Patent
AUTHOR

Issue(s) Presented

1. “Whether contractual language providing that patents ‘shall be the property of [an employing entity, here, the University of Michigan],’ without requiring any further acts from the parties, operates as an automatic assignment of future rights.” 2. “Whether, given Dr. Islam’s employment agreement, the University of Michigan’s bylaws and rules, and the parties’ course of conduct, Omni lacks standing to bring the underlying litigations because the patents were automatically assigned to the University before Dr. Islam’s attempted assignment of them to Omni.”
