One recurrent issue faced in university tech transfer offices is when do certain activities by faculty inventors impact U.S. and foreign patent rights. This webinar will take an in-depth look at what type of disclosures qualify as “printed publications” under 35 U.S.C. § 102. We will dispel common misconceptions regarding when a disclosure rises to the level of a printed publication, which will aid technology transfer professionals in their decision-making process of whether to go forward with pursuing domestic or foreign patent protection on university inventions.
