MIT: Stanford v. Roche "Could Have Adverse Impact on Tech Transfer"

April 27, 2010
Link to MIT News article ("MIT to file amicus brief in intellectual-property case"):
The brief argues that the case threatens to undermine the Bayh-Dole Act, a federal law that has played a central role in America's system of innovation. Enacted in 1980 as an amendment to the Patent Act, Bayh-Dole expanded and accelerated the transformation of ideas in the lab into the products, jobs and revenues of commercial enterprise.
