SIERRA HERRERO, Alfredo. INVENTORS WORKERS: OWNERSHIP OF THEIR CREATIONS AND COMPESATIONS. RDUCN [online]. 2011, vol.18, n.2, pp. 151-188. ISSN 0718-9753. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-97532011000200007.
The development of inventions is recognized as a key element in technical and economic progress. Mostly, they are developed within companies or entities that entrust their employees with such tasks. The main parties therein are, thus, the parties of a work relationship, i.e. employer and employee. It is a subject in which both interests must be correctly balanced, as an inadequate treatment regarding either one of them, may produce a widespread disincentive to research.
