First-to-File vs. First-to-Invent: Will Universities Be Left Behind?
Donohue, Matthew P.
Journal of College and University Law, v21 n4 p765-83 Spr 1995
The debate over whether patents should be granted to the first applicant to file, advocated by some industrialists, or to the applicant who first invented is examined. Relevant patent priority laws are outlined, arguments on both sides are presented, the arguments are related to universities, and ways in which university concerns can be met and interests protected are discussed.
