Policy

Ownership of Service Invention & Invention Report

  • In accordance with the rules and regulations regarding a service invention, KAIST endows the patent rights and title to the persons who invented it (students, faculty, staff and researchers) while performing his/her services.
  • Persons who have invented while performing his/her services at KAIST are required to submit the following paperwork to TCC: invention report, conveyance, prior art search, and patent information abstract.
  • Even in the case of free inventions, that is, invented without any relationship to the performance of any work/service at KAIST, persons may hand over the ownership to KAIST. When signed over, KAIST will apply the rules and regulations pertaining to service inventions to the free invention. For this process, inventors are also required to submit an invention report, conveyance, prior art search, and patent information abstract to TCC.

Acquisition of Ownership

  • Upon receiving the invention report, KAIST shall inform the pertinent inventor the result within 4 months from the date of receipt.
  • The succession of rights will take effect from the date KAIST informs the inventor of the result.
  • Inventors shall not transfer their rights and/or patent filing of service inventions to third party(ies) prior to being informed of the final result of the succession of rights from KAIST.

Filing & Expenses

  • After the transfer of rights to the service invention to KAIST, KAIST is entitled to file a patent application as the institutional title holder. KAIST shall inform the pertinent inventor when this is done.
  • If necessary, under an agreement with the inventors, KAIST may take measures to cancel and renounce a patent application, and renounce patent rights.
  • If the inventor is deceased, or no longer belongs to KAIST, and neither the inventor nor his/her heirs can be reached, or their address is unknown, and considered there is little to possess the title and rights, KAIST may renounce, without the inventor’s agreement, the patent application and rights.
  • When government-designated research projects have an IPR management cost account, that account is available to manage the budget for IPR separately from research projects, for the cost of filing and registration of patents.
  • KAIST will make an assessment of service inventions. According to the results of that assessment, KAIST may determine to proceed with the filing of a patent or not, and may determine different financial assistance for filing and registration expenses.

Remuneration for Invention

  • When any income is received from the acquisition of ownership, patent title, exclusive license, or ordinary license, KAIST is to remunerate the inventors.
    If the inventors are more than a single person, the remuneration will be divided among the number of inventors initially reported.
  • If necessary, under an agreement with the inventors, KAIST may take measures to cancel and renounce a patent application, and renounce patent rights.
