This Amendment to clarify the 1997 Patent Acknowledgment or pre-1997 Patent Agreement, whichever document I last signed upon employment or appointment to the University of California, is made by me to carry out a present assignment of invention rights:
- For those who signed one of the pre-1997 Patent Agreements, add the underlined text: For good and valuable consideration, the parties agree to the following Amendment to the Patent Agreement by adding the following sentence: “In order to implement this Patent Agreement, I do hereby assign such inventions. For the avoidance of doubt, reference to ‘while employed by University’ is limited to actions within the course and scope of my University employment.”
- For those who signed the 1997 Patent Acknowledgment, add the underlined and delete the struck out text to paragraph 4: “I acknowledge my obligation to assign, and do hereby assign, inventions and patents that I conceive or develop within the course and scope of my University employment while employed by University or during the course of my utilization of any University research facilities or through any connection with my use of gift, grant, or contract research funds received through the University. I further acknowledge my obligation to promptly report and fully disclose the conception and/or reduction to practice of potentially patentable inventions to the
Office of Technology Transfer or University authorized licensing office. Such inventions shall be examined by University to determine rights and equities therein in accordance with the Policy. I shall promptly furnish University with complete information with respect to each.”
This Amendment does not apply to inventions or patents to which the University does not assert a right of ownership or title or to which the University has waived the right of ownership and title, in accordance with University policy.
