After considering the invention disclosure for a.) novelty; b.) protectability; c.) marketability; d.) time to market; e.) money required for further development; f.) growth and size of market; g.) existing IP that may preclude the ability to practice the invention;  and h.) current competition; the TDC will make a determination if pursuing IP protection is in the best interest of OSU. If we do determine that we cannot pursue IP protection at this time, a TDC employee will work with the PI to determine potential trajectories for the invention.
