Technology Transfer (Patent, Licensing, Trademark and Copyright)

The Office of Legal Affairs, both at the campus and at the Office of General Counsel, supports technology transfer and sponsored projects offices in their efforts to bring the benefits of University research to the public. The activities encompassed by “technology transfer” continue to evolve to include the many ways UC partners with industry (including patent and intellectual property licensing) to transform technological breakthroughs made by UC inventors into new products and services in the commercial marketplace.  The offices also provide legal advice on trademark and copyright issues, both within and beyond the University community.
