Maintenance of Records. We agree to keep and maintain adequate and current written records of all Inventions made
by me (solely or jointly with others). The records will be in the form of notes, sketches, drawings, and any other format that
may be specified by the Company. The records will be available to and remain the sole property of the Company at all times.
Patent and Copyright Registrations. We agree to assist the Company, or its designee, at the Company’s expense,
in every proper way to secure the Company’s rights in the Inventions and any copyrights, patents, mask work rights or other
