Abstract: Indian universities and government-funded research organizations produce world-class research that is mostly published in scientific journals. While the society gains from the increased knowledge, the university or the government receives very little direct benefit. Developed countries like the United States have been encouraging similar institutions to secure their intellectual property rights in the new technology arising out of the research in addition to merely publishing in scientific journals. The United States has a long history of supporting technical research and has gradually evolved to this model. India should learn from the experience of the United States in this regard. Premier institutions of learning and research in the United Sates provide effective models that use patents and their licensing as tools for technology transfer This paper discusses a brief history of tech transfer in the United States, followed by a discussion of the Bayh-Dole Act, which served as a catalyst for the successful tech transfer regime in effect today. Various aspects of IP ownership are discussed, followed by a relevant case study.
