Growing conflict over nanotech intellectual property

Christine Peterson:An article in InformationWeek, while focused primarily on information technology, has lessons for nanotech as well:

"U.S. universities need to recognize they’re in a global showdown for research dollars. But sometimes they’re their own worst enemies in landing such funding. The culprit: The conflict over who gets the right to collect royalties on patents resulting from vendor-sponsored university research."
