Pearson (P) was hired to repair rail cars for the Metro North Commuter Railroad (D). The job was boring so P decided to spend part of his work days figuring out a better way

to install brake tread units on trains. After only two business days, P had developed a device that worked well. Eager to get a job promotion, P proudly handed the device over to his surprised supervisor, and then returned to the work of repairing rail cars. D started using the unit that P had made and sent P’s plans to a company that made similar devices, ordering six more units. Nine months later, P got into a spat with his supervisor and quit. If P obtains a patent on the device, D will retain a free, exclusive license to use the device. (a) True(b) False
