Since a patent is personal property, it can be sold to others with a written agreement drafted by a patent attorney called a patent assignment. A patent assignment can transfer the entire interest or a partial interest in a patent. The person or company to whom a patent assignment is issued then has the same rights and protections as the original patent owner.
