The Software and Data Licensing Solution:  Not Your Dad’s UBMTA

[Grand Canyon 1-2] 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

Big data is an open frontier, and it’s quickly expanding. However, transaction costs and legal barriers stand squarely in the way of meaningful, far-reaching data integration. We’ll grapple with the issues regarding a large-scale data integration project across humans, model and nonmodel organisms. Without pointing fingers, we’ll also share a few highlights from the (Re)usable Data Project, which outlined a five-part rubric to evaluate data licenses with respect to clarity and the reuse and redistribution of data. In addition, the topic raises the question: How well-suited are off-the-shelf software and data licenses for universities? Data scientists and software programmers are all too quick to pick one when they release their technology on GitHub. What should technology transfer professionals recommend? We’ll discuss the usefulness and attributes of a uniform software and data license for university researchers and software programmers.
 

What You Should Know About Recent and Future Patent Cooperation Treaty Developments

[Grand Canyon Ballroom 3-4] 2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m.

The Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT), an indispensable tool when seeking potential multinational patent protection, continues to develop and evolve. New amendments to the PCT regulations entered into force in July 2017. Make sure your understanding of PCT practice is up-to-date. In this session, an expert from the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) will share PCT best practices, provide an update on the most recent developments, and discuss the PCT’s future development plans of the PCT. We encourage you to ask questions during the session.
