest in Developments to IBM and have not executed any Agreement with an accredited college or institute or University of which I am student or any other third party which interferes or prevents me from assigning my entire right, title and interest in Developments to IBM. In the event of a claim against IBM on this issue, I will defend IBM at my own expense, hold harmless and indemnify, including legal fees.
IBM and its licensees, successors, or assigns (direct or indirect) are not required to designate me as an author of any Development which is subject to this Clause 19, when it is distributed, publicly or otherwise, or to secure my permission to change or otherwise alter its integrity. I hereby waive and release, to the extent permitted by law, all rights in and to such designation and any rights I may have concerning modifications of such Developments.
I understand that any rights, waivers, releases, and assignments herein granted and made by me are freely assignable by IBM and are for the benefit of IBM and its subsidiaries, licensees, successors, and assigns.
In connection with any of the Developments assigned by this Clause 19, I will promptly disclose them in writing to the IBM Designated Expert/mentor assigned to me; and I will, on IBM's request, promptly execute a specific assignment of title to IBM or its designee, and do anything else reasonably necessary to enable IBM or such designee to secure a patent, copyright or other form of protection therefore in the United States and in other countries. In addition, I agree to promptly notify IBM in writing of any patent or patent application in which I am an inventor but which is not assigned by this Clause 19 and which discloses or claims any Development made, conceived, or written during my participation in the Project. I also agree to promptly notify IBM after the completion or termination of my participation in the Project , if I am contacted by anyone or any entity outside of IBM regarding any transaction, legal or governmental proceeding, litigation or other legal dispute concerning or relating to any of the Developments assigned by this Clause 19.
