Intellectual Property News

On Friday, Oct. 17 the Intellectual Property Section will host a unique and valuable CLE: University-Industry Partnering in IP Creation and Commercialization. Presenters include the Vice President of Technology Commercialization, Indiana University Research & Technology Corporation (IURTC), and the Director of IP Disclosure Management & Protection, Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization (POTC).

These organizations, IURTC and POTC, are responsible for licensing technology, medical and other inventions by Purdue and IU professors to businesses across the country and internationally. They will share their perspective on licensing generally and the ways that university licenses differ from more typical business-to-business licenses. Sample licenses used by the IURTC and by POTC will be included in the seminar materials.

The scope of the seminar extends beyond university licensing, however. This CLE will include a discussion of the Bayh-Dole Act, which generally affects ownership and licensing of intellectual property arising from federal government-funded research. Bayh-Dole obligations transfer to the assignee of IP developed under any contract governed by Bayh-Dole, not just licenses. Attendees will learn about Bayh-Dole Act requirements and how to handle them whether as licensee, co-developer or assignee.

We are fortunate to have presenters from both IURTC and POTC here to share their insights. The luncheon following the event (included at no charge) will give attendees the opportunity to interface directly with all of the presenters.
