Background Intellectual Property (2019)
Intellectual property terms are a key component of university-industry partnerships. Research may lead to the discovery of new or foreground intellectual property but may also require access to or use of background intellectual property that is owned or controlled by the one of the partners or by a third party. The parties need to understand and address the possibilities of background intellectual property being needed for conduct of the research or for practice of resulting foreground intellectual property. This session will address various aspects of identification and ownership of, access to, control and use of background intellectual property along with practical considerations and related in a sponsored research agreement.
