Intellectual Property Terminology

Employment, non-disclosure, technology transfer, material transfer agreements, invention disclosure forms and assignments all contain complex language and are an inevitable part of the university researcher's way of life. However, attorneys for the university developed these documents with the best interests of the institution in mind, not the researcher. Therefore, it is imperative to be educated in the terminology and phrasing used throughout the documentation.
