14.2.4 Assignment of Rights

If the Technology Licensing Section (TLS) cannot, or decides not to, proceed in a timely manner to patent and/or license an invention, TLS may assign ownership to the inventor or inventors upon request to the extent possible under the terms of any agreement with a sponsoring agency that supported or related to the work. In such cases, the inventor may request and be granted rights by the sponsoring agency to an invention made under such an agreement provided that a well-conceived and detailed plan for commercial development accompanies the request.
