UK UNIVERSITIES: PATENTS ON THE UP BUT INCOME FALLS


The Guardian reports that British universities’ income from intellectual property fell during 2002/2003 from £37million to £27million. During the same period, the number of patents granted to British universities almost doubled, the final figure being 371.

The IPKat is rather puzzled by the maths here. He suspects that maybe universities’ income from licensing patents they already own may be dropping.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
