Item description for Managing Intellectual Property at Iowa State University (1923-1998) by Patricia B Swan...

Written by a former university official, Managing Intellectual Property at Iowa State University (1923-1998) provides a rare glimpse inside a university's management of intellectual property. Former Vice Provost and Dean Patricia Swan has captured many intriguing and often unexpected stories in her narrative, including accounts of the university's blue cheese patent that helped to establish the blue cheese industry in the United States; of an engineering professor who tried to help the farm economy by inventing new uses for corn stalks and new ways to remove the oil from soybeans; of losing the chance to patent the first electronic digital computer, but after many years aiding the inventor in establishing the priority of his invention; of an innovative method of feeding beef cattle that became the standard within the industry; of a major broadcasting firm that used fragments of a film made by two university students and denied doing so; of the university's research foundation almost losing its way in a morass of real estate deals; of the research foundation's pioneering actions in patenting plant materials; and, finally, its recovery aided by the successful pursuit of infringers of a patented technology used in modern facsimile machines. While telling these stories, Swan describes the circumstances in which they occurred as well as the associated finances. Although she focuses on the activities of Iowa State, at several points Swan compares Iowa State's experiences to those of the University of Wisconsin and other universities, while also describing some of the conditions external to universities that influenced intellectual property management through the years. Readers interested in the management of university intellectual property will find much food for thought in the richly described experiences. Those who are or have been associated with Iowa State University, will find revealed remarkable and previously unknown aspects of that revered institution's history.
