Report an Invention or Discovery

In OTTCP, we work with our faculty and other researchers to protect their ideas and inventions.

If you have an invention or idea for software or a technology that you think might be patentable or otherwise protectable—through copyright protection, for example—our team can help you.

We strongly advise that you submit invention disclosures or software disclosures well in advance of any anticipated publication or presentation, as public disclosure will eliminate foreign patent rights and may create complications for U.S. patent rights.

See the pages for submitting invention and software disclosures or contact any member of the OTTCP team today to begin the process of disclosing your software or invention.
