His name is on a bunch of other patents all assigned by Louis Renault. If my understanding of how patents work

Louis Renault is the holder of the patent but has assigned his rights to another party, in this case Ernest Fuchs.

We don't know what the contractural arrangement between Renault and Fuchs was but it may be that the patents were

assigned so that any disputes can be handled external to Renault's business. At a guess Ernest Fuchs may have been

a legal representative. Wonder if Tanker and the people over at https://forum.pages14-18.com/ know?

Thanks Charlie. I don't know how patents work, but this seems to be signed by Somebody, Goldsborough, and O'Neill - Attorneys, with Fuchs as the inventor. My thoughts were also of Tanker. J'attends.

Bonjour James and Charlie,

 Ernest Fuchs was, before 1914, until 1923, private secretary from Louis Renault (and also his friend).

The main enginer, for Renault FT programm was Rodolphe Ernst-Metzmaier, and Ernest Fuchs has probably

invented certain new and useful improvements in driving-chains.

This patent is from 1920 and  Ernest Fuchs was only the assignor

(see at the end of this patent)

 

" A patent assignment is an agreement where one entity (the “assignor”) transfers all or part of their right, title and interest in a patent or application to another entity (the “assignee”).

In simpler terms, the assignee receives the original owner's interest and gains the exclusive rights to pursue patent protection (through filing and prosecuting patent applications), 

and also to license and enforce the patent.

Ideally, your business should own its patents if it wants to enjoy the benefits of the patent rights. But under U.S. law, only an inventor or an assignee can own a patent, 

and businesses cannot be listed as an inventor. Accordingly, patent assignment is the legal mechanism that transfers ownership from the inventor to your business. "

 

Très bonne journée - Michel
