To March-In or Not March-In: That is the Question

An expert panel discussion on march-in rights in federally-funded inventions

Did you know that the Bayh-Dole Act allows businesses (large and small), non-profit organizations, and academic institutions to obtain title to patents resulting from inventions developed through federal grants?  In exchange, the U.S. Government retains certain rights and control over these patents -- including the right to “march in” and compel licensing of the patented invention in any field of use, if certain conditions aren’t met.

This panel will survey the meaning and potential impact of this latent governmental power, including:

  • When march-in can happen, and the probability of it happening. 
  • Petitions in which where the government was asked to “march in.”
  • New interpretations that threaten to expand the scope and reach of march-in authority.

While March-In Rights loom across industries, certain advocates are now proposing creative governmental price control solutions using new interpretations of March-In Rights. Is this appropriate?  Or is this misconstruing the Bayh Dole Act and potentially reducing or eliminating interest in using federal funds for important research, particularly when the grantt recipient has made significant investments in the patented invention?
