when do i disclose
When Do I Disclose?
  • Don’t worry about whether or

not you have an “Invention.”

  • Disclose anything that you think may be a great research development, or just cool research, via the Research Disclosure Form.
  • If the form is confusing, call the OTD
    • We’ll help you fill it out!
what s the process
What’s the Process
  • Fill Out a Research Disclosure
    • Turn in to OTD
    • Confirmation of receipt within a few days via email
    • Notification of case manager within a week
    • Within a few weeks you will hear from the case manager about: 1) either a meeting to get more details or 2) a communication with initial search results
    • Evaluation on Patentability, Market, and Business Sense in moving forward is made by case manager
    • Within 120 days, notification of status:
      • ELECTED, NONELECTED, or PENDING
presenting and publishing
Presenting and Publishing…
  • Is Your Right!
  • OTD files a patent before disclosure when both:
    • Time allows
    • It is economically viable to do so
  • The more lead time you can give us, the more informed decision we can make about whether or not to file a patent prior to disclosure
    • Talk to the OTD when you have a draft, before it is accepted for publication (or you are on the plane headed to give your talk).
    • One Year from Public Disclosure to protect in U.S.
    • Foreign Rights lost IMMEDIATELY
what do you get when we license
What do you getwhen we License?
  • When Licensed
    • Patent and Overhead expenses reimbursed 1st
      • We try and recoup the patent costs separately in the license whenever possible
    • Of the remaining Net $:
      • 50% to the Inventor(s) -- No Cap!
      • 12.5% to Inventor(s) Department(s) for Research
      • 12.5% to Inventor(s) College(s) for Research
      • 25% retained by VPR for Research
      • If Inventors choose to put all of their share back into research, UofL will put an additional 40% of the net $ in up to $300k
