The enactment of Bayh-Dole, an inside perspective
Dec. 2, 2010 issue:
The fact that the Bayh-Dole Act passed was amazing. That it passed in a lame duck session of Congress with its principal author defeated, the U.S. Senate changing hands, and a sitting president thrown out, was a miracle. Even then success was not assured. The bureaucracy was waiting to undermine the implementing regulations. Yet the new law survived, strengthening the economy while improving public health and well-being. Success depended on slipping through a narrow window of opportunity.
