>The IP for all of this, legally speaking, sits primarily with GloBee and xiphon (on the backend), and with the Core Team (on the front-end), due to the fact that anything you create during your employment is, by default, owned by that entity. Devin was employed by GloBee, and GloBee allowed him to work on the CCS, so the IP rests with them. The same is true for Diego.
>The same is true for Diego (because he was employed by the Core Team).
How does the Core Team “entity” own IP if it’s not a legal entity? Is the Core Team a legal entity? Is it legally a corporation or a partnership in some jurisdiction? Sorry if this information is available somewhere but it’s not readily apparent to me.
Assuming there is no Core Team legal entity/corporation – does each member of the Core Team own a share of the IP? When someone leaves core team do they retain ownership of share of IP?
Also, this makes it seem like rehrar had a formal employment contract also – who was his “employer” if Core Team is not a legal entity/corporation with its own accounts?
