INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY AND TECHNOLOGY LICENSING
The Intellectual Property Management Office (IPMO) plays a significant role in developing RIT as an Innovation University. IPMO facilitates all aspects of Intellectual Property (IP) management and Technology Commercialization. It begins with identification of intellectual property (IP), usually patentable ideas and copyrighted software, capturing the IP with patents, and monetizing the IP through technology transfer agreements such as license agreements. Licensing agreements are written with existing or startup organizations who are to make and sell products for end users in the commercial or government market place. The IPMO, in conjunction with RIT’s Office of Legal Affairs, serves as a resource to faculty, staff and students on IP matters. Services include: 1) outreach and training in IP, technology transfer, and licensing; 2) protection and management of IP (patents, copyright, trademarks); 3) marketability assessments on inventions and authored works to determine market potential; 4) negotiating and administering licensing agreements and 5) implementation of the RIT Licensing Policy C3.0.
