*** The commercial property of an enterprise is what a legal entity owns… In the absence of a specific mandating agreement recognizing that the employees of an enterprise are
the authors of Works of the Mind and/or a cession contract or license establishing the authorship of an invention or Work of the Mind, the enterprise can only register commercial rights on its
