Louis Wu, a private intellectual property attorney, will speak about technology transfer, IP, and recent changes in patent law.


The Bayh-Dole Act requires SFSU and other institutions that receive federal grants post an Intellectual Property Policy to protect ownership of inventions resulting
from such funding.  This talk will cover the basics of intellectual property (IP) matters such as patents and copyrights.  In particular, the talk will cover issues of particular interest to public research institutions such as the encouragement of IP development, reasonableness and fairness, and disclosure and transparency.
