Choosing the Right Open Source License for Your Software

This webinar will be recorded on November 12, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
Technology transfer offices are seeing more and more software disclosures. Software developed in research organizations often includes components downloaded from the Internet that include their own license terms and obligations. Meanwhile, researchers often want to release their software under an open source license while pursuing their commercialization interests. How does a licensing professional navigate the multitude of available open source licenses to select the appropriate license? What are the implications of releasing software with an MIT license versus Apache? Will the release of software under an open source license impact its patent filing? Is it possible to build a successful start-up using software released under an open source license? These are just some of the questions we'll tackle.

How a Crowd Sourcing Platform Can Help You Build Strong Team

This webinar will be recorded on September 17, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
North by Northwest (NxNW) is an £8 million expansion of the successful UK-based Innovation to Commercialization of University Research (ICURe) pilot program that supports getting commercially-promising faculty to market quickly. During this pilot, we identified "business mentors" to help accelerate commercialization and developed a way to engage and incentivize these mentors to support "deal" activity. In order to make the effort scalable, we deployed an online crowd-sourced platform and encouraged our business mentors to follow license-based milestone principles. In this webinar, we will share our experiences identifying external, domain-specific "business mentors" and in building stronger teams.

Why Settle? Networking Your Way to Greater Innovation

This webinar will be recorded on September 5, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
U.S-based tech transfer offices have supported the contribution of more than $591 billion to the gross domestic product since 1996-but could it have been more? Typical academic commercialization pathways sometimes miss underrepresented entrepreneurs, leaving research in the lab and preventing consumers from accessing valuable science and technology. Tech transfer officers help creative, entrepreneurial scientists achieve their goals by developing effective networks. Networks help us access ideas, recruitment sources, partnerships, mentoring opportunities, novel perspectives, capital, and the latest innovations. In this webinar, we will cover the key characteristics of effective networks and provide strategies for both assessing and growing your network. Funded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation, the nation's leader in entrepreneurship innovation, S2M has been used to develop and test promising practices for inclusive decision-making, advancing STEM founders from groups that have often been overlooked by entrepreneurial support.

Drug Repurposing from a University Perspective

This webinar will be recorded on June 19, 2019 and will be available within 30 days of the live event. You may pre-order the webinar now.
The repurposing of therapies for alternative disease indications is an attractive approach that can save significant investments of time and money during drug development. It can also generate highly marketable technologies for the savvy university. Repurposed drugs are generally approved faster, are awarded market approval at a rate three times higher than new drug applications, and at half the cost associated with new drug applications. Academic researchers have successfully begun integrating repurposing into their grant applications from both federal and private donors. In this webinar, we will discuss these themes as well as what, from a university perspective, can lead to a successful program in licensing repurposed drug assets. Particular emphasis will placed on how to develop strong patent strategies for repurposed drug assets.

Talent to Technology: Is Entrepreneur Talent the New Patent


As the number of start-ups spun-out of universities increases, so does the rate at which university start-ups fail. Universities that don't find themselves ensconced in entrepreneurial talent-rich pools like Silicon Valley and New York City likely have a problem: the scope of their institution's research is broader than the immediately accessible talent pool of willing entrepreneurs ready to take management roles of start-ups. Further, a majority of their entrepreneurial faculty may not intend to take entrepreneurial leave or take on a full-time start-up executive management role. The answer lies in increasing access to would-be entrepreneurial executives and more acutely matching their experience with start-ups.

How New Supreme Court Rulings Impact Prior Art


In a unanimous decision on Helsinn v. Teva, the Court held that the sale of an invention to a third party, who is required to keep confidentiality, qualifies as prior art under the AIA. This ruling will affect post-AIA patent practice and is expected to have a major impact on prosecution, other court cases, and Patent Trial and Appeal Board proceedings. Join us to learn how it will affect you and pitfalls to avoid.

Foreign Filing Considerations & Strategies for Universities


For many universities, the decision whether to file for patent protection for an invention is multi-faceted and challenging. Not only can these filings be expensive, but many foreign countries have patentability and enforcement challenges that are different than those encountered in the United States. Additionally, drafting claims for the US does mean compliance with the rest of the world. In fact, there may be opportunities overseas for subject matter that are difficult to protect in the US. This webinar will examine the requirements for patenting inventions in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Europe and Japan and provide practical tips for universities to consider when making strategic filing decisions.
