Court's ruling should not undermine Bayh-Dole Act's purpose
from The Stanford Daily (editorial)
It should come as no surprise to readers that Stanford perennially ranks among the nation's top universities in patent quality, number of patents and patent revenue. Though patent revenue makes up only about 1.5 percent of Stanford's budget, it provides a critical incentive to innovate at both the departmental and individual levels. Unfortunately, Stanford's Copyright and Patent Agreement has proven itself incapable of defending the University's intellectual property, which has forced a drawn-out legal battle that has now reached the Supreme Court. The scope of the case has extended far beyond Stanford and will have significant implications for research universities nationwide.
