Commentary: In Defense of Patents and Licensing: Why the Newest
Attack is Bogus

IPWatchdog
Columnist Joseph Allen writes: "No one should have been surprised when The Washington Post ran 'Here's why patents are innovation's worst enemy' by Vivek Wadhwa. It was only a matter of time before universities standing up to the patent reform behemoth drew retribution. Last year they were attacked as patent trolls. Now we hear that patents and licensing are irrelevant or even harmful to innovation. While the attack hits a larger target, a prime focus is discrediting university technology transfer before the patent reform debate kicks into high gear."

Better World Project Featured Story
AUTM
At many veterinary and medical schools, students still practice suturing techniques on orange peels, pig feet or fabric. To improve that educational experience, surgeons at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science at Colorado State University developed a multilayer silicone suture pad that mimics live tissue — and founded a company called SurgiReal. Read more in "Veterinary Surgeons Make Suture Training More Like the Real Thing."

Then take a minute to enter a technology from your institution for a chance to be one of the Featured Stories. Or, create a customized report of the stories from your institution that may be already in the database.
