Universities across the country are celebrating today the 40th anniversary of the Patent and Trademark Amendments Act of 1980, better known as the “Bayh-Dole Act” after its sponsors. The Bayh-Dole was historic because it created a uniform federal intellectual property policy for inventions created at universities and other federally-funded institutions. This allows universities to own the intellectual property covering their research, which enables them to develop and commercialize their discoveries in order to bring them to the public.
