UNH's Logo Becomes a Registered Trademark

Monday, February 15, 2016
We are excited to share that UNH's logo has recently become a registered trademark. The federal registration of the logo will give UNH the legal protection and the right to determine when and how its logo is used, including with clothing and other commercialized products. The previously used “TM” notified other parties that UNH's logo was the property of UNH but not registered with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). Having a registered trademark will provide more assumptions and legal protections should an issue of improper use arise. Read More

In the Heart of the Valley: Learning How to Make More Successful Startups

The LLP Educators Seminar is a 2.5-day program designed for entrepreneurship educators who want to learn the basics of... Read More

Obtaining Patent Protection for Life Sciences Academic Research

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
Patent protection rewards an inventor with a 20-year monopoly for the public disclosure of their invention. In order to be granted a patent, an invention must meet the statutory requirements of Title 35 of the U.S. Code (35 U.S.C.), which are: patentable subject matter, adequate disclosure, usefulness, novelty, and non-obviousness. As a life scientist as well as student at UNH School of Law, I am most interested in how these statutory requirements present unique challenges to academic research, especially in the field of molecular biology (e.g. Molecular Pathology, Inc. v. Myriad Genetics,... Read More

Creative Commons: Diversifying Your Dissertation

Tuesday, November 17, 2015
While researching for UNHInnovation (UNHI), I stumbled upon an article about Creative Commons (CC) that sparked my interest. The article can be found here: http://creativecommons.org/tag/dissertation. In the article, Jane Park discusses how both Stanford and Berkeley University graduate students have been licensing their dissertations under Creative Commons. I think this is a novel idea and a new application for CC licenses, because it is a great way for graduate students to access a larger audience with their dissertation while retaining and controlling their copyrights.
