Who owns an invention made on an employee's own time, without use of UL Lafayette facilities or funds, and that is in an area or field that has nothing to do with his/her UL Lafayette position?

In this situation, the inventor will usually own the invention. The key is that the invention has nothing to do with his or her UL Lafayette position.
