University Intellectual Property Screening Committee (UIPSC)

UIPSC

A University Intellectual Property Screening Committee (UIPSC), appointed by the President and composed of members for the terms as set forth in the OSU Policy and Procedures No. 1-0202, act as an authority of first resort to decide whether the University has a proprietary interest in the disclosed intellectual property. All disclosures that TDC receives are referred to UIPSC for a determination of proprietary interests therein under the provisions of OSU’s IP Policy.

If UIPSC, with the concurrence of the Vice President for Research, determines that the university has a proprietary interest in the intellectual property under sections 3.02 or 3.03 of OSU Policy and Procedures No. 1-0202, the Committee notifies the inventor(s)/creator(s). In determining rights under this provision, the fact that the subject matter of the intellectual property is related to the individual's employment, appointment or association with the university and/or the use of university resources, facilities, equipment, materials, supplies, or services in creating or developing the intellectual property shall constitute prima facie evidence of the university's proprietary interest therein.

If UIPSC, with the concurrence of the Vice President for Research, determines that the university has no proprietary interest in the disclosed intellectual property under section 3.1 of OSU Policy and Procedures No. 1-0202, the inventor(s)/creator(s) shall so be notified and any further action pertaining to the invention shall be the sole responsibility of the inventor(s)/creator(s).
