On September 28, 2011, I will be participating in an American Bar Association webinar to discuss the impact of the Supreme Court’s June, 2011, decision in Stanford v. Roche. In Stanford v. Roche, the Supreme Court upheld a Federal Circuit decision finding that under the Bayh-Dole Act, a university does not automatically receive title to an invention, even where the invention was conceived or first reduced to practice in the performance of work under a federal funding agreement. Some believe that the Supreme Court’s decision has muddied the waters regarding how government contractors deal with their employee-inventors. The webinar panelists will discuss the Bayh-Dole Act, the Supreme Court’s decision, and how Stanford v. Roche impacts government contractors.
