For academia, patents mean BIG $$

"The whole situation on patents and licensing has been very difficult for the last five or six years, and we are still not where we need to be," said Wayne C. Johnson, vice president of worldwide university relations for HP. "This is the single most complicated subject I have ever tackled professionally."
