To Disclose or Not to Disclose? That is not the Question

Whether to disclose or not to disclose your innovation isn’t really a question when it comes to federal grants and funding. Prior to 1980, universities and small businesses that produced intellectual property under federal grants automatically gave the rights to those innovations to the federal government. Just like that, your team’s innovation was now owned by the government.
