Important revisions to the Bayh-Dole Act have now taken effect, and it’s critical for TTOs to ensure their compliance procedures are addressing the new rules. TTO leaders agree the changes will significantly increase the amount of time needed to assure full compliance — and some universities are hiring additional staff to handle the heavier load.

From changes in the abandonment and conversion processes to the impact on internal systems and procedure as well as communications with licensees, the changes represent a significant challenge.  But it’s a challenge that can be met and even bring improvements to TTO operations if handled with a strong training component and a clear, detailed operational plan.

To help TTOs ensure a smooth transition and full compliance, Tech Transfer Central’s Distance Learning Division has secured an expert team from law firm Amster, Rothstein & Ebenstein LLP to lead this one-hour webinar:

As Co-Chair of the Amicus Committee of the New York Intellectual Property Law Association, Mr. Macedo has been principal counsel or additional counsel on amicus briefs in some of the leading patent cases of recent years, including Cuozzo, Highmark and Octane, Kimble v. MarvelMayo v. Prometheus, Association of Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics Inc., CLS Bank Int’l v.
