"Provisional Patent Applications A Cost-Effective Approach for Protecting Innovation" by Nate Bailey TICUAWaller Legal Notes 

October, 2016 - Nate Bailey

Institutions of Higher Education serve a key role in fostering new ideas and spurring innovation. Recognizing the value of such innovation, the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 permits universities to own patents directed to the technologies they develop. While some large research institutions pursue patents to protect their inventions, many colleges and universities forego patent protection based on the perception that patent applications are cost-prohibitive. http://www.ticua.org/meetings_resources/sm_files/October%20NDedits_TICUA%20September%20eNews%20Provisional%20Patents%20483045758519%20v1%20003.pdf
