Disclose an Invention
After disclosing your intellectual property in the Inventor Portal, the Technology Transfer Services team will evaluate your disclosure based on market, patent and commercial potential and work with you on possible commercial development. If any revenue is generated from commercial successes, revenue is shared between the creator and USU.
- Patent inventions: Processes, devices, machines and compositions of matter
- Copyright material: Books, software, music and art
- Trademarks: Words and symbols associated with goods or services (company names, logos, taglines)
- Trade secrets: Inventions are kept secret instead of patented
