In Considering Patent Law Changes, Don’t Forget Impact on Universities.Washington State University (WSU) and the University of Washington (UW) recently released a report that provides valuable insight into how university R&D spurs industry innovation and economic growth and highlights the need for careful consideration by Congress when thinking about any changes to our patent system. Brian Pomper, the Executive Director of the Innovation Alliance, a group that represents several research organizations on policy issues, summarizes. I encourage you to take a look at this summary and the UW/WSU report. (BTW, this post doesn’t represent an endorsement of Innovation Alliance).
